Just for those following who will get Harley Reid. While hawks are firm favourites, so are Melbourne....who have the Dockers’ future first-round pick and the Dockers’ future second-round pick because of jackson. 

Great to know that we’re on one of the lines of favouritism to get Harley Reid while still being a strong contender for the flag. And even in the likely event that we don’t get young Harley, it’s good to know that we are going to end up with some quality young players if the Dockers continue to be putrid - all thanks to the benevolence of Mr. Bell.

What about Archer Reid? Sounds like a great fit for us and at 203cm and 93kgs, sounds ready for AFL.

The Suns are at their best on their own home turf and are pathetic when the opponent has home ground advantage. Neither applies next week when they play the Dockers at Norwood Oval where hopefully the red and blue army will be out in force supporting them and adding some more nails to the Freo coffin.

Omg, imagine this for a scenario.

Round 23, Melb plays Hawthorn.

A Melb loss sees us retain top spot being two games clear and  Hawthorn move off the bottom of the ladder replaced by Freo who end up with the wooden spoon and pick 1 goes to the dees. 

Geez that would be awkward.

Probably be done for tanking.

Our luck would be we field our Casey team and win after the siren.

We can dream.

I reckon they may as well put the Suns in the bin. A terrible football club.

Terrible coach. St Kilda and Gold Coast were about equal at the end of last year in potential and most would have had Gold Coast ahead of Saints in pre-season prognostications. I had both outside top eight.

St Kilda only have about 28 players to pick from yet they have desire, structure and purpose in spades. I don't think I've seen a better example of coaching making a difference. He's a weird bloke Ross Lyon but he can certainly coach. A couple of those players are going to be stars of the competition. To name a couple Owens and Caminiti. 

And just a note of sobriety to all our frothing at Freos failures (myself included) that Caminiti was last player on a list in 2023, overlooked by everyone. Draft picks don't win premierships.

I could be jumping gun here but they absolutely reek of Melbourne 2019.

Yet for completely different reasons. Ours was with so many coming back from surgery, not enough of a pre season to be fit enough etc. Theirs is self inflicted poor list management.

Look, I’m not saying I’m not enjoying this, cos I am. But I’m not going to get too excited until much later in the year and their current form stands.

They just can't kick a score, they may as well have the second worst fwd line in the league.

Hawthorn 

Hawthorn's forward set-up looked ok against North last week. Brockman looked the goods kicking 3. They definitely played better than anything Freo have served up this season so far

There are some awfully smug people on this forum. lol

We have a game on today. We should win easily but there are no guarantees.

What if eagles come out blazing they could jump us  especially if the umps run with them.

Atleast they cant turn off the lights.

Mate, this is supposed to be a fun thread (i.e. not serious/objective assessment on Freo).

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
