  1. Currently on the train to the game. I reckon dees supporters outweigh the cats by 10 - 1! should be a sea of red and blue there tonight. will be great for the boys to play in front of a roaring crowd for the first time in a while!
  2. No! you could maybe shoot a cannon down there, still reckon you wouldn’t hit anyone!
  3. If for whatever reason Chook can't make it, I'll happily take it off your hands!
  4. Hey guys, much like every other Perth dees fan, I’d love a chance to get to the game as well. Even better for a chance to meet a couple of other dees fans for a beer or two before the game! Will just be me, as the 30 week pregnant wife is a non starter! For proof I’m not an eagles nuffie , I’m happy to supply video of me dancing like a moron after the end of the cats game! Ps - as I’m based in Perth, with a baby on the way, I’m no chance of making the grand final, so you can rest easy on that front!
  5. Clarrie for mine. though the amount of love the wife has for Harmes is starting to get a little worrying
  6. Regardless of how much money you make, going home to explain to the wife that you’ve been fined for doing something stupid is never a nice experience! Lewis joking said as much a couple of months ago, that his wife was less than impressed about his last indiscretion
  7. I’ve long been intrigued by statements if this ilk on demonland and other supporter forums. Do you think that Goodwin and the rest of the team are thinking ‘Dave from Perth is cool with it’ so we just won’t try this week? is there some form of after training event where we all get together and give the players hugs and hand out flowers? if not for the fact that they get paid bloody well to play footy, they’ve all grown up being the ‘alpha dog’ in their footy clubs growing up and being used to winning, and the fact that as humans the player don’t want to see themselves on the back page of the paper being the recipient of cheap shots from the media, surely that’s motivation enough. i call BS that the willingness of any football punter to accept mediocrity / demand greatness has anything at all to do with an individual football teams levels of motivation, desire, and general attitude around wanting to win on a weekly basis. For the record, I reckon we’ll beat the Eagles this week. Go dees
  8. I understand where you're coming from mate, and I completely agree. It's long been said that you're only as good as your bottom six, and sadly, our bottom six have been found wanting when the spotlight has been on us this year. That being said, my goals for the club aren't as lofty as some. Despite desperately wanting us to play well and make finals, perhaps being from Perth, I don't have the time / water cooler investment than a lot of you 'dyed in the wool' have. A few years ago, we were unwatchable, and at that time, all I wanted was to still be in the game at half time. As we got, better, all I wanted to was to be in the game at 3/4 time, then around the place at full time. Then I wanted us to stop having the 'melbourne' losses, against dockers etc (St Kilda this year not withstanding). Clearly we're on the right track. Our top end talent is all under 25, and pleasingly, falling over themselves to re-sign with the club for extended periods. Did I want to dominate 2018 and pinch a flag.. bloody oath i did. Am i devastated that Clarrie hasn't almost single handedly dragged us into the 4, not really. Given where we have been for the last 12 years, and the 50 before that, I can wait another year. Especially with the list we have, and the potential in that list.... so long as we're learning goody's lessons now. As much as I'd love a flag in 2018. I'll take 3 flags out of 6 between 2020 - 2025
  9. I think you're being harsh on Jetta on this basis. Rarely beaten for mine!
  10. Ryan nyhuis from Freo got three weeks for a similar tackle on Robbie gray I think. i remember at the time the commentary was similar ‘didn’t know the ball had jarred free’. didnt help him. Will be an interesting case for the afl of ‘first year rookie of an irrelevant club vs name player’ will get 2 weeks I reckon
  11. According to AFL.com is out of contract with the dogs and no certainty to get a new one. Given our ruck cupboard seems relatively bare, is he worth a look, as a cheap insurance policy for the great man?
  12. Hey! Daniel Chick did it with a finger, and look what a ripper bloke he turned out to be!
  13. Is it too soon to give Clarrie a 9 year contract (ala Franklin)? Pay him whatever, organise him a part time job at a box making factor, and give his girlfriend a job as well!
  14. I definitely remembering Woey saying he didn’t drink his entire Brownlow year
  15. Was just listening to Duck and Campbell Brown on AFL.com and they reckon that whilst a few weeks ago, it was accepted that you would make 13 wins to make the eight, with recent results, that 12 and a healthy percentage will get the job done. Thoughts? Edit - As an eternal optimist, I reckon we'll knock off cats, swans and gold coast, making this thread a moot point. I raised it, as one of the worlds great football thinkers (carey), a football savant if you will, was discussing it with the grand-daddy of modern thought (brown), and as such, I thought i'd relay it here. Also, I was bored of reading the 'go get gaff' thread, so I decided to start a new one!
