Something something global warming

Also, Daisy Pearce should’ve gone with the balaklava.

Please, you're getting my hopes up here
A 104 point thumping! Their percentage is down to 93.8. They've got Freo @ Optus then the Pies at the G. They could be gawn!

And North score 1.8.14 for the whole game. Their lowest score ever.

Saints score a goal with 39 seconds left on the clock to win. Freo just blew a big top 8 chance.

Talkin’ about “what a player”, Darcy “Thunder Thighs” Fogarty gave me a semi-chub yesterday.

Feel free to print that.

Yeah that one where he went studs up on Barrass in the leg wasn't great.

Don't know if he deserved a free against for the one late in the game though.

Back to back Pies/Bombers games if that happens.
That bombers* percentage is horrendous for a supposed top 8 team. Obviously it’s not set in stone as they have yet to play Friday night, but god they’re a pretty lucky team to make the top 8. Them and GWS to be honest.

Dumb questions, bt looking at the standings and then googling it, wins are worth 4pts and ties 2pts. Why not just make it 2pts and 1pt?

Is there a historical reason?

Nobody really knows but apparently when the game first started in the 1800s, you got 1 point for each quarter you won. Then they just made it 4 points if you win the game.

They must have someone else lined up to be the new coach so dumped him now.

They were going nowhere with Ross anyway.

David Hale is Freo's interim coach.

It looks like former Docker player and current Collingwood assistant coach Justin Longmuir could be the person Freo are after to be head coach.
