Just to clarify for those who can’t get it to roll off the tongue, a derby (darby) is a race while a derby (derby or doiby) is a fight. East Fremantle v South Fremantle is the originalfight or doiby (Irish). WC v Freo is a battle/fight, not a horse race.

AD, you mention injury for Hawthorn and Richmond’s big 4…but no mention of 8 best 22 players missing at Freo.

Why is injury an explanation for some teams and not for others?

Of course, anon, you have called for every coach in the AFL to be sacked over the years. That is not a new call…just a cut and paste.

Brendon Bolton, it's time to pack your bags

Waltzing?

AFL media misses the point, yet again

Tells me more about “Trends”. I’m looking for a website that allows me to talk about footy. The Roar doesn’t allow me to do that.

Any other sites that allow discussion?

It’s the fact Barrett has a voice that annoys me.

It’s what TV viewers miss about Hayden Ballantyne and why he’ll be straight back when the hammy passes the test.

I’m with you, Cam.

I’d add the WA Derby. Every moment was gripping and I was so disappointed as the minutes elapsed each quarter. That game seemed too short.

WC had to really scramble to ward off a relentless Freo. The scrappy element is just a part of some games…and an engrossing part.

He sounds nothing like me. I have been banned for suggesting Macca’s “Hogan will end up like Sylvia” comment was sick.

Brendon Bolton and Stephen Silvagni are dead men walking at Carlton

Record Derby crowd…no loss if those that switch off disappear. The passionate ones will keep on growing in number.

Nothing wrong with a fumble or a crook kick. It just makes it less predictable. The contest continues.

'No easy fix' for timid Crows' issues

I remember yet another finals appearance but I can’t say crowd behaviour ever being an issue. What was the complaint?

I guarantee JOHN ALLAN did not mean that Dave Warner.

Dustin Martin cops fine for gestures, apologises on social media

Handscomb is no more obvious than Bancroft. Both kept all JLT ODD.

Shane Warne has picked his preferred World Cup squad, and it's peak Shane Warne

It will only be theatre and fun. Freo crowds are not nasty.

I’d expect people to be disappointed if they are expecting spite. That might happen in suburban leagues but you are looking at quality players here with eyes on a different priorities.

That story is well and truly over. Brayshaw, however, is in poor form and might find himself playing at Peel.

It’s hard to know why the Saints “should have” won that game. Freo dominated.

The score was close…ish but that was despite Saints kicking 2 in the closing stages when the game was unwinable and despite McCarthy taking a chest mark 20 metres out just before the siren that was inexplicably disallowed.

Saints were always scrambling to catch up.

Pros and cons in Round 3 of the AFL

It sure is. I’ve seen them do that for many a season and this season looks like being more of that. Enjoy the ride…in fact, come along.

Five teams to catch in the AFL

Whiteman, Bancroft, Phillippe…but I’d pick Carey.

Some teams still have to catch the team that’s 3rd on the table. They’re only going to get stronger.

I’m hoping it will be increased. How in the world can Richmond think that is OK?

Dustin Martin, Tigers to challenge AFL suspension

I’m sure they’ll keep a lid on it. Their supporters may not…that’s a supporter’s prerogative…but that will not impact on how the Giants play at all.

With Greene and Ward to return and Kelly playing his first, The Giants can read stacks into it. The return of those players will improve them more than the return of Reiwoldt, Rance and Grimes will improve the Tiges. These are the Giants’ play makers.

When they are all fit, we have 30 genuine first 22 players.

Hopefully 25 games this year will give them all a chance but some of them will be missing the flag.

AFL team of the week: Round 3

There is no problem.

As I said, “Don’t expect The Eagles to score as easily against that Freo back line.”

Don’t expect The Eagles to score as easily against that Freo back line.

On Fyfe, Freo rest players for 4 weeks for something as small as a mosquito bite. They won’t even be considering him for next week. He’s a definite out.
