Club statements ???? i am citing live TV statements seen by all. You obviously do not watch television, or are in denial and are living in a dream world hiding from the truth. Your like the club, full of excuses.

AFL fans can't pick and choose when to care about mental health

You cannot blame the media on this one, Bell, Lyon and Allcock faced the cameras on TV with different versions. Karl Langdon also faced the camera’s to say he told his good friend Bell and Rosich the issues and pictures of Jessie’s ongoing alcohol problems. There is no gossip or rumours here by the so-called sports journalists.

Spot on Doug, Melbourne and Adelaide losing at home, equals last i agree….Subsequently Port and Hawthorn are 1 and 2. Adelaide have and always will be very hard to beat at home….I would not be writing them off just yet. Great to see Freo and the Lions win but both at home against injury depleted and suspended stars.

AFL Power Rankings 2019: Round 1

The new rules obviously impacted the score board for Freo…….Not Ross Lyon ! It has taken away a lot of his negativity. The pace and work of new additions Schultz and Colyer was also huge.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 1

I agree Grints

Eight talking points from AFL Round 1

Jack Steven took time out, handled it well. Freo have allowed Jessie to run amok at alcohol parties since October obvious to all….. and Freo have failed to deal with it. Then Bell say’s he is being stood for alcohol abuse…..Then Lyon say’s no it is not the case, the doctor told me it is because of anxiety…..Then Allcock comes out with something different again. The club needs to get there act together.

Resurgence ! ONE game against a weak team at home……..Let us check out the resurgence after the Derby and Quality opposition on the road. Port to win at the MCG was clearly number one, Hawthorn two and Lion’s three all though the Eagles had some guns out Gaff, Rioli, Kennedy, Cripps and Nic Nat.

AFL Power Rankings 2019: Round 1

Winners-Carlton-Collingwood-Melbourne-Adelaide-Footscray-Brisbane -St.Kilda-Essendon-Fremantle. If Freo lose this one there will me a lot more anxiety. It will be a big next week for Macca and Col. Good Luck !

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 1

Jessie has clearly got anxiety and alcohol problems plus his old school mates are not helping. I am not religious but i am praying that the other evil in society is not involved.

Freo's Hogan banned for alcohol slip-up

As this article says, and Bell said Jessie is being stood down because of drinking……. breaking team rules.
Lyon then comes out saying ”NO that is not the case it is the doctors saying it is because of his anxiety”
The club needs to get its act together..fast.

Anon It is that, quite simple……

Freo's Hogan banned for alcohol slip-up

With all the developments over night this is looking more like alcohol binge drinking since he came home in October than anxiety. Karl Langdon personally approached Bell and Rosich with evidence warning them to look closely before recruiting him. As David Schwartz warned Hogan stop hanging around D….Heads. Hopefully this is not going to get a lot uglier.

Freo's Hogan banned for alcohol slip-up

Jessie has delivered, he has won a Rising Star award and kicked 152 goals in 71 games and spending time up the ground as well, his football cannot be questioned.

Since Harley has been at Freo, he has been ejected from a plane once, removed from the ground at 3/4 time break at Rushton Park. Twice evicted from hotels for being under the influence of alcohol, that is four times not one.

No drinking is fine……… but just keep your hands to yourself or it can become an issue.

I agree Steve, but Freo’s multiple numbers recently including the coach are way worse than any other club. I am with you i hope Jessie can get it right, his game last week showed his class. We need him badly and i am getting tired of excuses and being a club who is showing no signs of improvement.

The Loss of Hogan and Cox will be more than offset by North\’s loss of 4 of of there best six defenders 3 with injury and suspended Scott Thompson so please no more excuses, plus playing at home. McCarthy gets a chance to step up as does the out of form for (3 yrs) Ballantyne who Ross will stick with. Personally i would play the new kids before him Schultz and Co, or youngsters Crowden or North but Ross will not risk that unfortunately.

Just for the record the car park incident was on the Freo website between 6.00am and 6.30am Perth time this morning . It is not there now ?

The big issue here is the club have offered Jessie close to $40,000 a game knowing he had issues. This is blatant stupidity at its best. Steven, Martin, Beams, Cloke and many others have not hit the local pubs for a cure. Excuses for Lyon and the club are way to thin. It is time for a new look club with new faces in the coaching and fitness staff. Hopefully Bell can recognize this sooner than later.

Peter Bell has not told the members of CCTV incident in a licensed car park at Mandurah with Jessie and another Freo player where he sustained rib injuries on Saturday.

Freo's Hogan banned for alcohol slip-up

As a member i am disappointed Bell refused to say when the club was aware of Jessie’s alcohol related problems. Because he refused to to say when it appears though they knew before they offered him nearly $40,000 a game which is a very poor choice. It is sad that Jessie has had some tough times in the past but alcohol is not a excuse.

Ross is not a renovator or a builder and can’t even fill up his car with petrol to travel to a game at Mandurah.

One thing you can bet on and win is Essendon will finish way above Carlton. Healthy list they will give top 4 a shake.

Five bold predictions for the 2019 AFL season

Ross made a “Bold Opinion” yesterday he told everyone how good he is and he will not get the sack. He also said Freo will win Premierships………Just a matter of time, he said

Five bold predictions for the 2019 AFL season

Lyon released targets also yesterday, telling everyone how good he is and he will not get the sack. Premierships for Freo are just a matter of time he also said. We just have to keep the shoulder on the wheel . I suppose you have to have belief though. But it will not happen while he is there………….
