Yep happens way to often and not just in the backline, and even though he has not played recently Taberner is a serial offender.

Makes my blood boil when three players go up for the same mark. [mad]

Question of the week: what is rarer a honest politician or a good game from Ballas?

I agree with the sentiment of people giving the young guys some breathing space. 

You wanted to play the kids you got the kids, along with all the mistakes.  

I would look more harshly on Bradley Hill who did some rubbish deliveries into the forward 50 and couldn't nail a goal. 

Looking at it in context I agree with Ross, they didn't give up and with some polish and accuracy they would have won the game against a side that is supposed to be top four and has two great KPPs. 

I'm glad to have the Domain Derby behind us and looking forward to a new era.

With Brad Hill, playing with a team like Hawthorn I feel made him look a far better player ,with very skilled players around  feeding him. Yes he has speed, and i would love to be wrong about him but somehow I  think  the call of playing with his brother and being back home was the reason he left Hawthorn.
Plus he has 3 medals around his neck from his old club.  A feat he may never know again at the dockers.
From memory i don't think brad cost us anything, and i pray he can lift and help teach the young ones with his experience he must have learned  or should have at Hawthorn.

Have faith DF, Brad Hill will experience another premiership win, and it will be not that far away.

It is a mystery as to why his kicking was so inaccurate in the Derby, but he wasn't alone as we know. We have to hope that this Saturday night we will see a better kicking performance from the whole team, with Brad leading the pack.

Have to tell you once again about  the lot that sit in the same area as me, in block 312.There was another kerfuffle with the older gent and the father who constantly heckles the Dockers players.They dress as Dockers supporters, but, fair dinkum you would swear they are Toasters supporters.
It got interesting because the old fella had a red hot go at the loud mouth.Called him out as being a DH a FW etc. You get the drift.Turned out the loud mouth called security, he was upset because the old fella swore at him.Have to tell you it was a bit of excitement.
Be interesting to see how things go Saturday night.

Improver one,Taylin Duman.

Improver two, Brett Bewley.

I think Brad Hill is doing a lot more at Fremantle than he needed to do at Hawthorn. He gets more freedom to make a play at Fremantle and I think as a result he stuffs up more.  He is a seriously good player I reckon, he just needs to find his equilibrium.  But that was a serious shi@ game from him on Sunday.

Funny Goby if he slots those three goals then not so shi@ game , It's a fine line sometimes . He get's more of the ball at Freo , I have him in my fantasy team and he scored 109 for the derby which is a good score , But if he kicks straight and added three goals he scores 124 a very good score, remember these fantasy games only go on stats.Now Hayden Ballantyne that was a shi@ game
