GAME NOTES:ย Fremantle has embarked on a new era after last year’s disastrous 4-win campaign and is expected to be much more competitive in 2017. Club great Matthew Pavlich has hung up the boots, but the Dockers have recruited Cam McCarthy (GWS) and former Cat Shane Kersten in attack, along with premiership players Bradley Hill (Hawthorn) and Joel Hamling (Bulldogs). Superstar Nat Fyfe returns from a broken leg to lead the club for the first time as captain. Fyfe watched with envy last season as Patrick Dangerfield claimed his crown as the AFL’s best player, and seeing the Brownlow medallists lock horns again will be worth the price of admission. The Cats have faced a summer of questions about their reliance on midfield stars Dangerfield and skipper Joel Selwood following their humiliating preliminary final defeat to Sydney. How Chris Scott’s men bounce back, without retired champions Corey Enright and Jimmy Bartel, will be one of the season’s intriguing storylines.

  1. Late change for GeelongCats with ruckman Zac Smith out, replaced by Jackson Thurlow. Dockers go in as named. #AFLFreoCats

    Sandilands to go big?

      1. Fyfe’s not going badly โ€“ he’s up to 35 now โ€“ but Dangerfield is going better so far (now up to 45).

      1. I think as an interim thing we should just track the DT scores. It won’t be perfect, but it should give us a rough idea of how each player is going.

  4. Is it just me or does Shane Kersten remind anybody of Jack Anthony.

    A case of a player having one solid season and getting an inflated contract elsewhere

      1. Probably not.

        I think it was FURL who at one time described Thomas as the best player in the league.

        Thomas was a top 10 draft pick also so I would say Thomas is now a has-been whereas Kersten is a never was been

      1. 20% of people forgot that he only attracted the third or fourth best defender in GWS’ forward line, and that he was getting much better delivery there, too.

        1. To clarify, I didn’t mean to suggest that McCarthy would be dropped โ€“ he won’t be. Just that job security doesn’t mean much if he doesn’t score anything.

  8. I almost considered trading in Thurlow for Stewart at the last minute when I heard he was playing. Thank goodness I didn’t have enough coin to do it.

  10. This is completely irrelevant, but there’s a picture on the top of the AFL website of Tim Watson, Hamish McLachlan, and some Robinson Crusoe-looking guy. It’s been there for a few days, now. I’ve only just realised that the beardy one is Garry Lyon! He looks like he’s been sleeping in the gutter or something.
