Frogspread

Written by Duck on 4:04 am, May 15 2009

He is the sort of bloke you love to whack at any opportunity. Tall, skinny, balding and with an ass borrowed from a frying pan the bloke had to be good at something. Sports it is and the broomstick looking fucker is very very very competitive. With solid stint in the WAFL culminating in a runner up medal only to the great Dean Kemp in the Sandover count…given a crack at the AFL this bloke coulda won a brownlow.

Short And Sweet

Written by duck on 6:50 am, May 12 2009

Ablett will sit out another week, that must make the guys that traded him feel a bit better that they didn’t react too quick, i didn’t have him anyway so i’m hoping he’ll be out for a few more.

Marty Clarkes‘ had a win, he’s been cleared of tripping and avoided getting into strife for touching an umpire …. very happy to hear this as my team is depleted as it is.

Jack Ziebell has earnt himself an Rising Star nomination  and no doubt his price will be rising because of it, nice one Jack.

Players that might make a return this week …
