Surely Peter Bell back to the club is a positive and then if this happens... they'll finally have a decent forward


And with Danylle Pearce retiring... its all good news at the dockers! 

Comments

  • He's been on the board for a few years now, funny how he was part of the decision making process to knife Bond then took his job - well played  :))

    If I was Freo i'd be looking at fresh blood for that role not Bell.

    Conca off to the Dockers, signed a three-year deal. Richmond to receive a second-round compensation pick (currently pick 36).

    maybe thats what he's saying... no interesting news..... 

    conca, wasnt he the bloke that king hit someone walking off the field a few years back? 
    If he played most the season for Richmond this year, he must be a pretty good player methinks..

    Jesse Hogan will be good if they can get him !

    i think Hogan will flop at the dockers. Happy to eat the most humblest of pies if he comes good and they win flags etc, but its just my opinion from hearing a few things around the traps.

    Just a bit of attempted humour boys !!!!
  • TiversTivers    6,703 posts
    I don't recall Conca hitting anyone.
    Has had some injuries, but got a game in first 189 when fit all this season yes.
    Very good pick up for Freo.
    Must have thrown some $$ at him to get him away from top of the table.

    I don't rate Hogan AT ALL, no.
    Athletic, but just doesn't have the footy nous.

    Chased after then smashed Devon Smith in the back of the head from behind with a forearm while he was running off the ground. I'm a tiger but that was a dog act from Reece.

    Confirmed.

    Huge call from Gaff turning down that coin.

    Fair play to him! Seems nobody wants to play at North not even for silly overs.

    Martin, Kelly, Heeney, Treloar now Gaff

    Dorkers loose Neale and Weagles keep Gaff.

    About sums up the difference between the two clubs if both are true

    Don't sell Freo short Rio.
    They managed to keep Harley, Ballantyne and Sandi.
    If Gaff is staying wonder which players took paycuts, ala Reiwoldt at the Tigers ?

    I reckon the release of Lycett, probably helped and if they can get that Geelong player(Tim Kelly), he will come in on the minimum as a rookie sign on.

    So he may be on a 2 year deal for $700k and 4 years for $1mil or something like that....Only guessing. But i think the spirit is so good, no one would need to take a pay cut.

    You put Gaff and NicNat in the GF team, and its about teh same as having 2 high quality recruits.
  • TheDivaTheDiva    11,101 posts
    im kind of glad we missed out on Gaff.... he was too expensive at that sort of coin. 
  • H-BOMBERH-BOMBER    6,516 posts
    I wonder what the decision process would have been with gaff if they went out in straight sets.

    That was everyone was saying about Masten, and mainly Eagles nuffies saying it, now a Premiership player, stuck it up so many of his own fan haters.

    A good WCE man like yourself Brady, would have known he would come good. I'm glad he did as he was much maligned, and has worked on his game.

    How terrible would this be, Gaff & Kelly come in, Sheed back to Magoo's. 6 months a longtime in footy.

    Whatever happens with Sheed, he will always have September 2018.
    Hope he gets to play lots of league games in years to come. Could be forced out at West Coast though.

    his efficiency improved out of site over the last 4 or 5 games. If he keeps that up and he gets the ball as much as he used to, then there will be a spot for him in most games...the same happened to Gaff late last year when this game plan started to click.

    get the ball out wide and quick and suddenly their disposal looks sensational. Worked for both Gaff and Sheed.

    Glad he got his moment in the sun, no matter what the future holds he is the bloke that kicked the goal to win a cup!!

    Why would anyone want to go to Fremantle ie Lobb there is some things money can't buy and playing for The Freo **** fish is one of them

    Bennell on the trade table.
    Apparently was a no show at Freo F&B. Belly stamping his authority early.
    I would suggest that "Ross the Boss" could be in for a rocky ride this year.
    The brand has been severely damaged under his watch the past few years. Bell will be all about turning things around both on and off the field.
    Ross may not be receptive to someone telling him how to go about things to improve the image of the club. Starting with playing a game style that delivers more than 10 goals a game.
    Could be an interesting year.
