Todays opinion piece in the Western Australia Zoltan Kovaks take the prize as the biggest load of crap written in our daily paper…and that is saying something.
Fair enough, criticise the Fremantle Football club for their inconsistent form. Criticise them for some of their draft picks….but Zovaks has no idea about the soul of the club…no idea at all.
Soul does not come from success….some might say it comes from how the club responds to defeats….
Was Zovak around in 2001 when Fremantle crowds still turned up in number to cheer the club when it won only two games and brought the wooden spoon home? No….he was off sipping lattes somewhere.
I was there, during rain drenched nights…I heard the crowd cheering, groaning…but all the time still supporting. I saw the crowd numbers tick over which would give a club like North Melbourne heart.
I was there when we marched from Fremantle to Subiaco to declare our heart is in Fremantle, and unlike the manufactured corporate Eagles, we wanted to be based in the Football heartland of Perth, Fremantle.
