When I come home from a Dockers loss…I am normally despressed, philosophic, struggling to find positives.
That was a gutsy effort from the young lads in purple.
Nick De Ber, Garrick Ibbotson…Stephen Hill….all played awesome games.
Sandilands is the best ruckman….and certainly playing better than his much more fancied cross town rival.
That was the best game I have seen him play.
Talking of best games, I have not seen Tarrant play a better one that today, at least while dressed in purple. He kept his opponent, Mooney, to a nil goal score line. Pretty impressive, and the knowledgable Fremantle crowd showed their appreciation.
If…McPharlin had bought his kicking boots on, if the umpire had paid the blatant free kick to McPharlin (that was the worst decision all day, but the umpiring was poor all day)…then we might have sneaked a win.
It was not to be, but what a great game of football, seriously, the best one I have seen the Dockers play all year, and that includes their wins.
