Round 6

1st Quarter – Get down to the “The Bounce Down” for the news of the week and a forensic report on last week’s game

Switch on to the “THE BOUNCE DOWN” and hear the purple circus panel painfully accept the Round 5 loss to the Sydney Swans. Was it the goal-less second quarter combined with Buddy’s four goal second half that blew the rocker-cover gasket and foiled the chance of an away game win?

 

2nd Quarter – “The Crack” with special guest David Hatt (Fremantle Football Club’s inaugural CEO)

David Hatt joins us on “THE CRACK” and recalls 7 years as the inaugural CEO leading what was nothing short of an herculean effort to establish a club at a time that was not all beer and skittles – but as it had to be done – limestone block by limestone block  – against the odds but with many successes along the way – come hear and marvel at the story of how it was done.

 

Half time at the football – the breaking news on all things that are AFL podcasts. Our melancholy duty is to inform you that our brother-in-arms “Schammertime” has been stretchered off with significant soft tissue injuries and will not be returning to the www waves until further notice. BUT as often in life itself, when one door closes another seems to open, only this week we have discovered another that a new AFL podcast had emerged from its chrysalis. Produced by the crew of THE FOOTY ALAMANC, a bunch of east coast sports scribes, who, having been given a condenser microphone and external sound-card for Christmas, have now reached the pod-o-sphere – we welcome them.

 

3rd Quarter – “The Fan Belt” with Professor Pollyanna a Docker from Canada who grew-up playing ice-hockey in the tundra 

Check out this week’s “FAN BELT” with Professor Pollyanna (the one and only high-profile Dockerland regular), who happens to be the most AFL knowledgeable Canadian in Western Australia, as he talks about his love for AFL and all of the purple passion pollyannas from NORTH AMERICA.

 

4th Quarter – “The Cross-Town Smear” – hear hear, this week’s smear! 

Join the lampooning popularity of the “THE CROSS-TOWN SMEAR”, listen to the professors of smear-o-logy dissect the rampant inequities of Perth’s two rivalrous football teams. Turn it up and recoil faster than a political favour pinned to a bottle of $3,000 1959 Grange as this week’s Eagles’ tribute song – “Cherry Pie” by Warrant – hits your auditory senses – a sure hit for every blue and yellow betrothal.

 

The Final Siren – are we safe at home versus the Roos?

Due to forgetfulness we start with Round 5 votes in the Purple Heart Award, these went to Matthew Pavlich, Lachie Neale, Matthew Pavlich, Matthew Pavlich. Then we review the Round 6 clash with the Roos. We’ve called it 4-0 to the Dockers by anywhere between 2-7 goals as the combination of a home ground fixture and the rebound factor give us more than enough for the middling Roos – and when are they going to move to the TRUE NORTH – DARWIN – there’s plenty of wallaby fans there!
