Us Perth supporters have been set up for a fall so many times over the years these days I take a "I'll believe it when I see it" view or as you say PD, when I see him run out in red and black. Let's take last two years for example.

Last year we sign 2 ex Casey Scorpion players Giobi and Cox. One breaks a fingernail in the off season and goes home never to return. Giobi stayed and looked handy and capable but after just one season has departed.

The previous year there was all this excitement after Mzungu signed, then gets snapped up by GWS, tears a hammy in the pre season, plays a handful of games for GWS and comes back to WA but takes a job with Fremantle and plays a bit of country or ammos footy for fun.

I can see the same thing happening with Johnno. Already talk Fremantle will offer him an indigenous role and probably get talked into playing a handful of bush footy games for good coin.

I reckon the bloke that called 6PR with a rumour that Michael Barlow was going to play for Perth was taking the piss. I hate to say it but I can see us going backwards again next year. Can see EF, Swans Peel and East Perth all sweeping past us next year unless the football department get their shit together.

Weren't some of those clubs already in front of Perth? And some were behind, and those were that were behind I don't think will necessarily sweep past either.

I see the enigmatic Zareth Roe has been added to the list along with Carl Green from EF.

Freezn looks to me that Carl is a resreves player at best.
I hope we are not wasting points on him.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog.

That is disappointing Mr AFL. I was under the impression he was under contract and very happy at the club.
Do we know why???

Makes it very important if we get that other player you mentioned assuming he misses the draft.
