I wonder if Eagles topics will get off topic like they did in Peels forum.I hope OFA will keep a close eye on these topics.


The difference is that the Fledglings are putting money into the WAFL whereas the crabs have consistently been like the CFO of Leighton or the non entity that remains unidentified in the news taken buckets loads away from the other clubs.

So the Eagles raved and savaged one of the great club as of the WAFL, are all of a sudden the saviour of the WAFL?

Grump, are you really serious about that statement on the Eagles ressies!!!!
This is the scourge that sent your much loved club into deep deep depression.You can't be serious.As I said they ravaged and savaged your once magnificent club and now you are giving them a bouquet.
Fremantle have been funding the Peel club since moving down there.They are helping the juniors down there as well.
It surprises me you are backing the Eagles in this.

It is the move that should have happened at the outset, yep they did a viking on my club but I see this as a positive move.

They have tried 3 alignments and none have ever really worked for them and definitely not the clubs, in this move they can play their own team, bring some money into the coffers of the clubs they play unless folk decide to boycott the games due to lack of interest or through some misguided attempt to show contempt.

I think it is a way forward.

Totally agree with your first sentence.Both AFL clubs should have been given stand alone sides.But the past is the past.
It will only be a matter of time before Fremantle get their own as well.

Rightly or wrongly this single topic is making the WAFL relevant again. This can only be a good thing for all clubs.
Imagine how much media coverage this will generate on 7 during the season.
I hope this leads to greater gate and bar takings for the homes clubs.


You make a good point about there being increased WAFL media coverage for this time of year, Champ Kinds, and hopefully this flows through to the actual season.
I've never been a fan of West Coast and East Perth's time aligned to them has made me dislike the Weagles even more (if that's possible).
However, with five WAFL matches per round instead of four, I'll be interested to see how season 2019 turns out.
Hopefully Eagles supporters make an effort to attend their team's games, spend a few bucks at their opponent's bar and, in doing so, realise what a great comp the WAFL is.
I'll save my judgement on whether West Coast's admission to the WAFL has been a success until after the 2019 season is over.

I come on to Oz footy to read my favourite 3 or 4 sites, so must admit that I have only just this morning, come across the WCE ressies site. Going back through all the pages of posts, I am now convinced that it will be no more that an Eagles bashing sessions, so good luck to the moderator! While I have stated that I am a rabid Sharks member and supporter and have been for over 60 years, I am also a very keen Eagles supporter, so this will become one of my favourite sites as well. I look forward to all the doom and gloom coming from the “Seans” of Oz footy. Time for some people to adjust their calendars from 1980 to 2019.

I am hoping that the new team will give the competition a bit of life and perhaps attract more people to games particularly some people who would normally only go to AFL matches. It also evens up the competition in that everyone plays each other twice and WAFL clubs get an extra home game so a lot of positives here. I think this model is a lot better than the East Perth alignment arrangement we have been enduring for the past 5 years.

This shit ain't rocket science. 60'000 + members.


And not one of those members give a crap about the WAFL. How many made the effort to watch East Perth in the last 5 years.

I don't believe your point stands up to scrutiny.

As an Eagles supporter, I would be far more inclined to watch their reserves side, running around in Eagles jumpers, than I would to watch and East Perth side which includes some listed Eagles players.

I doubt I would be an orphan in that regard.

Spot on. Never had any interest in watching EP play, even with the Eagles players. Unless they were playing the Sharks of course!!
