Pretty good book

I like reading Fremantle Dockers An Illustrated History in bed.

I’VE been a bit quiet lately. First because of the suspension that meant me and Ballas had to miss the St Kilda game.

 

I’m a bit embarrassed about getting a week but I suppose I had it coming after Ballas took the rap for me last year.

Me and Ballas giggled when Bondy read out my charge from the match review panel           ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Frankie, Fremantle, has been charged with a Level Two Naughty Behaviour offence (225 points, two-match sanction) for tripping Thomas Bugg, GWS Giants, during the third quarter of the Round 17 match between Fremantle and the GWS Giants, played at Patersons Stadium on Sunday July 13, 2014.
 
In summary, due to her previous good record, her two-match sanction can be reduced to one game with an early plea.
 
Based on the video evidence available and a medical report from the GWS Giants Football Club, the incident was assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point), cheeky (one point) and naughty (two points). This is a total of seven activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level Two Offence, drawing 225 demerit points and a two-match sanction. She has an existing good record. An early plea reduces the sanction to a one-match sanction.

It is alleged that Frankie stood at the feet of player Bugg so the player would trip over her when pushed by Fremantle player Hayden Ballantyne. Video evidence suggests this was a planned maneuver. Player Frankie barked with some delight when player Bugg hit the ground.

“It’s not funny you two,” Bondy said and we stopped laughing.

Now Ballas shouldn’t have swatted that Bugg. I shouldn’t have done what I did but Bugg did come looking for trouble that day I reckon.

Early in the second quarter Bugg was trying to push Pav around. Pushing Pav! I reckon he should have been asking for Pav’s autograph not pushing him. Then he annoyed Ballas and I was close by and I hope he learned a lesson. And Ballas and me will never do something exactly like that ever again.

Anyway it was good to play again on Thursday night and rounding Lachie Neale up and putting him in the right spot in the last minute.

The other reason I’ve been quiet is that I’ve been reading.

Fremantle Dockers: An Illustrated History is out and I’m loving it. I haven’t read it all just the chapter about the AFL Canine Draft and some of the heroes to have come out of it… well one hero. I read that chapter over and over.

  1. Hi Frankie, love your work. The Dockers , illustrated history is top notch. Maybe the next edition can have a signing page for my footy heroes.
