Dockers vs North Melbourne Rd 12 2008

One of the guys that we do a lot of business with had three tickets for the football to offer us. It was for an AFL match between the Fremantle Dockers and the North Melbourne Kangaroos. The Dockers had recently set a record of losing five matches in a row when leading at three quarter time. The put an end to the nonsense last weekend when trailing from half time to lose the match against the Brisbane Lions.

It was a lovely day. Spent the morning at work and went with Martin from work and Jose from site met us there later. Nice seats in the Dockers members' area not far from the action. I could tell that it would be a good day for the Dockers when I saw Shaun McManus only 20 minutes before bouncedown in a suit. If he wasn't going to play I thought that they were in with a chance.

In the end the Dockers were far too strong for a decidedly, and unusually, soft North Melbourne. Considering that the coach of the Kangaroos is from Perth and loves to beat the locals the inept performance, following a gutsy close loss to the reigning premiers last weekend, was inexplicable and unexpected. I had tipped the Dockers to win however. Great afternoon.

The Dockers are chokers just like Port Adelaide. At least teams like Carlton are giving it a really good go this year. Maybe it's because they have an ex Weagles player. No, i don't go for Carlton, my team(unlike yours) is in the top three!!
