A lot of people seem to be getting upset that Fremantle will be wearing their all white strip in Saturday's grand final against the season's top qualifiers Hawthorn.
I understand much has been made of the purple but that's not the AFL's fault.
And in fairness, it did offer the Dockers the choice of jumper over white shorts.
White shorts aren't too hot with anything much. The only chance they have at chic is with a white top. End of story. Trust me, I wear make-up.
But I will write more on the Dockers in my regular column in The West Australian on Thursday.
I just told you that to tell you this: Didn't West Perth look mighty fine wearing their white Stetsons in yesterday's WAFL grand final win over arch rivals East Perth!
Make no mistake the Falcons were the good guys in a game that will be remembered as the last meaningful grand final in WAFL history.
If nothing else the Falcons scored a memorable win for the disenfranchised!
And Simpson Medallist Mark Hutchings, destined to be an East Perth player next season, displayed the same poise and concentration he showed throughout the game to avoid walking off with the wrong group of blokes.
Terrific young man and good luck to him. He is now virtually assured of winning back-to-back premierships at different clubs.
Of course the WA Football Commission has suggested it will safeguard the
integrity of the competition by "constantly monitoring and tweaking".
The commission has moved into doing stand-up!
But who knows, this monitoring and tweaking might catch on?
Perhaps we can look forward to having horses reweighted during the Melbourne Cup.
In the past I've talked about the wonderful record of the West Coast Eagles under the current WAFL arrangement and how I think diversity of coaching is a strength.
Yet with Fremantle a 50-50 chance of winning a premiership on Saturday it seems as a State we must be doing something wrong. Silly me.
No, it is a great idea to put everything at risk, so in the words of John Worsfold "it might help us improve by one per cent".
