The Purple Impostors

April 21, 2003

Easter Sunday 2003 saw the Fremantle Dockers play the best game of football in their short history.

Sports writers in the southern states have made a big deal of the Freo forward line in this game – and it was impressive.

The glaring truth of this game, however, was that it wasn’t at all like watching a Fremantle match. It was more akin to watching the Fremantle players playing for another team. They played real football yesterday, not “Freo Football”.
