    TLM Countdown - Prelim Final, 2013, And the winner is...

    By chammond.

    SYDNEY 11.8 (74) FREMANTLE 14.15 (99)

    Fremantle produced an impressive display of high-pressure football to defeat Sydney by 25 points in front of 43,000 fans at Paterson Stadium. The Swans had limped into this Preliminary Final with a team depleted by injuries, and the Dockers never gave them a chance to settle, tackling and harassing the hapless visitors, and building a match-winning 42 point lead by three-quarter time.

    Fremantle dominated the opening term but couldn?t capitalise, poor kicking yielding only 2.9 from a quarter that mostly played out in the Swans defensive third. Miraculously, the Swans stayed in touch courtesy of quality goals against the play from Lewis Jetta and Harry Cunningham.

    Sydney couldn?t mount a single attack for the first 27 minutes of the second term as the Dockers attacked relentlessly, and the Swans half-time score of 2.2 set new record lows.

    The second half was more even, with Sydney gradually breaking the shackles, but the horse had well and truly bolted. The consolations for the Swans were that Jude Bolton kicked a goal in his 325th and last match, and Gary Rohan showed sparkling form when subbed on.

    A sad ending to a promising season ruined by injuries, with Goodes, Tippett, LRT, Mitchell, Johnson, Shaw and Reid all watching from the stands. Still, there was definitely a silver lining with a series of promising debuts that augur well for the future.

    GOALS: Rohan 2, Cunningham 2, Jetta, Parker, Bolton, McGlynn, Pyke, Hannebery, McVeigh
    Bob Skilton medal: Jarrad McVeigh 30, Ben McGlynn 26, Luke Parker 25

    Congratulations on a tremendous season.

    Well done to Jack, Kennedy and Hannebery who all polled well though the year.
    Also well done to Big Mike Pyke for coming in 5th. Not bad for the worst footballer ever (Thanks BT).
    Malceski was the best defender.
    Rampe the best rookie.
    And big Tippett polled well for only 1/2 a season.

    Lance should bring in more than 24 votes next year, especially considering what we're paying him.

    Maybe not 5-6 years ago, but it's a credit to him how much he has improved as a player and a leader. Some players thrive on the leadership roles, and he is one of them. He was brilliant this year.

    Interesting where Everitt is on that list.
    Also Grundy
    Looks like Bolton called time at the right time.

    No surprises with Rampe and Parker...

    Macca won!!!

    Well deserved.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Well done Cap'n Macca.

    He should have won the AFL midfielders award too, what's it called?
