the final countdown (ii)

24 September, 2013

Today’s Fremantle-themed post takes us back to 2006 and one of the most controversial matches in the club’s history: the Round 5 clash with St Kilda in Launceston, where confusion reigned about the final siren.

237. Hon ANTHONY FELS to the Minister for Agriculture and Food:
Will the minister outline his and the Department of Agriculture’s plan to monitor, manage and contain the potential locust plague threatening the wheatbelt in the spring?

Hon KIM CHANCE replied:
I thank Hon Anthony Fels for the question, and for providing some notice of it. The question that Hon Anthony Fels really wanted to ask, however, was whether, at this afternoon’s hearing of the Australian Football Commission, the Fremantle Dockers were awarded the four points. I know Hon Barbara Scott at least will need to know the answer to this question. The answer is yes; the Dockers were awarded the four points.

Hon Simon O’Brien: It should have been five to allow for the stress and aggravation!

Hon KIM CHANCE: Yes. I knew Hon Anthony Fels would want to know the answer as well.
