Will Frankston sneak a victory in before the end of the year Robbo?

I haven't ruled Frankston out of causing an upset against Port, especially if the Borough decide to spell this players that have had an injury riddled season, and give some of those in the DL a bit of exposure.

Frankston have played patches of good footy as far as I can tell, they have just lacked that consistency over an entire game.

There would have been about 2000 people there yesterday, which is a great mid-winter's crowd. Mind you, when that cold change swept through in the third quarter with the contest decided it drropped to about 500 people pretty damn quick!

Next week is Shane Hockey's 100th game for the club, so let's hope the boys can pull something special out for the great man.

I was one of those 1500 knocking the gate down to get out half way through the 3rd quarter lol Geez it was cold!
As much as Id love to see a win for the Dolphins its pretty hard to see them beating anyone this year. Any semblance of structures and team rules they had during the year have vanished in the last 2 weeks. Right now its just 18 blokes going as hard as they can to get the ball for themselves. At the moment there is no team play, no one prepared to run to the 'right' spot to be the next link in the chain, no outside runners and no overlap. I dont think Ive seen a team give away as many free kicks as Frankston this year. Most of it really stupid undisciplined stuff.If they can cut this out, stick to their structures and add a little finesse to their delivery they might be a chance for a win. Right now its just a mish mash.
The one shining light appears to be Ben Cavarra...to me he seems the only one who understands what is required at this level.

Playing group, coaches and support staff are fine, continuing to strive to try and get a win over the last 3 weeks of the season.

I saw a minor blue in the crowd at half time outside the social rooms. Cops broke it up quickly... carried over perhaps?
