TimN's View on the Fremantle Dockers
The Fremantle Dockers had their first season in the AFL in 1995. Since
that time, the astounding skills of their players have made them a
force to be reckoned with, as their record of finishing 13th, 13th,
12th, 15th, 15th, 12th, 16th, 13th, 5th and 9th clearly shows. Only 2003's effort to finish 5th has really bucked the trend. Fremantle are a great club.
Where else would Shane Parker get a game, let alone become the club record holder for most games played with the club?
2003 was a big year for Freo, with the Dockers managing to have their first ever taste of finals football.
The list below is a summary of the fixtures and results
for the Fremantle Dockers for the year 2005. More in-depth reviews of
some of the games are also available. I also have review for some
matches from 1997,
2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.

managed by the AFL, so don't hold it against the Dockers if it doesn't
work. My experience so far is that it works much better when viewed
using Internet Explorer.
