What spin shall be weaved?

After the 187 to 42 point flogging handed out to the hapless Eagles by Geelong tonight at Subiaco Oval...what possible spin shall serial offender Kim Hagdorn put on it? Will they be able to mention Fremantle in a disparaging way....somehow? Maybe something like....

"Eagles loss not as bad as Freo's 9 point loss to St Kilda in Melbourne"

"Worsfold happy to play kids in rebuilding year as Harvey falters"

"Eagles rebuilding process on track as Champion Coach Worsfold plays rookies"

"Eagles still have premiership flags despite embrassing loss to Geelong"

mmmmmmm.........

EDIT
Thanks to Speedy Geoff for pointing out that indeed Hackdorn took the first option.
"It was West Coast's worst ever loss at Subiaco Oval, once considered a fortress for eastern states invaders during the Eagles power years of the 1990s and middle of this decade and was on the back of Fremantle's shocking effort against St Kilda on Friday night."

Tell me Kim, what relation does Freos 9 point loss to the Saints, in Melbourne, have to do with the mauling that West Toast received?
Journalism???

In stark contrast to the measured and objective journalism (mostly) of Mark Duffield.
"In fact, after the carnage the Cats visited on the hapless Eagles last night, the rotting carcass that is the 2008 West Coast team may well have been stuffed into the grave alongside those now dormant ghosts.
It was a display so dominant and clinical that West Coast's parochial fans, known for clapping their own team's points and booing opposition champions, sat in quiet awe as Geelong ran up a 10-goal half-time lead that was never going to be run down or threatened."

Real journalist...take note hackdorn...

"It was West Coast's worst ever loss at Subiaco Oval, once considered a fortress for eastern states invaders during the Eagles power years of the 1990s and middle of this decade and was on the back of Fremantle's shocking effort against St Kilda on Friday night." Well predicted.

I thought Freo's (and geelongs) skills were bad when I watched the Cats get up by a point earlier in the year, but last night the eagles were horrid. The Cats were awesome, but the eagles were very, very bad. I did hear one journo ask 'was it Geelong playing well or Eagles playing bad?' I think 135 points is probably more about the winner than the loser surely?

either way...it had nothing to do with Freo!

One Geelong member at church this morning said she much preferred the Freo game as at least Freo put up a fight!
Did not see the game...but I suppose the weegirls were as bad as Cats were good.

You'll probably be glad you didn't see the game as Walls was commentating and had another go at the Dorkers. I agree he's a loser but I think that's probably all we agree on footy-wise ;)

hagdorn is a second rate hack who reports for a second rate tabloid paper and is lucky to even have that job. even forgetting the pathetic performace of the slime against geelong, how can an 8 point loss in an away game to a team several spots above you on the ladder possibly be considered 'shocking'?? it was definitely disappointing but only a one-eyed pro-slime hack like hagdorn could consider it shocking.

heard someone say - both clubs are helping out the energy crisis - none of them are using a lot on the field.
