Excellent pickup - looks like Osborne Park Pump and LT - (and its a few hundred metres from Osborne Park SJA Depo) ;)

Spotted a new VE Holden Commodore in the city with Red and Blue light bar - identical to WAPOL standard GDLB - but with the word "Customs" in the middle section - no other markings, and the aerials were on the boot area of the sedan.

There's a blue one and a White one and also an xtrail that have been around for a few years. Previously discussed on here in another section.

In my travels today on William Street, noticed a car with 2 City of Perth Inspectors?? I'm assuming - with a Magenta dual rotating mini-light bar on the roof. I do have a camera pic, and will post soon. Didn't know C.O.P have Magenta flashing lights now.......

Did anyone else notice the irony of him posting that, AFTER a 50 point loss by the dockers? :P

AE, West Coast have had nil wooden spoons, but they do have 3 Premierships under the belt in the 20+ years they have played. WCE is one of the most successful teams in AFL.

To compare Freo, have never had a final [Grand Final] and never took out the minor premier.

Its a stark contrast, but WCE is certainly a better club than the Dockers.

Saying that, I don't support anyone.... but get ticked off when the Dockers start winning all the 'members' that have run away when they loose only to see them run back when they win!
I've closed the door!

You'd be getting ticked off at the Eagles supporters at the moment. If they're not whinging they're hiding.
