The Dockers have pulled ahead of their rivals, the 1984 Kangaroos! At this pace, Freo’s on track to have only the second or third worst season by a reigning minor premier in 119 years of AFL/VFL history, not the absolute worst. Way to go!
Freo have caught up to their historical rivals, the 1984 Kangaroos
The Dockers are still 1 win behind the two worst starts by minor premiers in AFL/VFL history
In all of AFL/VFL history, no reigning minor premier had ever lost their first seven games of the season, until the 2016 Dockers wrote their names into the record books.
Is the top eight already set? Maybe, but it usually isn’t after round six.

The Dockers just became the first reigning minor premiers ever to lose their first 6 games.
Can the Dockers avoid setting a record for the worst season by reigning minor premiers?
