Western Derby: "The Dockers Grand Final"

4 May 2014, 7:30am

It is the morning of the Western Derby. Ross Lyon is polishing the little trophies he bought for his players in anticipation for their most significant victory of the year.

Lyon told The Bell Tower Times:
"Winning the Derby is our top priority. Over the years we have accepted that we are unlikely to win a premiership cup, so the fans and the players consider the Derby our unofficial grand final".
One unemployed Fremantle fan passed up a trial shift at Hungry Jacks to attend todays Derby:
"Strewth. Me and the kids will be eating canned and frozen food for the next fortnight. These tickets cost me a bomb".
 Star midfielder Nat Fyfe told The Bell Tower Times:
"It'd be great for the young blokes at the footy club to get one of Ross' Derby Victory Trophies. The post Derby ceremony usually goes down at Sizzler, it's a lot of fun. On a side note, you should see Sandilands at the salad bar, christ almighty".
The Dockers are heavy favourites to win today's Derby at 1.50 odds. West Coast will need to dig deep if they are going to dash the Docker's dream of another Docker's Derby Grand Final.

All of this begs the question: how many Ross Lyon Derby Trophies does it take to equal 1 premiership cup? Rhetorical question.
