Regional manager of Midwest Times and Redwave Media, Jason McCarthy, has his ideas – which shall remain largely under wraps for now.

The diehard Freo fan said, win, lose or draw on the field, now was the time for fans to go head-to-head to show who was the most passionate and proud.

“We know there are a lot of Eagles fans in the Mid West, but many of them are too shy to say it publicly,” he said.

“So I’m almost certain our messages of support will be swamped by fellow Freo fans.”

The derby feature will be published just days before the big game, which gets under way on Saturday, February 25, at Wonthella Oval.
