Cometti backs club,
DENNIS Cometti showed his heart beats true for the red and the blue when he turned up at Joondalup Arena to support the financially troubled West Perth.
The Seven broadcaster, who retired from AFL commentating alongside Bruce McAvaney after the 2016 season, went to Joondalup after covering the East Perth-Perth game last Saturday to join supporters celebrating the Falcons’ 31point win over Peel.
The former West Perth player and coach had witnessed a good game at Leederville Oval but “was anxious to get to this one”.
“I thought I should come up here simply because I wanted to be around the people who, I think, feel the problem the most – the members and supporters,” he told the Weekender.
He said West Perth’s victory over Peel pointed to the spirit at the club.
“People talk about spirit all the time,” the former No. 1 ticketholder said.
“But I think West Perth has it in spades. And I’m counting on that to get us through what is a difficult but certainly not an irrevocable situation.”
