Cometti backs club,

Wanneroo Weekender - - Front Page - Justin Bian­chini

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.”
