There were only two that were still in their adrenalin rush and forgot the handshake, it would have been an accidental oversight.
The papers were probably just biased in their team losing and wanted to report something the Eagles did wrong to make them look and feel bad.
Return of the charity home
6 September 2006
The West Coast Eagles has teamed up for the second time with Port Bouvard Limited and Beaumonde Homes to build a quality two-story home at the exciting Princeton Private Estate, Stirling.
The beautiful four-bedroom, three-bathroom home, located on a prime block overlooking the landscaped lake, will be auctioned in early 2007, with proceeds from the sale going towards the development of junior football in WA. Such a commitment will benefit more than 100 metropolitan and 120 country-based clubs.
The home is currently under construction and almost at lock-up stage, expected to be completed around Christmas and open to the public in January 2007.
The reporters shouldn't have made a big thing of it in the papers, the Eagles have Hearts of pure Gold and visit the kids in PMH childrens hospital regularly. It was just an accidental oversight that 2 of them forgot to shake hands.
