Re: Bomber Thompson

**** BUMP **** Sad. Today he admitted in court that he is a serious drug addict. Pity he didn't choose his housemates with more care. From the Age Erin Pearson June 26, 2019 — 12.35pm Fallen AFL great Mark 'Bomber' Thompson has admitted he was an ice user and spent 12 hours a day trading cryptocurr...

Re: R15 Essendon v GWS

Off topic, but related. Which idiot scheduled last week's VFL match for Sunday so the majority of eligible players only have a 4 day turnaround if selected BTW - Baguley, Myers and Gleeson were the only ones who played "limited time" for a potential seniors recall. Given the continuing injury to St...

Re: Who's on modified training?

Update:

Stringer - no chance this week, and sounds unlikely for next week as well.
Guelfi - maybe, but sounds unlikely.
Fantasia - not even a mention from the Club. FFS!
Stewart - apparently a case of O.P. - who knows when he'll be back.
edit: - forgot BZT - not a hammy strain, just a knock - Test.

Is Ryder a chance to return back to where it all started??

I certainly hope so!
Ken Hinkley says no.

In other ruck "news", rumour is that St.Kilda are offering $1.4M over 3 years to Draper.

Mozzie did play.
Apparently, even though Francis kicked 4, many said he wasn't all that impressive.

Re: Snelling.

Good game by Snelling this weekend, but won't get an AFL game V GWS because it would be a 4 day break.

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

Plan A or Plan B?? Honestly I'm over people saying we have no Plan B. To those people.....do you seriously think that the Club tells the players to just run and be fast and kill the opposition with speed, and oh well, if that doesn't work we don't know what to do???? Believe it or not, the Plan A is...

Bellchambers, Redman and Clarke (?) all got fines and are free to be selected (Benny wouldn't have one of these playing).
What did Clarke do??
Apparently pushed an Eagle player into an umpire....or something like that. I'm trying to erase all memory of that game :)

Re: Fantasia

From the EFC Website: Lively forward Orazio Fantasia had a very quiet night, recording six disposals and one tackle and forced to the wing later in the match. Worsfold revealed there may have been a reason behind his low numbers, saying Fantasia had been playing under duress. "It's some soreness th...

Re: West Coast v Essendon

Typical dumb shit show that we come to expect from our club. Can’t believe (maybe I should) the stupid decision making process we exert. When does one wake the f*** up to the fact you’re playing into the hands of a serial interceptor in McGovern? Change it up and start kicking the ball into the for...

Re: Stephenson 10 week ban

Private: Damn, I got caught. He didn't "get caught" though - he dobbed himself in. Probably would never have been detected otherwise. He dobbed himself in after he let slip a teammate had cost him a multi. :oops: He was encouraged to "come clean". If he had come forward despite "never have been det...

Re: 4th Best Defence - 10th Best Attack

Where will goals come from or is the improving midfield and half back rebound going to be enough? Smack needs some tall help, be that Brown or Stewart. Laverde has been ok, but would've been very good with straight kicking. We also seem to kick it to Walla too much. Unless it's a dart to a clear le...

Up to Worsfold,the coaching staff and the players to determine how much better this season can be. I’m not terribly optimistic,but ever hopefull.Watch this space! Reckon it's ...

Re: VFL Essendon 2019

Must have been a lot of scoring after 3/4 Time.Did the heavens open up and swamp Melbourne? Think Ben might have said 3/4 Time when he meant final scores. More info about the scores etc available here - http://websites.sportstg.com/round_info.cgi?a=MATCH&fixture=125262346&c=1-118-0-518179-0&pool=1

Stringer cleared, but sore.
That's big!!!
That's f***ng terrific!! Besides his 2 goals last night, he played a very important part in our win and I was prepared to write us off over in the West before :D :D :D
Still unlikely to play next week though, apparently.

How'd he go today?
22 disposals and a goal. I didn’t see the game, just followed the commentary.
Add 6 or 7 tackles to that as well.
