Re: Round 4...vs Collingwood

I can't remember a game that turned as much as that one!! crazy Umpiring is an absolute rort! when was the last time we got a free kick in the goal square late in a game? f****** 2 handed throw and still can't get one... cheating pricks! While we are at it, just about every ruck contest, Grundy sta...

Re: Round 4...vs Collingwood

Have not seen tackling and forward line pressure like that since 2000. Once again the Essendon enigma rises where we drop games to shit teams and rally to beat serious contenders.

Re: f*** off..c***

There is now an investigation under way to determine was it COVID 19 which is banned, or COVID 19.5 which is not yet banned but may be. In, addition, because the team has won their first 2 games, it is obvious that there is something illegal going on at Windy Hill which will involve a 2 year investi...

Re: Round 3...vs Melbourne

Excellent post, Windy. You managed to put the whole sorry tale of the past 20 years into perspective. If that was the downside, I am afraid I cannot find any upside!

It beggars belief that in light of this summary, we could have 100 members let alone 80,000

Re: Votes v Shitney

Our own website and several other scribes did not give Saad a mention. FMD, he was the only player from both teams that looked like he knew what he was doing. Fantastic game.

Zachy for second

McGrath for third

Re: Round 2 June. Swans

This is a classic Essendon conundrum. Just about 50/50 in the betting, a good looking team on paper with key players returning thanks to Covid 19. The game was always going to be in Sydney and the weather looks favourable with showers in the morning and dry in the afternoon, and no Buddy!! (Thank Go...

Re: 2000 Re-Lived

Not a weakness on any line and we batted all the way to the bench. Never likely to see a season like this again. I really thought 1999 was the start of the era which should roll through 5 years at the most However, not to be. The greatest single season as far as I am concerned in VFL/AFL history and...

Strange but True!!

With F'k all left to do, I started watching the 2012 season mainly to see Watto in his prime. Eventually we end up at Skoda stadium against the Giants and who do I see running out on the field for the Giants?? Dylan Shiel Devon Smith Jacob Townsend Andrew Philips ...and of course the wily old coach,...

Re: 2000 Re-Lived

I can recall going to games not only expecting to win, but to give the opposition a good kicking!! In hindsight, Grant probably did us a favour and Sheedy thought so. Made sure we were not sidetracked from the main goal. How about half time at the Granny when you knew we could not lose. Doubt if we ...

So let’s say the season is history and we face 2021. Does JD still become a free agent with his choice to go to Sydney if they will have him???

Re: Do Hibberd and Townsend Represent an New Hard Nut Squad Strategy?

Take a look at Andrew Phillips. He is a solid a a brickshithouse and looks like he could really hurt someone. Will take some pleasure in watching him this year.

Re: Anniversary Reflections - 1965 ESSENDON PREMIERSHIP TEAM

I was at the “G” when Wright dropped Somerville along time with the old her 175,000 that also claimed to be there. My recollections were that the ball had been driven out of the Essendon backline up to the Brunton Ave end when I heard a faint booing which turned into a crescendo. I looked back to ou...

ALEX BROWNE Pick #48 in 2010 draft Guernsey No 24 On list for 5 seasons Played a total of 11 games Kicked a total of 4 goals Probably has the record for the longest ever hamstring injury (approx 2 years). Another success for our medicos. I knew that Alex would get a run. It appears he was finally f...
