Re: R20 ESSENDON v Sydney Swamps

Free kick, Sydney!

Lost count how many times I heard that in the 2nd half. Laughable. Sorry, PREDICTABLE!

It’s not enough they get “hometown” decision, but they also get “homesickness” decisions. f****** rort.

Almost guaranteed.

Re: R20 ESSENDON v Sydney Swamps

Tomights games cancelled apparently. QLD lockdown from 4pm tofay . All pro sport off. Hahaha, lol :lol: Why did they schedule the f***'n game there in the first place? Dickheads. Hope it derails AFL’s love child’s finals prep. Jam it up your arse. If they had brains, they’d quickly schedule the gam...

Re: Cullamarine 2021

Fox reporting that Hooker will be offered a 1 year extension He’s 33 this October. His body has been showing signs of decay. I can’t see why they would. In fact, I can’t see why he’d want to go on. He must feel within himself that he can’t possibly put in a full AFL season anymore. He may contribut...

Re: R20 ESSENDON v Sydney Swamps

Keen to see how Clarke goes. There was a string of games he played not so long ago, when he had a tagging role to great effect. Kept Cripps to 10 possies. Hope he makes it. No mention of Buddie's great escape, or is the concensus that it was fully expected and therefore not worthy of comment. At le...

Are we keeping Waterman?
Yeah, I'm 50/50 with Cutler.

Waterman should be given some time to prove himself. There's a lot to work with so I'm happy for him to stay on a bit longer.

Cullamarine 2021

Granted there’s a few weeks to go until the end of the season. But, we’re not going to make finals, and if we did, we’ll cop our usual Elimination Execution. So, let’s ponder who is at the end of the road at Tullamarine... Cale Hooker . Great servant of our club. Has been a terrific player during a ...

Re: Hooks & Tips

I wonder how important it is to have 3 talls down there for Hooker to flourish. 2MP & Jones take other talls and make it more difficult to double up on Hooker. 2MP seems to be scoring a little lately and maybe is the better target? Walla on the other hand...does he look overweight?? Is fitness ...

Hooks & Tips

Have been shitful since the bye halfway through the season.

Hooker last 6 games = 4 goals

Tippa last 7 games = 5 goals @ 7.9 disposals

That’s not worthy of being picked.

Hooker’s first 12 games yielded 29 goals. Tippa had 27 goals after 11 games @ 12.3 disposals

Re: R19 ESSENDON v BWS Clients

I 100% get the disappointment. But young developing side has a down moment. Not exactly a shock. How many of us predicted we'd even have this chance? It's annoying but take a step back, this year was never about playing finals. Finals was the cherry, the sundae is the youth showing us plenty, which...

Re: A Permanent Counter

Finals winning drought...

Between 1968 Preliminary Final win to 1983 Elimination Final win = 334 matches (6 losing finals in between)

Between 2004 Elimination Final win to [f*** knows when] = 371 matches, and counting...(6 losing finals so far)
