New rules and scoring

Fair to say that the rule changes have not positively impacted scoring. Essendon is the only club so far to have scored over 100 points...

Be interesting to see where the AFL goes from here in its pursuit of higher scoring.

Re: R4: Essendon Vs Lions

With the confidence of playing at the Gabba gone I thought the Lions looked rattled yesterday. We shouldn't delude ourselves that they are a top team. They just happened to be better prepared than some at the beginning of the season. I predict they will finish twelfth or worse They'll win more game...

We are a team that looks far better just taking the game on and using our speed of ball movement. I just don’t know why we try to be the possession holding, slow ball moving team to that we see most of the time.
Looks good when it works...

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

The 2000 GF was on Fox footy earlier today....Lloyd, Lucas and Hird up forwards. They obviously aren't in the same class as Zac Clarke and McKernan, but they were handy.

Gordon Ramsay wouldn't even attempt the rebuild that's required.

Board the place up and sell it.

Re: R2 Essendon v St. Kilda

“Perhaps we weren’t playing on instinct (last weekend), so we’re really going to focus on that come Saturday.” David Zakarakis. Well if playing on instinct means we don’t play like spot light rabbits with no skills then we could turn this around. We only started playing well last year once they sim...

Re: Essendon VFL 2018

I haven’t seen a lot of the VFL side playing this year, but what I have seen, Brandon Zerk-Thatcher is a bloody good player. Where position does he play? He was billed as the next Dustin Fletcher at one stage... Hard to really categories positions these days. But he is a tall defender who roams the...

Transformation complete. Jobe like in his style of play. Great game last night. Amazing what happens when you give a guy a bit of time to develop... No doubt he played a good game on Friday.

The best name in football. :lol: I dunno...Anthony McDonald-Tippungwutti is not too shabby Sandy Roberts was calling him M.T.W yesterday. Roberts likes to think that he is such an icon he can create nicknames. He still calls Tippa, Tippingwutti Guy is an absolute flog!! Totally agree. IMO, he destr...
