Re: THE DROUGHT

Very depressing thing,Droughts. 9ers are at 24 years,Knicks over 40.Hell,the Cubs went 107 years from 1909 - 2015.Very depressing for anyone who went close to it.Only 31 for me,which was hard enough,especially in 2003. #-o :-& :roll: Is that the turn when it happened in ‘03? It was sudden if I reca...

Re: ESSENDON Anniversary Reflections 1993

Russ Williams came over in ‘94. The 1st 3(not without a spot of talent)were traded to new Club Fremantle which delivered 1 Mathew Lloyd. You know the rest of that story. :D I think Rusty returned a year after he arrived. Pretty sure he was bundled with the others in order for us to jump the queue t...

Re: THE DROUGHT

Yep,Larry Watson and friends did deliver the Flag in style that year. If memory serves,Rick Davies and Sturt seemed to be all the rage,thanks mainly to Davies kicking 150 that year. Davies had already stamped himself as a Sturt Legend in a previous Grand Final,with a For the Ages Virtusoso performa...

Re: THE DROUGHT

32 if you followed the Red and Blacks in Adelaide’s State League.22 years before that one. Didn’t Lazza Watson play in that one? 1983 I think. Kantilaftas was killing it in the first half. Remember watching the game a week after our disaster on Grand Final day. It was the only bit of cheer I had fo...

Re: ESSENDON Anniversary Reflections 1993

Don’t think I recall the Snozz do that,much as I’d jump all over that with him. Never mind Snozz,do you remember anything outstanding from the Night Grand Final?Did Todd Ridley play in back to back Night Flags,before we generously donated he and Tony Delaney’s services to the NKOTB,Fremantle not lo...

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

Well I can’t,because some c*** of a Perth Supporter hastened my ban,then rubbed it a few weeks back.In case you’re reading this DD,see you at the Footy,Pal! :evil: As for Bruce,I can only applaud him for sticking his neck out for us,given he follows Sydney,doesn’t he?

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

Probably so Bonce,so you wonder why Bruce sticks his neck out and whether him sticking fast to what he is doing,is really worth the bother? But he seems to think there is a case for AWFULL(AFL Commission)to answer and while it seems logical the players and others,should be allowed to move on with t...

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

My understanding of Bruce (taking on board a wide range of opinions), is that he is a type of guy that loves taking on ‘the estsblishment’. He did this with the South African rebel tours, and other sporting bodies - including our saga. He tends to be quite repetitive, and tries to use legal words an...

Re: Striving for Glory & Fame

What I want to see, is for us to kick the sh1t out of all those teams who stood with the AFL and voted against us during the Saga. Freo was the only one who did not. Long and dark memories. We need to start well and to keep improving. I hope we can win our first half a dozen games and frighten the ...

Re: THE DROUGHT

Tell me about it! So is 42.Or 48 before that,when Rock and Roll started and one big drought ended,with the Red and Blacks in the WAFL winning by 2 points. If you could make an Aussie version of America’s Game from that Triumph,when Big Mac referred to a Colossus,as opposed to a Hamburger,I’d love t...

At the risk of bringing up this unsavory episode in EFC history, I have just seen this update on the change.org petition for justice for the essendon 34.

This is a distressing story. Hope he recovers fully. The busted hip is nowhere near as bad as the busted spirit. Hope he gets the help he needs.

Re: Players who you desperately wanted to make it but were just not good enough!

.....and if it was Worsfold that was responsible,what then? Do I sense a bit of animosity or even aggression towards Woosha? If I recall, you were scathing in his appointment and wondered if the club had thought it through. Do you know of any insider information of his time at Eagles? Seems a few i...

This thread has reached 25 pages on Ozfooty and it ain’t me that did it.

I know the main protagonist that sits in a certain place in Bombo Valley.You know who I’m referring to Red? :wink:
25 pages on the Vic election? That’s extreme. Not much to say other than it was an anihilation.

Re: Pokies and the Bombers

I’m on the fence with this one. There is a lot of fantastic community work the club does. They get involved in so many charitable causes, and do a lot of work to help the unfortunate. Then on the other hand, they contribute to an establishment that causes a lot of societal damage. I understand the c...

Thanks for the suggestion Windy,but I’m cool.
