Re: ANZAC Game Prematch

We don’t need a band as entertainment on ANZAC Day. It is just a purely bad call by the AFL. We should start a petition to stop it. I also can do without all the woo haa between quarters. Its so forced. Agreed MH...I think they are watching too much American football. I would sign any petition star...

Re: Coleman Tribute

Great tribute Windy, He was a true champion and a true gentleman. He would have kicked 150+ goals in todays footy. :wink: They can`t punch you in the back of the head every time you mark the ball or stomp on you when you go to ground (like they used to in the 'good'? ol days).

Re: R5 Essendon v North Melbourne

Both Crows and Port would snap him up in a heartbeat. But their needs are probably more forward (Jenkins, Ryder s forward) than immediate back. Won't get much better than a 2nd round pick for him though And either of them clubs could have had him back for about three-pence last year and delcined th...

Re: Zac Clarke

And thus our midfielders are always, or usually at a disadvantage from the start.

Maybe we should have one or even two of our mids (depending on who it is and how much influence he is having) roving to the opposition ruckman. :lol: :roll: :-"

Re: Zac Clarke

Did a couple of good things against the Dees but most of the game looked like a duck out of water. However, overall, his height was a bonus and help to nullify Gawn. Worth another chance. Agree! I want the heat on T.Bell. For too long he has just assumed the role of No.1 Ruckman without energy, dom...

What’s wrong with Myers?
A chronic case of uselessness.
A good bloke though and a life-member!
Now if only he could learn to kick it to a forwards advantage instead of just bombing it in ALL the fkng time...no good having a super-boot if you can`t use it to the teams advantage.

Re: R4: Essendon Vs Lions

Guessing Brown will come in for McKernan - apparently Stewart got a groin injury in the VFL game. Although I'm sort of doubting Hurley or Francis or Ambrose would get dropped for Hooker, so maybe Hooker comes in for McKernan? Unless Francis gets rested for his corkie? Don't think Myers played VFL -...

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

Re our coach, one way would be to appoint a co- head coach to sit in the box with him and coach Woosha during the games. That might be a good way to get him to retire. How about Leigh Mathews? :Any other suggestions? :D Des Tuddenham...seen him a couple of years ago...still looks like he could run ...

Please explain

Could some-one please explain to me how we could possibly go from a serious contender (playing good football later in the year last year, and recruiting a gun mid-fielder in the off season) to this inept bunch of fumbling, unskilled, and useless players that are totally devoid of ANY confidence?.

The winless dees must be licking their lips at the prospect of playing the also winless AND quite possibly the worst team in the comp ATM, (please feel free to disagree if you wish, but on current 'form' I`m not sure you can.) On present form they will fkng smash us. :evil: :evil:

Just play the kids from here on out. We can’t possibly win 13 of our next 20. Let’s salvage something to look forward to next year. Anyone over 23 years old is up for trade next season.
