So Ablett doesn`t want to be known as a sniper??? maybe he should stop elbowing people in the head, that`s a start.

Re: R8 Essendon v Sydney

What truly shits me about the rampke shaking the post thing is (and I`d be willing to bet my balls on this) IF the position was reversed and we were 5 points up and rampke took the mark and Myers had jumped up on and shaken the post, that fkng moronic umpire WOULD DEFINATELY have blown his whistle a...

Our ruck crisis...

News that Sam Draper has done his ACL and needs a reco and Bellchambers is battling an ankle injury has decimated our ruck stocks. https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-05-07/dons-big-man-crisis-as-young-ruck-tears-acl-tbell-doubtful Prolly a good time for Zac Ckarke to stand up and show us what he`s got.

Of all the pathetic dweebs I`ve known of in my lifetime, Whateley AND Barrett would top the list. Poorer physical specimens would be hard to find. (I hope that`s not too personal or 'trolling' or whatever, cause I don`t even know what that is) :lol: purely my opinion. They both believe that they are...

Re: Was waiting for this to be addressed.

PS. The club should demand a meeting with the umpires and Director of Umpiring with a very clear “please explain” on the table Is there actually some-one, ANY-ONE, at the club with the gumption and fortitude to stand up to those cockheads and ask them for a please explain??. I doubt it somehow. :ev...

Re: Daniher v Daniher

In the end though,how do most players rate their careers?With a Flag! What was it Bobby Skelton said about swapping his 3 Brownlows for a Flag,exactly? Yes, but it doesn’t mean he wasn’t a champion player. It just means he was unfortunately stuck in a shit team. Imagine if John Coleman played in th...

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 -...

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?.
