Re: MND - Mighty Neale Daniher

Ooops sorry, :oops: my mistake. But with the Daniher progeny that is out there you would think it`s only a matter of time before there is a grandson or two from one or more of them running around in the red n black. :wink:

A champion footballer, AND just a champion human being.

And who knows?, 17/18 years from now there might be a kid called Cooper Daniher out there giving us thrills. 8)

Re: Open letter to players

People need to realise that we are an average bunch of players.... Most (if not all) clubs have varying numbers of 'untrade-able' players on their lists, even the scum with the likes of cripps n walsh. I look at our list and find it hard to see ANY untrade-ables, maybe McGrath, THEN?? So we are stuc...

Re: Where to from here?

Hopefully, the only way from here is up, surely we cannot get 'worse' than we currently are on the field?. What really shits me is that I`m not totally surprised at our current situation, and on-field performances. (Or lack thereof). A lot of people went to a lot of trouble and a lot of work to make...

Re: R10 Essendon v Richmond (DREAM TIME)

Remember the days (I know it’s a f****** long time ago) when we used to be a daring club...a flamboyant club...a forward thinking club? I would suggest that in the 90’s and early 2000’s, we would have taken this opportunity to “unexpectedly” pick Irving Mosquito for Saturday night. He may not be re...

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.

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...

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...
