Re: R18 Essendon v Adelaide

Fantasia is too valuable to use as a decoy. Does this club never learn? Did the same thing with JoeDan and look where he ended up. Raz needs to be rested and now is a good time to do it that's if we want him there and firing at the big end of the season. The same goes for Hooker. Now is NOT time for...

Re: Snelling.

Congratulations on being selected to play in the Seniors. Snelling might just be one of the missing links and help to fill a gaping hole left by Devon Smith's absence. Snelling is also able to go forward and kick a goal. We still have a few players out of the side with injuries and importantly, our ...

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

I think we should consider Jarrod McVeigh as an Assistant Coach.

Apparently he was due to come back through the VFL and hurt his calf again. He would be a great midfield coach. Consider?

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Particularly, when Tippa was copping a belting from at least three Kangaroo players all day. Our players on the improvement march, must stand up for their team mates. I not suggesting they go the bash but they must show a bit of mongrel and let the opposition we won't cop that rubbish. Has to be a c...

Re: R18 Essendon v Adelaide

OUT: M. Hurley, O. Fantasia IN: B. Zerk-Thatcher, W. Snelling Time to give Razz a rest. Whatever is going on, just let him sit it out for a week or two. He has been ‘absent’ for 4 solid weeks now. I’d like both B. Zerk and Snell to get a game this week. Both debut on their home turf so to speak. Al...

Re: Zac Clarke

Zac Clarke definitely needed a few games to get back in synch and blow the cobwebs away. Good game Zac. I was one of the people who criticized him and said he needed to lift his game or get back to the seconds. His game against North was such a pleasant surprise and he put any criticism to rest, he ...

Re: Bomber Thompson

He did record a conviction which is going to affect some things in his life and if he breaches the conditions, he will go to jail. He has to do compulsory rehab which is a good thing. If a person is really wanting to get clean then it can be a welcome opportunity. There is more to rehab than just be...

Re: Clanger Hangar 2019

How many of us have said our skill levels are well below par. Those stats prove it. Improve our hand and foot skills, improve them only 5% and it could put into the eight. However the question has to be do the players practice skills during the week? Apart from fitness, skills should be number 2 on ...

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Its what we do isn't it Ben? Make them earn it make them wait and finally give them a feed when they are starving. No changes this week. If anything I would have dropped Laverde and given Snell a run. What else does this kid have to do to get a game??? If Heppell has to have surgery LTI please, plea...

Heppell might need surgery on this. Put him in and have it done. Don't risk playing him and making a bad situation worse.

Re: Bomber Thompson

I hope Bomber gets any support he now needs to get his life back together. This includes the press getting off his back. We all make mistakes and no one knows what they would do in the similar circumstances. Often we think we know ourselves well enough to say, I would do this or that, let me say fro...

Re: 4th Best Defence - 10th Best Attack

Essendon need to learn play and be without JoeDan. If he comes back at some point it will be terrific and it will be an added bonus. We are still a couple of players short of where we want to be, definitely another ruckman or someone who can ruck, a couple of talls and a midfielder. Although Snell, ...

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Dylan Clarke is already good and will be a very good player for us. For a new kid on the block, who has played a handful of games he is making a name for himself as a tagger. He already has a few scalps on his belt. LEAVE HIM IN and allow him to annoy the crap out of one of the blue and white boys w...

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Our midfielders might have to learn quickly how to rove to Goldstein's taps or simply tackle their blokes to the ground. If we can't beat them to the ball, tackle them and totally muck up their run at the ball. Deny them the ball. If we play like last week, North will flatten us. We need to come rea...

While we have so many players out injured Snelling could play some time as a half forward and time in the midfield. Bring him in.

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Parker was held to half of his usual possessions tally if that doesn't say anything about Clarke's performance as a tagger I don't know what does. I think it was early in the third quarter Parker was moved off him. So why do you think that might have been? Not getting enough of the ball perhaps? Cla...
