Re: Delistings

I often wonder why Delistings have to occur any other time but March.Just before the Pre -season,after Clubs know who’s prepared to Bust their Arse,to succeed! Call me old fashioned,but I guess the timing of the Draft is all arsed up?! Yep,I’m probably very old fashioned. There is a lot about the A...

Re: Essendon Rumour Mill

I heard Geelong were also looking at Parish. Looking at. Pretty sure Parish is still under contract but yeah, has long been linked to a Geelong move...would be a star there. Other clubs are circling our better players like vultures over a dead carcass. If the club doesn't want to rebuild maybe the ...

Re: R18 Messendon vs Smelbourne

Pathetic yet again, didn't turn up and decide to play and by the time we did, it was too late. The players looked like they couldn't give a stuff and played like that too. Like a Sunday afternoon stroll. Stood around made no effort to be competitive where did they learn this way of being? Where is t...

Re: Essendon Rumour Mill

Think... (well really hope) Zerrett stays. The silence surrounding Saad and Daniher is alarmingly. Just another Dudoro move.... probably trying to clear $$ to give Cameron $1.2m a season 🤬🤬 Cameron will not be coming to Essendon Apparently he had signed a long term deal with GWS.

Re: Show Worsfold the door now please!!!!

I beg to differ BD. The use of the term “Essendon people” implies that somehow we as a collective fan base don’t believe hard work is involved. Despite getting flogged for most of the season I don’t believe for one minute think that the team hasn’t been working hard over many years. Players worked ...

Re: John Worsfold. Thank you thread. Serious

Who am I to criticise Worsfold? Nobody. But my first instinct is to view his tenure as a failure. Putting aside the 2016 Season where he seems to earn most accolades, he has failed to develop what was a pretty good list from 2017 onwards, reflected in three consecutive seasons of 12-10 win loss and...

Re: Show Worsfold the door now please!!!!

This was said by Worsfold at the presser; “I understand that Essendon people think that Essendon should be better," Worsfold said. "But they've also got to understand that the competition challenges clubs now to work to the same rules – the same rules of the draft and the salary cap. "No one team h...

Re: Essendon Rumour Mill

There is a rumour that a high profile person walked out on the club today. Can only hope there’s another 20 to follow... We could do worse than to let JoeDan and Sheil walk. Start over fresh - don't waste our future picks. Go to the draft and get some good young players with talent. All under 23. P...

Re: R18 Messendon vs Smelbourne

Its going to be glorious watching both teams trying to lose the game to get pick 5 or whatever it is. Wouldn't it be be really funny if Melbourne beat us by fives goals? A competition who is the worst team. This is a farewell game for a few of the players and if it isn't it dam well should be. If Ru...

Re: R16 vs Geelong

I can hardly blame Worsfold for that pile of steaming faeces. Not in a year where his role has been greatly reduced. But I can blame him for the previous 4 years of ineptitude leaving us with a squad completely out of their depth at AFL level. Essendon for mine has been the single worst performed t...

Re: Fixing Essendon

just imagine a scenario where on the back of Conor retiring, we lose Daniher, Fantasia and Saad. And you know what, would not blame any of them for wanting to pursue success elsewhere as they are unlikely to ever see it at Essendon. Not giving Saad what he wants when you willingly extend the contra...

Re: R16 vs Geelong

There is resistance at the EFC which interferes with everything the club does and has become. Perhaps its left over fear from the saga or perhaps, it has been there for goodness knows how long? All I believe is the club's in trouble not financially but; mentally/emotionally and spirituality it has n...

Re: Fixing Essendon

Saad has asked for four years. I think he is worth it and he is apart from Ridley one of the best players in our backline. If we fail to negotiate fairly with him, I think he might go to Carlton who are rumoured to be chasing him and there's an offer on the table. Sadly, I do not think he will be th...
