Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Very happy overall. I thought tbell really tried hard, saad played a blinder - I just love watching him take the game on. His efforts in the 3rd quarter to intercept and steal a footy, feign twice then bang it home from near 50 was goal of the year for me. Genuine effort tonight, got tired in the en...

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

Very lucky Carlton were that bad. As bad I’ve seen any team in a long while.
Big positive is we won all 4 quarters.
We could have absolutely smashed them but we’ll take a win anyway we can. Hopefully the confidence our young brigade need to establish themselves.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

Parish has shown of late - how to play wet weather football. I’d like to see a hard uncompromising work rate keep pushing the ball forward at all costs if in the wet. Basic bloody football. As for Mozzie being selected as emergency- that’s just insulting looking back at why he wasn’t selected last w...

Re: Mid Season Draft

I’d prefer we don’t go for the quick fix mid season draft. We have juniors on our list that have had multiple seasons without much of a look in. Let’s see how they go, otherwise we’re just throwing draft picks away by using them on players we have no intention of selecting.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

I enjoyed Tbell’s effort against the tigers. It was a much improved game from him. His goal came at a time when we were missing them from everywhere. Understand he’s not elite but he’s our best uninjured option right now. We have to back him in

Re: R9 Essendon v Fremantle

My 2 cents: I liked Colyer and wish him all the best. He wasn’t perfect but he had a crack and made some clutch plays to be counted on during some lean times. I hope he has a super game this week

Re: R9 Essendon v Fremantle

Does it also mean players can climb goalposts this week as long as they don’t touch the ball? It has no influence right?

We can also send a player out on the ground in Geelong #29 jumper and elbow a player in the head as long as it’s insufficient force to concuss them?

Re: R9 Essendon v Fremantle

Both Fyfe & Ablett were deemed insufficient force.
Both were complete accidents which had no effect on the results. The umpires used common sense in telling both players “please don’t do that again today” which was sufficient for Gil.

Re: R7 Essendon v Geelong

Absolute disgrace that Ablett walks away from a flying elbow to the head to Shiel with a mere $2000 fine. He got off due to good behaviour never having been suspended. Well that's because he keeps getting off due to good behaviour for never having been suspended for the last time he got off due to g...

Re: R7 Essendon v Geelong

Umpiring dreadful again. Ablett will get off on a flying elbow to the head because he’s Ablett. We have had a goal reversed due to a cats player slipping over. And it’s 6-0 to the cattery. Nonsense

Re: Was waiting for this to be addressed.

The umpiring is not an issue because the people running the AFL are corrupt pricks and the scoreboard outcome was intended. The only good that can come of this, is that the whole football world has seen this corruption in prime time. Something has to be done. The media are just as bad in my book. Co...

Re: R6 Essendon v Collingwood (ANZAC Day)

As s’dreams above. Clarke has the ability to combat our deficiency to rely on TBell all game. I like his endeavour and can see him have a crack. Mids and backs need to be supreme.
Big 4 quarter effort. They will punish us in turnovers

Re: Is Essendon Better Suited to 666 than Other Teams?

The big difference I’ve noticed over recent weeks is early scoreboard pressure. Kick straight and our confidence sours. First 2 weeks were deplorable first quarter goal conversion.

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

The Effort was there. Exciting 2nd half to witness. 20 goals is enormous. Kick goals early. Gather momentum. Thank your mother for the rabbits.

Thank you, good evening and goodnight.
