Re: The Baby Powder Twins

They were awesome players. We probably took them for granted. We have nothing like them on the list now! Throw in Wallis, Hardwick, Longy, Hird, Lloyd, Moorcroft....that team was as tough as nails. I hardly remember any of that bunch having a bad day. Could watch the replays over and over (living i...

Re: Those Shown the Door....

Brown stood up on several critical occasions and we were glad he was there. But when opposition teams woke up to him, most of us could see he had no future. When he was touted as our best scoring hope on one or two occasions, it sent shivers through me and although he was a hard working, honest cont...

Re: The Five Things that Need to Happen if We are to be Relevant Again

Something has to give if this football club is to make the next step and again become relevant and a serious finals contender. If these things don’t happen then it’s making up numbers time again in 2020. Please feel free to add your thoughts and opinions 1. The Obvious Avenue - Fit and firing Danih...

Re: The Five Things that Need to Happen if We are to be Relevant Again

Dunno where to begin. It’s probably easier just to point to some horrendously consistent flaws... 1. Pre-season is always an abomination at our club. It is just absolutely disgraceful how we hit pre-season matches in such shitfull condition, and executing disgusting disposal. All this with the supp...

Re: Those Shown the Door....

As someone said to me today - it seems that Woosha may have rated him somewhat but Ruttie doesn't. Myself, I thought another year on a rookie list would not have been an issue given rookies are generally long term or risky speculations that rarely come off ... but I can only conclude that there are...

Re: Those Shown the Door....

Feel for Jok. He had high hopes and tried his arse off but I always felt he was just never going to get there. IMHO something wrong with the way he used his body, no matter how hard he tried. Sad too that his family was so proudly comitted to him and Essendon. Maybe he'll go to the NBL. Arrividerci ...

Re: Bonar

Bit disappointed we didn't get Bonar. Was always going to go cheap in terms of trade deals, but I'm guessing it was his salary that was the expensive part that made us rule him out. Gna watch him carefully throughout the year (if he gets a run) and see exactly what we missed for $400,000 or whateve...

All I can say is, unless somebody can pull some shock move out of their arse, then waiting to see if the future of season 2020 hangs on the shoulders of a petulant overgrown kid, it means "ITS GONNA BE A LONG, LONELY SUMMER! "

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

Essendon list manager Adrian Dodoro is refusing to budge on a trade for Joe Daniher. Speaking at PWC’s breakfast with Connors Sport, Dodoro explained the club wanted to hold the key forward to his contract in order to help the club consolidate as they search for their first finals win since 2004. “...

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

I'm curious - what does our Forward Line look like without JD there ? Haven`t you been watching the last two seaons? :roll: Pretty much what I was getting at. The only thing we have been holding onto was that JD would be back in there at some stage. I’d rather off load half the list and start again...

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

As far as I'm concerned let the game begin. And good luck to the Swans getting both his body and his head in the same place at once. We never could and I was f***** dreading another year of uncertainty and disappointment like the last two. Now let's work our asses off to make the best possible deal ...
