Re: Finals Run Up

we have a decent core of high quality players...but we really lack an elite inside mid, a young kpp forward a line breaking winger....i believe in Draper we have a long term ruck option

Finals Run Up

As I write, if Hawthorn finish off the Eagles we will want Adelaide to beat the Bulldogs or we face a road trip to Perth in Week 1. I would imagine it would be very unlikely that the Eagles would drop 2 consecutive games at their home ground. So, let’s hope the Crows get up in which case we will be ...

Re: R23 Votes v Umpire’s Prostitutes

McGrath anyone? He almost got my 1. Vote, but the dude really needs to take some chill pills. He tried hard, effort was good, but he runs around like a chook with his head cut off and makes some really panicky disposals and decisions. Needs to talk to Pendlebury about composure. Fair comment

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

Given the quality missing, can’t fault the effort. Just lacked composure when it mattered in the final term.

Now, I am not prone to blaming umpires but that was a cun t of a f****** shitbag effort from those lime green steaming turds

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

To win 5 games straight against Top 8 opposition is not goin to happen. Would rather lose this and then win a couple of finals...certainly at least one. Tonight is a training drill.

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

Do we really want to win this dead rubber or are we tanking? its all academic at this stage. no matter who and where we play in the Elim Final...we simply must win. Too many years of heartbreak and embarrassing losses to let this chance slip. If the coaches cant have these guys cherry ripe for the ...

yep so he must be fully fit because based on the other changes, the club is clearly adopting a safety first approach with several other players

Re: Myers retires

Thank David. Well done on passing 100 games. Not the greatest player, roundly bagged (a lot due to us not taking Cyril), but gave it everything and can’t ask more than that. Cyril would have been wasted at Essendon during the years of his career. He would have risen to no greater height than Courtn...

Re: Myers retires

I would say the mediocrity in this case lays at the feet of the selection committee. Blaming the player for being selected and offered contracts is disingenuous. At least Myers had the good grace and humility to remove himself from the senior side.

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

Hooker was a bees dick off playing last week. Rest him this week, that means 3 weeks off before a final. No thanks, plays for mine. Hooker has been struggling most of the second half of the season with some niggles...the rest would do him the world of good. It’s not like he is a midfielder where to...

Re: Tom Jok

It’s amazing, when he goes into the ruck he is 195cm....but on the wing he is a mere 190cm

Now that’s versatility

Re: Myers retires

Has there ever been a player go from most improved to retired in under 12 months? Anyway, a loyal clubman who no doubt tried his best. Forever burdened by his surprisingly high draft selection then played out of position for the next 6 years. I don’t for a minute blame Myers for his underwhelming ca...
