Re: R1 ESSENDON v Adelaide

We should win based on their outs. We do have some but I feel theirs are of greater loss to their team make up. This is a perfect time to get them and a valuable 4 points so early in the season as we don't play them again this regular season. But like Royza it's how we perform throughout the year an...

I fly in on Good Friday evening. Not sure if worth changing flight at this stage.

Re: Stringer

Definitely can see he's lost a bit of weight. Time will tell on this one but I like to take the optimistic approach that he'll be able to get back to his best footy with a fresh start.

When you copy and paste something then forget to change it over. That's how. *Fixed*

Re: Howlett and Bird

Howlett has signed on with the Bombers VFL team for next year. Has started making noises about mentoring young players. This will at least keep JP happy, :D I believe that was Hocking. Latest Mail on Ben,was that he was headed back to Peel,based on his friendship with their Ex President and current...

How many chances can McKernan have? Can tear a game a part at VFL level and shows glimpses at AFL level but doesn't look like he cares enough.
Agree. But definitely better than Howlett.

Re: Round 1 - 2018

Really happy with the fixture and as mentioned above two great interstate trips to take advantage of the public holidays. Don't mind the prime time games on Friday and Saturday nights. Back where we belong.

Re: Essendon v Sydney - Elimination Final

Wasn't overly excited going into the game knowing that it'd be a miracle to win. Joe's mark was awesome and the first term we played pretty well but should have had three goals ourselves by quarter time. That second quarter was disgraceful. Just killed the contest quickly and was a massive kick in t...

Re: Essendon v Sydney - Elimination Final

I'm a sucker for punishment. I have seen us play Sydney three times in Sydney. Round 2 2011 - Umpire gave Jude Bolton a dubious free to win them the game at ANZ. Went in 2014 in the wet we lost by 8 goals in an average game. Went in 2015 Round 1 to ANZ and watch us cough up a 8 goal lead in the last...

Re: Bumbling Bombers V Purple Craze

Really poor inclusions. Jobe is obvious and warranted, Langford was okay in VFL apparently, Smack - why? , Trav - did he even play VFL last week? Heath Hocking - a farewell game if he plays. You'd think Jobe for Bird and Trav for Green. There's so much youth that I hope get a go next year as these r...

Re: Benevolent Bombers v Gold Coast Suns of Bitches

Really happy with the changes. David Myers still lucky in my opinion. With the retirements starting to come and the expected delistings / retirements of Watson, Kelly, Stanton, Hocking, Smack, Morgan I'm really looking forward to seeing more fresh faces in the team next year. Hurley has been off for...

Re: Benevolent Bombers v Scum

We have an average list who on thier day are scintillating and exciting to watch, but the inconsistencies and deficiencies are glaring and we become the worst t...

Re: Trav Colyer

Agree. Has had no impact this year and would normally be the one to kick the winning goals but that's Tippa now. I don't know whether he's being played in his best position with Worsfold. Maybe he is and he just hasn't found form. But regardless he deserves a run in the twos along with one or two ot...

Positives: - 4 points - Tippa only one who gave a shit at the end - Still Joe - Heppell Negatives: - Endless - Always play a good first quarter then struggle after that - Same players who should be dropped playing another poor game - No Plan B from the coach - Inaccurate goal kicking - Lack of press...
