Re: When is Enough, Enough?

The whole thing tonight was just SO predictable.

Same old, same old.

15 years without a finals win is an absolute embarrassment.

Re: 2019 Elimination Final: Essendon v West Coast

Lots of dumb mistakes. You can't possibly make that many errors and expect to win a game, especially a final.

The other thing is a lack of key forward. Stringer, Brown, McKernan all have barely touched it.

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

Some good signs tonight. McKernan and Tippa really good. Last ten minutes we played really poorly, turning it over many times. Maybe we ran out of legs.

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

I think it was Francis but anyway you're right. Some putrid decisions that quarter really cost us.

Re: Finals Not A Given

If we play like we played today, then we will lose all three for sure.

Re: Rnd 19..vs Gold Coast Suns

Considering every other team that has played them recently has had a percentage booster...

This is a disgrace.

Re: Rnd 19..vs Gold Coast Suns

Early signs definitely don't look good. Getting slaughtered in the ruck and very ineffective in attack.

Re: Skills???

I think it's part of the overall deterioration of our once great game. Today's players are arguably better at tackling and running than the 1980s, but hopeless at leading and kicking to position, which used to be a key part of Australian football. I remember the great full forwards Hudson McKenna et...

Re: R16. Essendon V Swans

We really need to lift. This is a season defining moment. If we lose today, we have absolutely no hope of making the finals. If we lose IN MELBOURNE to the Swans, we cannot be taken seriously as a team.

Re: R15 Essendon v GWS

Hooker sensational in that last quarter. We stole it from them as they missed lots of easy shots.

Re: R15 Essendon v GWS

So far, a really strange mixture of brilliance and stupidity. One minute we look like killers and then next minute we make some basic mistake that even ten year olds should not make. Hard to say which way it will go in the second half.

Absolute embarrassment in the end. If they had kicked straight, it could have been 80 points or more.

The wheels absolutely fell off that quarter. Lucky not to be far further behind. Not even sure why exactly.

Reasonable start so far, but let them in for some easy ones. How did Hurley not touch that one on the line?!

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Pretty ordinary last ten minutes... almost let them steal it from us.. but up to then a lot of good signs. McKenna and Saad both great off the backline. Parish really taking that next step.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

We fell back into too much cutesy pie stuff that quarter, which often came unstuck. Just lucky Carlton are even worse than us and can't kick straight.
