Talk about everything Essendon. Past, Present and Future if it's about the Bombers this is the place to be.

You’d think GWS would use the escape hatch to take advantage of their Gift Draw in the last round.But given how ordinary they were in the 2nd Half and how strange this year has been,maybe Gold Coast can have a moment of joy in a lousy season.

We were thumped in almost every statistical category against the Dockers. We are still not winning the contested ball or the clearances. How Fremantle were dispatched so easily is a mystery. I would suggest that they allowed us to counter attack too easily and Saad, McKenna and Hurley were instrumental in providing very effective drive from defence. The problem is Fremantle did nothing to protect the central corridor and pretty much gifted us multiple opportunities to switch play and centre the ball.

Strong, disciplined teams won’t allow us to do that. We are still falling we’ll behind in Marks, Tackles, Stoppages and Contested possession inside our forward 50. Without goals from the D50, we do not really have an obvious path to goal.
Agree with all that.
To add to your comments......Freo kept giving us the ball back, with turnovers, mostly across their half-forward line. And that is why we were given the corridor so much - because it's too hard to recover a defensive position from that part of the ground on a turnover.

Doggies well ahead of the crows x 39 pts just before half time...and looking the goods.

We'd be 8th, playing 5th, tiggers or weagles.

Not yet,it ain’t.

Whilst Richmond should prevail,Brisbane are giving it a shake.

14 points the difference a minute or so ago.

They'll play again in 2 weeks in Brisbane.
I went today. Lachie Neale is a bit of an inside beast.

More than its worth to see us get our arses handed to us by last years premiers on thier home deck.

Win and I’ll be stoked and shocked by the result. Be competitive and push them, I will be dissappined to lose, but happy
Play like the Suns (which they have shown they can do) I will be pissed and calling for Woosha’s head on a plate...

Congratulations to our All Australian squad nominees.... :oops:

West Coast on the other hand were robbed.


Sarcasm aside, god help us with the umpiring come the Elimination Final. I get a strange feeling there’s not a lotta love for the Dons down at AFL house.

Dusty is one scary, ugly mutt coming at you at speed. Got more tatts than a Maori chief. I insist that we recruit the ugliest looking c**ts around in this years draft. We deperately need a few mongrels among the bottle blonde brigade that keeps growing game by game. A Collingwood supporter or two wouldn't hurt :D :D :D
