    Which clubs have the greatest media presence and influence?

    The Joe Daniher trade saga has me thinking about which clubs tend to have the greatest media presence - and how that can be used to shape opinions and influence outcomes. Essendon seems to have a fair contingent of such types, including past players and journalists that go in to bat for the...

    The Decade That Was (2010-2019)

    Well time certainly flies. It feels like just yesterday the final siren sounded to the drawn grand final between the Pies and Saints and the ensuing madness that occurred. It's hard to believe that was nearly 10 years ago and now the final siren to the decade is nearly upon us - Perhaps in...

    Most insular club in the league

    Just a random Thursday thought bubble really. Some clubs in the AFL are particularly open and approachable in their philosophy and dealings. For example, Hawthorn has found sustained success from being very open to trading and getting deals done. North Melbourne are very open with the media...

    Games you replay over and over

    In light of the most shocking/mysterious game threads, it got me wondering what specific games do you tend to replay or watch the highlights regularly? It might be due a thrilling finish, a particular moment, high scores, a memorable team performance or the dominance of an individual player in...

    Sell your Club

    One thing you love, and hate about your club

    Even though this season is turning out to be an utter train wreck, Saturday’s win made me remember exactly why I love the club I support. You can always count on the Bombers to pick themselves up off the canvas and win when the backs are against the wall. Our win against the cats is a classic...

    Round 1 Memories

    Round 1 isn't too far away now which is pretty exciting, shaping up to be a highly intriguing season. Personally Round 1 is always my favourite round of the season, there's always big crowds, a few unpredictable results, the chance to see new recruits or coaches for the first time and of course...

    No Longer the Comeback Kings?

    The Essendon sides I remember were renowned for never giving up and resulted in some famous comebacks such as the 93 prelim and of course the 69 pointer against the Roos. However it seems this current side have lost that ability Our largest comebacks this year were against: RD 18 V North...

    Friday Night Ladders

    For no other reason than it being uni holidays and having a little too much time on my hands I decided to compile lists of which teams have featured in the most Friday night matches since the beginning of the 2007 season. Of course Friday night matches are regarded as the jewel in the crown of...

    Which Team Are You Keeping An Eye On?

    Every year, the fortunes and plight of one team is always of great interest to me. Apart from watching and following my own team there is always one other team that for a number of reasons I enjoy keeping an eye on (Perhaps more so this year considering a 10 goal loss is probably a good result...

    Wow, well done. What a win. The pies really dug deep tonight and gave everything, definatley a sign of a great team and a brilliant spectacle for us 'neutral observers'. If the Pies win the Grand Final next week then we have the awesome situation of Carlton, Collingwood and Essendon all...

    Well done. Ahead of the Western Bulldogs by 50 points and thought...wait, this is getting boring -time to spice things up. John Worsfold: "Guys, I am bored. Why don't we mess with Carlton?" Darren Glass: "That would be more fun than this shit." Dean Cox: "How do you suppose we do that."...
