    Sorry mate have been offline all week! Was in fact there, boys showed a bit in the 2nd with some pretty fluent footy, but all headed down a very steep cliff after that. Lever and Belo's good kicking out of defence among the few positives. Will be good to be back at home next week.

    Always weird watching Essendon vs Coburg. Disappointed Gregory didn't play, Belo was very impressive. Mellington is an absolute campaigner. I love him.

    Yeah between Mello and Tommy Goodwin there's a fair bit of campaigner around the footy when they're in the area!

    Especially against a certain small forward who used to play for us...

    Would be mixed feelings on your end I'm sure, but I loved it!

    Always weird watching these games. Danny made the right decision though, he's having his best year yet.

    Can understand his decision. Not going to get your name in lights as a small forward in a side with no delivery. Boy can play.

    And he was never going to win a flag at Coburg. Dons are a genuine shot if they can get their record against good sides right...

    Super impressed with my mob knocking Richmond off today. Hard fought win & really pleased we didn't run out of legs like we have at times this year.

    At Willy. Wasn't confident but very happy in the end. Have a look at the ladder, Willy were massive underdogs. Superb day for it, felt like a warm spring day for the most part.

    Had it recorded and watched a bit after getting home from Windy Hill, crowd sounded loud and large.

    Tigers fans travelled over the west gate. They outnumbered us I reckon, maybe 55 - 45.

    Williamstown 11.11.77
    Sandringham 0.9.9

    When was the last time a team went goal-less in a VFL/A game?



    (and Sandringham led 0.5.5 to 0.0.0 at 1/4 time)

    I know Northcote was goalless once like 100 year ago, don't know if that was the last instance.

    Big game on Sunday between the Dons and Box Hill. Winner will most likely be top 4 and loser will fall to 6th with Collingwood highly likely to get over the top of Northern Blues by a big margin. Essendon will welcome back Paddy Ambrose to form what will be a very formidable back line for VFL football.

    Ripper game at BHCO today. Essendon slowly shaking their flat track bully tag.

    Blues upset win over the Pies has made things interesting.

    Some big matches this week. None bigger than Essendon hosting Casey at Craigieburn.
    Other highlight matches include:

    Richmond v Box Hill
    Port Melbourne v Sandringham
    Williamstown v Collingwood

    Port will utterly annihilate Sandringham. It will be a bloodbath.

    Collingwood's form has taken a nosedive. Continue like this and they miss the 8.
