Keeping the BIG Clubs Big since foreverEssendon getting Good Friday proves the AFL is biased.
The AFL just used us an Norf as a trial run to see if people would front up for a Good Friday game. Once they saw that people would come they gave us the flick. To make more money from it , they have stuck with Norf for now but won't be long before they are replaced. Another of the anointed BIG clubs will take their placeI still don’t understand why or how we lost the Good Friday match. It was an awful quality game but it was a nail biter at the end and the crowd was over 40k. Just read an article on the Age that said we’d continue to push for a second chance to partiticpate in that game. Can’t see it happening now. It will be Essendon vs North for a couple of seasons and then North will get kicked out for Richmond or Carlton and it will be the same old story once again.
I'm thinking the complete opposite. Brisbane, Freo and GC are trash. Geelong are mediocre. Really only the Pies of any quality and we always match up well against them anyway.Certainty not easy on the double ups.
Geelong, Collingwood, Brisbane, Fremantle and Gold Coast, with Brisbane and Freo tipped to improve.
Completely agree. Essendon have been dealt a draw based on a baseless prediction of improvement by the AFL. I would rarely say this but I agree with Jeff Kennett - I have no idea how they can justify giving the Bombers the draw they did whilst a proven finals team in Hawthorn gets pushed aside. One year teams need to 'earn it', the next the AFL bases it on 'we think they'll do well'.Essendon with far too many prime time slots for my liking.
Yeah I wouldn’t mind more games at the G each year for the Dogs. We do seem to play pretty good when we have played there.More MCG games would have been good. Two is not enough as tigers get 13!
Why are we the only Melbourne club who is still in love with the idea of playing a home and away game at our traditional home ground ? Not saying I don’t want it to happen and it is the wrong thing to do but you never hear Essendon supporters wanting to play at Windy Hill etc.Yeah I wouldn’t mind more games at the G each year for the Dogs. We do seem to play pretty good when we have played there.
The dream for me would be to play one home game per year at try Whitten Oval.
