    Just to keep it on page 1.
    I wonder if there was an awkward handshake between Goddard and Melksham.

    It must be hard for BJ to adjust to life as a bomber, still waiting on the rape scandal, nude pictures and school girls to come out..

    Transcript of conversation overheard this morning:
    BJ: "So what, are we running again today?"
    Brownlow: "Yeah, its a training camp...""
    BJ: "What, like for real training on a training camp?"
    Brownlow: "Yeah, what did you expect?"
    BJ: "Oh, I thought it was a team bonding trip.. my mistake"
    Brownlow: "We are bonding - #whateverittakes"
    BJ: "I should have asked for more money..."

    With how reluctant the club has been to publish Goddard content on this trip, they must be planning a big unveiling when he gets back in the country.

    I dont believe Ess has ever drafted a Number 1 ND pick.

    Can anyone confirm if Goddard is EFC's first No 1 draft pick??

    They had a bit of a stand off during a game in 2011.

    Yeah, first during the NAB Cup, then again during the season.

    Both times, Melksham basically shit stirred him, Goddard lost his shit, and Melksham ROFL'd.

    Pretty sure Goddard feigned a head butt, too.

    Haha, I remember that, then one of Goddard or Montagna said "Don't get too excited it's just the pre-season" when we beat them. You could hear it over the coverage after the game.

    in all seriousness though I think you'll find that on field animosity between players is just that, and is left on the field.
    Cant wait to see a picture of BJ in full Essendon garb though

    Melksham looks a little beefier across the shoulders, maybe it's just the pic.

    Starts at around 6:05, Montagna really couldn't let it go.. Sounds a bit offended in the end. A draw must have been a sensitive issue for the Saints at the time.

    You've gotta admit, it was pretty embarrassing how we went about it after drawing an opening preseason game.
