The Yiooken Award will be awarded to the player judged best on ground in the match on Saturday evening.

The Long Walk

In 2022, Essendon Football Club will celebrate 18 years of The Long Walk. A charity inspired by Essendon champion Michael Long’s inspirational walk to Canberra, The Long Walk aims to get the lives of Indigenous people back on the national agenda.

The Bombers have copped one of the biggest pastings from outside you'll ever see. Everyone has gone after them this week.

I have no idea how much of an impact it will have but it will no doubt create some sort of emotional and fiery response from them in such a big game.

I'm nervous, but quietly confident. As long as we replace a few outs smartly with the right replacements, think we should win.

Reckon it'll be closer than most predictions though. Tigers by 11.

I expect it to be the most bruise-free footy of the year considering that these sides are the bottom two for tackles laid. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but that’s just what I expect

I dont even care anymore

The club is a *****g s**t hole that should be closed at least that way i wont have to care anymore
I had those feels circa 2016. Born in 1980, I’d seen Richmond make the finals twice when I was aged 32 in 2012. Then I watched them improve but still manage to lose finals from 5th to a 9th placed Carlton and to a lower ranked North, as well as getting flogged in a final by Port after winning the toss and kicking into the wind. Then they went backwards and fell out of the 8th in 2016. So at age 36 I’d seen Richmond win 2 finals in my life. Then they had a pretty good run and it was all the sweeter.

Chin up mate. Night is darkest before the dawn breaks etc etc

Essendon is the sort of team that could turn it around this week. They have been beaten up in the media for their lack of defensive pressure, particularly from their mids, and tackling across the ground. What better mach to prove the football world wrong.

Rutten will make this game simple for his team - tackle, pressure and turn the ball over. Forget the offensive focus. Forget the desperation to score. Pressure will give you that.

There is a huge spot light on a lot of well credentialed players and this is the game to prove the neigh-sayers wrong.

I feel this game will be a lot closer than many believe -

Tigers by 70

The media hype around Essendon is incredible/delusional. Seven days ago the media was carrying on like they'd won the grand final. After one good quarter against Hawthorn. This week they're back to shitting on them.

Richmond by 60+.
Rutten probably couldn't afford to get towelled by 60+. Regardless of the result, the margin will be close. Even if they don't win, Rutten will have a focus on hardness, tackling, and defensive intent. It's a marquee game on primetime, he simply cannot have them get buried again.

Expect it to be within a few goals either way.

Didn’t Lloyd and Slobbo slam them 2 weeks ago before the Hawks game? Trying the same well again

Expecting the bombers to come out all fired up and breathing fire , Most likely going in hard and tackling like mad men
Line in the sand stuff here and alot of reputations on the line with what they produce this week.

Tigers Beware

  • The Parker-Dusty trade rumour is gaining momentum
  • Parker's image is on the speed balls at the Don's gym
  • The Dons' heavy punching and tackle bags are all wearing a Richmond 26
  • Following an invite from the Bombers LG a bruised and stitched up Parker (after the Blood Bath Mk2 v the Blues the night before) will address the Bombers as part of their pre game preparation on Saturday arvo.

(at least some of the above may not be true)
