    You said there was nothing to suggest we would even play finals. Seems like a weird commen

    Finishing in the top 8 is not a pass mark for Essendon,Essendon are way past that,that's for rebuilding teams like Saints and Brisbane. Top 4 and winning a final should be Essendons goal anything less is a failure.

    Easier to finish higher than 7th when you are only a two team town and have a proper home ground advantage. Clubs like Essendon have to compete and share home grounds with 9 other Victorian clubs which makes finishing high up the ladder a lot harder.

    Nat and Gaff played when they were slaughtered by the Hawks in the 2015 GF.

    I can't believe people still parrot this nonsense. While it's true we have more true home advantage, we also have far more true away disadvantage to balance it out. This means that when we play a similarly ranked team at home, we have a significant advantage to beating them, but also the opposite when playing away. Essendon may not have the same advantage when they play another vic team at home, but they also go into away games against other vic sides with a good chance of winning.

    You can't see the forest for the trees.

    Bit rich coming from a tigers supporter. Up until 2017 you guys were on the exact same cycle of media talking you up every year only to fail.

    Exactly right.
    It's evenly balanced out with more and longer travel.

    Could be no one tipped WC to win the flag with Priddis gone and Nicnat recovering from an acl most media pundits had WC sliding missing the 8.

    The Tigers are coming off a flag, then the minor premiership with a PF exit. With the addition of Lynch making the GF isnt a far fetched suggestion at all.

    The Bombers need a lot to go right for them. They're a smokey, but there are a number of favourites and some other smokies ahead of them. Odds are against them. Smart money says look elsewhere.

    Not convinced bigfooty has the server capacity to handle such a GF match up.

    Maybe Essendon can try and copy/steal Richmond’s rich elaborated in-depth intricate game plan based around the coaching staff’s groundbreaking invention of the tackle
