If you're talking about the 80 odd point loss at Lavington oval in Albury, I was there.I recall one embarrassing shambles of a pre-season game against these campaigners............
Ha! Nah, a few years back at PP. We were a ******* disgrace, pre-season or not............If you're talking about the 80 odd point loss at Lavington oval in Albury, I was there.
A cop pulled me up on a backroad going a little fast on my way home. He saw the Carlton jumper on my young un and I told him where we'd been, he asked me the score. When I said * he swore just a little and told me to watch out for Roos.
That was '95 so just a bad start to a very good footy year.
My bad, they say as you age it's the short term memory that goes first. I've shut out much of the on field stuff for the last few years, only been waiting for the trade week good stuff.Ha! Nah, a few years back at PP. We were a ******* disgrace, pre-season or not............

Seen thatYahoo showing footage of the interpretation of the new man on the mark rule in an Essendon scratch match.
Boy this is gonna be fun.
See this were the umpires need to do their jobs.Seen that
It’s a natural reaction to deviate off the mark if the opposition player with the ball starts moving sideways
I can see what they are trying to do but it’ll be a bloody nightmare early this season...
This game will mean little as a team, more significant for individuals hoping to fit into a team context and sheep’s capacity. Both teams will rest stars early. End will be an anticlimax after 6 quarters. Looking to see if we debut a more attacking style and see if Saad, Williams, Walsh et. al. take on the man on the mark rule.Looking forward to seeing how we play, whether there's a harder physical edge, how the young ones have progressed and whether we can use the speed we have added to the team effectively. Looking at which forwards put in a good game and how players go in new roles. I would like to thing that we are going to be far too good and overpower Essendon at the contest in this one and out run them in free play. There are plenty of fringe players who should be hungry to make a good impression, for many of them this is an audition for round one.
I’m critical of umps, especially ones that over officiate, must be a bloody tough gig sometimes though...See this were the umpires need to do their jobs.
If a player deviates off his mark, they need to call play on and fairly quickly, in which case it allows the man on the mark to also move off the mark. The umpires need to be watching the kicker as well as the man on the mark!!!
Good luck, as they will only be concentrating on the one individual.......
