I hope this is ok to post in this forum. I've already tried posting it in the Old Bigpond Full Match Replays thread and the Footy Videos and Pics Forum without much luck.

I'm looking for full match replays of some old Essendon games. I've been able to find some of the ones I was looking for but still after some more. if anyone knows where to find one or all of them I'd be very grateful!

-Rd 14 2008, Ess vs Freo
-Rd 4 2007, Ess vs StK
-Rd 19 2006, Ess vs Coll
-Rd 16 2005, Ess vs Coll
-Rd 10 2005, Ess vs WB
-Rd 8 2005, Ess vs Freo
-Rd 3 2005, Ess vs Haw

I have quite an extensive collection of Essendon games myself, so if anyone has copies of any of these matches I'd be more than happy to arrange some sort of trade. And I'm interested in many games other than these, but best to start with a small list. If anyone can help, please reply to the thread or send me a PM. Thanks!

Try contacting Channel 7. They have a hefty archive.

Thanks for the suggestion, could be worth a try. Although none of the matches I've listed would have been broadcast on 7 - they would have been on 9, 10 or Foxtel. But they might have some other matches I need. Thanks again!

Ah that’s a good point. What about that name a game service? Is that still around?

Name A Game wound up last year I’m pretty sure.

Should be all digitised and put on the AFL Live subscription. Though I’m sure that’d be a big project (you might know actually!). Might happen one day.
Depends what they are stored on. I knew the guy who ran Name A Game about 5 years ago but he died. He used to come in to my post house and do all of his compiles there. A lot of the games were on 1 inch tape! And so games in the 2000s would be on digital tape. That means a whole lot of dubbing and unless there was a huge demand for it...

Seven, for some crazy reason, taped over a good deal of their late 80s and early 90s games, and so the records of them were pretty much lost forever unless more homespun versions are still kicking around somewhere.

I wasn’t sure if they had discarded or recorded over all of their 80s stuff. It’s a bit ironic that for all of Channel 7’s warnings about illegal recordings that all of the footage on YouTube from that era only survives because people illegally recorded it.

It’s not the full game, I did find this though:



I found plenty of highlights videos of our Round 9 game against the Saints from 1990, but nothing else from the Round 22 Daniher Quaddie game.

I’m looking for full match replays of some old Essendon games and was hoping someone might be able to help. If anyone knows where to find one or all of the following I’d be very grateful!

-Rd 14 2008, Ess vs Freo

-Rd 16 2005, Ess vs Coll
-Rd 10 2005, Ess vs WB
-Rd 8 2005, Ess vs Freo
-Rd 3 2005, Ess vs Haw

I have an extensive collection of Essendon games already, so if anyone has copies of any of these matches I’d be more than happy to arrange some sort of trade. And I’m interested in many pre-2005 games other than these, but best to start with a small list. If anyone can help, please reply to the thread or send me a PM. Thanks!

I've found the Freo game on my list thanks to a legend of a Bombers fan! Can anyone help with the others, particularly the St Kilda and Collingwood games?
