    Ess: ( 1 to 5) 114, ( 6 to 10) 71, ( 11 to 15) 43, = Total 228.
    Freo: ( 1 to 5) 99, ( 6 to 10) 55, ( 11 to 15) 35, = Total 189.

    Dogs: ( 1 to 5) 97, ( 6 to 10) 46, ( 11 to 15) 35, = Total 178.


    Ladder:
    Melb : 328

    StK: 193
    Freo: 189
    Dogs: 178
    Carl: 158
    GC: 151

    Ok so teams that play finals obviously play more games and have more opportunity to score
    goals, but there are some anomalies there as well as a grand canyon sized rift between the
    haves and the have nots. It might be interesting to do players ( 16 to 20), but you would be
    dealing with some small numbers.

    Couple tiny bits of info, not sure where to put them.

    Picken is absolutely certain that he is playing games next year. Also is absolutely certain that English is happy in Melbourne and will be a top ruck of the competition. Effusive in his praise for him.

    Well that was very average, a lot of the numbers reflective of game styles and
    always playing home games against crappy sides.

    Anyone know when preseason training starts? I thought it started around November then they took a few weeks off around Christmas?

    Reason I ask is I need to get Tom Boyd and Jake Stringer to sign my 2016 premiers guernsey for it to be fully complete.

    From memory it's usually a few days after the draft in late November. Boyd might be in the group that starts a week or 2 later.

    If you've got a teenage female family member, she might b the one to get the Stringer signature :)

    Gowers recovering after car accident

    Western Bulldogs utility Billy Gowers was involved in a car accident early on Thursday afternoon, having been at the Club earlier that day.

    As a result of the collision, Billy sustained a fractured wrist, which has been repaired today.

    There were no other serious injuries sustained by the other occupants of the two vehicles involved.

    Billy is expected to be on the sidelines for a short period of time while he recovers from his injury, and his preparation for the 2019 season will not be impacted significantly.

    Does anyone else thinks that this couples resemblance to Jake Stringer and Abby Gilmore is uncanny? I know Jake doesn't play with us anymore but I had to share this with someone.

    For anyone on twitter....do yourself a favour and like the Days Since Essendon Won a Final account.

    It is pure joy being reminded of it everyday

    Thanks to the Bulldog Tragican for informing me of its existence

    Can you do a graph of that? I think I can detect a disturbing trend.

    Disturbing in a way. They are forever young in my mind.
    Thanks for the pic though!

    I haven't changed in 25 years. Not one bit. Except, maybe, for the greyish hair, bit of weight, using a walker to get around, etc., etc., etc. Nah, not one bit. :(

    The strangest thing is running into students I haven't seen in 30+ years. The local pizza parlour owner was in my Form 3 class in 1976. He's now about 56. :eek: (I do get discounted/free pizzas from him when I stop in. :D)
