Tell you what, there’s some Dees supporters with very, very short memories getting around at the moment.
Most have been pretty decent, but there’s one or two who seem to have forgotten that they’ve been a basket case for the better part of 20 years.
And "basket case" is supremely generous.

I have been reminded of the dude from bomberblitz who kept posting about how it was an absolute certainty that JUH hated the Dogs, always wanted to go to Essendon, and would absolutely be an Essendon player in 2022 if not 2021.

A laugh for your evening. That’s all.

Rule 1 of BigFooty, don't go to the main board...
The main board is not for the easily triggered. Trolls abound... But the club boards on Big Footy are equally bad in their own way. I occasionally read them for the entertainment value.. You won't find a more concentrated slice of misery gutses, special needs babies and uber-paranoid one-eyed nuffies than on Big Footy's club forums. It's hard to believe that such people really exist.

I can't speak for this board. :D I haven't read any of the threads on here.
Just visiting to see if anyone here knew something about Tim O'Brien

Posted here because H/S is pretty much a Bombres supporter.

Today's Essington Glory File:

Trade latest: Hill deal can help end Dons’ finals woe

Can't get past paywall, but you don't need to read the full article to know what's coming -

Hun declaring a Bummers dynasty, courtesy of Bobby Hill!
AFL trade period day six: Latest trades and free agency signing news
When Essendon needed a goal out of nothing in their elimination final loss to the Bulldogs, none was forthcoming. Next time, Bobby Hill could be the provider.

As Essendon fans were losing their mind at the free kicks handed to Bulldog Cody Weightman in yet another finals defeat, Ben Rutten was running out of options.
Not only did he lack the perfect match-up for the Dogs’ agent of chaos, he didn’t have a small forward to conjure a goal from nowhere on a bleak, wet Launceston day.

Essendon’s list build will only truly be finished when Adrian Dodoro can lure a big key forward — or see Harrison Jones, Kaine Baldwin or Peter Wright fast-tracked into the player to build a forward line around.
But, if he can orchestrate a trade for GWS small forward Bobby Hill in the next three days, he will have delivered Rutten two options denied to him in that seventh straight finals defeat.

Free agent acquisition Jake Kelly is the perfect match-up for those pesky medium-forwards who get under Essendon’s guard, holding Bailey Fritsch to one goal in Round 10 and keeping Toby Greene, Dustin Martin and Robbie Gray goalless in his direct time on them this year.
And while Hill isn’t yet the type of player who, like that quartet, can turn the game in 10 magnificent minutes, the young third-year forward has serious tricks.
Right now, they are only cameos, as he showed in the semi-final against Geelong when he burnt off Jake Kolodjashnij and slotted a lovely goal on the run from deep in the right forward pocket.
But the No.24 pick has the ingredients to turn into an elite pressure player who breaks lines and uses quality foot skills to hit Dons forwards in tight leading lanes.
It was why the Giants traded up in the draft to secure him after he ran 2.82m in the 20m sprint at the draft camp with recruiter Adrian Caruso saying of Hill: “It’s rare to find a player with the special qualities (Hill) possesses, hence why we moved up”.

Jake Kelly is the solution to one o the Dons’ biggest problems — stopping mid-sized forwards. Picture: Getty Images
Hill is a long way from the finished article, but the beauty of Essendon’s list build is he doesn‘t have to be right now.
And he doesn’t have to do it on his own.
In that final against the Dogs Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti was missing, with Archie Perkins exhausted after a long debut year (six possessions, no scoring shots), while Wright was the only Bomber on the field not to take a mark.

Not sure why any other clubs would bother fielding a team in the next five years, given Essendon is now apparently guaranteed the next five flags according to Bomber nuffs in the media.

A lot more than five, actually.

As many as it takes to maintain sales of the HUN 😆



Gullibles buying a "newspaper" that keeps feeding their hopes and dreams...

Easton Wood retires.

We almost need an ultra reverse Kingsley- the Easton Wood thread of players we beat so badly that they never recovered.
Classless bunch over on the Demons board.
