Offence sells memberships, defence wins premierships. Says it all really.It seems that we had the most exciting game style in the league, fans loved watching us, neutrals loved watching us...but it didn't stand up for finals, so in their wisdom they have given us a dour finals style game which forgets that you need to make finals in the first place!
Even now, we play dross for 3 quarters then only look good when we say f it, let's take it on like old times..
Go back to run and gun, least it gave us something to watch and get excited by.
Don't forget how good we were preseason, beating wce and Geelong with a quick flick game, zero stogey wide ball movement was to be seen
But really, it's our own fault for not being good enough to make their shitful decisions immaterial in the first place.Tried to not let it annoy me, but that non-decision on Petracca changed the game for mine.
Had it been called correctly, and I think we would have gone on to win.
The AFL needs to address umpiring in the game. It’s changing the result far too often
Relax, this is Essendon we’ll throw out the baby and keep the bath waterSwapped places from last year with Dees. Proves things can change dramatically season to season. Provided we change our mind set and grow confidence in ourselves and each other and bring the necessary effort for 4 quarters our best is as good as the rest. The core list is capable. Hope the turnover of delistings and retirements is reasoned and we do not throw the baby out with the bath water. Go Bombers!
