Calling a huge upset here. Win by 2 points.
The lads were absolutely disrespected by this mob last time.
If they have ANY fire in their bellies, this is the game we're motivated for.

The only fire in Essendon players' bellies this season is the one from last nights curry dinner.

Didn’t we just get our annual pasting from the Swans 3 weeks ago? Is the AFL just trying to get their lovechild another percentage booster before the finals? Sydney by triple digits and change

We already have a mountain of evidence that there is not much fire in the belly

It's like to see Shiel bury Parker every time he goes near the ball. Ffs stand up for yourselves. That crap wouldn't have happened 20 years ago
I just rewatched the 2000 grand final and none of the players are soft like the"I can't believe it's not butter" players we have now

You know the opposition don't believe you're a threat when their preview thread is all about toasted sandwiches. Now I'm hungry, thanks swan fans.

Your welcome!

Reid has not been playing key back in the VFL. Right now he is not physically ready to play KP . No point calling for him to come in and play KP.
BZT and Brand have been taking most of the KPD in the VFL along with Eyre .

If Sydney are up and about this could get really ugly fast. They love playing on a big ground.

Also what’s happened with the merrett spending time at half back plan, is he actually going to spend any time there or was that just wasted training hours during the preseason.

We’ve reverted to what works™️ c. 2021, but with McGrath permanently in defence… or so it seems.

Welcome! it makes watching far less frustrating.
Yes. It took until my early 30s to accept my inevitable demise. In my 40s I've added humans not being able to deal with climate change and that my football club was successful in my adolescence and won't be again until I'm retired.
