    I enjoy watching Essendon play.
    They have moved away from Goddard chipping the ball around in their defensive 50.
    Careful slow boring risk free football.
    Now they take the game on with their leg speed (Saad).
    Exciting modern fast efficient football.

    feel free too if and when you get the absolute reem job we have been getting lately.

    couldn't give a shit if the free kick is uneven, as long as they call the same game for both teams, something that i haven't seen for 4 weeks for us.

    Hearing any VFL fan coming to our board and complaining about getting done over by the Umpires is absolutely beyond the pale

    I didn't say Gold Coast doesn't get done over also mate. All i said was that we were copping a reeming over the last 3 weeks ( statistically accurate) and all i want is the game to be called fair for both sides.

    Not sure you have to mate it this a VFL vs SEAFL thing. I bloody live in Sydney anyway!

    ahahahaha, surely this is a pisstake, that's us every week, even at home. It was 9 - 1 last week in favour of north for the first quarter alone, 5 of which directly led to scoring shots

    relax dude, all i'm pointing out is statistics....

    Ess last 3 rounds - 45 for 80 against

    GC last 3 rounds - 60 for 63 against


    all i said was that over the last 3 weeks Essendon has been getting done over, and i said that hopefully this game is called fairly FOR BOTH teams. I am not in any way saying anything bad about gold coast....

    Raw free kick stats don't always give the whole picture though - it is genuinely possible that your players were just giving away a lot of free kicks, or that the other team was just very disciplined. It also doesn't tell you the actual outcome of those free kicks - ie. i'd rather have 20 - 0 free kicks all given from our forward line rather than the 9 - 2 last week in the first quarter where most of them were inside North's 50 and they got shots on goal.

    I'll admit you got shafted in the WCE game but everyone does when they play them over there.

    Fair Enough. You should move up here up here to the Beautiful Little City and join the Suns Crusade. It’s the best advice you will ever get.

    Anyone else hoping that our boys rough up Saad a little?

    Absolutely! It’s only fair the first game back against your old side at their home ground! Gotta have a taste of your old Metricon soil...

    Makes sense seeing as Essendon always play trash against bottom sides, also no Stringer which helps us immensely.

    No changes to the team.

    Interesting tact but not completely unsurprising.

    The NEAFL team will be bloody decent this week though.

    Rosa, Hanley and Fiorini into the team, and Bowes back in next week.

    Dew must of been super happy with that 40 pt loss last week for there to be no change at all to the team.

    I don't know who you could bring in that could improve the team that is 100% fit.

    I expect next week to see some decent changes though.

    The reserves team had the bye last week. Hard to press for selection. No changes can't be all bad. Can't think of how many times we've had an unchanged side over the last few years.

    I know this would be bad for our rise up the reverse ladder, but winning a couple of games on the run home would be fine with me.
    Knock off the Bombers, the Blues and the Lions at Metricon?
    Sign me up right now.
    Start this week. 10 losses in a row is enough.

    There is a guy in the reserves that had 34 disposals and 14 marks , he might be a option.

    Wish the game was streamed. The team looks great except ruck?
