Is this the Taranto Essington could have drafted, but they went for that kid from The Mask instead?
What a terrible decision to pass on both McCluggage and Tarranto!! Instead they drafted another midget!! They already had parish on the list taking up the role as the most vanilla low impact player in the comp. *dodo is a dud.

McGrath's a good player and looked impressive against West Coast, but he's levels below McLuggage and Taranto.

1 hot day doesn't make a summer!!

He averages 20 touches a game - he is 3 levels below the above 2 player. Another low impact midget midfielder for *ess.

It astounds my Essendon supporting brother that Dodo remains in charge of recruiting. He thinks he's a North plant.

Essendon are comfortably the worst run club in the league.

Get a generational talent in Daniher gifted to them via f/s (and before Sydney could sneak him into the academy) yet don't even manage to win a final with him, and now he's pissing off on them because - despite their zillions of dollars - they can't get even get him decent medicos.

At least we won a final with JWS.

I thought ... feared ... the drug cheating would cause them to actually smarten up and turn into a modern professional club.

But nah, they're back to pretending it is in 1986 again.
As long as that great bastion of self-entitled Free Masonry, the Essendonians, has a say in things they'll still be running the place like it's 1896.

Plenty of *donial in the responses here
I can think of a few reasons to leave *

1 haven't won a final for 5500+ days
2 the coach wants out but * don't have the stones to sack him
3 having to put up with campaigners like hooker and stringer
4 club so weak they had to relocate because of a bowls club
5 the drugs have worn off
