Lol - nice spin. Both have had injuries miss managed - both hate the club and want out.
Lol nice spin. Neither have said any such thing.

Couldn’t name another Vic club??
I don't care to get into some never ending circular argument about what players values are which would be the next phase of this utterly boring and ultimately pointless proposition.

Yeah and its not that hard to work out - both been injured for 2 years - both have played clearly hurt - both have walked out on the club while under contract. These are facts.

Good players continue to walk out of your club. No other Vic team have had the quality leave. It's why you continue to be a laughing stock - 15 years!!!

This sums up your club perfectly!!

“We, as recruiters and list managers, look at the quality of what’s in the actual draft coming up. It’s about replacing a key forward and at this point he’s irreplaceable for us.

“It’s like owning a house, people knock on your door and say they want to buy your house — it’s up to them to tell us what they’ll pay for it.”
Yeah, its just like owning a house Adrian, if like, its one of those houses that can grow legs and walk off of its volition 12 months from now if you don't sell it to the people knocking on your door.

One of those houses.

It’s like a houses value in far North Queensland, when you’re sitting in a shelter and a monster tropical cyclone is about to hit.

Part of me was concerned after the drug shit the Bombers would actually get their act and become a powerhouse.

Safe to say that's been allayed.
It's going to take a generation before the mindset that was actually willing to implement and run a large scale cheating program is fully purged from the club.

Generation?
it’ll be one of those things that * kids get picked on in the playground until they fold. Or change name to Tullamarine or northern bombers.

Thing is, they won't be able to wear being shit for an extended period, so they'll do something else dodgy to try and get onfield rich quick, and they'll get caught and the system will rinse and repeat.

For eternity.

Essendon will be shit for all eternity.

One of my ‘mates’ is a * supporter and has asked a group of us how he can genuinely and authentically change teams. He’s had a gut full of *. We think he writes a letter to the club to announce his changing allegiance and perhaps make a blood sacrifice as an offering to the footy gods. Just a small invertebrates or something without a spine.

Okay, who's showing up with a sledge hammer to the working bee?

Essendon club spirit will be destroyed if Windy Hill grandstands go, fans say

Bombers fans are furious with a council vision for Windy Hill that could see the site’s sacred and historic grandstands torn down. The plans have suggested removing two of the three grandstands to create more open space as part of a council draft vision to reinvigorate the site. The suggestion is just one of several possible options to improve the area, including new netball courts and a playground. The council document said grandstand removals would generate more land for other purposes such as public space or a sporting hub. The plans are only in the draft stage and nothing is set in stone.

The author of 2017’s We Are Essendon, Rick Edwards, said the grandstands were iconic and should stay a part of the precinct.

“You just don’t tear down historical and iconic grandstands so there’s more space for people to walk their dogs or kick a soccer ball,” he said. “Essendon’s AFL side may have moved from the ground, but its spirit remains.” The Bombers’ AFL club has shifted its base to Tullamarine, but the oval is still used for home matches for its VFL side. “Grandstand seating is also necessary so crowds can sit in comfort at VFL games,” Mr Edwards said.

Bombers fans took to social media to vent their frustrations, citing cultural and historical significance, a need for shelter during games and the destruction of the club’s spirit as reasons to keep the stands. “We think the grandstands should stay and be adaptively re-purposed. They are an integral part of the site’s heritage fabric,” wrote Adam Ford. “These grandstands are intrinsically linked to the history of this hallowed precinct, surely some renovation and mixed-use utilisation of these heritage structures could be incorporated into the master plan,” wrote Ian Mason.

Many questioned why the grandstands were not heritage-listed, as they had such a cultural significance for the Essendon Football Club.

Moonee Valley Mayor Narelle Sharpe said the council had not made any decisions on any of the infrastructure yet, and the draft vision was in the process of being redrafted with the latest round of community feedback. “There are no plans for how the precinct will look at this stage,” she said. “The draft vision highlights a number of community concerns, including that the grandstands are in urgent need of upkeep. “It is absolutely our intention to maintain the history of the football club at Windy Hill.” Heritage Victoria and the Essendon Football Club were contacted for comment but did not respond by the deadline.

LOL. Next they'll want to list the off-site injecting room that they used to establish plausible deniability of their drug addled attempt to become relevant in the 21st centuary.
