I’d be inclined to err on the side of Campbell Brown is talking sh*t for attention on this one.

Absolutely disgusted that our boys never went ahead and chucked them about the club like empty tracksuits.
But then again the story is almost certainly total BS.

No doubt they’re covering the jab fiasco in detail?
Surely it will be turned into a positive (pardon the pun)? "Bombers fully jabbed early this century", "Essendon forward thinkers for jabbing in 2012", "Hird's boys lead the way in showing AFL players a jab doesn't hurt".....

I think the Feds missed a golden opportunity to put out a Covid commercial encouraging vaccines using Watson & Co as the influencers.

Might be worth cooling our respective jets on this Campbell Brown podcast special a month after the supposed event. If it had actually happened, a real media personality would have run with it.

I noticed that the Bulldog Tragician hasn't done a post-GF blog post/article. I hope she's doing okay.
Would be masochistic to relive it and write about it. She's like the rest of us, practising avoidance. It will be the day never to be spoken of.

I wonder if other clubs' fans have felt the same after losing a GF. I've never thought of it from their angle before.

Classic beat up for the rematch - it's better than there being no feeling between the teams - just enjoy it
Agreed. It is like the GWS rivalry - no doubt there is some feeling there, but the media will beat it up for all it is worth.
It really only stands to benefit both clubs in terms of exposure.
If we could both perform consistently over the coming years and build this into something like the recent Hawks Cats rivalry that would be fantastic.

Real media personality Campbell Brown is not, however he’s somewhat of an expert on nightclub fights. Just ask Steven May.

But I agree with you. I feel like this is something juicy that would’ve been broken by someone other than Ricky Nixon’s lapdog

Can anyone remember a more classless premiership team? I can’t, and I’ve been around a while. I’m with Tom Boyd on this one. Can’t stand Melbourne, and I’d have been barracking against them regardless of whether the Dogs made the GF or not. There are individuals that I like, such as Petracca, but collectively…nah.

Petracca is an arrogant C U Next Tuesday.

And “Gysberts2Bates” - how about you **** off from liking posts on this forum and go do something useful, like

a) Sending Hawthorn some flowers for saving your pathetic club from merging back in the 90’s

b) Sending the AFL some flowers for gifting you a CEO (Jackson) and a coach (Roos) because you were so pathetic

c) Sending the AFL another bunch of flowers for gifting you a not guilty verdict for tanking that would have made OJ Simpson squirm.

Article in the hun about how we nearly went Knuckles with the demons at a Perth nightclub Monday after gf.

They turned up after us, paid cash to open the 3rd floor (we already had the 2nd), then started playing that 'freed from desire' song up loud and taunting our players from the balcony.

Was calmed down by a player from each team who still live together (not sure who they were but prob easy to find out with that description).

Gonna be a few spicy years ahead between our 2 teams I think, and that's before this incident.
What it tells me is they don‘t know how to handle success, no class no dignity and no leadership.

Some people on here putting a lot of faith in Campbell Brown having the story straight. Me, I am far from convinced.
