Similar thread on the Collingwood board shows they hate Carlton far more than anyone else including Essendon.
Interesting to see Collingwood hate Carlton more than Carlton hate Collingwood, especially when Collingwood are generally accepted as being the most hated club in the league.
I feel this way about Collingwood. I have nothing but contempt for Essendon.Love them both. The second and third greatest teams of all time. The best rivalries, the biggest and loudest crowds in the league when they go to battle against us.
I love sticking the boots into them after a win, hating them after a loss and taking the piss out of them when they blow their salary cap and have to trade their best players or get busted for drug cheating and get suspended for a year.
I’m a footy fan, I love seeing great football players and games. Loved Michael Long, thought McGuane’s goal was amazing. Hird was overrated, Lloyd was an out and out superstar. Buckley was one of the best mids I’ve seen, carried an absolute sh*t truck to a grand final. Hope we continue to have epic battles against them for many more years.
It was Ron Evans and his Cabal on the AFL commission that very nearly killed off the club in 2002 that swayed me from being a life long hater or Essendon, growing up in North Ringwood and going to high school with girls who swooned over Gavin Wanganeen and later James Hird) and wouldn't give me the time of the day for a date didn't help either (admittedly being bit of an introvert who spent a lot of time during recess at the library didn't help my street cred either)I don't mind both of these teams copping a good thumping on any given day...
But the drug cheating tipped me towards those.
