  1. I would give my left nut for us to play like the Bulldogs. Young list who all crack in and are great to watch. Im on the Doggies train, praying they make the 8.
  2. If you don’t want to renew next year mate then don’t, that’s fine and you are well within your rights to do so given the reasons you’ve pointed out. It is a choice after all... For me...id rather keep coughing up regardless, because (if and) when we do finally break that drought and snag a flag...whenever the hell that may be, I’ll know myself that I have truly supported the club through thick and thin and i reckon that might make things that little bit sweeter. At the very least, no one I know has ever been able to accuse me of being a bandwagon supporter. We are a laughing stock no doubt, but my family and mates respect me for sticking by this basket case of a club. Makes me feel a bit better about things anyway...
  3. I get 9 weeks a year and in that time drink as many cans as is humanly possible...but I understand what you are getting at..
  4. This club could drag me down the Monash Freeway by the balls and then hose me down with vinegar and for some reason id still renew. Kills me but I bloody love the joint. Already endured the worst of the worst, so why would I stop now. Deep down I must get off on this [censored]. Bring it on.
  5. I buy four memberships a year on top of an MCC membership and am also completely disheartened but would put good money on us making the 8 next year. edit - I’m not trying to make this a membership pissing contest either.
  6. Said on 3aw before the game the game plan needs to be adapted over the summer. He actually spoke like a human during the interview, not the robot we get every post game.
  7. Thank god for that. I’m a walking discounted New Balance apparel advertisement these days. My street cred around Eltham is safe for another 3 years.
  8. You can’t build a players trade worth playing them in the twos...
  9. Played as a mid for Casey out of necessity, he’s the furthest thing from an “inside” mid known to man.
  10. When has Kennedy Harris ever been an inside mid?
  11. I probably will, thanks. Just give me a day of sobriety.
  12. It’s pretty sad when you arrive at the point where you are that starved of sporting team supporting success, where you almost wish your team would just shut the doors and put you out of your misery.. I’m almost at that point with the MFC. After 43 years of ups and mostly downs, the adrenaline injection I got during finals last year turned me into a success starved junkie....now Im chasing a taste of the good stuff again... I fear I’m not going to see it again, at least in the short term. It really does ruin my weekends. I wish I didn’t care so much...
  13. Well he has no worries going forward at the MFC then...
  14. I didn’t even notice the umpire was female. All I knew was they seemingly had a relatively high voice and that they were absolutely shithouse. Couldve been anyone. End of the day...shithouse. edit: in all seriousness the admins might want to add the word shithouse to the censored list.
  15. I just wish he would speak like he is speaking to any one of his mates, instead of the robotic rehearsed media training rubbish he brings week in week out. I understand the need to tow the company line every now and then, but for [censored] sake cut the monotone [censored], show some emotion and speak frankly. The supporters deserve it after this diabolical year. It’s too late the stem the bleeding now...
  16. Hate is a strong word and I don’t hate many things in life, but by god I hate the Essendon Football Club. No other club compares....and to think I used to think Richmond and Collingwood came close..
  17. Regardless of how it relates to this thread, watching those highlights make me feel alive again. I could watch the Selwood/Melksham/Harmes incident on the boundary on repeat for the remainder of this calendar year and survive on bare minimum food rations.
  18. Very sad for Al...a man of great integrity and football knowledge. He’s the fall guy for a club with awful administration and years of poor recruitment. Would welcome him with open arms to the Dees.
  19. Edit: wrong threads oops
  20. Yeah...Perhaps evolve into “Stevedamanjordan”. Keep it real for the kids as well.
  21. We did. The overwhelming consensus (as a result) was that Oscar needed to do a mini pre season and thank god now everything is back on track.
  22. That club have been raped and pillaged by opposition clubs at the hands of the AFL. I believe they have every right to ask for compensation. They were set up to fail from the start compared to GWS.
  23. You’re a Melbourne supporter and you are questioning this? Allow me to take you back to 2009...at least they are attempting to win games.
