Well I must say it will be a shame if Essendon are decimated by the loss of a number of players they would probably wish to keep. First Saad, now Daniher. Who next ?

Let the dominoes fall and the evil empire struggle to compete for a decade. 

Couldnt happen to a better bunch of bastrrrrrds !!!

Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of ****wits. Worst club in the history of mankind. It’s beautiful.

If Fantasia, Daniher and Saad go, then with compensation picks and traded picks , you can guarantee that our first pick (23) has dropped further. This is exactly why we traded out of this draft t

I know one Bomber member (I know, I'm ashamed to admit it) who is disgusted enough that she has emailed to cancel her membership today. She also told me that Merrett wants out, although I don't know how reliable her source is. Maybe it's just media speculation.

Other:

  • Connor McKenna broke his contract and went back to Ireland. 
  • Fantasia has had medicals with SA teams and will likely be traded.
  • Hurley and Hooker are upset that Bellchambers didn't get a farewell game.
  • Merrett is upset he was dumped from the leadership group after being VC.

Add Daniher and Saad departures and it is clear they are falling apart.

It is even better than watching them squirm their way thru the drug saga.

So much for the old committee players rallying around the flag. That's worked out well.

Saad has been saying he was thinking of leaving all year and Daniher was almost always certain to go.

I wouldn't call it imploding but it's fair to say they are a 10-14 team with a downward arrow. Much the same as Hawthorn.

Of course one has to remember they weren't too far off beating us a few weeks ago.

The only thing better than watching them bottom out would be to watch them hover just on the edge of the bottom four and constantly trying to reload based on Hubris alone, only to burn draft picks and salary cap space for no greater benefit than to keep hovering on the edge of the bottom four.

We need to be in for Merrett.

Merrett definitely wants out but they have told him they won’t trade him

I have no love for Essendon but I wouldn't say they are imploding, Jon Ralph reporting they will get pick 7 for Daniher (free agency), and they could potentially squeeze what is currently pick 7 out of Carlton for Saad. They will lose Fantasia as well and go to the draft with at worst 3 first round picks. Essendon were stuck in mediocrity for years and will go through a mini rebuild now to fix their problems, we could be stuck in the same situation in a year or 2 if we don't make drastic improvement as Gawn and May keep getting older.

I think you are channeling a little too much Ghandi, turn up the volume, and you capture it perfectly. Waves of pleasure at how they are going. I actually want Joe to stay though, clog up a spot and burn their cash

Not across it fully but I don't think many of their draft choices have gone on. Parrish seems to go in and out of average form. How about the others?

Pick 7 in this years draft is around pick 12 if not later in a "clean draft" and they have the problem of no 2020 exposed form for draftees.

A mini rebuild could be tough if they don't nail their draft choices.

PS I had forgotten McGrath.

Carlton

Carlton to acquire Williams, Saad, Merrett, Oliver & Lachie Hunter by the sounds of things. Decent off season.

Wonder if they're going to make a late play for Viney offering 6 years instead of 5.

My new favourite thread. I will visit often. 

bombers are a rabble - their arrogance has been shown up. Simply expecting to return to the top coz they are a ‘big’ club. Saad going to their arch rivals is hilarious! 

They’ve lost their HB line and run. Also Their main forward. Their talls are old and their midfield average. And their captain is one injury away from retirement. 

no longer a destination club  they’ll go to the draft and be bottom 4 for quite some time 

20 years without winning a final? Coming up! Hahaha

Fantasia is probably next cab. It's going to be fun watching Dodoro carry on like a pork chop demanding the Taj Mahal or Charlie Cameron and a bevy of picks. Hate dealing with the Bombres.

If you think pick 7 is ridiculous, there were rumours last year that Sydney offered pick 5 in last year's draft and their first round 2020 pick, which has turned out to be pick 3 this year.

They won't get pick 7 this year if Brisbane's contract is middling, which it might be salary-wise given the injury risk.

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
