What they're saying down at Windy Hill



Recommended Posts

Wow just took a quick look over on bomberblitz…. FMD these guys are still saltier than the Dead Sea !!!! 

seriously what a toxic vile bunch of sore losers … blaming the umps in an 11 point loss  ( bar a very very small number of reasoned posters ) , I couldn’t imagine how they’d take a free kick loss after the siren.

we were annoyed after getting shafted by some non calls in the last two minutes and then in the last 30 seconds against the crows but this is a whole next level quantum leap in whinging  … conspiracy theories , threatening of umps and opposition supporters, and just a general lack of being graceful and acknowledging that maybe your team played very well but fell just short of a very good team on the day …

....and one if not for an appalling free paid against us near the end, might well have kicked away to a five goal win, which would have happened anyway if not for inaccurate kicking given we had 18 more scoring shots!

They sook about the umpiring but they got at least two goals from trash/non calls - the Harry Jones one which was clearly over the line and the one that Peter Wright snapped, which was thrown to him off the ground, clear as daylight.

I will start with the statement that I do NOT like Essendon and have never liked their supporters.

They still talk and act as though they are important and a “big” club, despite doing nothing for so long. They are so arrogant!

However,  you can guarantee when the Bombers are involved in any AFL game,

They will either WIN or they will lose and blame the umpires, there is no greater guarantee.

I love how they complained about the ball up that went to Gawns side. It stayed in the circle, and if their ruck had attacked the ball he would have had the advantage of momentum, the umpire even told hi, he had to attack the ball. They complained as if it was a mistake and booed for ages.

I also love how a decision goes against them and they boo for the next 3 minutes! Even though the ball has gone up and down the ground several times.

Their sense of entitlement is staggering. Even after being caught injecting banned substances, they still have this entitlement, in fact it seems worse than ever!

you are not special, you get bad umpire decisions like the rest of the league. Sit the [censored] down and be glad you are still in the league

Oh my god. Even their coach is out to get them. This thing goes way deeper than anybody previously supposed. The Enlightenment is almost upon us. Trust no-one. Prepare stores of drinking water and toilet paper. Wait for orders. The password is "we're in a very good place". Godspeed.

If only it was for a mere three minutes. Might’ve made watching the match tolerable. Some of them are probs still booing now!

Found this one on Bigfooty. An unusual combination of bagging the umpires and complimenting us at the same time.

 

Well done Dees. Super team, hopefully do some big things this year.

very very poor umpiring but hey that's standard.

Running games out pretty well which is so pleasing.
I'd love to get some soldiers back to help out Parish and Merrett.
I'm pretty happy with how we competed, just keep working and we will do well.

i'd just add one thing re the game

i thought the game was planned in pretty good spirit by the players

there was no spite or melees and thugs out to intimidate like in a few other games over the weekend 

only big downer was the bummer fans and the umpires (as usual), plus the reduced number of tickets

Titus O'Reilly summary of the match

Essendon (57) v Umpires (68)

The Bombers were cruising towards an enormous victory in this one, until the AFL hierarchy, who have been long involved in a conspiracy to destroy the Essendon Football Club, told the umpires to make sure Melbourne won.

GOLD :)

 Goodness me, some Essendon work colleagues weren’t very friendly today. I was greeted with “free kick Melbourne, GAGF” first thing.

I just slightly pulled down the mask so they can see the grin on my face and told them to save their energy for the Cattery.

Yeah nah, inadvertent poor taste, wouldn’t mind if GIF was changed.

 

separate subject - lets petition to change the name of the Bombers, what sort of effed up name is that?, for a machine that kills people indiscriminately or a bunch or radical god botherers that like to self immolate. I hear the name and I think of Saudi princes being knobs over Yemen or the WTC.

The doping scandal has spawned a whole new generation of ‘victims’ down at Windy Pill.  
 

Had noticed it amongst some Essendrug-supporting mates in recent times - they really didn’t dope well with the fallout from the Dank/Hird scandal and believe everyone is against them.  
 

The booing on Saturday was unusual for a non-Perth team.

There was some NQR stuff said after the Adelaide game, but this lot are a different breed. It's more like an extremist political party than a footy team to some of them.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team.

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
