He is loved by the old Sheedy crew. There are ex-bombers who are life members that support him to the hilt.

I thought Port were good against us and had really smart structures against us. The Port fans were filthy but they did alot right.

Connor Rozee might be the best player in the league but he couldn't dominate against viney, petracca and clarry

Man that is a hellava boys club. Poor results for 20 years but he’s a good bloke so whatever I guess?

It didn't take long for them to lose 'The Edge'

Decided to check out bf!   Thought I wold drop by and share their comments:

  • Gather round sucks!
  • This team is trash. Make a statement at selection. Embarrassing.
  • I ******* hate being a fan of the most pathetic club in the competition.
  • And now hopefully people see why Scott said it’s an 8 year plan and not 3 or whatever.
  • Essendon Edge? More like Essendon lay down and die.
  • Amazing example of an arrogant upstart team coming in and thinking ‘if we do what we do, we don’t have to worry about the opposition’, and the getting absolutely ****ing smashed for their hubris and naivety.
  • absolutely owned. outworked and outclassed.
  • Finally, it feels like a normal season again. Was feeling a bit weird there for a hot minute.
  • Every year it's the same s**t. We knock off dawks, norf, etc
  • Maybe have a "breakout" win against 'aints or whoever, have a chance to make a statement (even if we don't win) and what happens. We s**t the bed.
  • No composure when we had the ball and no pressure when we didn’t.
  • Is draper undroppable ? The hype around this bloke is ******* hysterical
  • Parish … 6 years for a bloke we don’t need.
  • Fair to say its the same stuff with this group - against the big clubs/games & adversity(interstate away games) we are soft, weak & unskillful.
  • There are no positives to that game. None. Zero. … Need to burn the entire list and start again post Dodo. We have no speed, no skills, no grunt, no winners …Same s**t, different year.
  • Kinda tempted to have an all time melt but don’t have the energy for this s**t anymore.  We undid every positive from the first 3 rounds. Lots of work to even cement ourselves as a mid table team.
  • Get someone from the Melbourne Storm to teach those soft pretty boys how to tackle for a start.
  • Our style is flat track bullies.
  • Calling it, season over.
  • Huge% loss tonight. Now an uncompetitive 82%.
  • i am essenDONE
  • Need more AFL lifestyle

The Understatement

  • A bit s**t

A hint of optimism:

  • Need to put this behind us as quick as possible and use it as a reality check.

 My Favourite:

  • Oh well, where was the Edge? They lied, we were on the Edge of a cliff!

Can't agree with this comment

  • Cats V Power GF, calling it now. 

I had the Dees in the GF before the season even started.  Stand by that.  Don't care who we play, probably GWS.

 

My wish for Ess is not to be stuck at the bottom of the ladder as they would reap early draft picks.  My wish is for them to be forever stuck in the wilderness of a mid tier team.  Hoping like hell that Collingwood join them there for a long time to come!!

 

Enjoy the season D'landers.  It will be a very good one.

Love having you back. Even if it's one day only!

I was talking to an Essendon supporter after the Dees/Hawks game.  He said Essendon were still talking about the glory days of the 80's and that generation has too much influence.  Sheedy is on the board.....reckons it was his direct call not to pick Selwood.

I heard a funny story about when Scott was appointed. 

He was meeting one of the coterie groups and the head of the coterie asked for Scott's mobile number. 

Scott said "what for?"

And the coterie guy said "oh i always have the coach's mobile number"

"Not this f**ing coach you don't" came the reply

Coterie man was shocked 😲 

The coterie groups have always had way too much power at bomberland

The club is hamstrung by their glory days,  powerful supporters and an inbred mentality

Long may it continue

Finey calling out 'the Edge'.  The only segment worth listening to via the SEN podcast or on the night.  Peaky's a crack up & reminds me a little of uncle Doug from the old Wide World of Sports (basically a VFL footy show) from the 70s...

You can throw the rest of SEN in the bland AFL 'lackeys' bin..

They will remain a joke so long as Dodo gets to run rampant throughout that organisation. Here’s hoping they sign him up for another 10 years.

 

And all this time we thought dodos were extinct. One still roams the habitat of Windy Hill.

Reading the Gather Round commentary, it is almost universal praise for MFC, that and they like seeing Adelaide supporters implode.

Praise for 

McVee, Trac, Kossie, Lever, May etc, our recruiting, that we were stiffed on frees And this gem as well

“Nobody has mentioned that Melbourne are off a 5 day break in one the most bruising games of the season. The game against Port was next level tough… and close.

If this was us the week after we would be about 50 points down by now.

They are A+.“

This poster from Bomberblitz at least has a sense of humour:

Just after half time I was having a conversation with Mrs hambo about a house we had recently bid on and missed. Turns out the top bidders have dubious finance and may not come through with the money meaning that it may fall to us. This distracted me from the footy but also from my glass of red wine which I knocked making it rock side to side and spill wine on the table and rug. I then rectified the situation by grabbing from another direction with the other hand. Unfortunately this exaggerated the rocking effect and more wine fell on the floor, my shirt and the couch. I countered with a big catch which didn’t go so well and I smacked the glass into the wall and now have red wine and broken glass absolutely everywhere.
who played it better?
hambo?
Essendon?

Had a similar red wine spill the other night at my hotel trying to set myself up at a motel I was staying.  Was trying to plug a phone charger in besides the bedside table, forgetting that I'd just put a glass of red on same bedside table - oops.  Ended up all over the white bedsheets.

After vain attempts to rinse from the sheet, I gave up and just watched the replay of our Adelaide win on my phone's Kayo app.

He looks AVERAGE as hell. For a big defender he doesn’t impose himself on the game at all. You hardly notice him. Watching May play, it’s impossible not to see him. 

Respectively, May is like the impenetrable great wall of China - can see him from space...and he keeps the rabbits out.

Browsed bomberblitz and bf.  The outrage has settled and resignation at another lost season has set in. 

That aside, I found a few things that made me chuckle !!!

  • grab another couple mid table players as FA.
  • We’re all frustrated given the last 20 years however we need to be patient.
  • watch the first quarter. We played really well.
  • Who gives a toss what the senior players think? They dished up the 12 goal loss
  • That performance left me feeling edgy.
  • Haha. I could give them a piece of my mind but they'd probably just refer it to Dodoro.
  • Also, worst song in the league.
  • Keep drafting sh-t, keep trading sh-t, keep getting sh-t results
  • Well finish 9th. No hard decisions will be made and on it goes.
  • There’s an excellent team with $10 memberships and a bright future of draft concessions you could join.
  • Port players just ran through us like turn styles all night.
  • Is it acceptable to change AFL teams after 35 years?
  • I expect a written apology from all the Essendon Happy Clappers.
  • I do wonder what it’s like to support a successful team
  • We need to actively bottom out … This fight for mid table has to end.
  • Culture at Essendon has been [censored] for a long long time now
  • Have not seen the score how did we go? Was it close and did we bring the edge?
  • Praying one of my 4 kids gets drafted so I have a legit excuse to pack it in with this mob
  • Time to start tanking.
  • The smashing we had to have
  • Poor bastards who went over for this. I’d suggest to them that they get on the wine tours and not to drink for pleasure but to drink to forget
  •

I liked Essendon when they had their breakthrough flags in 1984/5 but must say have disliked them since their sniping tactics in the 1990 and especially 2000 grand finals. I still don't like them for this reason, plus the later d**g/p******s  scandal, but must say the whole thing feels tragic now, esp. for many of their supporters. Don't forget the Dees spent generations in this wilderness, and it ain't pretty. They are my feelings after reading through some of these Bomber blitz comments.

Stay strong. Eliminate these feelings resembling "sympathy". I don't recall anything but derision and contempt coming our way in our many years in the wilderness.

Yeah, good call.  Now there is a guy that has 'The Edge'.

I went to the second half the Dons vs Sandringham recently.It was competitive for the first half but Sandy AkA Saints totally dominated the 2nd half.So don’t think Dons have much depth to improve their game.

i just hope dodoro stays as their recruiting guru, brad scott as their coach, sheedy on their board, and that their coterie mob keep interfering, for ever and ever. what bliss that would be.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
