Special Edition: What They are saying at 'The Edge'!

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.

As a young fella with Essendon supporting relos I remember being excited and happy for them when they won the flag in '84, was a huge party that night.
Those same relos and essendon supporters in general then proceeded to rub their success in my face for the next 30yrs solidifying my hatred for the club.
These days I work with a couple essendon supporters in their early 20s who don't remember being successful at all and I love to listen to the disappointment in their club.
Showed me where their next generation of supporters are psychologically. 
Fair to say I bathe in their miserable tears.

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.

How did you get Kayo to work?

I dunno?  It just did - am I missing something?

I was up in Brisbane and the game had already finished.  I wasn't that drunk spilling the red wine everywhere if that's what you're inferring - I'm just naturally a bit ditsy and uncoordinated!!

Not implying anything about your personal habits @Rodney (Balls) Grinter. I just find Kayo a diabolical piece of Stih.

I mean just go look at the YouTube video of long smashing into simmonds and rekindle that hatred

My husband got offered free corporate box seats for the ANZAC game through a client, and was like “there’s not enough free alcohol in the world that will make me want to go to watch Essendon and Collingwood play on my day off” 😂

LOL!

iirc your husband wasn't a Dees supporter before you made it a condition of marriage that he become one!.

Good to see his blood truly runs red and blue and he has adopted the universal hatred of Ess and Coll.

Well done!!

He was a very disinterested Richmond supporter when we met, but now he's definitely a Dees man (it was my dad's only condition for marriage haha). You know he gets it though when ANB is his favourite player, and has been since 2021!

But to be fair, hating Essendon and Collingwood (and Carlton) was ingrained in him from childhood by his Richmond mad dad and his Hawthorn mad mum.

    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 by Whispering Jack

    … 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
