considering both clubs are so determined to hold onto the fixture they cant really blame anyone other than themselves

besides, with the way it shakes out theyll play both sides from last night anyway so it wont be lopsided from a recovery point of view

I don't get why the Essendon leadership put up with Goddard carrying on like that. It's really not a good look.

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

This is loving pathetic. This feels like Hird’s Bombers switching back and forth, scared to go up the middle and delivering shockingly to our forwards. Our midfield is a joke. You tag Zerret and who is going to step up? Hopefully we can look forward to Woosha saying we’ll learn a lot from this

Essendon getting spanked is great.

Collingwood doing the spanking is conflicing though.

I was more upset that we only got pick 13 for him cause the FA compo system is loving retarded. If we lose him the following year we get pick 4 instead.

That was such an awful game to attend. It’s the worst I’ve seen us in a long time. Far worse than the Bulldogs match. We have no depth and our midfield is a joke. It blows my mind that everyone was so hyped about Stringer, Saad, and Smith when none of them are the players we needed. We have an undersized midfield that just doesn’t stand up. Stringer, Smith and Saad are players you should be targeting for the cherry on top of a team already near complete.

Those three should still add something and don’t really explain why we’ve gone backwards from last year. I hope Dylan Clarke comes in soon and is given a crack, he’s the only other inside mid on the list so if he can’t make the step up it’ll be a long season

Well you see, 100 years ago to the day, the Germans blew the poo poo out of that town and occupied it and then 2500 odd Australians died retaking it in the morning, Victoria donated a bunch of money to the town to help it rebuild after the war and the town donated a bunch of money to Victoria after the black Saturday fires.

I guess there was enough blown up houses to make a soccer pitch which is where todays match is being played.

FRA 46 AUS 55 9 minutes into the third.

This is better than AFLX.

There's just something about how he slowly slides into frame, outstretched finger first that kills me, haha.

I reckon Daniher is carrying a niggle or something because he’s looked completely out of sorts this season. His kicking is about the same as normal but at least last year he ran around a lot presenting a target which he hasn’t done much so far.

The rematch loss would have been worth it to see Goddard go literally insane on the field and start fighting (collingwood) cunts left right and centre.

Finishes off the 22 and then starts on the supporters.

Goddard is a giant baby, but I can’t really fault him for going off at team mates. At least he showed that getting smashed meant something to him. There were far too many players out there that seemingly didn’t care and had no guts. Whether yelling at them is the right thing or not I don’t know. But Goddard played a pretty good game so it wasn’t like he wasn’t in a position to point at others for not being on the same level. He was demanding more of his team mates who honestly should have more demanded of them.

Looks like he was getting tagged and boiled over. Didak looks ready to swing a punch there as well.
