So it’s been quite a long decade. I think the thing that makes this decade the worst ever to be an Essendon supporter is that it started out so full of promise.
We had Jobe leading the team, Hirdy coaching for the first time and we won 5 of our first 8. What could possibly go wrong?
Well as it turns out - a lot actually.
Throughout we have been given renewed glimpses of hope - only to have it taken away from us as if we are being manipulated by some sick overlord playing his cruel game - hmmm.
For those not old enough to appreciate earlier times - I feel sorry for you. I really do.
We lost a game in Sydney from a position where it was un-losable. I never recovered from that loss.

I’d buy it if as a bonus feature it had Knighta when he lost his ■■■■ with sheep teeth Liberatore.
The label would be on the DVD side…

The best moment was 31 March 2015 when we beat ASADA. It was an amazing day for the club and we rode that euphoria for a few weeks.
