Thread title should be self explanatory, these have to best the best and worst you have attended. I miss a few classics but here are mine.
My 5 best:
2001 v Norf
The comeback game. Norf couldn’t do anything wrong, I’d written us off when Burton slotted on me from the pocket but even now watching the replays i don’t know how we won it. Lloyd simply phenomenal.
2011 v Geelong
Hirdy and Bomber v the cats for the first time. Felt like a long time since we had even gotten close to the cats and we beat them at their game. Melksham goal just an amazing moment
2009 v Collingwood anzac day
Yeah the zaka game. We had no right to win that, the greatest steal ever made.
2000 qualifying final v Norf
Lloyd kicked his 100th and we beat Norf by 125 points in total domination. If you want to see how awesome we were in 2000 then this match really sums it up.
2007 v West Coast
Probably my obscure pick. West Coast defending premiers and we were under siege from the first bounce. They were irresistible and sheeds knew it, we threw everybody back and held them to 5.5. What happened after that was remarkable as we slowly worked back into the game claiming the lead in the last, winning by a point. Sheedy was the master that night and lucas snagged 5
1999 prelim v Carlton
I really don’t need to go any further on this
1988 v Fitzroy
One of the earliest games i went to. Cold, wet waverly park game with essendon kicking only 3 points after quarter time.
2003 semi final v Port
Horrible game aside just one of the outright worst weekends of my life. All those hours in the car to see us kick 6 goals, port supporters after the game, friend getting sick. … just rotten
1990 semi final v Collingwood
When peter sumich hit the post causing the draw it turned the 1990 finals on its head. 2 weeks off playing and the dons were flat, and the flogging the pies gave us in this game was the confidence boost that led them to the 1990 flag
2015 v st kilda
110 point drubbing from the team directly below us on the ladder. We still had a sniff of finals and this is what we served up. The saints weren’t any good and we let them romp over us. Disgusting
