Easter Thursday Blue-buster


#21

To direct enough money to them while they’re ■■■■ so that they think breaching salary cap rules is a good idea again.


#22

16 club supporters are gonna whinge
Pies and Lions will go into meldown.
Kochies gonna be ropeable

Lets do it!


#23

I can tell you it happened in 1984 because one of my sons was born on Easter Sunday that year, April 22. I don’t recall him having a subsequent Easter birthday.


#24

You’ve sold me.


#25

I see this as a step below the Anzac Day, Dreamtime and even Country games. It is like asking for Essendon Hawthorn each round one. After all, there is no proposed theme, just a way of getting our match at the start of the Easter weekend before people have gone away.

Understandably a lot of the air has gone out of what used to be Car*ton blockbusters, remember how big *lues v Pies used to be?


#26

There’s no credible evidence that this ever happened.


#27

Would it not be better if Essington played Fark Carlton on Good Friday, meaning Essendon could rise again on Eater Sunday.


#28

Classic Blitz whinging.

This is ■■■■■■ awesome. Another marquee game to rub it in to the rest of the competition!


#29

I somehow think our average 15 year record of struggling is not really causing fear or envy to the top teams


#30

Why is it any more of a blockbuster game? The winner still gets 4 points regardless.


#31

Tell that to every opposition supporter that is yelling green in the face every time ANZAC day rules around.


#32

And Carlton to crawl out from under a rock


#33

And apparently 30 years until Easter Thursday coincides with the “traditional” Carlton/Richmond opening game of the season. So we’re good to go!


#34

The AFL will reschedule Easter


#35

Match result aside I probably look forward to the dream time game more than any of our blockbusters.


#36

We should have it so hirdy floats in on a cloud with a beard and robes. And on the back of the robe “happy fkn Easter Gil”.

And shoots Easter eggs into the crowd with one of those tshirt guns.

That’d be cool.


#37

Being our 1st game after an excruciating off season wait, … it would be better termed a Footy Blue ball-buster.


#38

With all due respect, we are farking shithouse at marque games.


#39

Don’t fret. I think the next decade will be the polar opposite to the last.


#40

Yeah, but what about milestone games?

Oh, OK but what about “mini-finals”?

Umm, elimination finals?

?Qualifying for finals?

Beating Carlton?

It seems to be that we are OK in games which don’t have more significance than 4 points.
