About a couple of those marks, SMadden's. The one against the Pies, was out at Waverley. Simon was selected at CHF and Billy Picken played on him. Essendon had lost the first 5 games of the 1981 season and Sheedy was threatening to make a comeback. Going out to Arctic Park, the pressure was on, but the SEA level was high and rising all the time. Madden took that mark at the southern end and duly slotted through the goal. When he went up for that mark he also carried all the expectations of our season with him, as he basically stood on Picken's shoulders. l don't remember how many goals he kicked that day, perhaps five, but l remember it being a glorious day and that win was the first in our run of 15. Going into that game l was confident of the win, there was a certain buzz building about the team. When he took that mark l was certain we would win. That mark as much as anything else ignited the team and is in my opinion a mark that changed the club forever. Without we might have just remained a team of hopeful Baby Bombers, but nothing would be the same after that, because that mark charged them all with self belief. 

 

The second mark was taken in 1979 at Windy Hill, in front of the bowling green. Geoff Raines won mark of the year but when he accepted the prize he said that in his opinion SMadden's was the better mark. Big guys aren't supposed to take marks like that. As l watched him go for it he went up in two distinct stages, first on to the shoulders, then he straightened up and rose even higher. l have never seen a better a mark taken at Windy Hill.

Yep, it was a great mark, but you forgot about the game the previous week against St.Kilda at Windy Hill (happens to the best of us as the years roll by). That was the game that Sheedy and EFC had to win. It was a miserable day but the Dons got up. Neale and TD played and you couldn’t help feel the air of expectation after the game.

Sorry DJR, I didn't notice that. For the one's that rather Ch.10 commentary:


My favorite bit about this, whenever I look back, is Robert Walls laughing off Quartermain when he says 'hello' after Jetta's goal.
Those who laugh last laugh loudest. Suck it Walls.

1. there is nothing "special" about Tony Shaw's comments, nothing at all

 

2. no permanent count down clock

 

3. i never thought i'd be thankful for fluro umpires

 

4. lol at dimma going forward late and decking guys on their kick in

 

5. fletch, 3 goal assists in the last 10 minutes - send the man fwd.

1) Now that‘s the kind of crowd noise you want to hear.
2) If you had to pick an Australian of the Year, Bolton > Goodes.
3) Umpires have always been shithouse (see Bolts‘ non-50-metre penalty)
4) When Alessio took that first mark, I instantly went “hey, this is the game we win by 2 points!”

Now that‘s the kind of crowd noise you want to hear.

Broadcasters take note, that's how to correctly capture the atmosphere of a tight football match. 


#54

Silly question, but was T Watson a left or right footer? Because I can't tell from that video.

Bit like Hurls...you couldn't tell at times.


#55

Perhaps one of our most impressive ever losses.

 

How on earth did we get this close to the Eagles with basically a half fit team.

 

Watch the genius of Simon Madden on Dean Irving.

I cried over that match, and I was only listening on the radio…

 

Windsock tied down, a mark they‘ll be talking about in a hundred years (not), Madden‘s fake, Salmon‘s courage, Heard and Long hiding by the point post, Hamilton thrown to the Matera wolf, Burns getting a Big Bad Irving kick to the guts and playing on, Cransberg‘s miracle intercept, the player/crowd scuffle on the siren, a standing applause for a loss… was an eventful day.

Tim smashes Jobe on acceleration and top speed (love the goal against Geelong about a third of the way into that video) — yes, he's much shorter but given player inflation over the years he had much the same size advantage over his normal opposition. Even to the extent he once played on Wayne Carey and destroyed him (Carey may have had a niggling injury on that day).

 

But it remains a fact that I never noticed Tim as much as I do Jobe. I'd come away from a game and go "really? He had that many possessions and was given BOG?" It happened often enough that the memory sticks.

 

(My experience of Tim live is almost entirely from late 1989.)

You should have seen him the day he got dropped to the reserves, I came in half way through the 2nd quarter and asked the bloke in the next seat how Timmy was going, he replied "he's had about 30 possessions" I took that as a joke but he picked up 5 more in the next 3 minutes. He would have been about 18yo.

Seeing the decline in Essendon peoples contentment levels over the years of what is acceptable standard for this club, I thought i'd post a small portion of the bomberblitz 2000 edition to hopefully remind a few what can happen when a team is so dedicated and professional in their endeavors on the field and off.

(note i'm not saying even with this group if they mimic that team they'd  go 26 odd and 1 loss for the season, but you transfer that mindset into the current group, and the sky would be limit)
