Favourite Essendon player who was Indigenous

Given the round, thought it would be a good time to talk about some of the all timers

For me it was Dean Rioli from a purely watching football perspective, he is the most skilled player I have ever seen pull on the red and black.

Longy was also magnificent

Lovett in the Knights era,
I probably got to the most games during that era, due to being single and before I played local footy
Loved his line breaking pace, he was a goal kicking mid, and I took a mark off a goal he drilled when we were sitting behind the goals. Can’t remember if it was rd 22 v Hawks 09 or another round that year, anyway i bought the name a game DVD and they didnt cut to the crowd after he kicked the goal!

Also Derek Kickett was my favourite when I was a real youngster…even though we won 1993 I was shattered Derek missed out as he was a excitement machine

had a soft spot for Dean Rioli, but was dissapointed he never got himself fit.

Oh and wanganeen was my favourite player of all time, wore number 4 on my efc guernseys, shattered when he departed.

Longy - the way he toyed with the opposition in the early 90’s.

As usual with our legends - was cut down with injury.

I agree wholeheartedly with the OP. Rioli > Long> Daylight> The other guys…

Lachlan Ross from West Adelaide was one of the most raw and exciting talents I ever saw. Could have been anything. Sadly wasnt.

I loved watching Alwyn Davey play. Had some electric moments.

Loved the emu(demps) in full flight of the back flank.

Che Cockatoo is a forgotten one. He could play.
