29 days before the season kicks off in anger, 32 for Essendon.

Interesting first 8 games. After GWS, 2 6 day breaks before an 8 day break to play Brisbane at the G. Then another sequence of 2 6 day breaks before taking on the Cats after 10 days. Of course, the 5 day “rest” before playing away to the Swans defies logic but hey, it’s the AFL (‘nuff said).

Giants: 2018 interstate form great - win
Saints: have dominated them lately - win
Dees: 50/50 - win
Lions at the G: win
North: high scoring affair? - win
Pies: who knows!? - loss
Cats: seem to have their measure - win
Swans: rebuilding year for them? - win

Potentially, Essendon could be 7:1 (8:1 after playing Freo at Marvel) before they face their bogey team the Tiges.

Actually, Essendon could be 9:2 (playing Carlton after the Tiges) going into the bye? Wonder what the odds are for that?


#627

Sounds good to me.


#628

Where the fark did this pessimism come from?


#629

I don’t want us to start the season with Woosha saying

“well it’s clearly disappointing and I don’t know why it’s gone wrong the last 4 weeks. We have a lot of work to do to get things right. Players seem flat. But we hope to turn it around on the training track.”


#630

13 years of embarrassment / substandard performances on the iconic day will do that to a person.


#631

I’ll take 8 and 3.
Anything less and I’m lid on!


#632

Getting a win on Anzac Day against the Pies is rare as hens teeth.

Essendons’ home game this year hope we flog them and out number the ■■■■■


#633

That would be our best start to a season since 2000.


#634

Don’t think so, 2013, 2012 and 2001.


#635

Where’s the best place at the Adelaide oval for Essendon supporters?


#636

The Exit aisles early in the last.


#637

Definitely on the hill, wearing full regalia and barracking vociferously and loquaciously.


#638

thank you good sir, but did you by any chance read that as
"Where’s the best place at the Adelaide oval for Essendon supporters to die?


#639

“This is the hill I shall die on”…


#640

They are ■■■■■■■.
At worst you might get a beer thrown over you or a pie bounced off the back of your head


#641

Quiet day today Doe?
