No. That's not it.
The bond & camaraderie we have in THIS team, is totally unique, it's something you couldn't orchestrate if you wanted to. This is going to sound weird, but we really should, & or will look upon the SAGA as a blessing, .. the spirit & purpose of this team is something I doubt has ever been before in the History of this game.
We want, A) Nothing to fcuk with that,.. and B) To foster it and keep it for as long as is possible. We want no dollar chasers.
I don't know if this is wishful thinking, but I'd like it to be that we only take players that come TO US, and are willing to take a shave simply to be part of the spirit that is the rock solid base of the Essendon Football Club going forward.
