Lid On 2019: Anxiety emerges. Hype subsides


#221

Yeah i was just being a sarcastic ■■■■. I meant he gets caught way too much.


#222

Steady. Hes only out for the first 6.

Come home strong in the last 14.

And surely we still have the cattle without him to gain a few in the W column.


#223

there are 2 weeks till the season begins…he injured his calf on the 4th…so if its 6 weeks it will be round 5 return.


#224

But that’s a form of ‘logic’ isn’t it?
Since when did a supporter base use logic to choose, then support a team? Isn’t it about hope - misguided or otherwise? Isn’t it just about passion - escapism, even? If I wanted to go the logic path, I’d just switch teams ever few years and be happy all the time. No - just like love - you can’t account for a strong supporter base with logic.


#225

I am 100% certain that you are wrong on that.


#226

We started slow last year, that worked well.


#227

Looking forward to Thursday night! Cats were very competitive against West Coast until about 3 QTR time. They’ve struggled with us in recent games. Should be a good hit out.


#228

No amount of blowing your top, Henny Pennying and abusing other blitzers will have an effect on the team either - but there’s plenty of that going on.

To be clear, my enthusiasm has tempered somewhat, but that had nothing to do with JLT 1.


#229

I didn’t say he was good. Just that he put himself into it.


#230

Shouldn’t a stats fiend like yourself know there’s no correlation between preseason form and the real season?


#231

yep you missed it

I liked Lance’s post


#232

But he doesn’t. He half arses a lot of them, then over compensates and gives away free kicks for too high or late contact.


#233

Yeah, nah.


#234

Sad, but true. We’ve become so pathetic.


#235

Always wondered what @Mendozaaaa’s Twitter was.


#236

LOL.

All I know is the record is definitely going to be eclipsed this year by at least a week regardless of if we’re playing finals or not.


#237

Record of 5,475 wll be broken 1st Sept this year. Here’s hoping we end it soon after.


#238

Are you putting money on Essendon to win a final this year?


#239

5,475 days (current record) will fall on Sep 1. There’s the week off after h/a (last round Aug 24th) which means we hopefully reset it to 0 on the following weekend, should we play finals.

Still too early to say whether we are capable of ending it.


#240

Wouldn’t have this record if we beat North in the final had those ■■■■■ on toast and then Essington showed up.
