Before my time regrettably.

Fletcher, Wallis and Heppell the only 100-gamers in my time.

But EFC history goes 87 years before “my time”. And player numbers 46 years.

I’m not sure why, but this feels right to me


#147

Please give us a decent 25! Hard to believe it’s been a disaster since Lucas retired.


#149

A reflection on number 5.

Brent Stanton started with number 34 in 2004, wore 24 in 2005, 06 & 07 and took on #5 in 2007.

I don’t mind too much the idea of number 5 going to Heppell.

Otherwise give it a rest until the heir becomes apparent.

#3 and #11, and #24 in the “champions of Essendon” - and that’s not including a 150 gamer, and a 250 gamer.

I think you’re off base. Cast your mind back to the shitfight when Hird gave it to Stanton, compared to the uproar when A Lee got 32 or S Gumbleron got 3. No comparison. From the start of Sheedy’s tenure, it’s the most famous number. Only 4 comes close, and that’s had about twice as many occupants over the same timeframe.


#151

The hair is pretty apparent.


#152

#5.


#153

Are you forgetting the great man?


#154

Never ever


#155

Essendon site has Stewart and Clarke with 0 for numbers


#156

Clarke 4, Stewie 5 maybe?

Probably means that they rate Dylan very highly as well


#157

Umm no.

#159

You DID see Bomb Doe’s post, right?


#160

As I expected, they take notice of me and give Clarke #5.


#161

I don’t really see how/why Stewart needs a number change


#162

There is no logic in most of the posts in this thread
