Lets see if any of the footy shows tonight give credit to Essendon or they just talk about how rubbish West Coast are away from Perth.
Geelong were bad, no credit to the way Essendon, played
West Coast were bad, no credit to the way Essendon.played.
If we beat Richmond, Richmond were bad, they cannot win games .
It kind of sticks in their craw to say “Essendon were good” its a habit ingrained over 4 years or more.
David King seems the only one who gives credit and probably Wayne Carey too.
