Season 2019 - St Kilda


#181

#182

Harvs got smarter after knocks to the head. Remember that time he threw himself into Mick Martyn’s knees then proceeded to kick a bunch of goals?


#183

I remember him accidentally kicking D Bewick in the head whilst attempting to kick C Mainwaring. I also remember him receiving the ‘Worst Haircut in the VFL’ award for about three years running but not the Martyn incident.


#184

Did he get smarter, or was the move to the backline designed to protect him more?

Bit like Vanda really


#185

At the opening bounce, too!

Then Heard did his knee, Long his ribs, Salmon his groin, and Sheeds finally got the rule change to a larger bench.

Best. Loss. Ever.


#186

Sorry about the diversion, but for the kidz:


#187

Windsock game


#188

Think we were both undefeated to that stage too. We feel in massive whole after that iirc.


#189

Just finished my ladder for the year. Wooden spoon coming up for the 'Aints. Have em winning a solitary game only. What did Carlisle say again? :grin:


#190

I actually bought that game on video DJR. The greatest game we ever lost.

Had everything, including a Somerville mark of the year contender, Madden goal of the year contender.


#191

Just a handful of Essendon fans will be “talking about that mark in one hundred years”. Sadly lost to history otherwise.

About the same number of people will remember the post-siren kerfuffle (when a fan leant over the fence to headlock the Weagle out of the fight).

If only they had 50+ FPS cameras back then, so we could see how Cransberg kicked that goal at the end.

I used to feel sorry for Hamilton tagging Peter Matera… but nah, fark him and his AFL gravy train.


#192

Apparently Roberton is expected to announce his retirement. Terrible. But health comes first.


#193

Yep, tragic for the poor guy.
I almost said ‘heart goes out to him’…then realised how inappropriate that would be.


#194

At least you didn’t say, he hasn’t got the ticker for it.


#195

I shouldn’t be laughing yet here I am


#196

Nope just sitting out the year, not retiring.


#197

Ahahaha!

Desperate times call for desperate measures

Roberton they probably just cover within the clubs squad but with Carlisle also cooked, need a kpd


#198

SOMERVILLE!


#199

That Weagle was Don Pyke.


#200

So does all of this mean we can pencil in Round 2 as a win ?

Or will Essington turn up on the 30th of March at AFL Stadium?
