St Essington's Day


#522

How is it dead? Until we win a final Essington continues each year.


#523

Well Crazy One, in my view this is the best and hardest team we have had since 2001.

Previous years since then, Tigers would have kicked away and won by over ten goals like they did earlier in the year. That was a very hard and tough game against a very good, if not the best team going around at present.

Bombers did not fold and there was much upside in the total performance with the best players being MCGrath, Parish, Francis all kids with much potential.

Essington if it ever existed is dead.


#524

‘Didn’t quite get there this year but we have a lot of potential and go into the next season full of confidence,’ is what Essington is all about!


#525

First season since 1933 where we haven’t beaten carlton, collingwood, hawthorn and, richmond.


#526

But we should be bullish about next year.


#527


#528

Farking depressing and ■■■■ all the miserable ■■■■■■ that liked your comment (and yes that includes me lol). Just once could you deliver some positive news?


#529

first wooden spoon in 80 years.

first time not beating hawks carlton, collingwood or richmond in 80 odd years.

woosha breaking all the records.


#530

Gee it’s so much more cheerful when it comes from you rather than Mendozaaaa.


#531

We can’t finish 18th.


#532

But we got beaten by the team that did finish 18th (just in case no-one posted this lately). Which is a kind of an Essington thing to do.

And Fark Carlton.


#533

There’s a distinct lack of ‘“If’s”’ in that sentence, but yes, this is what it’s all about.


#534

@Mendozaaaa is President of Essington


#535

On behalf of everyone on Blitz I’d just like to officially wish the entire Essendon supporter base, Woosha, X and the players are very Happy Essington Day.


#537

Today?

“It’s the most wonderful time, of the year”


#538

Also it’s St.Essingtons day, you heathen


#539

Let’s be honest, st essington’s day was the day we lost to Carlton.


#540

Actually it’s not today. We could still make it if geelong, port and north all lose and we make up 21% on Geelong. Easy!


#541

Can we call it St Wescosington Day too?

They’re soooo going to lose to Brisbane next week, and finish fourth.

For those interested in watching AFL finals this is probably a good thing, as them and Richmond winning two home games and meeting in the Grand Final is pretty much a worst-case scenario when it comes to a competitive finale.

Luckily, I don’t care.


#542

That’s an awful lot of words for someone who doesn’t care… (although I don’t care either)
