2017 Rd 4 @ SkyBus Stadium: Port Melbourne 12.17 (89) d Essendon 8.14 (62)


Port Melbourne’s (7th, 8-6) up-and-down season continued with a 27-point defeat of Coburg in Round 16 before a bye. / A 26-point loss to Collingwood two weeks ago was the fourth in a row for Essendon (8th, 7-7).


Where does the unpredictable Borough fit in the finals picture? Port Melbourne hasn’t won or lost more than two consecutive games since Round 7, defeating Williamstown in that time but also losing to North Melbourne and Sandringham. Such rollercoaster form has it on the precipice if this match is dropped.


Essendon’s ability to win the ball at stoppages hasn’t translated to wins in the last month. The Bombers are the VFL’s second-ranked team for contested possessions and clearances per game but are ranked only 10th for goals scored per inside-50 (the Borough ranks eighth).


Massive game

Wonder what’s up with big Jimmy!

I asked a question in the AFL team thread about what you think they’ll do with the emergency considering the timing of the games. :slight_smile:

P.S. hope you’re feeling better


I did wonder … but didn’t ask. Thanks DJR - hope you’re feeling better…& well enough on Sat to give us a running commentary!


Sorry Dave, but I was too busy organising my seat at the Port Melbourne Presidents Lunch.

And where is my invite?

That’s a good question.
And one I cannot answer.

Blooody toffs got no answer for anything.

Stick with us plebs, @Hoffy!

Yep, I’ll pleb it, as usual.

If you stand under one of the windows Dave, I may deign to throw you a chicken bone.

Old school Port Melbourne



I think we had this exact same clash scenario a couple years ago (Dawks at the G, Port at Port) and I made the extremely bad decision of going to the MCG.

We’re gonna win both games this time. You’ll have to tune into Radio 3PC instead.
