Last finals win:
2010: St Kilda
2014: Port Adel
2015: Fremantle, Hawthorn, NorthMelb
2017: Adelaide, Sydney, WestCoast, GWS, Geelong
2018: Melbourne, Richmond
Never won a final: Gold Coast
I believe this is more than good enough reason. This is actually incredible effort of sustained period of shiteness.
I can’t even fathom how lid off I will be once we jag a finals win.
Which shitbox side did Essendon beat in the 04 finals?
A long time ago, but wasn’t it Freo?
We should get our 2 picks back for the whole 2013 bullshit.
Our last finals win was over Melbourne, we won by 5 points in an elimination final.
Have a look at those names, cupido, haynes, bullen, matt allen and justin Murphy… we’ve had better teams since then amazing to think they played our last win
…like piggys we wallow in the shittedness.
I see it was 2003 I was thinking of against Freo.
That was a good win.
Then we got ■■■■■■ over by Port, as was the tradition at the time.
Not surprised you don’t know
You’re sounding a little gloomer.
No wonder I’ve become a very bitter AFL supporter (not Essendon), but seriously to have not seen or been a part of a finals win in 14 years is an absolute disgrace.
No wonder I’m struggling to watch finals games for other clubs these days!
Things better change soon.
It’s like discovering Daddy’s a cross-dresser, isn’t it?
The older I get…the more I feel that PREMIERSHIPS are the only thing that matters.
Every other award/record is a consolation prize for losers. Especially all the individual awards.
What makes me angry is if priority picks are doled out to the underperforming, getting them closer to a slingshot premiership, than a team that is battling away but just hovering mid-ladder (AFL think: “They’re fine, they are close enough to the 8 to give their fans hope, so they will keep watching the competition. Let’s go for another long lunch, marketing team!”).
I remember the Melb final in 2004, Was it Whelan who hits Hird off the ball and then Travis Johnston kicks a ripping goal?
