    Tips for Rising Star tonight fellas?

    I like Heppell (even with my intense hate for Essendon) but I think Shuey has been slightly better this season. Actually had B.O.G performances in wins.

    Not sure. Heppell had it sewn up six weeks ago but he probably dropped off while Shuey went from strength to strength. If they were the same age Shuey would walk it in but despite what the guys who vote say, I'm sure they take seasons in the system into account.

    Which is annoying. If you're eligible you're eligible. Age and experience should be irrelevant imo.

    Heppell has been solid and gets lots of possessions.

    I don't think he's had the impact on games though that Shuey has.

    Would make a joke about how you relied on Matthew Richardson to win games but he was ****ing **** anyway. Least our old blokes are good.

    Nah you're wrong.

    Especially since one of your old blokes was gun recruit Jonathan Hay.

    Edit: Actually Hay wasn't that old when you guys got him. 26 or so. Interesting.

    No Essendon players made the All-Australian squad of 40.

    Find that a bit surprising, yet nevertheless pleasurable.

    a lot of our top players had an annoying tendency to miss enough games to really prevent them from having a good season but not kill their season. watson missed 5-6 games, hocking 4, hurley the same, hooker was having a gun start and then did his hamstring twice etc. very annoying. hence why heppell is favourite for the B&F (although stanton should be it)

    Heppell just gave an awesome interview with Darcy. Called Betts and Garlett "slippery little suckers"

    Good on him for winning, but a bad result for my betting account.
