    At what point do you genuinely stop supporting Essendon at all? As in on field.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    It is a fascinating question, genuinely. Have asked a couple of my Essendon friends this.

    We should get absolutely smashed this week, no Thompson or Grima, back to the bad old days of Firrito playing as a tall defender.

    Thinking about it, this saga has just made me more smug in my behaviour towards Essendon supporters. I mean, Hird was never my favourite player. I didn't start supporting essendon because of him. James Hird isn't the Essendon Football Club to me. I was critical of the boys club atmosphere that took over the club post-Knights and remain bewildered it hasn't come under more stick during this saga. (From Hird to Ray Gunston, it seems like everyone who has been hired in the past 3-4 years at Essendon is either a past champion or someone with a clear relationship to someone already at the club. This surely played a huge part in the negligence that took place). I didn't think past legends were incapable of making mistakes and that the only way to success was through the legends. That this has come crashing down has just fed my ego. I treat Essendon supporters with even more contempt.

    Yeah tell me about it. Luke 'worst player on a senior list in the league' Delaney is going to get 15+ kicked on him this week.

    1. morgieb 133.11
    2. Jono 131.11
    3. benchmark00 131.9
    4. BoyBrumby 129.8
    5. alternative 128.11
    6. ajdude 127.7
    7. howardj 124.6
    8. vic_orthdox 117.7
    9. Riggins 112.4


    Jono snatches the #2 slot over Benchmark, but in effect they are both basically tied. Riggins needs to tip this week to avoid being axed, but he has stated he would like to resign from tipping anyway.

    Last two rounds:

    ajdude 8
    morgieb 5
    benchmark00 5
    Jono 5
    BoyBrumby 5
    alternative 5
    howardj 5

    vic_orthdox 4
    Riggins 4


    Brilliant round from ajdude, mediocre from the rest of us in a round with a few upsets.

    Jono 8
    alternative 8
    morgieb 7
    benchmark00 7
    BoyBrumby 7
    ajdude 7
    howardj 6
    vic_orthdox 5

    Riggins 4

    Not the most predictable round ever. Jack loses points for tipping a lot of upsets, most of which didn't come off.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Might have to give it a watch by the sounds of things. Ridiculous that a) the NRL footy show is still on TV and b) that channel 9 don't put the AFL on on GEM or Go or whatever at 9.30pm.

    The Bombers will have to sack the 4 involved, Little has to walk the plank and Sheeds can takeover next year to restore some credibility back to the club.

    So the ASADA report omitted James Hird's testimony about not being able to sleep at night because he couldn't stop thinking about Mark McVeigh and kept getting uncontrollable boners so he injected some stuff you are supposed to just take in tablet form?

    Is the 11:30am Hird presser a regular match presser or something else? Spikey tell me now.
