Essendon's round 4 review

Short answer, how good is footy? The last four matches between the Swans and Bombers have been decided by ten points or less and this win for the Swans brings the aggregate wins for each side since the Swans moved north to 30-30 with one draw.

Essendon's Round 3 review

So I have noticed a trend of late on The Roar, that is people writing reviews or re-caps or their favourite team’s performance, such as the fine work by the Sports Bloke regarding Collingwood Magpies, or Jacob Walton’s work with the suddenly resurgent Adelaide Crows.

I predict two scenarios for Carlton as they head into round 7, the bombers will either win round 6 or round 7 but not both

These next two weeks could have dire consequences for David Teague and Carlton

Nah mate there is a lot of money in the suns they won’t let them fold without something going horrendously wrong.

If we're moving a team to Tassie, St Kilda are the obvious candidate

The AFL is still beholden to an era in which Melbourne was a very densely populated centre. But they haven’t grown as Melbourne has spread out. It’s actually one of the things I think the NRL has adapted well too as there are several rugby clubs in the further reaches of Sydney like penriff, west tigers, st George.

Not as broke as they used to be. The state is on the up and up.

Well simple instead of doing that why not set up a team in tassie without the history of saint kds

I dunno I don’t mind some of the stuff put forward by Jake Niall in the age. But you’re right the talking heads do appear uppity this season

Why are we bashing Carlton again?

I agree the Blues shouldn’t sack Teague, he’s a green shoot not responsible for the malaise that Carlton find themselves in. I think the blues just shanked the 2017 draft and they may end up benefiting from being poor this year as 2021 is shaping as midfielder heavy draft and the blues having a pick at the pointy end is good particularly if Cripps ends up going

Why are we bashing Carlton again?

Yeah fair. Coxy had a down game this week, I still think he’s pretty fair odds to take out the rising star but he needs to
Improve his abilities in the wet.

AFL Round 5 rookie report

Hazem el masri

The five signings the Broncos must make

I get what you mean mate, but the Bombers aren’t just another low ranking team, they’re my team. I’ve observed a pretty consistent output of content from other writers on this site regarding other sides and I think doing the round by round review gives you a framework upon which to build which when you’re starting out as a write is a good thing to have

Essendon Round 5 review

Thanks Jeff, I’m happy to keep doing this as it gives me a creative outlet.

Essendon Round 5 review

Thanks chief, I would say I am comparatively one eyed when viewing my beloved bombers, but I think it’s important to write not so much glowing haigiographies of last nights match but go in with clear eyes where you say what the bombers did well, which was very little on Saturday, and what they did poorly.

Essendon Round 5 review

Yeah you’re exactly right there. Particularly Cox and Reid I think are gonna struggle going into the mid season malaise.

Essendon Round 5 review

So the AFL elected to fine the pies 20 grand I didn’t think they had the spine.

Essendon Round 5 review

Given both players are injured id say that’s a fair whack.

Collingwood handed hefty fine for phone use

I think a lot depends on whether it’s raining or not. If it’s dry then I’m predicting Cox will be the ANZAC day medallist, if it’s wet then I’m predicting Zach Merrett

Anzac Day at the MCG: Who will rise first to become a premiership contender?

I’ve been surprised by Hookers return to form this year. He’s out of contract at the end of this year so he may re-sign but it will be on much lower money, I think Hurley is done because his injury is really bad and he’s already over thirty.

Anzac Day at the MCG: Who will rise first to become a premiership contender?

Mate Redman has been a very handy pick up. The only way he will go is if he requests a trade back home to south Australia.

Anzac Day at the MCG: Who will rise first to become a premiership contender?

I think there’s an interesting point in this article where because the Bombers and pies are at their nadir really they need to look at having a rolling fixture for ANZAC Day

Political content has a tendency to be much higher temperature in terms of rhetoric and the like. Sports can also do that, see Spruce moose’s article on Aboriginal commentators.

Essendon Round 5 review

Can confirm they do reject pieces but they never do so without merit.

Essendon Round 5 review

I don’t think you can argue that their development has been poor, look at. Weitering, and McKay for example, they didn’t so much make mistakes with the 2017 draft as that draft didn’t have the talent necessary to hold up.

Five talking points from the AFL Round 5

So your argument on the demons is fair haha. However, they’ve also had their own injury concerns and have gone the entire year to date without Weiderman and Brown both of whom are walk up starts in most forward lines.

Five talking points from the AFL Round 5

You can only beat the team that is in front of you, and they’ve done well to ignore the narrative that’s been developing around the Dees

The Demons are 5-0 - is this a drill?

Melbourne lost in their sixth match of that year too
