Good on him. Whilst comparing disparate populations can be a disingenuous talking point it is not here, indigenous Australian women actually form a third of prisoners in New South Wales making them the single largest over represented population

Buddy calls out criminalisation of Indigenous Australians

Someone above made the point that it is not the buddy deal but the tippet deal that was a mistake by the swans, I’m inclined to agree with them

I was of the mindset that historic deals deserve historic results. It may seem harsh, and to a certain extent it is harsh, but you bring players in because they’ll bring you closer to the promised land. Buddy was brought in to take the swans from fourth to winners and he didn’t do that

Or papley but yes you’re right with the injuries that Fantasia has suffered make him an unappetising option

I mean hell they should go after mosquito

Lol at question two, get to 16 years without winning a final and then see how you feel, or twelve years without making the finals series at all like Melbourne and Richmond.

I think power will take another shot at Fantasia at the trade table. Nathan Bassett was a coach of Fantasia’s in his Norwood days, so I think they’ll throw up someone like a Sam Powell pepper as a straight swap. If I was doddoro I’d take that deal tbh, essendon have ALOT of depth at the small forward position with Irving mosquito, AMT, Devon Smith and Darcy Parrish all floating through.

Apparently to put bums on seats. I would argue this is revisionist, a players sole responsibility is to win, the bums on seats will follow.

Seriously look at the stats, he dominates essendon, the only game that I can argue we broke even with him is the 2018 match where Hurley played what I think is his best game

Haha yes expect a flag every year mate, without a flag that year is a failing grade.

My argument is iron clad. If you get the largest deal in league history you have to bring home the proverbial bacon. Franklin was on a decade long deal that has yet to be matched. Ipsofacto his deal is a failure.

Yes I know, I’m too used to twitter.

Ok then write your own piece, rather than snidely commenting.

Actually all things considered it is as black and white as that. Sports is a results driven industry, and the results for the single largest and longest contract signed in the history of Australian rules football. You better bring home the proverbial bacon.

Yes I understand the nature of proper nouns and possessive apostrophes. My iPhone on the other hand does not.

I think so much is gonna depends on the new cba organised by the players, because 1.1 mill is a pretty big chunk of the cap already but take that into consideration with a down year economically speaking it might affect the nature of the deal he ends up signing.

Why Essendon need Giant Jeremy Cameron: A history of tall forward failures

I can confirm this as an essendon supporter to, be most certainly enjoys playing against the bombers

Difference is Barry hall won a flag, and tony lockett holds the record for number of goals kicked.

Buddy Franklin's time at the Swans has been a failure

Actually, my argument as it pertains to papley is more his last year has been career defining where buddy could not get on the park. Papley did a good job playing tall and small as a lead up forward and a crumbing forward

The fluoride in the water gives me mind control mwhahahahaha

Buddy Franklin's time at the Swans has been a failure

Once again you’re not addressing the crux of the piece which is John longmires inept coaching. He practically had the premiership wrapped up twice and choked twice.

Buddy Franklin's time at the Swans has been a failure

He was reportedly quiet close with dev smith and Dylan Shiel so I think that’ll be counting in their favour, but by that logic Carlton would be a shoe in with all the giants cast offs they have haha

Why Essendon need Giant Jeremy Cameron: A history of tall forward failures

Giants have less cap room than the bombers and they still have to resign williams and finlayson I think the giants will be losing Cameron regardless but will essendon put the chips up
