Just hope they don't pull any cock suckery in their desperation and injure someone, they think they have a sniff at finals still

Lol @ cock suckery
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

this is the best thing for our club leading into september, because dead rubbers like GC and dogs doesnt give us a good lead in to finals.

a 1 point win will suffice so we can hear how close they are all summer by the likes of blobbo and king

Not sure about your theory on dead rubbers. We played Fremantle and St Kilda in the last 2 games of 2017 and history will show it didn't do us any harm


They weren't dead rubbers though, we were playing for top 4
Freo were coming off a belting from Sydney and started off hot.

St.Kilda had the slimmest of chances to make the finals as the game started(Essendon finished it at around qtr time from memory).

Perfect tune up to be honest. A little bit of feeling in the game..... but not really!

Bomber fans seem to be hoping that we'll go into self-preservation mode and let them win. Deluded as ever :nope.

Should read the latest posts now we're going to be missing some of our stars. Apparently Astbury is a spud and not a loss :stupid.

Bombers at the G this year - 1 win, 6 losses.
Tigers at the G this year - 12 wins, 0 losses.
Even without those players, I’ll be on the Tigers, thanks.

We're everybody else's Grand Final these days :yep.


Worsfold is excited by the challenge of facing the in-form Tigers as his side fights to keep the season alive, with victory the only option in the club’s two remaining home and away games.

“I must admit, I look forward to every game and I like the challenge every week,” Worsfold said.

“But when you’re playing the team that are the reigning premiers and have followed on with that brilliant season last year with another great season, it really opens up for us a chance to have a look at where we sit against a top-line team and take our best footy out there against them.”

How's everybody feeling about this game now ??

Times are good when you can start resting players because the result is irrelevant.

I still want to win with the B team though  ...like the time we beat them in wangaratta a few years ago.

We'll lose.

They'll start super hot, we'll peg it back mostly but they'll be slightly on top for most of the game and then kick away in the third. The fourth will be a boring 3 or 4 goal affair.

THEN we'll have to endure a summer long 'Essendon will be 2019 premiers' singsong from all and sundry.

Then they'll win 3 of the first 9 next season and they'll be cooked and it'll be just as sweet as it was this year  :rollin

I don’t want to lose and let other teams think that the MCG is no longer a fortress for us. Especially on the eve of the finals.
