    As individuals they can be perfectly fine, but it's when you get them together that they activate into something else. And if there are more of them in a group than a combination of anything else it just gets horrible.

    Ugly losers, even uglier winners.

    And injured players. Every injured Bombres players is worth two of every other team's.

    Something about those colours.

    Also, how are the Bombers still pc? They wreak nothing but death and destruction.

    I'm cancelling them xD

    Actually if we were called the Bombers we would have been cancelled by now and called the Hobson Bay Float Planes or the like.

    Your image matches mine, Cooney with the ball bursting out of the middle, turns on the after burners and leaves everyone in his wake and there's Hall on the move to just the place where Cooney expects him to. There's a dichotomy between Essendon the club and the supporters. It's the club I dislike, keeping North and Footscray out of the VFL to retain recruiting areas, the smug "war chest" days, trying to recruit Hawkins, McPherson et alia when the club was on its knees in 1989, Sheedy's "sh.t club" jibe, the industrial level dope cheating and, to be fair to it, a tinge of jealousy at its Premierships haul. The supporters, en masse, are no worse than others, they don't worry me, [in my best Edna Everidge] "why, some of my best friends..."

    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Adam right before our 2016 Elimination Final against Wet Toast. He was doing some commentary for Krock and some corporate gigs and quarter and half time. I spoke with him for about 20 minutes, and he had a kick-to-kick with my son. The first question he asked of me was "How do you think we will go tonight?" I gave him a quizzical look as he was playing for Essendrug at the time. He saw it and said that he "would always be a Bulldog at heart". I asked him about the comments in the media he was making at the time, its all for show baby (he added).
    I still think his blood runs red/white/blue ... everything we see in the media is a ruse.

    I read that Coons say he hopes doggies pick his son in his draft or words to that effect.

    Yeah Nah I've spoken to Brian Lake and those two really are sour on the dogs.

    Funny story, Coons built a house next door to me. Never moved in, sold it for a loss and now it's worth three times what he paid for it.

    How were you able to talk him down and is your SMSF still tax exempt ?
