    Re: Ekers

    Would we count Mumford , apparently going around again.
    His job is just to run at the other ruckman or anyone that gets in the way.

    Far out Ledge, gave me a heart attack. I thought I'd clicked on the player movement thread and you were suggesting we get Mumford.

    Bahaha only if we want someone bouncing off the ropes into people.

    And to get another year reportedly in the Age - glorious work Mitch Brown, well played - my first thoughts when I saw the news he was to get another year was thats for the Eker-file

    Re: Ekers

    Some are destined to rise and peak
    Others are earmarked to flat line and eke
    They're journeymen workhorses, they play without flair
    They're solid, they're stolid, they don't go the lair

    The eker is called on to plug up a hole
    He's a fill in, a back up, a roll of the dice
    But when called on to front up
    He's there in a trice.

    He's ready to go and give it his all
    He'll run through a brick wall to get his hands on the ball
    Not blessed with talent or blistering pace
    Life played in the shadows is his unhappy fate

    But where would we be if there were no ekers?
    Life would be poorer, life would be bleaker
    And we'd forego the pleasure of this thread we call Ekers.

    Hard to get a rhyme for Eker/s.

    Re: Ekers

    A sad day with elite eker Jacob Townsend delisted by the bombers.

    60 games across 9 seasons with 3 clubs is some elite ekeing. To also eke out a flag in that time is something to behold.

    If he can manage a 4th club he would have to be in hall of fame territory.

    He won the Liston medal in the VFL too I think.

    An Eker of the highest order.

    Keeps his job for building a list that hasnít won a final for 16 years.

    Congratulations to the bombers for keeping him in the job. You are doing a very good service to the other 17 clubs by keeping him.

    I believe he first came to the bombers in 2001 in some form.
    I would love to make it 19 years if possible.

    Phillips remains without a deal at the Bombers for next season and has been identified by the Demons as a potential back-up for skipper Max Gawn.

    https://www.afl.com.au/news/523729/u...ur-club-player



    A move to the Demons would make Phillips the first player to play for four clubs since Ben Hudson (Adelaide, Western Bulldogs, Brisbane and Collingwood) retired in 2013.

    TRADE TRACKER All the deals as they drop

    Phillips, 29, played 14 games for Greater Western Sydney from 2012-2015 before moving to Carlton for a four-year stint that netted 27 matches.

    Last October he was the first player to be traded between the Blues and Bombers for 16 years and played five games for the Bombers behind Sam Draper and Tom Bellchambers this season.
    Phillips has signed a one year extension with the Dons - great news for an eke-ing legend

    46 games in 8 years and another to come , fair effort.

    Notice he has never played in a side that’s up and about though.
    An eker in the extreme as he travelled from one bad club to another to continue his career.

    Not just one bad club after another, but in his last move he was able to drag his new club below his previous bad club on the ladder.

    Funny how we rate other teams lists, Ling Jong only three more games across same amount of seasons.

    Loses points for being a 1 club player and injuries being the primary reason for his low games tally. He's in the conversation though.
