I'm still trying to come to terms that Dan is a Bombers supporter.

Chairman Dan preaching inclusion by applying exclusion.

Andrew Thorburn interview on SEN was diabolical. His answer to the fact that he had never been a CEO at a sporting organisation was that he will surround himself with mentors. Like WTF - club is on its knees and you appoint someone who is proudly showing his L plates around?!?

And then hearing what his plans for getting Essendon back on track were extremely basic - I honestly don't think it warrants the exorbinate pay. Essendon for once were saved by religion and avoided having an utter amateur at the helm. They just have to find a way to get rid of the other amateurs on the board.

Odd that the "minorities" feelings are paramount these days. They go on about how proud they are of themselves but push back when any comments or gestures are made contrary to their stances. Meanwhile the "mainstream" are easy targets, and usually because it's water off a duck's back to them, sticks and stones, etc, but when it affects people's legal rights and livelihoods, you have to stop and think, where is the fairness, which ironically, the minorities scream the loudest when it affects them!

Andrews was banging on about being a practising left footer I see. Guess he mustn’t agree with abortion or homosexuality either or even that women are fit to be priests. Maybe he should remove himself from office too

We can only hope. He'll get in next election though - two reasons - weak opposition and Vics often have short term memory loss.

check the date....i posted just after Dunkley announced that Brisbane was his preferred choice.


my observations.....
  • JHF & Port manufactured this idea that he was damaged goods forcing NM's hand
  • Dawson, Rankine, Rioli and JHF coming 'home' will discourage Vic teams from drafting top end interstate talent

North we’re the worst run club. Essendon no we’re the worst run club, St Kilda (leaning back dragging on a durrie looks around disdainfully) “hold my ******* beer…”

Who can keep up with all this foottee swap shite except Rowey, Cornsey and K.Geeee?

Is it designed by the billionaire AFL CEO to keep drip-feeding so-called “news” during the off-season?

AFL umpires are cheats. Has this guy Michael Pell any connections to Juventus. Maybe a Grosso relation.
