AFL 2016.

So, we start off the 2016 season with this... http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-01-12/live-essendon-34-guilty & http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-01-12/guilty-court-bans-the-essendon-34-for-2016

Will this saga ever end? I think Essendon should just retire anybody associated with this debacle and move the fuck on. It's going to take years before they ever get back to being a respectable team.

That arrogant bastard Hird still denying any wrong doing, he should never be allowed to be involved with the sport again.

Half of those players don't even play the game anymore. Only 12 are still with the club (5 elsewhere).

They could have done what Cronulla did and accept a back dated 6 month suspension (which meant the players only missed out on a few games). But Essendon wanted to delay things as much as possible and it has reduced the damage.


Agreed. I used to admire Hird a lot, but now all that has disappeared. The great player he once was has been entirely tarnished by this debacle.

It's unfortunate for Essendon that they don't play Fremantle in Round 23 because they probably would've won that game.

Of this year? I'd like to say that Freo has a chance at the flag this year, but then again... I've said that for the past four years and look where that's gotten us. I truly doubt we'll get close to be honest and if we don't get it... then goodbye Ross Lyon.

I meant because Lyon would rest half the team.

RIP Ken Judge.

I wasn't a huge fan of his coaching with West Coast, but his commentary and discussion regarding the game as a whole was always entertaining to listen to.

I'm just stoked Richmond get to play Essendon twice.
Geelong are gonna be great again.
Fremantle lol.
Glad to see some quality footy from Melbourne and Carlton. Carlton looked much better than the Tigers for most of the game.

Yep. Never bloody ending. I put my tips in last week and was the only one in the group to put the Bulldogs ahead of Freo. I've tipped West Coast to win the minor and major premiership. Freo are going to regret extending Ross Lyon.

5 years is insanity. I personally think they should only give 3 year contracts to coaches. That is enough time to prove themselves and if they don't you won't be stuck with them for too long.

Exactly. Especially when there was still a year left on his contract. Now, he has done a lot of good stuff for Freo, but when you're in one grand final and finish a different year on top of the ladder and still don't walk home with the flag, well, there's something wrong.

Talk to me when Freo loses three consecutive elimination finals.
