Ripper game last night, great to see the Bombers back up and playing good footy. Shows me that the Hawks are just average at best.

thought the 4 goal margin flattered us, with a bit more poise bombers could have won by double

For me it was the intent not the score-line.

Not a surprising result given the muscle enhancing drugs they received. Bigger bodies don't recede during a year off.

That's why all performance enhancing drug use should attract a lifetime ban.

Where are the weight and muscle mass comparisons from before Dank and today.

Obviously there is a standard improvement which could be obtained from a club with a similar age profile to act as a benchmark.

Think there was more to it than the supplements issue. It seemed more about a whole club and its supporters coming back to the fold. The past is the past and it's naive to think they were the only ones at it.

Was it just me, or did Essendon go and win the premiership on the weekend??

 

The drug cheats must have really been on a high, given the level of celebrations, for beating what was a slow and tired looking Hawthorn.

 

Keeping a lid on it, is certainly not their style (now that their shredder has been sacked).

 

Interesting to see though, that there were a few familiar faces in attendance from the days of the drug scandal. As a club, why would you keep them around if you say you just want to move on???

Essentially because they still don't think they cheated I assume. Being a Hawks fan, it was tough to watch the over the top celebration of the win, from the players.....fans I get, as they have been through the ringer and stayed true to their club.

 

The players though, I don't get it still. People say we should feel sorry for them, but I don't understand why. They stood with the club that duped and injected them, didn't take deals etc etc and when they come back they are lauded as heros? Smells to me. Remember the outrage at the Olympics about Gatlin having a chance to win etc....slightly different, but at the end of the day the fans were still lauding convicted drug cheats as heros.

 

A very sensitive topic with Bombers supporters still.....but maybe they need to take a look in the mirror and think about who they should be cheering for.

Essendon fans are delusional at best.

 

I believe some are still out the front of Windy Hill, waiting for James Hird to drive in thru the gates ..... all is forgiven.

I expect the paparazzi to get a photo of Hird and Evans kissing and making up.
