Agreed.

They're playing exciting football, and they've unearthed a few good kids, and a few potential stars.

They haven't had an A grader on their list for 10 years. And now there's scope for a couple.

This game will be interesting. They'll definitely push us, and on our current form, they could win.
Straight to the tribunal. 2 week suspension.

The Essendon love fest all over the media is hilarious. Now Essendon supporters up in arms over a potential season postponement or shortening because it might ruin their run into the finals.

If ever we are going to smack a team by over 100 points this year, let it be this Saturday.

Can’t find the link to an article I saw yesterday by Ben Dixon. He used a word to describe essendrugs that I first heard used in 2017. Back then it had a different meaning. It was used to describe Richmond when we lost those few games by very close margins. It was used to ridicule us. That word was “Richmondy”. But this time it was used to describe how well essendrugs are playing by comparing them to us now. Flipped the meaning right around. ( but I won’t forget it was used to embarrass us)

Sad to see Neale Daniher in this condition.

How can there not be a cure for this neurological disease compared to others?

Unfortunately we really don't have a great deal of knowledge about the brain and the nervous system in comparison with the rest of the body.

MND is a hideous disease, but things like MS, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's, Guillain-Barre, and Epilepsy just to name a few, are no picnic and by and large only dealt with with symptom management that is hit and miss.

Basically the message is, have a heart attack, not a brain malfunction. ;)

Brave, Brave man is Neil and his family as well.
Really tragic and inspiring at the same time, (i did have the tissues out), pretty emotional segment.

Just watching it now. I think presenting himself as his condition degenerates makes it ‘really’ real Vs it happening behind closed doors. Very impressive and sad at the same time.

Close friends have lost parents to MND and CJD. Both horrible.

Watching a replay. Robbo got one thing right, they started to talk about Goodes and amongst other things he said "no one really cares what I think" just after mussing how he couldn't add to it but proceeded to anyway. He's a dill.

It wasn't easy to watch. Kept thinking that when Neil finally passes, I might avoid the media for a month.

yep. visual awareness. get in peoples living rooms to show exactly what happens. its admirable stuff, and devastating to watch.
we need to be confronted sometimes to get 'real'.
