It is now 19,633 days since an Essendon team coached by a man NOT named Kevin Sheedy won a final.

just saying. 6,500 is nothing.

And if they miss finals this year, they will crack the 20,000 days barrier. That is warp speed.

Come in 7000, you can do it.

I wonder what the record numbers are for no final wins. Has this been posted previously?
St Kilda had two consecutive gaps between finals wins of 9,485 days and 9,499 days.
They won what is now called a Preliminary Final in 1913 played on September 20 (incredibly, this was in some ways a Grand Final - had their opponents, Fitzroy, won it, they would have won the flag then and there).
Their next win in a final was in the 1939 First Semi Final (over Richmond) played on September 9.
Their next win in a final after that was in the 1965 First Semi Final (over Collingwood - by one point) played on September 11.
I don't know if they are records.

Footscray, Hawthorn and North Melbourne all entered the VFL in 1925 and won their first finals on September 5, 1953, August 31, 1957 and September 16, 1950 respectively - the first two of which represent longer win-less finals runs.

The Dons failure will become old enough to vote and drive! Congratulations young fella!
Was just thinking about this. The druggies picks in the upcoming draft will possibly have in their lifetime the following:
- completed their VCE
- got their license
- possibly voted in both the last federal election and may vote in the upcoming Vic state election
- witness Australia qualify for 5 World Cups

But not seen any druggies finals victories :eek:

They would be ecstatic to see dudoro pick their names out

Prospective draftees should be telling the Dud “look, I’ve had nothing to do with Richmond, nothing! Never even been to Richmond station. So you don’t want me.”

No doubt in the 2023 pre season though one of the so-called experts will say something like, "I'm bullish on the Bombers this year, 2022 was the year they had to have and they are primed for the top four this year".

Playing against a potential finals side, rising star.
Playing against a potential spoon side, dud delist.
Kid obviously rises to the challenge n needs genuine opposition to elevate his output in games.
