Dumb play cost us goals. Only thing that kept the game close.

Dimma mentioned goals against in the presser. Now that mid and forward is humming nicely, this is what gets fixed next.

Yep, my Footy FOXTEL (ch504 or UHD 508 occasionally is superb) or 7HD (ch 207) are both high quality pictures, clear as a bell and very crisp sharpness.
I don’t get ch 207 on Foxtel. If I want to watch 7HD I have to switch the input over to TV and watch that. The 7HD picture is clearly inferior to Foxtel HD picture.

Just about to watch the replay, what a nasty vicious Cat playing with the Rat type game, cruised out to a 4 goal lead, let them think they were back in it a few times, then as every Bomber supporter started typing some sought of dribble , no doubt with the words “ win” “dynasty over” “thanks for Truck” set to hit there social media accounts , we yanked the cheese and smashed em with a hammer .......nice
Pretty much what I said to my Bummers mate after the game; like a cat playing with an injured mouse! Notwithstanding I didn’t think we played that well and I thought we were in real strife when they hit the front. But he doesn’t need to know that!

He just whinged about the umpires ha ha ha

I like Harrison and Cox,
Perkins is good too but Essendon are miles off winning a flag.
There are a lot of holes to fill

Our defence looks a bit off
Houli is really struggling, BigV isn't the same BigV, Grimey was good last night, Broad has been the best of the back 6 this year

For those at the ground - what was your take on the half time entertainment?
Morning Tiger fans,
The entertainment was ok L2, it was limited in preparation and also by execution due to the covid rules. Nothing that will be etched into my mind as good or bad.
The game, Ess set up really well behind the ball which is why there is some consternation regarding our defence. Our defence played really well, they were under the pump 50% of the time each quarter. The bombers locked that ball in with efficiency and discipline every single time. Often we were forced to kick down the line because that extra 30 meters to an out number is better than an out number within one kick to goal. On the occasion we kicked into the centre we were under the pump in the same manner as the out number down the line.
Our forward line struggled because of the above, the bombers were disciplined in flooding the half forward and often or always outnumbered us going forward, until the last 15 min that is.
Start of the last we had Chol off and I'm pretty sure Grimes off (correct me if I'm wrong) the ground and it showed. They got the 4 in 10 min. We couldn't get our mids to touch the pill. Backline did really well and noticed Broad stood up. Enter Chol enter our mids, the right boys started to get the ball in hand. We never looked back.
One noticeable aspect for mine was how we ran over the top of the ground at the end, our pressure rating felt like it went through the roof and we rolled them. They were spent chasing us. We finally got space which the had not afford us all night.
Prestia was moving well after the game, he was on the ground and appeared without niggle. Not sure what the official line is.
Shai was gold, when he got involved.
CJ is starting to understand he is a big kid. Played well.
Chol, stepped up and accepted the responsibility. Great to see.
Balta, what an athlete. Caught out of position a few times but mostly caused by turn overs. The back six are getting their mojo back dont worry about that. The bombers were no slouches with ball movement, believe it or not they out richonded us a few times.
Prestia is a rolls Royce. His hands are sublime.
Aarts was everywhere, frustrating at times but his effort cannot be questioned and he hits the ball hard.
Pickett took the north wing (and ruck) and covered so much ground, we are lucky to have him, im not sure another player on our list wants to be put in that spot. Their ruck played really well too.
BOG - not sure of the stats apart from the ess kid who got it, merett, dusty, their ruck and Bolton were noticeable.
It was a solid game in slippery conditions and a worthy celebration of the Sir Doug Nicholls round.

Well ordinary game is a step up from terrible. You're view is progressing. Again you said he butchered the ball alot. Fact is he didn't at 76% efficiency. Rating if you subscribe to that was 12th for the Tigers by SC score. I don't generally. I didn't see him fumble a lot, will check again when I watch the replay. Have been a critic of Pickett at times, particularly around his disposal, but last night he made some really good decisions under the pump imo of course.
We have to remember that Pickett is getting mostly touches under pressure and that not many can actually get to so many contest's.

When did Zaharakis leave the field? That would have left Essendon with only 23 players. This could have contributed to them running out of puff in the last 12 minutes of the game when we slammed on 7 goals.

This is not taking anything away from the mighty Tigers, particularly the fight back after being headed. This was a great win.
Zaharakis had no influence on the game even when he was on the ground.

The Brighton of the Bellarine Peninsula?
Geeez! Winch might just be a tad closer to Colac than the Bellarine Peninsula. Closest thing ever to a wave out at Winch would've come from big Bolt Donahue easing into a bath.

Sunday footy show chose to feature 2 umpiring decisions that went in our favour. Where have they been for 10 weeks?
Sunday Footy Show is a circus with a full list of clowns.
It must pay well for anyone with some credibility to appear with all the resident clowns.
