Fremantle requested Essendon since it’s our 25th anniversary and our first ever home game was against them, but for some reason the AFL have given us Norfs.

 Would that mean the Mighty Eagles play their last game at home ? If that's the case who cares , get the long trips done early.

Mon, 2018-10-29 11:08

We have an agreement with Freo to alternate the round 1 home fixture and we got to open the stadium this year when it was our turn so fair’s fair.

 
Will be interesting to see if the AFL send Collingwood over here in round 2 so they can watch us unfurl the premiership flag. They’ve given Collingwood the home game round 1 so it’s a possibility and will ensure we get 60k through the gates.

 Yeah he seemed like a good dude,  i liked him at Melbourne but made no impact at Freo.

 

I haven't heard any details other than it was a car accident. 

 

Sad,  32 and i assume still fit had a lot of living left to do!

Tortured soul, couldn’t make it Freo due to his inner demons, no pun intended,  could well be in a better place just now. RIP.

You blokes crack me up. You want us to crucify Liam Ryan for a move on notice yet Colin Sylvia was a "tortured soul" and a "good dude" for assaulting, stalking and threatening multiple women and threatening to kill a witness to one such assault.

Someone play me the Chaser's Eulogy song. In your own words boys, call it out... in life and in death.

 By the way ChrisG, 

 

Such a typical Eagles supporter comment...

 

Eagles "the hard done by club" should be the motto...

 

So fucking biased and blind,  so concerned about what you should get or should do instead of being grateful for what u have. 

 

Another way you could look at it is,  ok so round 1 we travel and play a bottom 4 team, next week we should win at home so we'll be 2 - 0 to start.  

 

Just gone a month and the celebrations are turning into a whinge already. 

 

Poor form mate

Wed, 2018-10-31 09:33

 I believe it's more to do with the fact they've scheduled the premiers against a bottom side in round 1, that's what I'm disappointed about. We've often opened our season at the GABBA anyway. I would prefer to see the grand finalists up against each other as season opener personally.

Consistency is key and you Mob sure are very consistent. 

 

Who gives a fuck who u play in rd 1,10,20 or otherwise. 

 

There are idiosyncrasy each year with the draw.  

 

Some get it easy some get it tougher.

 

You are a fool if you don't understand the main priority is bringing in the cash for the afl machine.

 Brisbane to beat quite a few sides next year i'd say, Hawthorn are their bunnies now so hopefully we only play them once!!

 

Big loss for GC having Jarrod Lyon leave, he was there no.1 stat man in most of the pros, good pick up for Brissi....

 

Turning out to be quite handy for Brissi having a dud team no one wants to play for down the rd, anyone that enjoys QLD just jumps ship.....

 

GC are in some strife now i'd say!!

 Also Andy and Frost,

 

Pats on the backs to you guys, i know a lot of people call WC supporters whingers but you guys have really raised the bar and are leading by example...

 

No Chris - The Eagles didnt refuse my membership, I'm fortunately a Hawk and although one of my sons may become an Eagle the other shall be a Hawk....

 

I just dont like whinge, and whinge my friend is a huge part of being an Eagles supporter....

 

Fancy booing Chris Judd, a bloke that helped your club win a flag and gave so much...

 

BUt of course they did....

 

Did the Hawks Boo Hodge or Mitchell, shit no i'd say they would have applauded them when they did something special for their new club.....

 

Oh no not the Eagles, lets wait and see what reception Lycette gets on good friday.....

 

Give me a wild stab in the dark mate, you tell me how it will pan out for the premiership ruckman when he meets up with a team he helped win a flag.......

Don't believe we've booed

Thu, 2018-11-01 13:12

Don't believe we've booed Scooter or Ebert after they left to go home and can't see Lycett getting any attention either and would be dissapointed if he did because he effectively left by mutal agreement to go home after helping us win a flag.

Judd was a different situation in a different time (before mass player movements and FA) and still stands as my favourite Eagle of all time just, just behind Matera of the Peter variety.

The biggest whinger in

Thu, 2018-11-01 17:40

The biggest whinger in VFL/AFL history is at it again:

"HAWTHORN president Jeff Kennett has offered his take on the club's 2019 fixture, saying it "does not entirely respect" the Hawks' contributions or success.

However, we feel the 2019 fixture does not entirely respect our great club, what it has done for the AFL and our success over the last 11 years…"

Where's the Wiggles? We need to wake up Jeff. He's fallen asleep whilst watching the History channel.

However,  he's the president giving a bias point of view. 

Your a fool if you don't get his rhetoric...

 Yep just cast aside all the other sides and let the pompus Hawks dictate what they want. I can guarantee they've made a healthy profit along the way mate so it's not all about "giving" there's also been plenty of "taking". 

In my opinion it was Mick Malthouse and the Eagles that brought genuine athleticism to the comp and was the birth of the modern game, Horethorn just jumped on the bandwagon.

And the last of my rant Sunday arvo fixtures Hmmmm Eagles had a fair whack of them through the year, but we all know how that turned out

 No it was Warrick that bought general athelticism to our game....

 

Overall i'm happy with our draw, from a viewers perspective i would have liked to see us play Sydney twice....

 

Saw a good mate at Golf yesty, he's an Eagles member and i said what do you think of the Eagles draw?

 

He said "the Eagles got screwed!!" ( typical ), I said "how so?" He said "we play 4 top sides in the first 5 rnds" I said what do you expect you are the reigning premiers" then i thought for a moment and said "hang on a minute mate, you play Brisbane 15th, GWS 7th, Collingwood 3rd, Freo 14th and then Pt Adel 10th..... He said "O"

 

But yeah.... Eagles "the hard done by club"

Did you make your way up to the Simmo's bar for a scoop after the 18th?

There's always been athletic, naturally talented players in our game and I'd take a Polly Farmer over a Capper everyday of the week. The 90's saw the emergence of the professional footballer and whilst West Coast were early adopters of a whole of club approach there were guys like Terry Wallace who were already ahead of the curve and did the extra work in their own time.

Not a fan of Dunsborough!

 

I was kidding about Capper but he was a classic.....

 

The modern footballer came about when the game changed, plus when teams realised a bit of gear in a water bottle helps people run longer and harder i guess they realised that so does a pre season and additional aerobic training....
