Fremantle V Essendon

The Fremantle Dockers haven’t been able to win any of their ten AFL games of footy this season, yet they are favorite to win against the Essendon Bombers tonight.

Why is nobody tipping Essendon to defeat Fremantle, when the Dockers haven’t won a game yet?

Sure, Essendon have lost half their team to drug suspensions (hardly the players fault when the drugs were administered by the club, but that’s a whole other issue), but in every one of their games this season they have shown determination and played hard for two or three quarters. That was enough to get the win against Melbourne in round two, so I don’t see why an Essendon win should be ruled out against a team who hasn’t won any games themselves so far. Surely the Western Australia home ground ins’t that much of an advantage?

We will find out the answer tonight. Go Bombers!


Every week I publish my footy tips on a separate blog I call www.crazyfooty.tips
I’m not sure if I’ll continue that site past 2016, but my crazy footy tips for this week can be seen here www.crazyfooty.tips/afl/2016/home-away/round11-2016 


UPDATE; 10:10PM
Well it looks like everyone tipping Fremantle to win knew what they were talking about.
Essendon suffered an embarresing loss, scoring only 47 points to Freo’s 126.

Smarty pants Brad

Still from "That's Good for Footy" show, Brad Yeo gets 10 from 10 Essendon trivia questions correct.

I’ve just found this YouTube video of my 12 year old son on a football show, getting all ten trivia questions correct about our favorite AFL team, Essendon.

Brad is on for a couple of minutes from the 30min 33sec mark.  Behind him on the panel, keeping score, is Essendon star Dyson Heppell and Travis Cloke from Collingwood.

The show, That’s Good for Footy, was recorded the week prior to the Collingwood V Essendon ANZAC Day clash, it went to air on community station C31.
