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!

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.
