Round 13 – Essendon v Greater Western Sydney: Essendon won

Essendon v The Greater Skoda Western Sydney Mountain Sharks


We won!!! Yes I know you won’t read about it in the papers, but I reckon that the Dons won on Sunday afternoon.


I worked it out like this. Hawthorn towelled us up by about twenty goals last weekend. A few weeks before that GSWSMS beat Hawthorn by five or six goals, so if the Dons were beaten by less than twenty five goals, then it’s a win.


And not only were we playing this heavily subsidised Sydney team, we were playing the umpires as well, yes four of them!!


I wasn’t at the game on Sunday, I much prefer to stay home and listen to the ABC, having no love for Emptyhead Stadium. The commentators who are scrupulously fair in their commentary, exploded with indignation on some of the decisions made against the Dons especially in the second half. These decisions occurred at really critical times of the game and I reckon had a crucial effect on the result.


So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it, The Dons won.


Congrats to the whole team and the coaching staff, another win is just around the corner.
