Too old, isn't that not obvious enough?

We are a young team with young players.

And this is why you're losing. He's got experience and skills you guys should kill for, not dismiss out-of-hand.

In all honesty, I'd rather develop our young HBFs. I rate Davis, he's a very good player but he's not what we need.

I reckon GWS would love him.

So Essendon starts the 2012 season with games against North, Port, and the Gold Coast ... then we play Carlton and Collingwood with only a four day break in between.

Thanks for being on a Wednesday, ANZAC Day. Hmpf.

Yeah I saw that 4-day break, that's insane.

We on the other hand, have a ridiculously easy draw.

If we can at least win those first three games, that might build some handy momentum leading into the four day break.

I see the AFL has erred strongly in favour of scheduling "blockbusters". Hope it blows up in their face. If a couple of teams pull a West Coast and come from nowhere to play sensationally and a couple of the "blockbuster" teams fail to fire, it'll be funny.

Let me save you guys the trouble.

- We have too many matches at the 'G'
- We have too few interstate games in the first half of the season
- We have too few interstate games in the second half of the season
- We have too many 7 day breaks
- We don't play enough matches against teams that finished above us last year

Haha, let's be fair, we totally have an easier draw than you do!

In fact, I see The Age reckons Collingwood's draw is the toughest and Adelaide's the easiest! 2012 AFL fixture | Full season draw

Don't get why the first round is split over two weeks, with Sydney vs GWS as a stand-alone one weekend and the remaining eight games the next weekend.

Just had a look at our draw. It starts off very winnable with GC and the Dogs but then we get this stretch that includes Hawthorn, Carlton, Geelong and Collingwood ...

Damn this thing needs some promotion.
