    Between Season & Watching the Old Games

    Its hot. The place is closed up. TV is crap except for cricket. So what does one do if at a loose end.

    Watch old games thats what!!!

    Round 19, 2005, Essendon v Swans at Telstra Dome.

    Observations.

    . Barry Hall is such an intimidating and BIG man. He can play just a bit too. Very intelligent player, no matter the last year; he was very good for us.
    . MickyO was a treasure. If you need reminding of what he could do, have a look at this game.
    . Luke Ablett was a fairly powerful player, and is much better than I think he considered himself to be. Hard worker.
    . We were lucky to have Monty and Schneider around at the time. They made some damn fine decisions as born out in the finals and Granny.
    . The 2005 team was good. Very Very good. Its a shame a lot of the AFL world thought they fell over the line. They didn't. they were a seriously good team.

    . We are doubly lucky that Essendon didn't rate Ted, and Roosy did. He has just got better and better. Still looks the same, dammmitttt.

    Its a very good game that one. It also points out that all teams have good years, very good years, fantastic years, and crap ones. We have been on a roll for some ten years now all borne on good management and very good luck.

    Can remember Micky O's banana in that game. It was never easy to beat Essendon in Melbourne.

    I normally love watching old games but I don't think I've seen a single Swans highlight since the GF debacle. It's taking some time to recover from.
