Game Chat – Essendon v Collingwood

Written by Father Dougal on August 22 2021

Where and When:  4:40  at Adelaide Oval

What it means for the Bombers:  They will make finals if they win. They will probably make finals if they lose. It may be possible to lose so badly their percentage would plummet below the Eagles. After three was that match a few years ago v the Dogs where one of the commentators pointed out they needed a safeword, but that seems really, really, unlikely. 

What it means for the Pies: Little



Supercoach Watch: 

Bombers: Parish, Merrett, Ridley, Cox, Hind, Heppel, Jones

Pies: Grundy, Bianco, Crisp, De Goey, Sidebottom


Father Dougal’s Watch:  Parish, cause I need him to go big

Father Dougal’s Tip: Bombers by 20

  1. Its been a testing week-end for Dad. He says he hasn’t felt pressure like this since he took an after the siren kick for Essendon reserves to win the flag in 1932. I’m so glad he can now relax with his beloved bombers to play finals again.
    We are about to head to the cellar for a quiet tipple and to watch the game against pies. Our objective is six bottles of Grange, and a plan to sneak into SA next week-end.
    Btw…Dad missed the kick for goal in 1932.


    1. We got a way into SA….gonna get a 20 foot dinghy at Warnambool, and sneak all the way along the coast…reckon it will work !!
