Richmond Tigers vs Essendon Bombers Preview

The Bombers returned to the firing line this week after a dismal performance against the Sydney Swans on the weekend.

I am continually astounded at the backlash they receive and it’s not because of the pathetic and soft brand of football they are playing.

It’s because punters and pundits continue to overrate this football side.

They are just not that good and the quicker people work this out the quicker they can wallow at the bottom of the ladder in peace.

One good quarter of football against the Hawks (who sit 13th by the way) saw expectations soar and it is hard to understand why.

I’m unsure who thought they were a chance against the 5th place Swans, but my advice is not to do the same against Richmond this weekend.

Keep those expectations low and at least then you may be surprised.

Probably not though.
