We were lucky enough to have the chance to speak with our very own SuperHost Sean, who told us all about why he is a Bombers fan, and what it means to him!
Why are you a Essendon fan?
Pretty simple that one, I was born into the bombers. My Mum and Dad are both Essendon members so I really didn't have a choice.
What do you love most about your club?
The loyalty of the fans. We have had a real tough few years but our supporters have not wavered one bit. We always turn up in big numbers and get real loud.
What is your favourite piece of team gear and why?
My Signed Zacka Jumper. My favorite player, I’ve met him a few times now.
What are three things most people don’t know about Essendon fans and the club?
Essendon has an Esports team. We have the least amount of wooden spoons (last place finishes) out of the entire AFL and we have won 20 premierships 4 in the VFA 16 in the VFL/AFL
What's your favourite footy memory?
Oh that’s a tough one. Grand final wins of course but for me it was watching the footy with my late Pop. Everything I know about the game was gained from listening to his stories and facts.
What makes the Collingwood v Essendon rivalry so special?
WOW where do we begin! Well I’m of an age that I remember the 1990 Grand final and from that day on I have always hated the cold pies. It’s pretty simple really, we don’t like each other once that ball bounces. They is bloody everywhere, their mascot is a magpie one of the most annoying birds in the world… JOFFA, I could go on.
What makes you want to share your love of the game with others?
It’s the greatest game in the world and I want everyone who comes to Australia to enjoy it but enjoy it with a host that is knowledgeable and VERY Passionate.
