2008 Essendon Bombers Team

The 2008 preseason gave Bombers fans hope as the team took wins in the first two matches. They were eventually defeated by the St Kilda Saints, but it was a strong start nonetheless. Unfortunately, the good fortune didn’t carry over the home and away season as the Essendon Bombers struggled right from the start, winning just two of their first 11 matches. Toward mid season, things started to look up for the team, but as the team progressively thinned out due to injuries – at one point sporting just 24 fit players – the team’s record was ruined. In true Bomber’s spirit, they wouldn’t admit defeat and crushed their last four opponents to finish the season at number 12.
