Etihad Stadium saw a crowd over 43,000 for Essendon’s win over Adelaide tonight, with most of them Bombers fans.
Amongst that group was Essendon’s own League of Legends Esports team, who had come out to watch the Bombers.
Triple M’s own Brian Taylor didn’t miss them on the Channel 7 coverage, picking them out with some trademark cheeky commentary when the camera panned over them in the last quarter.
Watch it here:
“They all look, ah, rather unique in their own way,” BT said.
“How can they all be unique BT?” Bruce McAvaney asked.
“Because they’re all different Bruce… computer type boffins," BT replied.
“There’s some real nerds in amongst them!”
The Esports team might have been just the inspiration the Dons needed as they came back from a 20 point three-quarter time margin to record a 14.15 (99) to 12.15 (87) win after a spirited comeback.
