    Amidst the talk of Kerr retiring, I stumbled across a rumour.
    I have no idea how accurate it is, only reporting the rumour as I heard it.

    Basically, Kerr isn't sure about his body and wants to play on, however Worsfold doesn't want Kerr to play on. Mid season, as we were losing games we should have won, apparently Kerr was leading a revolt against the game plan, and some of the younger players sided with Kerr. As a result, Woosh in no uncertain terms told Kerr where to go and he spent the rest of the season in the WAFL. Other players missed games, officially, due to injury but, according to the rumour, as punishment for their dissent.

    Take with a grain of salt, but based on Kerr's agent's statement compared to what Woosh said on 7 news last night, maybe...

    Thoughts?

    There is definitely a stench coming out of WCE headquarters at the moment.

    I don't see why, there is a rumour button for a reason.

    I'm not sure, I did hear Shuey's name, but like I said, could be a complete load of crap. I'm just starting to believe it a bit more each time I think about it.

    It wouldn't surprise me given the way the team fell away so badly at the end of the year if there is a fair amount of dissent within the club.

    I personally think that Worsfold's time is up & the club needs to bring in someone fresh.

    Various neutrals have said they think Woosha needs to go and frankly, I agree. If we thought Essendon were being stubborn, we need to look closer to home.

    If all these rumors of player revolts and arguments behind the scenes are true then I think I will change my mind about Woosh, and possibly even Kerr. This should never happen at a professional level.

    Maybe I'm missing it on this board but there's a rumour around Melbourne that Scott Selwood is coming back to Victoria and getting traded to the Demons for pick 2. Thoughts?

    Explains why Wilson was dropped after setting up a number of plays through the corridor. Efficient ball use is not in the game plan.
