Until Zach can show others he runs defensively with conviction than I'd rather have Heppell or someone else captain.This might be an unpopular opinion but so be it. This was a good time to make Zach Merrett the captain and let Heppell focus on footy. Or perhaps have a Cummins-Smith style structure where Heppell supports Merrett and acts as captain if Merrett does not play.
All Essendon games games while they where the official captain of the club.
Don’t agree with any of this. Lloyd clearly the best player and I’d say worst captain. Watson clearly the best captain - the way the players spoke of him during the drugs saga made it clear to me. Leaves Heppell worst player second best captain
People are a bit harsh on Lloyd - how much input did he have, as captain, on list management and gameplan? Both were awful in Sheedy’s last few years as coach and then Knights picked up where Sheedy left off.
