Once again, apologies for the outage. This was an issue entirely beyond our control. The site remained in perfect working order. It was an issue with distributing incoming visitor requests to our web servers.
The story didn’t come out of the club anyway. The kick to the calf injury thing came from another forum and Facebook, which was then a tear on the afl website, which was then a strain on the Essendon website. The club was the last to break the news, they’re not exactly controlling the narrative here.
