I agree with Essendon’s failures but nobody is carrying Essendon. Essendon is still the club keeping Marvel Stadium alive and despite all these failures, still generates among the largest crowds, memberships and sponsorship books in the AFL. Hardly being carried.Back to the Future! Essendons recruiting and administration is so Richmond from our troubled years . You will keep stumbling from one crisis , different coaches and At very best the odd mid table finish for many many more years . Gosh you’ll consider our apparent habit of finishing 9th as a success . Let’s call it Essendondy .
Why should we , as a successful club , contributing to not only the financial coffers of the AFL but to the social agenda if the AFL be penalized by the tax but also carry perrenial underperformers like Essendon ?
It’s tragic . Essendon is tragic . Sheedy’s legacy .
Hope that clears it up for you .
