"New Essendon board member Kevin Sheedy has heavily backed controversial long-term list manager Adrian Dodoro and said it's time for the club to reassert its identity after unashamedly trying to be more like Richmond."
But Sheedy, who coached the Bombers to four premierships and will join the board next month, said Dodoro was the right person to lead the list rebuild and return the club to a position of respect.
"I think Adrian has been a very, very good recruiting officer," said Sheedy, who was frustrated at the inertia of the club he left in 2007.
