It worked but try this one to get around the paywall

Really nicely written article by Tony Armstrong, really insightful for players finishing up their careers (it sounds like that is what Tony will be doing). Wish him well in the future and good to hear that Eddie was helping him out a little.

Channel 7 Reporting that Essendon have approached Tony Armstrong and 3 others as Top up players.

Sam Grimley, Aiden Riley and Daneil Markworth the other 3.

I am going to miss Tony not playing VFL for us this year and not a fan of the thought of him in Red and Black.

They could do a lot worse than Armstrong, but think harder bodies to protect the kids would be a better fit.

I met Tony a few times at trainings and had a chat with him once, He's great. His passion for life and helping futures of young Indigenous kids is awesome.

Didn't do that much wrong at senior level, Got way to much hate.

Hope he gets picked up and plays for Bombers. Good luck Tonay.
He had no Weapons to become a AFL Player. Great Bloke but Does not make him a AFL Footballer

I would be really pleased for Tony if he got picked up. He doesn't have many fans on this board as a footballer but everyone should be a fan of him as a person. I'm sure all at the club would be chuffed for him if he got another chance. As a club in crisis Tony is the type of character Essendon needs around their young kids in 2016.
