Johnson was deemed to be close enough to the end, and IMO pushed at the right time.Steve Johnson, James Kelly, and Paul Chapman were better than serviceable. Not sure if Varcoe was struggling to get into the side or was told to find another club so I left him out
Kelly only got a gig because most of Essendon's list were banned.
Chapman missed 16/24 games injured in 2013 and asked for a 2 year deal. The fact he was cooked midway through his second season at Essendon vindicates the decision to only offer one year, which was rejected.
Varcoe was a 500k salary dump in preparation for Dangerfield the following year.
