well done bomber,now chase chappy!
The Black Chooks out there are filling their pants at the idea of a resurgent Essendon, so they have to keep the myth of 'cheating' alive.The club has been punished far beyond its culpability, so let them move on. Give those who've made a decent contribution to the game, like MT, a fair go.
Yeh! Go Bomber! 2014 will be a great season for EFC.
Awesome news... good on ya bomber for stepping up
Caro will be choking on her lunch hearing this- classic.
Great club culture.... replacing one guilty individual with another. I Hird its all going down hill at EssenDone
Thompson stood up against the program but the AFL found him guilty of not doing enough to stop it and fined him heavily. In your world that should disqualify him from ever coaching again? That is not a world I would like to live in.
"On balance it has been a year of highs and lows."What is this idiot referring to, highs what were the the euphoric sensation one feels when injected by performance enhancing substances, what did this stop in February ???

AWESOME! Perfect prep for Hirds return.
I'm not sure about this appointment. Was hopeing for a clean start. Not that I don't respect Mark's abilities, it's just that we had such a hard year and we really need to move on from that.
Does Bomber re-recruit The Weapon and Dank to help build a high-high performance department???
The essendon football club will go down in history for being the club that was the most insecure with itself (ie need drugs to be competitive) and the club with the most arrogant coach (they cant catch me I am untouchable, will never admit any responsibility and will never sincerely apologise to player parents for my personal actions or actions of those I am responsible - Hird )
Lets just recycle the people that did so much damage to our game.
To all the whingers-give it up! We have been severely punished and now we have an opportunity for renewal. The AFL needs a strong Essendon and so do many financially weak clubs who benefit come game-day. We are back with almost all the list signed up. So much for the exodus!
So the taint of the Essendon drugs scandal continues.
@black chookGo Away.
Was Thompson? No! Clearly the AFL is happy for him to coach. Classic.
