That's good news for Essendon. Better without him. Found Heppels comments that they don't understand Ruttens game plan as new defensive coach 10 days before round 1 very interesting.

We are not better without a fully fit Joe but we are better off without him at half rat power.

That can’t be right, clubs don’t lie about injury, unless of course it’s Adelaide?

Good to see the AFL tick it off [emoji3]

Shiel to benefit from Dons side deal
Michael Warner, Herald Sun

3-4 minutes

Star Essendon recruit Dylan Shiel has landed a side job working for a wealthy Bombers powerbroker.

In an arrangement ticked off by the AFL, Shiel has joined property tycoon and former Essendonians coterie club president Mark Casey at his company, Casey Capital.

Casey tonight confirmed he had employed Shiel on a part-time basis to “learn the property game for life after football”.

Shiel, 26, shifted from Greater Western Sydney to the Dons in exchange for two first-round draft picks during last October’s trade period.

Carlton and St Kilda had hotly pursued Shiel, with the Blues flying him to Noosa on a private jet as part of an unsuccessful bid to win his signature.

“Dylan is an intelligent person and is keen to create a future outside of football,” Casey told the Herald Sun .

“He has aspirations to be a property developer, so we are delighted to have him as part of the Casey Capital team.

“Dylan will be working with me closely on two new large-scale residential projects, one west of Melbourne and the other a new $2 billion town on the Byron Bay coast.”


Dylan Shiel will earn up to $20,000 a year from a job with former Essendonians coterie club president Mark Casey’s Casey Capital.

The AFL stipulates that all financial arrangements with club supporters and third-party benefactors must be unrelated to player contracts or a players’ decision to move clubs.

Asked whether Shiel was aware of the prospect of working for him before he agreed to join the Bombers, Casey said: “I had no discussions with Dylan prior to him joining the club.”

He said Shiel would earn up to $20,000 a year in wages, but receive “invaluable experience and first-hand opportunities to invest in future projects as all staff do”.

Casey, the brother of former Richmond president Clinton Casey, was behind the lucrative Armstrong Creek property venture that saw Essendon legend Mark “Bomber” Thompson and Bombers list boss Adrian Dodoro split a $14 million jackpot from an investment of $394,000 each.

Dodoro oversaw the negotiations that sent Shiel to the Dons in a swap for pick No. 9 in last year’s draft and Essendon’s first-round selection this season.


Former Bomber Andrew Welsh has an estimated fortune of $121 million after being mentored by Mark Casey.

Casey, whose company has more than 10,000 lots under its portfolio of projects, has previously mentored Essendon players Andrew Welsh and Dean Solomon in the property development game.

Welsh, 36, was named in last year’s top 25 Young Rich List with an estimated fortune of $121 million.

“Our company has a diverse range of projects from new towns, childcare, townhouses and retirement villages, and Dylan will be part of the team that will deliver these projects,” Casey said.

In 2012, Greater Western Sydney was forced to include the wages of its recruiter, Phil Scully, in the club’s salary cap after the Herald Sun revealed his employment had been directly related to the signing of his son, Tom Scully.

Coming off 6 goals last week in a thumping of NM, I'm keen to see how Laverde goes today against Collingwood.

Don’t play Laverde against the Cats!
Think he has played them 4 times and suffered a serious injury every time against them

Francis went forward a few times and kicked a couple so think he might come in. Draper very impressive again, need to get a contract in front of him very soon as his progress has been amazing and several other clubs will be sniffing around
