A big loss and sad news for Essendon, 38 years at the club after coming over from Richmond.

I see the bombers have delisted, Towsend, Gleeson, Dylan Clark and Crauford. Thought Clarke is a bit stiff.

Clark and Gleeson will possibly be re-rookied but cuts in list size did them no favours. Both are nothing special though so no great loss.
Happy to get rid of Townsend and Crauford was a rookie with back issues

Thought he had a pretty decent season for his age and stage of footy/life .. His best this season looked enough to consider going once more, but there were times he gave the impression he'd struggle to get through another 12 months.

Zaharakis not offered a contract and is hoping to continue elsewhere next season. Not sure anyone takes a punt on him, maybe Geelong ;)

I like retro logos normally but it looks very cheap, old, amateur and crappy IMHO, assume it's based on one of their past logos?
Ports effort much better in making a modern simple logo using the past as inspiration.

Our voting system throws up some odd results from time to time but I guess it just shows the Snelling is rated by the coaches and plays his role
