No doubt retires as a champion..... in the eyes of Essendon flogs and the sycophantic AFL media that is....retires in disgrace as far as everyone else is concerned... :shh

Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more.

I can understand his angst. I'm surprised these blokes haven't screwed Essendon over for what they did to them. Why they let them do it is just mindboggling it shows how much faith these guys have in the people that run the club. And Why the doc got off scott free is still baffling.
The club that keeps giving.

I don't blame him for what happened. I do think he has a lack of character for not showing leadership of the club and the game. Coming clean and giving back the medal much much earlier. Once the evidence was in it was pretty obvious but to hold out saying it's not 100% definitive just smacked of hubris.  Farewell to a tarnished very good player.
