The Essendon farewell tour featuring Winders, Chappy, Fletch coming soon to you

Is John Farnham gonna join in or is that the next farewell tour?


#1723

Anybody know anything?


#1724
Anybody know anything?
According to a yarraville organic store clerk who serves him - he won't be playing again.

#1725
Anybody know anything?
I do.

I know that when I need recycled timber, I call Just Eco.

Yep no doubt he will pull the plug this time

He did last time. Hird talked him out of it.


A black mark against Hirdy.

■■■■■■■ it Hirdy, wasn’t divining future injuries part of your course in France?!

A black mark for you, Hirdy, a black mark for you.


#1728

Not suggesting whether it’s a black mark or not, but I’m fairly confident we could all have guessed if asked whether we thought Winders would get injuries or not… :frowning:

Two clubs seemed to want him pretty badly.


#1730

It’s weird he really hasn’t been spoken about since April or may. Poor bugger should have stayed retired

Some of us called it at the time, so its hardly like you needed a crystal ball.

“Sorry Jason, we know you want to keep playing, and to be honest we’d love for you to keep playing, but some people on the internet know for a fact you will get injured, so we’ll have to let you go. Donate to the Flight Plan.”

It wasn’t just the likelihood he’d struggle to be fit and available. It was that his performances really dropped off last season. And that we only took 2 players in the whole ND. Talking him into staying just looked like such a bad idea, and a lot of people on here said so at the time.

Hird, Dodorro and the club got this one wrong.

You’re speaking with the benefit of hindsight. His performances didn’t “really drop off last season”. At the time, Winders had played some great games in defense and had the ability to turn games and spark the forward line. They thought if he could stay fit he would be a great weapon to have as we fought for a top four spot.

Alas, the sorry saga didn’t end, we were cursed with injuries and Winders got injured. Not much you can do about that when the alternative was keeping Aylett on the main list.


#1736

I personally prefer, all things considered, that he’s on our list not playing due to injury than having to go through the snarky media ■■■■ of him moving clubs. I don’t mind it as a PR move.


#1737

Are these guys(Fletch, Chappy, Winders)
Going to be allowed to play a farewell, perhaps our last home game V Richmond?

I’m positive Fletch will get a farewell game. As he should. Just stick him up forward and see if he can snag a few.

I reckon Chapman thinks he can play another season, so won’t announce his retirement and will try his luck in the draft. If he was going to retire i think he would of announced it already.

I reckon Winderlich will retire, but will choose to not play a retirement game, and give his spot to a youngster.


#1739

Feel sorry for the guy. He’s tried so hard to get fit and get into this club he so clearly adores but has been let down by injury time and time again. He was one who certainly cared.

Are you on meth? He played arguably the best footy he had in 5 years last year. He was very good in most games

quote, from bomber “its definitely unusual for someone in such good form to decide to retire”
