Hands off Anzac Day: Worsfold

Essendon coach John Worsfold has dismissed calls for the Anzac Day blockbuster to be shared amongst other AFL clubs as insulting and disrespectful.

The Bombers and Collingwood are struggling with just win each going into the showpiece fixture, leading for some commentators – notably Channel Seven doyen Dennis Cometti – to call for the game to be shared around.

Worsfold said the idea of giving other clubs the opportunity to play on Anzac Day at the expense of Essendon was “a little bit insulting towards Kevin Sheedy” who was one of the architects of the blockbuster.
