Former Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy says he wouldn’t take advantage of clubs with major off-field dramas, such as the Bombers at the moment.
The foundation coach of the Greater Western Sydney Giants and now board member told SEN Radio he won’t try and lure contracted players away from his former club under the controversial ‘duty of care’ clause.
“I probably wouldn’t, I’ve never gone after players at clubs that have been down and working through some tough times,” Sheedy said on Wednesday morning.
“I think you can destroy clubs and personally I wouldn’t like to do that with Essendon or any other club.
“I never went after Fitzroy players or others at clubs that have really been struggling.
“My job really was always to try and develop players that other people may not have wanted or didn’t think they were good enough.”
