ANGER MANAGEMENT: Also in Melbourne, Caroline Wilson wrote Essendon’s senior players have asked suspended coach James Hird "to put aside his personal angst and allow the Bombers to focus on the 2014 season." It is understood that "the message was communicated to Hird in recent days via the leadership group and club captain Jobe Watson."
