Thinking outside the box for Essendon captaincy

Essendon coach John Worsfold says Brendon Goddard is the obvious choice to captain the embattled Bombers in 2016.

And the rest of the available list doesn’t scream captaincy material.

What about premiership Hawk Jonathan Simpkin?

Or Geelong champion James Kelly?

‘Why not?’
