Triple M's Luke Darcy says he is 'hearing The Weapon won't be there next year'.

When co-host Eddie McGuire asked Darcy if his mail was good, Darcy replied 'yeah'.

'The Weapon', also known as Dean Robinson, is Essendon's strength and conditioning coach and has been the butt of criticism from some after a horror year of injuries for the Bombers.

"They over-trained and then they broke down," said Darcy.

Most of Essendon's key players went down with soft tissue injuries after 'The Weapon' put the work in the players to build them up in the pre-season.

The Bombers missed the finals this year, despite starting the season with eight wins from their first nine games, and while the side's form dropped off for several reasons in the latter half of the year most pundits referred to injuries as the biggest factor.

Triple M's Hot Breakfast contacted Essendon, which has not yet responded.
