In a shock move, Essendon have wiped out their entire eSports team following their inaugural season.
A statement on the Bombers website explains that roster changes have seen all 5 members of their squad delisted in a mass clear-out.
LISTEN | Triple M Footy reporter Tom Browne spoke to Will & MJ about the eSports scandal:
"In Split 1 of 2018, our team finished in seventh place in the OPL, falling short on the expectations of both our team and the pundits," the statement reads.
"With the 2018 season officially at its end, we have taken the time to reflect on the 2018 season and evaluate our processes, support structures and roster moving forward.
"It is through these evaluations that we have come to an incredibly tough decision to not renew the contracts of any of our 2018 starting roster."
The team featured during Channel 7's Friday night footy coverage when Brian Taylor referred to the squad as 'gadget-type operators'.
