Should Joe Daniher be dropped?

With Essendon set to face their old enemies Carlton this weekend, and Joe Daniher horribly out of form, should the forward spend some time in the VFL?

That's the question being asked by Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall and Jon Pierik on the Real Footy podcast this week.

Dyson Heppell has said his teammates need to buy in to the game style or be replaced by those who will. So is Daniher completely to blame for his own slump, or should we look to the Essendon midfield?

And on the other side of the coin, if the Blues cop another hiding, there will be ructions – from Carlton heavyweights and beyond.

Also this week, the problems at St Kilda continue. How much of it is down to the players and how much of it is down to Alan Richardson? And how much has the underwhelming career of Paddy McCartin contributed to the Saints' current troubles?

Meanwhile, we chat about the Demons' extremely talented list and why the panic from a few weeks ago will prove to be incorrect, Brad Scott's brilliant coaching and the formula teams should use to beat Sydney.

All this plus eyebrows being raised about the non-selection of Kyle Langford at Essendon, the contract priorities at Collingwood, and why the Pies' clash with Brisbane was so good.
