AFL 2020: Asterisk on 2020 flag will be compliment to premiers: Essendon CEO Xavier Campbell

“Some clubs will probably navigate through better than others, that’s just the nature of it, and that will go a long way to better positioning when it comes to your on-field performance, and I hope we’re one of those clubs.

“It feels like this year is as much about mental as it is about physical and football more than anything.”

Despite the AFL giving certainty around a June 11 resumption date, Campbell said surprises throughout the season would force teams to adapt and be resilient.

“It’ll be different and it will feel different and it won’t be perfect and at every different juncture there’s going to be a twist or turn we’re not going to be expecting,” he said.

“It might have an asterisk on it, but it will have an asterisk that underlines how hard-fought and the determination and everything else that’s required to get clubs there to win the premiership.”

Campbell said he had not been tested for coronavirus as he was not one of the 25 Bombers staff who is permitted to enter the club.

“We’ve got Lisa Lawry, the GM of people and culture, and Dan Richardson, they’re the two senior people in our football program,” he said.

“I’ll be involved in a lot of the [virtual] football meetings but the face to face stuff will be done by them on the ground.”
