He also operates a cooking demonstration business, “Cooking With Embers”. Brilliant business name. Set up for life after footy.
Now I don’t want to harp on about negatives when talking about such a champion of our game but I have an obligation to the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Community here. I need to remind you all of the qualifying final this season when Embley coughed up a shocker and handed Collingwood the game.
This is what happens when your reflexes and reaction times slow down kids.

He had a shocker in 2012. Stuffed his shoulder in the NAB, played the first 3 injured then went under the knife. When he did eventually play he was sub affected in 3 of his games which stuffed his fantasy footy scores. Some would write this off as bad luck but I’ve been around this block too many bloody times kids. With a bloke as advanced in years as old Embers you need to expect these injuries as a par for the course.
It saddens an old bloke to say this but we all understand that this is a brutal game. No room for romance here. Andrew mate – you’re bloody cheap this year. I know that. I know we also have a bit more room in our midfield and more trades available to fit the mid price player in. But these are the facts mate… the game has passed you by and I wont be entertaining you as an option in Supercoach, Dreamteam or any of the AFL Fantasy draft forms of the game in 2013.
If you play with embers kids… you’ll get burnt.
Will anyone think about cooking with Embers in 2013?
