Essendon half back Courtenay Dempsey surprised and pleased a host of fans on social media by an impromptu Twitter session where he got right in there and chatted away for just about the whole day. He discussed anything from console games, family, non-AFL sport interests, his role in the team, teammates and of course, the coach.

It all started when Dempsey took to social media to defend close friend and ex-teammate Patrick Ryder who was receiving some rough treatment from the Essendon fans on Saturday night. Dempsey kicked off by retweeting a tweet that questioned why Ryder was being treated as he was.



 What happened next was beyond what anyone had expected. When that thought was challenged, Dempsey responded with grace and logic
