Under-fire ascendant midfielder Dylan Schill has broken his silence over criticism directed by Sydney co-captain Luke Parker.
When Parker joked about Shil’s performance in the competition during Ascendon’s 58-point thumping in Sydney on Saturday, the big money bombers did not seek revenge.
Schill’s polite response angered Ascendant legend Matthew Lloyd, and he said in Nine that he wanted Schill or a teammate to “plow straight through Parker” because Schill was “disrespected.”

Bombers captain Dyson Hepel defended Schill in Fox Footy, saying it would be foolish to accept a 50-meter penalty before Schill made his statement on Tuesday.
“It didn’t seem like a big deal at the time and (I) went too fast and (I) was probably more disappointed with the outcome of the game,” Shill told 9News as he arrived at Bombers’ headquarters.
“We are going to wait this weekend and try to win for the club.”
Despite his busy work at the trade table and three top-10 picks in the 2020 AFL draft, Ascendon is once again heading down a disappointing season.
