David Myers (born 30 June 1989) is a professional Australian rules footballer, currently playing for the Essendon Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL).
He is a tall midfielder originally from Perth in the WAFL, he also attended Wesley College, Perth.
Myers was drafted with the 6th overall selection in the 2007 national draft by Essendon.
Myers, along with 33 other Essendon players, was found guilty of using a banned performance enhancing substance, thymosin beta-4, as part of Essendon's sports supplements program during the 2012 season. He and his team-mates were initially found not guilty in March 2015 by the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal, but a guilty verdict was returned in January 2016 after an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency. He was suspended for two years which, with backdating, ended in November 2016; as a result, he served approximately fourteen months of his suspension and missed the entire 2016 AFL season. The suspension lead to speculation that Myers would exercise his rights as an unrestricted free agent and leave Essendon, but during the year he signed a three year contract to remain with Essendon until the end of the 2019 season.Statistics are correct to end of the 2015 season.
Did not play in 2016 as he was one of the seventeen still-active AFL players who missed the 2016 season as a result of the Essendon Football Club supplements saga investigation.
