Former premiership winner turned AFL analyst Kane Cornes has come under fire for using selective footage to make Essendon coach Ben Rutten look bad.

Cornes ran a segment from the final quarter of the Essendon versus North Melbourne match from round 20 on Fox Footy.

In the scenes, Bombers star Nick Hind comes from the field and Rutten asks him to come and sit next to him. Hind initially refuses, before eventually sitting next to his coach but completely blanking him as Rutten tries to give him feedback.

Rutten survived the axe at Essendon for their woeful season this week, but Cornes used the footage to show that the players had 'clearly checked out'.

'You ask whether the players have checked out, this is round 20,' he said.

'I'm not sure I've seen vision of a player treat a coach like this.

'He doesn't want to sit next to Ben Rutten, but Ben Rutten says "no, sit here".
