Roberts spent his last season at Windy Hill in the reserves before negotiating a release to Melbourne. He chose the Demons over Collingwood and South Melbourne who were also interested.
Rejecting a cash offer the Bombers demanded a player in return, but the Demons believed that they were owed a favor after winger Gary Parkes - who was meant to be a part of the Allan Davis trade - joined Richmond instead of the Demons.
After one game in 1979 Roberts became coach of East Launceston, before joining Lavington as coach in 1980. He won a premiership there before leaving at the end of 1984 to captain-coach Kedron, then assistant coach Western Suburbs in the QAFL.
