There's just a slight problem with the PM's ATM. They're not working!

They're not working? I was able to use the controls and the message appeared to

send OK. No error messages or such. Can you confirm Mark if you got my PM??

OK, I'll whip up another Robbie Flower highlights video tape, but I don't have the machine that burns it onto DVD.

If anyone does has access to such a machine, let me know, and we'll work something out.

Comparing Robert Flower to a current day player is difficult.

Perhaps a much more consistent Travis Johnstone, but alot better mark, who kicked more goals, and was a super leader and captain might come close.

I see the Travis Johnstone comparison come up from time to time, but for mine I can't see the comparison. Travis is a user and a finisher. Robert Flower got the hard ball in packs, took contested aerial marks in heavy traffic (outstanding considering his slight build) , you name it. His evasive skills were freakish and perhaps what make him stand out from all others. He just couldn't be caught. Finally, his loyalty to the red and blue is what makes Flower a favourite son.

2. Dee's V Swans 2nd Semi @ The G in 1987.

I wasnt at this game ,but I was at the previous week's demolition of North melbourne, when Flower kicked about 6. He played with a small fracture in the hand , and at the coin toss, the North Captain John Law, squeezed hard in the handshake to test it out.

Interestingly for readers of this site, again he was taken off by Northey with 10 minutes to go (dees up by over 100pts) to the biggest standing ovation Iv'e ever seen at the 'G' and was replaced by.... Rhino Richards! - straight into the centre.
