Subsequently cherished and worn proudly by Maxy.

Number 9 - Neitz, Dixon, Fowler,  Alan Johnson

Its available with Trengoves departure.   Maybe Lever will take it.

Also got pipped  in the 1975 Brownlow.

Great that he had success at North in 77.

Even though we didn't have success he made up a great centre line in the 70's

I thought he defected and went to North chasing the Premiership he got in '77 but I met him and he explained that Skilton became the coach at the end of '76 and even though he was the Captain sacked him saying he was rebuilding with youth. (Sounds familiar). He was devastated and thought his career was over but then got a call from Barassi asking him to come to North. No wonder he did a cartwheel on his wing when the siren sounded and he won a Premiership at the end of that season.

4 Norm Smith - 4 and 6 - greatest football strategist, player manager in VFL history. 

31 Ron Barassi - 6 and 4 - most competitive and successful footballer ever? 

2 Robert Flower - our most exceptional and graceful player

11 Jim Stynes - the most inspirational player story in the VFL/AFL's short history!
