What's Our Most Iconic Number?

You'd think 2 would be up there as well.

31

It will always be 31 (tbh we should retire that number as it carries such enormous expectations).

Perhaps we will when RDB leaves this mortal world. (But hell let's do it during his lifetime!)

Depends on individual memories hence age. 

For baby boomers, I still think 31 resonates. Perhaps given new life by young Bayley F.

Post 1970, probably 2.  

For the very recent fan base, probably 11 and until end of 2017, 4.

2. 

31 is tainted as he left the club and went to Carlton. I despise Carlton and anyone to do with that club.

31 for me.

And for about the first time since RDB left I am getting excited by a player wearing the number playing with passion and enthusiasm. Can’t off the top of my head recall any in the intervening 53 years.  Ray Groom may  have been the closest.

Hoping 13 will be in a decade or so.

Good chance it may be. Some good company in Yze, Jakovich and Fen McDonald.

Yep, my thoughts exactly. A triple brownlow from Clarrie will make certain of it haha.

2 Robbie was the soul of the club. As great as he was and is and loved and adored, RDB left, Flower did not. 11 Stynes a close 3rd.

In addition to the obvious 2, 11 and 31 a case could be made for 9 - Neita and Brian Dixon. Or may be it’s been sullied by Scully.

Growing up in the nineties it was always 9 for me. Still my favourite number.

Can only be 2.

Please close thread so no other alternatives can be suggested.

Now I hope this becomes true, but I reckon Ben has got ahead of himself...

"Gawn inherited the No.37 jumper from Stynes, who presented him with his jumper after being drafted, and switched to the No.11 at the end of the 2014 season in honour of his mentor.

The pair would have to be regarded as two of Melbourne's greatest ever ruckmen. - Ben Guthrie"

 

Donald Cordner is ahead of Max for the moment, in my strong opinion.
