Congratulations Bernie Vince on 100 MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Well done Bernie on your 100th for the Red and Blue v Gold Coast next Sunday.  He has been a wonderful player since arriving at the club in 2014 with Roos and Crossy.  We should all be grateful that he threw his lot in with us and as Roos has pointed out a number of times, he has played a significant role in increasing the professionalism around the club. 2015 B&F and now should he have kids good enough to play in the big league, they'll have a choice between the Crows and the mighty Demons!

Love Bernies contribution to the club. He arrived during the dark times and as you mentioned has improved our culture to no end. Congratulations Bernie!

One of my favourites. Has been great for our club and I wish him the best for a fantastic game on Sunday.

Bernie is a great one to have around the club. He likes a beer and is easy going off the ground by all accounts but when it's time to hit the track or it's game time, he is 100% professional.

The name is on the locker now so he is part of the club forever. Well done Bernie!

It would be very hard to fully repay what this guy has done for our club. People certainly weren’t bashing the door down to come here. So stoked that he gets to this 100 game milestone for us and knowing that his kids will have the option. 

Love ya Bernie! Keep smiling! 😛

We named our cat Bernie and he said that there are over 100 cats named Bernie in Adelaide.  Thanks for being part of our Great club. You have won a Best and Fairest and now you play your 100th game. Hope you get to play finals. However you never know what else might be around the corner as well.

Absolutely stoked that he’s made it. Was a crucial cog in the Roos era in fast tracking our path back to competitiveness, and has always played like the jumper matters. 

Will go down as a true Demon now. Well done Bernie!

Fine servant of this footy club. Has provided leadership and maturity since crossing from adelaide.

100 games for 2 club is a massive achievement let alone 2 best and fairests.

Well done Bernie.

Yep.  Bernie is good value.  After the game on Sat night they asked him if he was allowed to smile, now he had a win.  He had a chuckle, and said he still covered his face with his hand when he had a chat to Tex "just in case...".  LOL

He's one of a rare breed who knows when to give it all (before the final siren), but who can then lighten up and enjoy life with his mates, including those now wearing oppo colours.

Well done, Bernie.  VERY glad you're a Dee!

their loss..Our gain!

Thanks Adelaide.

I tried to talk my niece in naming her unborn child Bernie. She is a Dees supporter and I remember we sat down and went through the list. She picked out a few names like Jake, Oliver, Jesse and Jordan but unfortunately she had a girl.

She is pregnant again so I am sure we will go through the same process again with the footy record.

She's never heard of Bernice? or Bernardette?

Would likely choose Crows, his kids...unless we win a flag while he's playing.

Has a real estate agency in Melbourne so wonder if he will stick around he after he retires?

IMO is having his second best season after his B&F season. Been consistently reliable and accountable in defense. Had an up and down season last year but has found a new role this year.

Hows this year been his 2nd best year when hes already been dropped once, and showing signs of slowing down?

2014 to last year have been some of his most consistent years of footy he's had over his football career.

In my opinion hes probably gone a year too long, but we've gotten 100 consistent games off him and thats all we've asked.

Been a great servant for the club after coming to us at our lowest point. Hopefully one crack at GF spot before hanging up the boots and the end of the season.

Loved him as a Crow, couldn't believe we got him so cheap when we did... was a bit critical of the pickup as I didn't think he'd play in a winning final for us as we were so many years off it. But I was wrong about that... has added to the club as much as anyone on the list in the period he's been there. Should be remembered as a demon for all time. Father sons etc...

Yeah that was a silly comment. 14-16 he was very consistent. Last year he did the job as a serviceable half back. I had doubts about him playing this year more because I didn't think he'd be best 22 (and still don't) and I wanted to see what younger guys like Wagner and Joel Smith had to offer but with Lever, Hibberd and Hunt all out injured he's mostly kept his spot. Very deserving of the 100 club games because the first 40 in particular were hard going.
