  1. Sorry to say it will be the centre of a Type of civilisation within 20 years Kilometre after kilometre of boring little boxes with no backyards Built in what was once our most fertile farmland
  2. That’s Good because in 30 yrs of bush footy I didn’t do much of anything more than a slow lap before training But still had plenty of injuries glad it wasn’t because I didn’t stretch much
  3. One of my favourites as a kid Often took 2 or 3 bites of the cherry as the commentators of the day often said Great Mark
  4. As a 10 yr old at the time I felt exactly the same At the time it actually split some families as RDB was so popular that some supporters transferred their support to Carlton
  5. Always hoped he would improve but watching him closely at Casey a few times thought he also struggled at that level I think he could have been tried in other positions He never had the confidence to succeed on the last line of defence
  6. Can anyone ever emulate the great ultra team man Pedo Phillip Island B and F they must think he’s Superman down there
  7. I went to all MCG games and a few away games in the early sixties Gallus looked like a natural CHF from memory but like a lot of our big blokes in that era never really took off After reading that story it’s great credit to him that he did as well as he did
  8. Great watching the footage of that game It seems that when we mention the great players of that team John Townsend seems to get forgotten He was such a talented brave rover I remember John Nichols shirtfronting him at the MCG How he got up after that I don’t know
  9. Can play down back if required Port Melbourne premiership player at CHB I was hoping we might have drafted him back then He stood out as being too good for VFL
  10. Loved Geoff Leek looked like my father As a player they called him the Old War Horse great nick name Had a mate who blamed Doug Bigelows commentary for many a Pies loss
  11. 60 yrs for me think I’m nearly done Till next game anyway
  12. Watched Oscar a number of times up close at Casey He wasn’t even up to standard at that level But often was named among the best It amazes me why he has been given so much support Seems a nice guy Gooo and play Golf
  13. Think Tassie played every position possible for a man his size Ruck all the key positions and back and foward pockets A real legend and hero of mine
