  1. 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
  2. Can anyone ever emulate the great ultra team man Pedo Phillip Island B and F they must think he’s Superman down there
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 60 yrs for me think I’m nearly done Till next game anyway
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Grew up walking distance from Barkly Street Got away and went Bush ASAP never thought that I may have been too pretty to stay
  11. Things could be worse We could have Bellchambers on our list
  12. Don’t live in the filthy Western Suburbs Sorry not everyone born in Toorak like your good self
  13. Yep was there that day we rested a lot of players as we had already secured top spot I wasn’t happy as I to turn up at Nth Footscray State School and cop a lot [censored] on Monday
