  1. I think ur right there Demonstone. I keep going back to fixtures to see the year I saw him and am still not sure. I only know it was at Junction oval as I was given a free seasons ticket for the day by our school and sat right behind the goals. The S aints were so good in that game. :)
  2. I saw Carl in his 3rd or 4th match totally dominate the Dees at Junction oval..with Stewart and Baldock on fire and Bob Murray kicking goals at full forward, they beat us easily...though we did go on to win the flag later that year!
  3. Try this Sisso . Makes interesting watching. †here are other Majak daw highlights on youtube too..
  4. Well said Hemingway. I liked Alan Rowarth..Could play half forward flank and kick goals and the swing to full forward and do likewise. I guess he really filled in after Athol Webb retired. Norm Smith seemed to use him abit like he did wth Barry Bourke a few years later-a small decoy full forward but one who could still kick goals. Thoose were the days of black shorts for home games at the G and I remember Alan coming out one day in shorts that must have been bleached as they had lost their black colour and turned grey. Dad got Denis Jones' signature for me on his photo which also s
  5. Ha Ha..Fenton Smith just got censored again. Maybe if we called him Doc or Duck instead of [censored] it might get through?
  6. LOL I remember [censored] Fenton Smith. I wouldn't have censored him! :)
  7. Hi P2J Yes-legends for sure. I was born in 1950 and sop lucky that Dad used to take me to matches at the MCG to see these guys-they have given me so many memories to carry through the years. I would love to meet some of them before we all pass on. :)
  8. Thanks The Stigga-you got me keen to go back and look at the selected sides and stats-gee 1959 and 1960 teams were so good. I can't pick between them. Was also amazed when I saw the emergencies for 1959 - players who didn't make the team-what a line up:- Athol Webb Trevor Johnson and Neil,Crompton :) Team B: John Beckwith (c), Tassie Johnson, John Lord HB: Geoff Case, Dennis Jones, Ian Thorogood C: Ian McLean, Laurie Mithen, Brian Dixon HF: Geoff Tunbridge, Clyde Laidlaw, Hassa Mann F: Ron Barassi, Alan Rowarth, Ian Ridley R: Bob Johnson, [censored] Fenton-Smith, Frank A
  9. As a boy we struggled a bit financially-for many years I kicked a plastic footy when my mates with their real "footies:"were not around. I didn't have a footy jumper so I wrote to the great man asking him for one of his. I posted it addressed to Ron via the club -in a scenario akin to sending a Christmas wish to Santa at the North Pole! I received a lovely photo with his signature saying:- "Sorry no jumper Tim - I hope this will help." This has become more poignant now as I received this a week before his big move to Carlton was announced. He must have had a million things on his mi
  10. The guy deserves his dignity. Rather a tasteless comment
  11. There have been occasions when I have missed Maurie and his Number 3 clunking a mark or giving a bit of don't argue out! :)
  12. One thing I liked in those video clips apart from the marking, goal kicking ability was the tackling-he is prepared to chase and effectively tackle and negate Opposition forward thrusts.
  13. Spot on John D. I think I saw your post last year and you beat me to it. I
