Was a steadying influence on supporters, as well as players. Capable of amazing acts of contortionism while also being unwavering in his dependability.
He just went about his business with a minimum of fuss on & off the field. The word champion gets thrown around a lot these days, but the title fits him well.
His run down on Jeffy was a recent favourite moment but I can still picture him slouched while standing some of the all time great full forwards Dunstall, Lockett, Ablett etc.
I just realised that I was there for so many of his long bomb goals & there is now no more players on the list older than me. That's a big generational shift for me.
Will miss him immensely, good luck big fella, enjoy some real quite time.
