Sad to finally see Fletch go.
Such a humble champion too is what makes me so proud that he represented our club.
How he has survived 23 seasons surrounded by all the reprobates, narcissists, criminals, druggie, rapist, pisshead farkwits that seems to surround professional sports these days, with a clean reputation and respect from his fellow athletes is truly a great testemant to his character.
One of my great memories of him was a game at Subiaco Oval (2004?) against the Eagles, was when he had his front teeth knocked out early in the game. After a frantic search by the trainers at quarter time I think it was, to Fletches relief, they managed to find them and preserve them in milk and get some seriously quick dental work performed for him in Perth. Funnily enough though, in interviews after the incident he never seemed fazed about it at all.
Apart from all his usual on field feats that we all became accustomed to seeing, it was his speed for a big guy and ability to play on a variety of different sized opponents that stood out for me.
Fletch will be sorely missed by us Bomber faithful.
Wish him all the very best in his future endevours.
