Understatement
He was a true star of the game and not recognised enough by this game.

Under rated amongst Essendon supporters and football public.

He’s on the same level as Hird IMO.
And his team mates said the same.

Absolute rolls royce in his prime.

And his 93 Prelim goal is still the loudest and most physical noise I’ve heard at a game

Superstar. And completely underrated outside Essendon supporters.

That qualifying final vs Sydney when he was BOG on the back of a quarter and a half was all time.

Yep… need more!

Anyone know what he’s up to now?

I thought he was a great player and loved to watch him. He wasn’t as good as Hird, but was a champion player in a champion team.

Can’t get much better than that!

He is a chippy now working on building sites across Melbourne. He is very understated and humble, a good worker by all reports.

Did a footy clinic with him as a junior, he seemed very reserved and shy. I wondered are they contractually obliged to attend those things, or do they volunteer for maybe a slight bump in pay? Of all of them I attended not many of the pros seemed like they wanted to be there. But then coming down to Ballarat in winter I can hardly blame them. Anyway superb player, his year in '99 was absolutely elite and he should have fared better in the brownlow count.
