I said it a few months ago, other said it too, it was said again tonight, he was ahead of his time.

As a kid you hated him because he was so good and made it harder for your team, as an adult you realised his greatness made him so good.

The word champion is used far too often but not in this case.
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

Brilliant night of footy reflection, Michael Taylor was a hero of mine growing up going to Norwood games with Dad, onto Nicky Winmar who was such a natural exciting footballer to watch as a neutral then Boomer Harvey who was just amazing to support over the years. Then the emotional induction of Russell to finish - great night and credit to the organisers.

So many absolute champions not in there yet with much more illustrious careers.


I couldn’t disagree more with your thoughts if I tried.

100% deserves to be in. Had he played for one of the bigger clubs he would have got the accolade he deserved.

Spot on Winmar was a gun.

Hated Port but Ebert is a difficult man to even dislike.
