I had to smile at this post on the port power board on sept 9th:

"But with a piece of individual brilliance, Power-listed key forward Billy Frampton miraculously threw the ball onto his boot just as it was about to cross the boundary line in the Eddie Betts pocket at Adelaide Oval and it landed in the grateful arms of fellow forward Todd Marshall in the goalsquare. I will never, ever refer to the North-Eastern pocket of Adelaide Oval by this term.
It will now be known as the Billy Frampton pocket. "

I'm actually surprised that it didn't come up years ago. Only 4 of them have played 100+ games for St Mary's.
I reckon they probably did reach it at least a little while earlier - Dean isn't on the list and I'm pretty sure he played a bit of footy up there after finishing with Essendon.
