    Pure champion, 100 plus games at two clubs and BnFs at both
    He came to us when we where awful and he was pure competitor when we didn’t have many
    He’ll always be one of my favourites and I’ll miss him as apart of the team. I hope he stays apart of the club in some form

    Love Bern. As others have said, no one wanted to come to us when he did and we won’t forget it.
    The day we do win a premiership, he will be as big a part of it as anyone for laying the foundations.

    His 2015 season was ******* brilliant, some of the posts on page 1 cap it off.

    What a fantastic pick up - was rapt when we got him in and didn't disappoint.

    Roosy commented on Jones' instagram post that Bernie coming to to the club gave us hope, and that's so true.

    Will always love Bernie, hope he sticks around in some capacity, will always have a special place in the MFC.

    God this sucks. I’m in denial. He’s been by far the most charismatic guy in our list since he became one of ours, and he gave us back our mojo. Thanks Bern for playing with a song in your heart and a smile on your dial. You were my favourite player and those moments when you took the ball and accelerated into an opponent are my all time favourite football memories.
    Thanks for everything you’ve done for the MFC.

    My greatest pet peeve in football. Doing VicKick 30 years ago we were told "you'll never make it unless you can use both sides of your body". And here we are now, lucky if 10% could use their opposite competently. :angry:

    Used to be just us lefties that were entirely one sided. Right footed jerk-offs are culturally appropriating my people!

    **** me, I played at a country team and most of the right footers had a passable left peg.

    I’m ambidextrous, except I had such poor motor skills as a child that the end result is more that I’m no handed rather than both handed

    It's just ridicolous how dangerous you can become when you can go both pegs as it opens up the field for you. What's the point of having 16 coaches when half the blokes skills never improve in the system.

    Off the top of my head

    Salem
    Petracca
    Viney
    Gawn
    Tyson
    Hibberd
    Kent
    Frost
    Tmac

    I can't imagine any of the blokes being accurate 10m away from there boot

    Left handers are clearly the superior of the species ... except for when it comes to writing/drawing with a pencil ... then all you get is ...

    I'm very ambidextrous by hand by not by foot at all.

    Salem is particularly bad. I've seen opposition players knowingly shut down his left hand side before he gets the ball, and it messes with him entirely. And I still have vivid nightmares of Tyson trying to kick off his right v Collingwood R23, 2017, and turning it over. Viney also useless on his right.

    Trac and Kent aren't that bad IMO, have seen them both put in decent oppo foot efforts.

    Which is why I've never really bothered learning to draw with my left. Didn't seem useful for this reason...until I broke my right arm.

    Should we ignore the fact that the hand in the pic is a right hand?

    That would probably be for the best.
