    I cant imagine what getting that sort of racial animus would do to your will to play but I'd imagine it would be pretty deflating.

    Whilst I agree with you, declines can come quick, I don't think goodes is a great example because of the extenuating circumstances there.

    I think if anything it made him even greater in my eyes. The fortitude it must have taken to get out there every week and not only play but play really well and lead by example to the backdrop of boos and hatred... what an absolute champion.

    Should get 900 this week.

    If he keeps up his average scoring rate, he'll end the regular season on 923 goals, just behind Matthew Lloyd

    With finals, you'd expect him to overtake him and finish the year 7th on the top goalkickers of all time.

    Obviously when he does kick the 1000 everyone will be allowed to storm the field?

    The question of whether it will be allowed is irrelevant. It will happen regardless!

    I see you're a believer of the magic scarf.

    god no, not a loon

    I just have a drink of water after every goal, sit with one leg folded, wear lucky socks, same t shirt under my guernsey every week and not eat while the games on

    I just noticed that he's played 101 games for the swans.

    Father/Son Rivalry with the Dawks incoming in the next 30 years.

    RW you have 30 years notice.

    If the rumours are true (i.e. 100 in 100), he's probably got enough offspring to fully populate both lists!

    He's a dead set champion mate, I have no problems with the Bud, he gave us everything at Hawthorn.

    I hope he has delivered for you guys too. 1000 puts him right up there with the greats and his ability to run around like a rover makes him super special.
    Love watching him, except when you beat us. Ha ha.

    Why do I get the feeling this is going to be one of those disastrous games where we're looking forward to Buddy's 900th, and he goes goalless and we lose...
