Its great to reflect on a trade where we won hands down.

Wish we had more Andy Collins - Shaun Grigg trades

Im going to miss him. He was a big part of our rise from those dark days.
Was the worst possible trade for Andy Collins. He left us as a handy player and Carlton destroyed his career.

Yep, he took a while to grow on me but his ability to find space on the outer wing and hit up Jack was brilliant.
Incredibly reliable and had plenty of smarts about him.

Bloody shame we’ll never seen our Premiership 22 play together again.
Cheers Grigga.

Never thought he reached handy with us and it did nosedive at the blues.

There just seemed to be alot of love on the board and at the ground for him.

How many good ex Carlton players have we picked up

Grigg, Bond and Ricky McClean seems to be it.

Well done Grigga, respect......
you helped us win a flag, you stuck it up a few, you probably could go around again but your taking one for team again to give/keep a young star a go and help list management.... The ultimate team man, loved by all.

You can add Megan Gale to that list

Listening to his farewell the one thing that came through striong was his respect for Dimma and what he means to the players “you’ve always got our back “. Was the only time he struggled to get through that.

Well done to Grigga not one of my favourite players to watch but a great clubman and important character around the club. Along with Cotch and Dimma I think he’s been a very stabilising figure for Dusty

Shaun Grigg - respect, excellent utility player and great clubman.:thumbsu:
Always performed well in whatever role he was asked to play.
Tough and consistent performer.
His retirement allows the Tigers to use a mid-season draft pick.
Loyal and selfless to the end - like the Tigers of old, strong and bold.
Hope he can overcome his injuries so he can enjoy his life after football.
