What's the old captain up to these days? It feels like he fell off the face of the Earth a bit.

Looking online, it seems he's an AFLW assistant coach at the Gold Coast. Up there with his brother.

Spitta did some work with ABC radio as special comments last year. Might have been coz of covid and he was in the area.

He was living in Byron Bay last I heard.

Despite his accolades was probably still not appreciated enough.

That super level of consistency he had wasn't some by-product of being a blue collar player or dumb luck.

He was cut from the Anthony Stevens, Peter Bell cloth of turning up to play every single time on game day.

Glad he's enjoying his life always had a lot going for him off-field (not just the obvious looks :sternlook) so not surprised but pleased to hear all the same.

Yep. Could have had a side career as a male model. Even after Hodge sniped him.
