Was B+F At his club 4 years agoNowhere near the influence Cox had on his team.
Sandilands’ career is pretty underwhelming to me.
Good at palming ..but hands of rubber while marking.
Played 5 years too many..
Of course he dominated, he was taller than everyone else and was a s**t mark.I first saw him play in a pre-season practice game against my mob, when we were really good. He dominated, even though he was only a kid. I thought it should have been against the rules that a player could be that tall, and have that advantage over other ruckmen, whom he made look like midgets.
For those who don't rate him, to play as many games as he did (no idea how many, but it was more than a few), with such distinction, made him an unlikely, yet elite, athlete.
Well played that man. He certainly made the most of his talent and rare physique.
Really? Name a ruck who averages more contested marks over his career. Only NicNat is close as current player (and he cannot take uncontested marks). For uncontested marks he is obvioulsy beaten by those more mobile rucks who get a lot of possessions.Good at palming ..but hands of rubber while marking.
Wonder who will carry him off at the end Not sure there would be anybody big and strong enough lol!Got the best from his body, gentle giant and highly respected in the AFL community.
He stayed on this year to tutor (mentor) Sean Darcy, and now I think he can see that his job is done. He will quietly wander off to his lawnmower.
Will get a good send off on the weekend, by both clubs supporters.
Is Freo sponsored by a forklift company ?.Wonder who will carry him off at the end Not sure there would be anybody big and strong enough lol!
The game won't be the same without the big unit. When he first came on the scene thought he was just all size and no talent but over the years he proved many of us wrong.
Classless in a retirement thread of a 4x AA who has played nigh on 300 games.Of course he dominated, he was taller than everyone else and was a s**t mark.
Imagine a 7ft tall Wayne Carey.
I have so much love for the big fella. Loved when he played angry, but we seldom saw it (unless you're Paul Puopolo)
I posted these on the freo board and I think most sets of fans will appreciate them:
I'm devastated.Classless in a retirement thread of a 4x AA who has played nigh on 300 games.
I can't wait till you get bounced in straight sets (again) by Richmond and Collingwood at MCG 'home' finals. Going to genuinely piss myself with laughter.
Madden, Nicholls, Michael, Moss, Fitzpatrick, Farmer, early Salmon and the like played in the carnival era when AA may have only been every 4 years, the yearly AA didn't start until about '91, iirc.There is Dean Cox
Then other guys with Multiple looks are Simon Madden, Paul Salmon, Max Gawn, John Nicholls and Graham Farmer, Ok list, Still didnt make it as much times as Sandi
