When I'm in the old folks' home waxing lyrical to my grandkids about how good Dale Morris was and how he played the whole finals series in the famous 2016 year with a broken back I bet the little shits won't believe me.
Moz is an absolute gentleman, he has all the time in the world for supporters, he is so tough and yet fair on the ground, immaculate as a citizen. He will always be one of my all time favourites, sitting next to Granty and Johno.
Dale Morris is a true champion. Relentless, dogged in defence, ruthless at the contest yet he always displays fair play with an incredible sense of sportsmanship that is lacking in today’s professional, comercialised environment. Every now and then you meet someone who makes you stop and think, I could be a better person if I followed this blokes lead. He is one, Chris Grant is another. It has been a privilege for me to watch these blokes as I grew from a young kid to an adult.
Dale Morris is a terrific human being who displays integrity, grit and resilience. He will be sorely missed and I am thankful that I got to see him play. He is another champion of the bulldogs, up there w Grant, Boyd and Johnno. In years to come, I will tell my girls that I had the pleasure and privilege to watch.
Thanks Dale, you’re a star mate. Good luck w the recovery.
