From the 45min mark.

Caveats to be in the team
1. Average Skills but tried their hardest
2. Injury Prone
3. Left the club and became a better player
4. Was a part of a 'dockery' trade

You should be ashamed having Shane Parker in there. You only have to hear Pav talk about him to understand the esteem in which he is held.

One bad kickout against Richmond seems to be remembered more than him battling and beating key forwards most weeks. Easily in our best 22 ever.

Agreed.

Parker was a Tremendous player for our club.

D. Parker = Yes, S. Parker - Blasphemy ( he is a legend in my eyes, gave 100% )

McManus = had his moments, but never a dud ( 100% man )

Clive = you should be struck down with lightening !!!!!.

Please add Collard, Anderson & Hargreaves.

Sylvia neither tried his hardest, nor was he injury prone, just lazy and never came close to trying hard enough for us.

I feel like the definition of a Dockery Docker wasn’t right. Clive and Kepler are up there with the ultimate Dockery Dockers. Enigmatic, marvellous and excruciatingly frustrating all in one package. A player you love but drives you mad at the same time.

he was actually half decent at freo
Had one decent year in 97. Kicked 32 in 12 games or something. Rest of the time he was average. Kicked a **** load of points, but had a great mark.

Not sure how well liked he was back in the day with the players..
