BUMP!

Thread title changed.

The title change was inspired by this article from the AFL website and reproduced with permission by the AFL NSW/ACT website.

Seem to remember posting about Bob Spargo who turned his back on the VFL for a better offer in WA & stood out of footy for a year (in that era so did Syd Jackson to get to the Blues & watne Richardson to get to the Pies). This bloke could play :thumbsu:
For the record:

Now for some father/son possibilities with fathers teams in bold and fathers in italics.

Little bump.

WESTERN Bulldogs debutant Fergus Greene is your classic late developer, with the forward barely on recruiters' radars heading into the 2016 NAB AFL Draft.

Strong footballing pedigree is also in Greene's favour, with uncle Brendan Hartney playing 23 games with Carlton during the 1980s.

there are no other teams worthy
Peter Bosustow uncle of Brett Allison ?
Peter's Dad played for Carlton too. Same jumper number too but Buzz did not even know at time his Dad wore same number and he only found out some time later his Dad wore number 4 too.

Matthew Scarlett nephew of Bruce Doull and think Matthew's father was John Scarlett , before my time.

Some relations less sure of.
So many Garlett's around and I am sure they are related to Buddy Franklin too.

Jarrod Pickett related to Byron Pickett. Probably his uncle. Leon Davis cousin of Jarrod.
