I was there too. He barely said 10 words. I think it was Billy Brownless who asked: "Max, weren't you wearing that suit last night?"Max brought massive physical mid field presence to compliment a pretty tough team around the ground (Chappy, Mooney, Milburn, Hunt, Scarlett). Even though the Port mids in 2007 GF actually got quite a lot of possessions they were ineffective, in part due to Max throwing himself at them.
