Favourite Bernie moment was when we were garbage and had to play Adelaide over in Adelaide when they were quite good.

He went straight to Dangerfield and scragged him all day in front of a hostile crowd. We lost but played really well given the gulf in talent between the two teams. Made me proud to be a Melbourne supporter after 10~ years of being a joke.

I was at that game.

During the game I couldn't work out why Vince was getting boo'ed so hard (mind you my mate and I had knocked back a lot of beers). It wasn't until later that night watching the highlights we worked out why the crowd was so hostile towards him

My main memory from that game was Watts shirking a marking contest in the middle of the ground and Taylor Walker absolutely giving it to him

I remember Danger sooking to the umpires all day.

The other great thing about Bernies game that day was him winning a great clearance and kicking in the wrong direction. Hilarious stuff. I loved it

It's great cause even 5 years ago I remember thinking he'd get pinged for it because that games soft.

Imagine how much sh*t he'd cop now for the same game

He could have been anything Bernie, certainly wasn’t lacking the talent. One of those ones where I’d take one year of Bernie over Matt Crouch’s entire career any day
