Love the kid’s attitude.

As much as some folks would prefer if Stevo was spending the 10 weeks self flagellating himself up and down Olympic Boulevard and begging forgiveness from anybody wearing a black and white beanie ...

... his infectious optimism around the club is likely a tad more useful.

My respect for him is growing. The kid is made of really stern stuff. Will be a champion for years to come.

What’s done is done.

No body can change the past so all we have is a star ready to slay them come finals time.

That simple.
Speaking of the past ...One night this week was listening to SEN and they had Brian Wilson on and he was discussing when he was 25/1 for the Brownlow. Crackers Keenan and a few other players backed him and he was relating how in the last couple of games they kept on kicking or handballing to him so he could get votes.

Those were the days.:D

Interesting. On field, since day one, he has demonstrated the stuff of a future champion. Then this. Even off-field he is impressing you. I tend to think he is the modern professional footballer and what we see off-field is as much a part of his champion performance as on-field. I am with you, see a champion developing, just can't resolve why the hell he'd risk it all and why he would for a moment think that was ok.

That's great to hear. I've seen him at training the last few weeks, and he looks motivated and full of energy. Saw him at the VFL on Saturday and he is helping out and supporting where needed.

I get the impression he’s a generally positive type of person anyway
