St Kilda probably would have 8 or 10 flags.I sometimes wonder what might have happened if he'd turned up for a run at another club & hadn't come to Hawthorn.
But I've just thought how the fit was perfect: through the hard years, a club craving recognition, identity, respect ... & a man of such character, learning and faith (w that booming voice & total commitment to the cause).
How lucky we were!
