That 2014 game versus Brisbane where it was Sam Gray over Butcher requires a trigger warning.
This came across to me at the time like a (slightly) politically-motivated selection.

The post-match speech from Koch and Co. were really spruiking the Port Magpies junior SGray finally getting a run in the AFL squad and starring.

I don't mind Gray as a player on his day, but truthfully Gray would have to be the luckiest player of not get dropped given his actual output in the Hinkley era.

My partner is a teacher at a school that Ebert went to. She doesn't follow footy, but loves Russell Ebert. Apparently extremely engaged, knows the going ons inside of schools and a genuinely caring guy. Legend!
Nice to hear. I'm so glad he came back to the club years ago. It was very sad when he was estranged from the club.

I have to say I'm not a fan of our white jersey guernsey, but worn with black shorts it looks okay:





Is it true that the silver number is going to be this year's official clash jumper, or has this just been assumed when they made the white the JLT jumper?

yep they swapped the away/clash and pre-season jumpers around this year.
