Fantastic stuff. Just read on the Lions website the good news about the new 2 year contract for Mitch. First thing that came to mind was to jump on here to read Gadzorks reaction. It's not up yet :(


edit: The Man of the Hour is in the house. Well done Gadzorks & a big thank you for your tireless campaigning.

I missed it - just saw it now. So happy for the guy. Was heading for a rough life and dragged himself up to a pretty damn fine one through sheer strength of character. And now with rip through it he is showing the wider AFL community that he deserves to be considered a champion of the game.

Hope there are kids out there that can see his life as an example of moving on from the mistakes of youthful stupidity.

An associate met Mitch at a Sherwood FC thing and, knowing zip about the Lions, said he was the most pleasant character, esp with kids.

Better still, a Tassie product from a club (Lauderdale) well known for high standards.

The thing is, not too long ago he was often one-out doing the hard yards. Now, he is but one among many.

We could do much worse than provide him with an after- AFL playing career. From so called last chance saloon to a role model.

Gr8 news. The best.

A colleague said same after Robbo attended his son's footy clinic down here. Absolute pleasure to meet and fantastic with the kids.

there's a lightness in my step right now! absolutely awesome news. Not just happy for Mitch but the rest of the boys too, he adds so much to the Lions as a whole.

this moment (from 1:03 onwards) is my all-time favourite moment from him.

Happy to admit how wrong I was when I was adamant that he'd be a bad pickup for us. Love what he brings to the table.

Awesome news! A true enforcer and harder than a cats head. The ultimate team player is Mitch. An absolute warrior that puts his body on the line every minute of every game. He is a bloke that you would just love playing with and hate playing against. He is also a great character and I would imagine he would light up the change rooms. Hopefully you can eventually retire with a premiership medal around your neck Robbo.
