    I can't remember which interview, but Fyfe once said that he credited a bit of his success to players like Suban, who would often run with his man so that he can be more attacking and able to take risks.

    Could it be that Suban is a fall boy. Maybe. Anyway he is a decent enough player to last in the league for 150 games, so good job and I hope he has a great game.

    Really hope we can pinch a win against the budgies to help him celebrate.

    We picked him up with the pick we got for the Robbie Warnock trade IIRC. 150 gamer says we probably won that trade.

    Some great names on here. And Suban's will be too!

    Must be from 2016 so not sure if we welcomed more last year?

    Anyway, hope we lift and beat the Egirls

    Yeah, they were massive. It wasn't so much his ability, but his on field attitude and instant 'team first' mentality that I think caught many people's eye. I always had my doubts only because he just didn't seem like a naturally 'smart player' - but certainly thought he'd turn into something we see in Neale for example - a more often 'up' than 'down' type performer. 150 games later, and he's done OK in the circumstances, but obviously nothing like many of us thought.

    Pretty sure he mentioned that in his Brownlow winning speech!

    Suban has been a decent role player. However, there has been no game I can think of that he's dominated. Much like others on here I think I had higher hopes for him when he was drafted - thought he'd be a future captain. Ive spoken to him a few times, particularly in his younger days, kind of quiet but well spoken lad. Complete opposite to his raging white line fever attitude he seems to have on the field.

    In saying that, he must have impressed all the coaches who have selected him to reach 150 games - something more than the fans do - so it's a credit to him.

    Well done Subes. I look forward to Jack coming through the ranks too.

    He's a trooper.Has been integral to the rise in our club's credibility.
    It's not the size of the dog in the fight.Never forget the day he demolished the two main Geelong playmakers in one afternoon of Subernation.
    Completed the fastest and most comprehensive man-marking job in the history of modern footy by propelling Joel Selwood into Ballas head.
    Probably rehearsed and the result was:
    Subes v J.Selwood rnd 14 2017:Selwood 0 touches of any description after the warm up.
    Mission accomplished he moved seamlessly to Dangerfield and crushed him for three quarters.
    Racked up a lazy 18 possies and a goal as an afterthought himself.
    A little scrapper who gives his all.

    EDIT:The infantryman himself,questioned by idiots.

    150 AFL games is a fantastic achievement no matter how you look at it. Well done Subes.

    Go back and watch his game against Essendon? (Late in the season) in his first year. It's a shame. Such a waste playing him as a scragger so much of his career, just because he put in more effort defensively than others.

    Lyoned.

    I'm going to admit - I'm a Suban fan. In his 150 games at Freo he's been an integral part of our first grand final and acknowledged as being a big part of our first Brownlow winner. Sure he's had ups and downs, but those ups can be match winners.

    Off field he's given us #mymatenick and been a serial pest on Docker TV.

    On field - I've gone youtubing and found some highlights for you all to remember the good times and why he's earned life membership. Thanks Subes for a great 150 games so far! And hopefully an amazing F/S in little Jack Suban in 17 years time!

    That left boot!

    Sounds a bit like the comment Judd made about the Eagles "whipping boy", Rowan Jones.

    One player blocks and does the dirty work, another player thrives due to the freedom it gives them.

    Congratulations Subes. 150 games is a huge achievement. Easily in our top 2 players who've worn No. 8.

    I must say he has definitely been one of my scapegoats in the past two years.

    But he actually started off as probably my favourite player. I loved the way he played, his left boot and he has provided some great highlights for us. I was convinced he was going to be a captain one day

    Congrats to him.

    Does anyone know which game it was that Subes did his infamous 'head first tackle'?

    Interesting he had 5 tackles on the day. Wonder if that head-butt attempt counted? And/or if it made it into the 'pressure acts' category? It deserves some sort official recorded recognition.

    I remember shouting out "oh my god, he's killed himself!"

    Very dramatic.
