    Couldn't agree more, players shouldn't have to live in the shadows of past players at least when it comes to numbers. Although father sons unfortunately will always have to. Viney is number #7 our captain and i wouldn't have it any other way

    That said if Viney had wanted the #12 i feel he would have taken it at the end of 2013 when it was vacated by Colin Sylvia

    Viney would be mad to change single digit numbers are the best.

    Low doubles are pretty good. Honestly at local footy was happy not to get ******* #55

    Anything above #40 is the best - particularly something ridiculously obscure - and you all know it deep down.

    Would like to see Tim Smith move to a better number - sneaky suspicion he will be playing a fair bit more footy in the 1s

    Agree with this. Particularly Preuss in 12 -he wants to learn from Max? Park him next to the big fella and make it happen.

    Needs to be promoted off the rookie list if he's going to change numbers. Should happen, I think.

    Don't give May #1. Just give it to some kid unless someone established like OMac wants a change like Harmes last year, just like we did with Spargo and Fritsch. Legacy numbers are a load of shit, half the fun is that they're random numbers that some guy makes great. Gawn is very much the exception to this rule IMO. Watts, Scully and Grimes were never able to adjust to the weight of the legacy we dropped on them.

    Not that it matters who wears what, but I'm feeling

    16 - Kolodjashnij
    23 - May
    32 - Preuss

    Trivial, but I’d like Weid to move down to 12.
    Then:
    1 - May
    23 - Kolodjashnij
    32 - Preuss

    Give 16 to a draftee.

    Or Weid to 1 ... make the replacement complete!

    His grandfather wore 1 for a fair portion of his career.

    I heard KK’s grandma wore 32 at lawn bowls, he’d have his eye on it I reckon

    I’m not sure what’s worse, the fact you suggested it, or the fact I know why.
