Indigenous profiling?
He's our best small forward prospect since Davey. Its a meaningful number to the club. But by all means lets give hin 49. Lot of history there.
Lets keep throwing guys the history bone.

Maybe we can get Davey to present him the jumper, and have him wear the blazer.

I don't like this constant 33, 36, 39 for the Indigenous boys, and I'm tired of numbers that either were meaningful half a century ago or were worn by guys who never won a flag being handed out like they mean something.

Time to move forward.

Give him 15 or something.

Nothing wrong with exciting small forwards wearing a jumper we associate with exciting small forwards

Id like to see Jeremy Howe in the 24

Jesse Hogan in the 9

But really, Id like to see some blokes play well and I couldnt give a duck what they are wearing

Have to agree with you Show Some Fight and it's not just handing out numbers to indigenous guys. i was glad when Howe said he wanted to forge his own path with the 38 rather than change it to the 24 because he has similar attributes to Russell Robertson, just because we supporters think they are similar.

If it doesnt matter what number we give players based on history then why even make this thread?

To see who gets what number? I'm interested in the politics behind squad numbers personally, not the song and dance though.

Just throw them in a hat and pull them out that way then. Personally I love seeong a player live up to the number they are given. Can you think of anyone better than jones to wear Flower's 2? Players like being given a number that means something to the club. By all means give the new draftees nothing numbers until they earn their stripes but father/son prospects and established players deserve a number that represents what they mean to the club

The best numbers are obscure ones that players turn into their own eg Shuan Rehn's 52. Someone on the MB said supporters should get Velcro numbers with all the player movement to avoid ruined jumpers.

Did you guys see this?


Not sure if he's serious or not, would be strange for Jones to move after so long in the #2

Edit: especially after Flower passed so recently
