Seeing that Jason Bevan, from South Adelaide, who played 2 games for Collingwood in 1996 died last year at age 39 was a surprise. Confirmed by CollingwoodForever, but no article on the website, as far as I can see. Father of 3.

I'm gonna call them anyway see what they say.
Rodgers believes about 15 years ago they finally identified him - he *thinks* through a football record shoutout.

We may want to flag this one with a question mark - making sure that the William Edwards details are correct
Yes this appears to be the William Edwards who played for Richmond. You can add to the list

Just finished updating these DODs. I have also updated the DB so these records should now appear in the "On This Day" page too...
