    Not at all. Despite being slim he was well regarded for his defensive work.

    It didnt help that two had tib/fib breaks - I think Blease and Strauss would actually have worked under Goody... but they were already dead.

    Strauss perhaps. I don't think Blease was ever even close to looking like resembling possibly approaching anything close to a player.

    Yeah lots of wishful thinking I reckon. Just remember, Barry, Blease, Tappy etc couldn't break into our senior side when we were one of the worst outfits in the history of the VFL/AFL.

    Barry Prendergast just totally screwed us. Anyway, the wheel has turned and we now have a recruiter who is a gun.

    Yeah he belted a couple randoms on a bender a little while back. Loved him as a player but he's a fair shit campaigner I think

    Legit could be the worst player ever drafted, he was Hunt with zero footy ability. Couldn't kick for shit couldn't win contested an couldn't mark. He was terrible

    I remember when we beat the bombers on a Friday night under Bailey and the engine room of Scully, Trengove and Gysberts was being touted as a 10 year midfield combo.

    I remember at u18 level he wouldn't get a lot of the ball but would kick a good running goal and you'd think 'shit this guy can play'. Just never improved from that.

    haha Tom Gilles would be contending with Isaac Weetra, Jace Bode, Troy Davis and David Cockatoo Collins as the worst MFC player I've ever seen.

    Good luck to him nonetheless.

    Fantastic, I came into this thread just hoping someone had posted this article. What a laugh... If the hawks got Gillies instead of Lake he still would have played VFL and they would not have 3 peated...

    Faking an injury because he didn't like were he was picked sums him up, they were probably trying to boost his confidence and instead he gave up.

    Anyone know when happened to Ben Newton? I could've sworn he sold me a Volkswagen Caddy about 2 months back. It was an AHG dealership...

    Nathan Carroll is working with a mate of mine up in the mines.
    Apparently he is a pretty funny type of bloke, but is pretty loose and has some funny stories

    Same for me and Chris Judd. I could have been a premiership captain with the West Coast Eagles, but they ended up taking Chris Judd with pick 3 and, well, the rest is history. Every time I spy into Chris and Rebecca's house from the bushes, I can't help but think, "that could've been me".
