Absolute champion, the last Dockers player left from when I started following footy in 2003! Gonna leave a massive hole, but we have a ready made replacement in Darcy. Gonna be a sad night this weekend!

One of the few left from when i started following footy. Thanks for everything ! I Wonder what could've been if taking the ball out of the ruck wasn't considered prior for his whole career.

He was so underrated.
Even since 2015 when he has struggled to play games, he has managed just 27 where he played at least 70% game time. Freo won 14 of those 27 (51.2%). In the other games he did not play (or stay on ground at least 70%), Freo won 15 of the 59 (25.4%).

For years I have dreaded the day he retires.
Now I just wish him and his family all the best and Thanks for the memories 211.
A true giant of AFL in every regard.

There were seasons where you could predict with high accuracy whether Freo would lose. Basically Sandi out = Freo loss.
Without doubt the most influential player we have ever had. He may not have been a better player than pav, but no one was more important or had more time put into them by opposition coaches.
I'm going to miss him so much.

The best part is, going by the last few weeks, he's going out on the top of his game still
Seeya Sandi, one of the best rucks ever, seriously underrated for his ground ball work IMO
That tsp down to Hilly at Kardinya park in '13 yes
