Absolutely love Tex - champion bloke, deserves a flag more than any. Wouldn’t worry about the lowlifes digging the boot in mate, they could only dream of having your character while they are curled up in their room in their parents house being particularly useless. Bigfooty and anonymity in general brings out the worst in people, otherwise gutlessly hidden from view face-to-face.

I'm going to miss his ability to completely trigger the media and opposition fans by literally just existing.
Unfortunately, those segment of the “media” and “opposition fans” are still going to keep existing. They just would turn it into something else to pick on. You just know it to be true..

The way he led the team after Phil Walsh is an absolute testament to the man.

Well done. Go well in 2020

Taylor Walker was an absolute stand out as captain of the crows, during really challenging times, and has unfairly copped so much over the past few years, really unacceptable bullying in my mind, especially from certain media and opposition club supporters. He has stood tall and given his best throughout it all, so sorry that we never managed ultimate success under his leadership.

I hope he now has a chance to play some great footy, get himself fit and not have to play injured all the time!

Fantastic news on the family front too, life goes on....

What a superstar he is. Stepped up into the role when we needed him, carried us almost all the way to the top, and then bowed out gracefully when his time was done. Put us on his back during the Phil Walsh years. He's a ripper, and hopefully this is the start of a resurgence in his career :thumbsu:

And we're blessed to have Sloane already in the saddle to take over the duty full time.

Probably. I remember his post-GF speech and short and sweet but I don't remember it being disrespectful. Someone on here a while back mentioned that they heard a rumour that Tex and Lever had a push and shove in the rooms in half-time
Interestingly though, Pendlebury gave an almost identical speech a year later and no one batted an eye lid.

If only someone was around to document every goal of his career in a series of videos...
