Honestly, if you are Selwood and Hawkins, is there really a better way to go out than with a flag? It isn't like they are on big money keeping them going around for another year.

If they still enjoy playing AFL, why retire? I think “retiring on top” is an overrated notion if the player is still enjoying the game.

You go until the wheels fall off. But as soon as they do fall off you need to make the call. Cough Jack Zeibell cough.

Hawkins is not built on speed. He’s a strength and bullocking forward. Could go on another couple years.

At that money the pick going back would surely have to be a 20s range 2nd rounder. At best.
No way you convince someone to take on that coin for him and give back late first.

I get that but if you’re still capable and enjoying playing the game you love, why not keep going? Once you’re done, you’re done, I’m a believer that you go until you simply can’t anymore.

Yep, expected to be announced at 1pm today. He’s the greatest Geelong man ever, going to be strange with him not leading the boys out next season.

Unreal career.
If this is a retirement announcement for Joel Selwood, what a way to go out. Not only his career that has been fabulous but he showed what a great leader he is over the last week.

I read this story yesterday.
