Polly would not be involved with the stolen generation movement, he wanted nothing to do with politics.I've got this vague memory of some indigenous ppl not being happy with him for some reason way back in the late 80s. Can't for the life of me rem what it was about. Just rem it was discussed on 6pr. F'ing memory of a goldfish. Nvm.
Too bad theres limited footage from his playing days. Esp from the 50s and early 60s. Would make a great highlight reel.
Polly spoke about taking out Keith in the GF and always gave the impression that he regretted it a tad but made the point that it was a Grand Final and unfortunately for Keith, he was between Polly and the ball.Saves me looking, cheers.
No one I know ever suggested Polly was outside the law that day.
Keith Doncon, all Australian, oft overlooked in the era of Barry Cable & Billy Walker, up there with them ..went back to the farm.
Oh that's right. Cheers. Been bugging me.Polly would not be involved with the stolen generation movement, he wanted nothing to do with politics.
Polly + Chadwick + Tierney etc would have been mouthwatering. I think Mal Brown was at the Royals, and I can’t see him and Polly in the same team. Eddie Pitter would have been left out.East Perth were way ahead of kevin sheedy in playing indigineous footballers.Most probably my biggest regret was that when he came back from Victoria he played for west perth and not at east perth.would have loved to watch him every week play for us.
I think some people tried to dis-credit the work done by institutions like Sister Kate’s. Polly was very vocal in giving credit to the staff at Sister Kate’s for giving him an education and helping him along the way.Polly would not be involved with the stolen generation movement, he wanted nothing to do with politics.
Thats folklore with a twist of Vic:no one had dominated the ruck so absolute as Farmer did as a young player.
Tierney, Phil Tierney, you jest !! Polly left in 1961, Phil debuted in 1962, a lite (sic) version of Austin Robertson & Brown was still at school. Eddie in the same sentence as Polly, nope.Polly + Chadwick + Tierney etc would have been mouthwatering. I think Mal Brown was at the Royals, and I can’t see him and Polly in the same team. Eddie Pitter would have been left out.
As for the comment about Kevin Sheedy, charlatant is appropriate. Farmer & Brown at Souths, mentored the indigenous players long before the “backpocket plumber” cottoned onto the practice.
Mr McGowan, statue of Polly to the top of your agenda. Overlooking the river, looking towards East Perth Oval. Maybe in handpassing pose, with the ball heading towards East Perth ?.
I meant if Polly came back to East Perth, after his Geelong sojourn. That is why I listed those players.Tierney, Phil Tierney, you jest !! Polly left in 1961, Phil debuted in 1962, a lite (sic) version of Austin Robertson & Brown was still at school. Eddie in the same sentence as Polly, nope.
Chaddy could have played in Victoria but his main aim was the Aus Test side, went to NZ in a 2nd XI with Peter Bedford (what year did he win the Brownlow).
Farmer & Brown ?
IF you dont let them know you are kidding, BUT check out the attached IF thats what went to air, its achnowledged as being edited.Did anyone see the SBS piece on him? ******* insulting.
Pronounced Noongar incorrectly and said he played for 'WAFL clubs East Perth, West Perth, and Geelong.' What lazy syntax. Also said he won 10 Sandovers. Jesus christ. The state of media.
And this is a channel that has ads on it about how we all need to be a bit more sensitive when we ask the girl with the Asian name at work, where her family hail from.
