That 58 flag stopped the Demons run to equal our 4peat. They could have won 6 on the trot. I think, in perspective, he was the most important captain of his time. A true hero, not just of the club, but the VFL as a whole.

RIP Murray. Thanks for everything on and off-field. A real testament to him that despite retiring at 27 he's still so fondly remembered for his on-field efforts.

Without Murray, I'm not alive today. My dad was born in early July (2 weeks later than he was due) in 1959, and my pa was a lunatic Pies fan. Go figure... ;)
The ultimate celebration. Good to know your pa also kicked a goal that day. Do you know what position he was. Hahaaa!

My late father was at the 58 GF with his under 18 club. Always spoke very highly of ‘The Weed.’

Tried to find his famous run in the 1964 GF on Youtube but couldnt find it. It was a classic, up there with Manassa's 1977 GF replay run and Mick McGuanes 1994 7 bounce goal of the year.

here you go - from about the 6 min mark

PS - switch off after Gabo's goal, you may become somewhat sad - I did from standing room in the old Northern Stand :(

I do remember a banner in 1976....one of the wittier ones I have seen. Weidemans Collingwood v Bob Roses Footscray.

The banner read.... “weeds kill roses”.

Unfortunately we lost that game as we did many in 1976.... it wasn’t a highlight in the Weeds career!!!
