thanks tas, i knew his brother was a good player as he played at central districts but i've only heard that todd is this & that but i wanted to get a description of someone who has seen him play, i'd 'suggest' he is in the top 3 or 4 getting paid at glenelg, the main two reasons we beat central for him is we got him a 'decent' job & salary :wink: we will be a serious chance to go top in 2008 which i would of thought impossible 3 years ago

He is a player who is hard to describe how he plays but he is definetely talented Seems there are a lot of Tasmanians over there now with Callinan at Central Good luck to Glenelg for the coming year - like to hear of a team that has been able to come back from a long way - Tasmanians love an underdog!!

No worries - I have a soft spot for Glenelg as my brother lives there (works as a crew chief on a rescue helicopter over in SA) I do not know a lot about SA footy except that it is known as a strong league which attracts a lot of players, I remember watching the Grand Finals on ABC the week after the AFL Grand Final Cheers

Bayman, sorry to go off topic, Has Ben Kane and Sam Rudolph saigned with the Bays again? Saw them play a fair bit for Box Hill, both were very talented footballers, Ben, I believe was unlucky not to be still playing at the higher level.
