[quote=paul]I think you are getting confused Dolphin, I mentioned Russell Gabriel and Paul Rogash could be future captains. Whelan has moved up north for work and is trying to figure out whether commuting is possible. If not it will be O&M.[/quote]
Pauly, I've been confused once or twice in my life, so I may have got that one wrong.

Wasn't meaning to imply anything negative. ;)

Your right, it wasn't you. It was this one :

[quote=dolphinarmy]Good question expat

Does the club go with a single captain or co-captains partnering a younger player set to move forward with the club with an older player who has experiance in the top job.

You have the likes of Paul Kennedy and Clint Proctor both have played 50+ Senior VFL games and at the top of what they do best.

Younger players that could lead well in the future

Dale Whelan - 4th season at frankston leads by example
Ben Crowe - Has captained senior local footy before bit of experiance
Mitch Bosward - 4th season at the club - leads by example

Just a few names i would throw up not many senior games played but when you have a list of players that havent played much over 20 games each doesnt seem to really matter

Lets hear your thoughts lads[/quote]

But having said that, Whelan is another big loss.

Not much a lub can do in those circumstances though.

That's ok Dolph, you just got me wondering if I was posting stuff in my sleep that I didnt remember!! You are right, Wheels would be a real shame if he goes - there are plenty of talls this year to cover but he is a very talented player with something to prove, as you say.

captain peanut

can confirm that whelan signed with wangaratta magpies last wednesday night. the rumour in O&M circles early in the year was that wang were on the verge of signing 2 blokes surname whelan from frankston but then there was nothing further for about 6 weeks until thurs just gone when they announced dale whelan's signing. they said he's moved to nth east vic for work

Shane Whelan has a pub in Bright so that may have helped him make his mind up...not sure if it's his son/nephew...but I'm pretty sure they are related somehow

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years
