Still a catchy tune!

Yep, still a catchy tune, but what a sad year. No wins for Camberwell in its last VFA season. The current VFL has none of the passion or interest of the VFA.

At least they were having a crack promoting the competition back then. None seen these days.
Athol Hodgetts was a Tasmanian who played a few games for North Melbourne then Coburg.
After his playing days he became marketing manager at Carlton & was the man who had the brainwave to rename Prince's Park to Optus Oval. Major sponsorship in those days involving many $$$$.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
