Yeah Wally, it seems so, and that's fine. Like those before him who have used our club as nothing but a stepping stone, he can frankly bugger off. Sorry if that opinion upsets some, but that's how I see it. This isn't just a feeder competition for those wanting to play in the AFL, and our club has tradition and history that deserve better than that, as do all the standalone clubs.

Well said AJ - I agree with you wholeheartedly. I was down there a couple of weeks ago, you have a lot to be proud of at your club and a lot going for you.

Unfortunately though loyalty in society in general is dying and football clubs are also not immune to this. The amount of players that would have put on our (Frankston and Port and other stand alone clubs) proud jumpers without feeling that sense of pride is disappointing. Sadly the notoriety has dwindled for ex vfa stand alone clubs and for many in their mistaken eyes we are just another club.

Agree with what you guys are saying but I dont think we should judge him too harshly just yet. We dont know the reasons why he's stepped away, although quitting two state league clubs in a few months is a worry and may point to motivation issues, and we dont know how his latest hamstring injury has affected him. Who could blame him if thats finally got to him?

Very frustrating for supporters though - we have waited years for the club to get a player of his calibre and to lose him like this is hard to cop.

He is quoted as saying he is not interested in playing at state league level again unless it's for a club with a chance at winning a premiership.....hmm.....forgive me if I hold onto my judgment ;)
