    Interesting, considering other veterans like MBoyd and Morris are continuing on.

    Can understand where he is coming from as he would have wanted to finish is career on a high but even if he did play in the grand final I still would of wanted Bob to continue on.

    Well your just going to have to retire after this year's Grand Final Bob. What a great incentive to go back to back for all our kids. The guru of the footy club's last year. Bevo will have a field day with that one during the 2017 finals series.
    One of the great moments in life is the sense of space and time you feel between taking a hanger and touching back down.

    By nature he's a fairly laconic type who has a ready made career for himself once he finishes playing. It doesn't really surprise me that he would have retired had he played in a winning GF side.

    Matthew Boyd might have a bit of media work ahead of him or maybe moving into a bit of coaching but I could see him taking 12 months off and spending it with his kids. I'm not sure what Morris might do after footy.
    I can see why they would want to stay on.
    Great. I need one more thing. Soda. Yeah, I don't want my guys paying for soda. I want you to stock my machine for three years. I'm serious.

    I would think given Boyd's study history, drive and leadership qualities he would probably be ripe for a consulting job somewhere post football.

    He might now. I know he earned a commerce degree.
