    Correct.
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Marcus and Liam have Jonathan Brown as a cousin and I suspect Cuchullain as an ancestor.

    In the story it mentions that he "felt no pain" I wonder if he was a lepor? Lepor's have trouble with their nerve endings and don't have the ability to feel pain. You could cut their arm off and they would only notice if they looked.

    Glad to hear he was out kicking footys.

    Young Teddy Richards goes a bit like Picko for mine - no doubt Liam's spending time at the club assisting with the development with some of our younger players, having played many spots on the park and against some of the best midfielders around.

    He reminds me of Picko, I've said it to a few people.

    No doubt about him, a Representitive to be proud of. Part of me feels like he has done enough, for long enough and I just want him to feel OK about hanging up the boots, knowing he embodies everything we admire in a footballer at our Club. He paid the price, can go and enjoy his family life even more.

    But, that's not how he is, I suspect he'll slog it out again before the end of the year. He deserves the most rapturous applause we can muster in his return.

    Yep will be a huge applause when he returns to senior footy.

    He is as tough as they come and was instrumental in our 2016 premiership success. Will never forget the goal he kicked in the last term in the 16 grand final.

    A great example of what made Picko great. His epic work rate combined with a surprising amount of skill & nous (that kick was literally cm perfect).
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.
