    I reckon that when they started to call Callan Ward Cement Head because he ain't the sharpest tool in the shed Lindsay would have done a little air punch to celebrate...
    I thought they called him 'cement head' because he was a human battering ram and was always diving headfirst into packs?

    What about the story of him sliding off the roof of his house and how he liked to try and trip over players at training with which the coach wasn’t pleased. ( were they true ?)
    Cement head was a very fitting nickname in the way of his hard football and his stupid antics, pretty sure he has well and truely grown out of it now.
    Much like our Doug he was a cheeky lovable kid.

"No Lindsay, the idea is THEY will be giving YOU $250"


    Lindsay Gilbee is the funniest man alive.
    Thank you so much for sharing that.

    Hrovat will dominate playing VFL level full time. He doesn't have to worry about promotion or being dropped and he can just play.

    He will win the Liston trophy. I wonder if they have a market for that this early on?

    Funny you should say that. Straight after he was told he wasn't going to be offered another contract he did a sit down interview with one of the North media staff for a good ten minutes (actually just under 14 mins) and it was a great open honest chat.

    Hrovat mentions that he was often caught between no mans land being first emergency for the seniors and would often miss playing any competitive footy at all and when he did play it was often very last minute and couldn't put his best foot forward due to the lack of regular footy.

    It was a really good chat and worth a listen.

    For those interested below is the link to the video.

    I've seen other interviews where he expresses how grateful he is for the opportunities football has given him, he's 25 with a house and a partner who still gets to play competitive footy on the weekend and spend his time in a club environment he enjoys.

    I reckon he's doing well for himself and on top of that he seems like a genuinely likable guy.

    I liked him he just had limitations on the field which obviously hasn’t followed him in his future career, good in him.
