    I still think that Sam Power was one of the best handballers I had seen but he started to get worse after his second season to the extent he was regularly floating hospital passes by the time he left.
    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. "

    Power was a worse up and under kick than even Macrae

    But if we all judged administrators by their playing days, Bevo wouldn't have a flag
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Power was disappointing as a player for me by that I mean he wasn't as good as his brother (I had high expectations). But in saying that being better than a triple premiership player is no easy feat. Well I hope he isn't a disappointing list manager.

    All the best Sam and congratulations on the new job.

    No doubt, but I reckon it would've been preferable for Sam to have served his apprenticeship within a system that got better results. Not saying he'll be no good, but it's a bit like recruiting an assistant coach from a Carlton or a Gold Coast, you've just got to hope the individual is way better than the system he is coming from.

    Given his experience, he may come in with some very firm ideas as to what not to do from a list management perspective.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Yeah. Let’s hope he knows there is more to recruiting then just grabbing Giant’s players not good enough for a game in their ones!

    Have a listen at around the 38 minute mark, when in the segment immediately after Sam, Adi refers to him as Luke!

    Re: Sam Power appointed Dogs' new General Manager of List and Recruiting

    Good luck to Sam Power. Our current list clearly isn’t good enough and in need of a shake up. There has been an over emphasis on recruiting taller players at the expense of quality mid to smaller players who can impact today’s style of football. We also need greater emphasis on players with good kicking skills.
