    May he hit more targets as an administrator than he did with the boots on.

    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.

    Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
    The lonely nights
    Dreaming of a song
    The melody
    Haunts my reverie
    And I am once again with you
    When our love was new
    And each kiss an inspiration
    But that was long ago
    And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

    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.

    Indeed. For that matter Jmac wasn't exactly Hayden Bunton.

    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!
