    Re: Can Fletcher Roberts bounce back and take a key role in Defence?

    Fletcher did some very important things late in both the PF and GF. Go well for the rest of your career.

    I was pretty petrified when Fletch was tagged as the man to come in when Suckling went down injured in 2016 but he squeezed out every drop of ability he had in those two weeks and stood up when we needed him the most. Well done on your career, you’ll go down as a Bulldogs Immortal.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    There's 300+ game players that aren't on the mailing list for premiership re-unions. Not Fletch. He's a premiership player, he's played 50+ AFL games and 100+ VFL games. He's set himself (& his family up for life) in the process.

    Hopefully the rumoured interest in him from GCS comes to fruition and he can top up his superannuation.

    This will be one of my enduring memories of Fletcher, doesn't get more clutch than this!
    Wake me up when we get to heaven, let me sleep if we're going to hell

    Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath

    And we all found heaven - 2016 Premiers!

    Definitely one I could enjoy seeing in another team’s colours, knowing he gave us his all.

    I think realistically there are a limited number of places for delisted AFL players in the VFL if they aren't trying to get back onto an AFL list. They would mostly be older guys with some sort of assistant coaching role looking to transition (like Jordan Russell). For the majority if their AFL dream is over they can make much more cash in the suburban/country leagues.

    I personally know of a recently delisted AFL player (reasonably well known but far from a star) with a significant asking price.

    I was at that game but left during the start of the last quarter as we had a match on at Marvel. When Roberts kicked that goal, the cheer squad were chanting Roberts' name.

    That was a great moment, I'll also remember it forever. Yay Fletch, you stepped up when it counted.

    His prelim in sydney was the very best game he ever played. Delivered when it mattered. Good luck to him wherever he goes from here

    That VFL premiership changed our club's culture. Without that booming kick in 2014 I don't think that we would have done (AFL, AFLW, 2016 VFL premiership) all the rest and was predicated on that one kick.
