    I didn't believe it either until I checked the table.

    Let that sink in: the bloke who sits third on our all-time goalkicking list was our leading goal kicker in only one season.

    Edit: my mistake, it was two. 1990 and 1994. Still, astounding.

    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

    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.

    Two of them were teammates of EJ at some point in their careers. The last one is well before EJs time.

    Alby Morrison-The first Kingsville boy to star on a footy field would be one I reckon.


    Alan Rait was pretty good but only played a couple of years so I will go with the other star forward from those days and say Bill Wood. Norm Ware?

    Who are we? I kicked 7 goals on debut for our great club and the player forever linked with me never played a senior game.

    6 players in our history measured up as over 200cm (ie. 201cm and higher). Who are they?

    Having looked up the answer I can tell you that Street and English are correct.

    Bandy. Ayce Cordy. I'm stretching hard now. I'm assuming they're newer age players with this height.

    I always thought Tom Boyd was 202cm.
    Does Roughy make it or is he just on 200cm? Trenners is 197cm.

    I'll say Minson and Nick Bruton (I that's the ruck who is the most unco player we ever had on our list?)
