    Going to have a big year. Well done Tom, enjoyed that interview. Some good insights there.

    Strength
    2016 Premiers: The Western Bulldogs!
    What a final series, what a day, what a team, what a coach!
    How good was that?
    I will tell you, the greatest premiership in the history of the AFL.

    Realise it’s not the OPs title but that’s one ill informed title that they’ve run with for this update on Tom.
    Unfortunately it’s not an illness that can be just turned off, managed yes but he will need to continue the fight.

    He's all of that and more. I'm really hoping that he has a big season in 2019.

    Would love Tom to “stick it right up ‘em” (doubters and media idiots). A thoughtful, eloquent and intelligent chap. I reckon’ if he can manage the mental and physical challenges and if our MC let him play more at full forward I think 2019 could be a really positive one for Boydy. If he can reach the heights of the 2016 prelim and especially the grand final we will have another superstar to rival Bonti.

    It would be huge for the club and of course Tom. Can you imagine the hysteria if he put in a few performances like he did in the 2016 GF or if he had a couple of break though game as a forward and kicked 6 or 7 goals?

    It would sure boost his confidence. Hoping he has a big impact in that forward line next year.

    Yep. I must admit I worried reading that headline because the black dog never totally goes away.
    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. "
