    I hope he never leaves the club. Bulldog personified.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Freak. Of. Nature.

    I honestly thought we'd never see a recovery from an ACL tear quite the likes of Libba Snr's in 1998.

    Then Dale Morris says "Hold my bone broth..."

    What a blessing he's been for our club.

    You'd have to think that his professionalism would have an impact on our younger players

    Remarkable.

    This guy is going down as an all time great - almost unrivalled.

    Whoa! Is anyone else watching The Sunday Footy Show? Dale Morris is being interviewed and they showed some of the treatment that Dale is receiving on his knee and the manipulation on his knee. I wouldn't want someone doing that to my knee, especially if it was broken already. It's not just onfield that footballers are brave.

    I'm sure Dale wants to play on. But he's played just 22 games out of the last 56 games (2.5 seasons). Immediately before that he was playing with a broken back. He's a hero, he's a warrior but I don't see giving him another year is the best decision (he'll be 38 next year with a badly banged up body and a lot of games missed to injury).

    Dale says that because he didnt have the latest knee injury operated on that means the trauma that the operation would otherwise have caused isn't there so he is confident of playing until he is 40-he may have said that with his tongue in his cheek because the other panelists started to carry on when he said it and they didn't follow up if he was serious or not. Although Dale Morris doesn't strike me as somebody who kids around about stuff like that.

    He was on a panel at the end of 2015 ar an event. He said he was hoping for 3, maybe 4 years if he didn't start getting regular injuries or 'old man injuries' (calves etc). That takes him to the end of this season. I think it's time, but if anyone in the club's history deserves a season too long for their service, it's Dale.

    Wouldn't it be great if he never retired. Just kept on playing.

    Yeah, do you get a free kick against if you use a Zimmer frame to spoil.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Suspecting that new and old injuries will come back to haunt him, I donít want him playing lots of games.
