    Who To Give The Jumper Numbers To?

    Available Jumper Numbers:

    17
    18
    19
    38
    42
    45 (Only Existing Vacant Number Before Jong at 46 - the highest jumper number)


    Previous Numbers:

    27 Bruce
    42 Keath
    44 Weightmn (Stingrays)
    13 Butler (Dragons)
    53 Garcia (Swan Districts)


    Alternatively, is there anyone deserving an upgrade into the teens? Eg. English, La Young etc.

    I'd live to turn #38 into a distinguished number forever. Maybe offered to the best KPD or something.

    For mine:

    17 Bruce (another big man to take over 17)
    18 English (big promotion, assuming he wants it)
    19 Butler
    38 Keath (taking the honour of Morris jumper number)
    42 Garcia
    44 Weightmn (his junior jumper number)

    I like the romance of the idea of giving #38 to a player off the rookie list too.

    If Garcia sticks with 53, he automatically becomes a fav. Love a random high jumper number.

    Number 19 is CURSED.

    19 Merrington, Gary 46 1966-1975
    19 Evenden, Reg 13 1938-1943, 1945-1948
    19 Martin, Alan 8 1949-1954
    19 Jones, Liam 68 2010-2014
    19 Contessa, Adam 8 1997-2001
    19 Williams, Arthur 4 1929-1932
    19 Buckley, Brian 3 1956-1959
    19 Tzatzaris, Zeno 1984-1990
    19 Beveridge, Luke 29 1993-1995
    19 Dougherty, George 30 1942-1943
    19 Webb, Lukas 7 2015-2018
    19 Greenwood, Jack 1963-1964
    19 Muir, Bob 1 1933-1934
    19 Warden, Wally 9 1928, 1930
    19 Bradmore, Phil 17 1978-1981
    19 Love, Terry 11 1982-1983
    19 Lamprell, Vern 5 1935-1936
    19 Cave, Matt 1 1932-1933
    19 Honey, Norm 4 1933-1934
    19 Gow, Paul 1991
    19 Polson, Gordon 1 1979-1981
    19 Smith, Arthur 5 1930
    19 Fleming, Phil 1977
    19 Smith, Tommy 1937
    19 Sutherland, John 1925
    19 Malberg, Artie 1927
    19 Sexton, Norm 1931
    19 McDowell, Frank 1955

    I know I have said this before but can we PLEASE not give this jumper to our first round draft pick? Instead, can we either:

    a). Take it to the middle of the Whitten Oval and BURN IT - never to be used again.
    b). Perform some kind of ritual 'cleansing' before using it EVER again.

    This jumper should never, ever be seen again.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Tom Campbell played in 45 for a few seasons before switching to a lower number.

    I have a soft spot for 45 having worn it for most of my local footy career.

    Retire 42 until we can give it to a rookie - Matty Boyd wore it before handing it to Picken. It's a rookie success magnet.

    19 should be retired as it absolutely is cursed.

    Yep agree. I've always eyed numbers 19 and 1 with extreme suspicion. But I always thought that Phil Bradmore wore number 18 because he was a full forward and another (better) full forward called Simon Beasley took the number from him.


    Zeno Tzatzaris is like a god to some people. Maybe we could retire the number and just give him the jumper with 19 on it. Zeno will crush it to death! And I played cricket with Terry Love-he was a decent fast bowler and made a few rep teams even though he had some handy fast bowlers ahaed of him in underage ranks (Merv Hughes, Tony Dodemaide, Colin Miller and a few others who were good but never went anywhere. I can confirm some Blackadder type moments yelling "Go Love" and "Great stuff Love" at those old suburban grounds would get you some strange looks.

    Lachie Young then?

    I kind of like the idea of giving it a year and maybe considering if Khamis wants to change to 38 if he's coming along nicely.

    I was an unabashed Zeno fan as he grew up only 8 or 9 doors away great bloke all round always time for a chat and a beer and whatever his injury was he never ever stopped smiling and giving of his time.

    Not to mention he's the only Parkside boy to make it to the big time as far as I know.
