    Re: Forward Planning - The Age 1995

    I can still vividly remember being at training as a 13 year old - and the players finished skills training and returned to the rooms to do extra work (ie. some were doing sit ups, push ups, chin ups, medicine ball stuff) and we were able to just walk into the rooms and watch.

    I remember seeing Jako sit down on the floor, as if he was about to do sit ups with others, and all he ended up doing was laying down on his side and speaking to someone who wasn't a player. Gee he was fat for a footballer. Meanwhile, Libba started doing chin ups, and seemed to just keep going for ages and ages. He was incredible - but just needed a boost to get up to the bar!

    Didn't Jako end up out on a fishing trawler off WA somewhere because he was a wanted man ?

What was impressive is that we took a punt.....

    If we taken 3 kids, and the only name on that list that inspires any confidence in A. Thompson, there may not have been a '97.

    Remember Jako pulling out of a game against us in the early 90's straining his back getting out of his car.

    Groom did not much at Adelaide and had a short career before going back to W.A.

    He enabled Adelaide to get Andrew McLeod.

    That was when he was still a gun (at Melbourne). He slipped a disc in the Western Oval car park.

    With no footy to watch anyone who loves the draft might find this an interesting article.

    Imagine blowing a pick 6 on like Jake Stringer in a live draft now.

    (I know we sorta did but at least he was 18 and good and not 25 and fat at the time)

    Needless to say, he walked home to South Coogee.

    That's *!*!*!*!ing priceless.

    I'm not sure what is worse. The fact that he stole them in the first place, or that he was dumb enough to brag to the bloke he unknowlingly ripped off.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    The stupid bragging I think. That really put the cherry on top.
