    I thought news articles belonged in Dogs Day? Why has it been moved here?

    Re: Wood announces AFL retirement

    Goodbye to the hottest ever Bulldog. What a servant to the club on and off the field. Gave it all and got to be only the second ever Bulldog captain to lift the cup.
    Rest up Laverne and Shirley.

    Re: Wood announces AFL retirement

    A positive in this news, is that I won't have to put up with my wife using Easton as a reference point to highlight my physical shortcomings any longer.
    Bad news is she'll probably just transfer that role over to Bailey Smith....

    Happy retirement Stupid Sexy Premiership Captaining High Flying Charlie Sutton Winning All Australian Entirely Unselfish Reliable Teammate Easton Wood.

    Am I right in thinking that means the entire 2016 Men's Department premiership winning defence is now gone from the club?

    edit, JJ is still there
    Now is the winter of our discontent

    A bull-god for sure.

    Thanks Easton. You’ve been a pleasure to watch and have given us such joy over the years. It’s sad that it’s time to call it a day but much respect for calling it on your terms and going out with your last match being a GF. Impressive career and even more impressive human.

    I think I may have seen this coming but I'm really sad (but I'm not crying you are). Great stuff on a wonderful career Easton and its dignified conclusion.

    Re: Wood announces AFL retirement

    Kind of surprised, but yet sitting back it's the right call.

    Tremendous career Easton, always liked him from day one and had it not been for his body, he probably gets 250+ games.

    Either way, 180 odd games, a B&F, AA and Premiership Captain is honestly the stuff of dreams.

    Well deserved, he'll be missed - a calming presence, a good leader and somebody who gave his all for this footy club.

    Thanks Woody.

    20 hamstring injuries throughout his career. You have to be bloody mentally strong to overcome that many setbacks and still contribute to so strongly to the club.

    Not sure what his coaching aspirations are, but I reckon he has it in him to become a very well respected assistant.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Just watched his highlights package on Twitter and can admit that I am in fact crying a bit.

    At his peak just an outstanding player.

    He's certainly put the club first and arrived at the right decision. A club captain and premiership player so he's done what every footy loving kid dreams of.
