    Wore number 40 throughout his career if I recall rightly.

    Came from Tassie originally. Was a tagger, but got his own ball. Won Fitzroy's B&F in 1990.

    Re: Interview With Simon Beasley

    The Pieman was indirectly the cause of much pain to my old man's privates one day at th Western Oval. Let me explain (this is funny.....well at least my mates & think so)

    Late 80's, we're playing Carlton. We've assumed our usual spot about 10 metres in front of the scoreboard, and a young Silvagni is playing on Beasley. He's all over him, and this old Carlton bloke is giving it to Simon, and my old man (with his bald head bearing some resemblance to Beeza) couldn't take it, and started giving it to Silvagni. It went back and forth, with something like 'Beasley's finished he's useless' being the last thing we heard him say for the day. My old man, at his witty best, retorts 'Silvagni? ......... Silvagni's a c..t' Little Carlton bloke took one step back, two quick ones forward and SLAM, slipper to Dad's groin. I was nudging 10 and standing there sheeting myself - the bloke moved away from the scene never to be seen again, and in the following weeks, a nagging pain remained in Dad's ...well you know. Went to the doctor, turned out something there was potentially cancerous and needed removing, and this could have potentially brought it forward.

    P.ss funny to look back on - I loved Beasley.

    Geez, Gerry ! Your hard to please mate ! Maybe you should track the players down and do the interviews yourself and we can all judge you on your performances then !

    Great work.

    I loved Simon Beasley. On my ninth birthday my parents actually put "Dear Beasley" on my card.

    Was on SEN today in the special profile segment where they interview past Champions.

    Interesting to hear that he kicked the most goals of any player for the whole of the 1980's.

    He is a real champ of our club.

    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. "

    It's actually a trivia question under the lid of Carlton Draught bottles.

    Re: Interview With Simon Beasley

    Great player, my favourite game of his was against Geelong at Whitten oval where he tore Flannigan a new one kicking 12 goals in 82, Flannigan literally smashed the back of his scone every marking attempt, didn't stop Beaser!

    Re: Interview With Simon Beasley

    Loved the interview. Simon was a wonderful player and it was a privilege to witness his career with the Dogs. I saw his first game at Windy Hill. Who would've thought, after a start like that, that he would go on to become a champion? I saw him kick 12 against Geelong - a great performance. But there were many great performances by the Pieman. Thanks Simon, you were a great player for us.

    That was an ugly start at Windy Hill that day.
