Might put his hand up for the proposed AFl All Star Fire Fund Raising game.
I was just thinking the same thing even if it is his farewell match. I would be good to watch him one last time.

At the end of the day, we lost a preliminary final by 6 goals with him and then won a GF by 15 goals without him.
The club is strong and with Castagnafield coming into his prime, these glory days will continue...

Heard from a reasonable source that Alex will be back mid/late Feb. grain of salt of course but the explanation made some sense. Source said there was no friction b/w him and playing group. He didn’t know any sinister reasons but from what he knew it was more the culmination of knee reco, marriage breakdown and being physically knackered. Thus after a decent break he thinks he will be back. Again grain of salt

It is amazing how different people hear different things, I have heard polar opposites and everything in between from supposedly reliable sources :rolleyes: that is why I am going with nothing on this matter.

Why would he retire and not just take a break?

No sense to me.

Heard the same Ghost. Knee didn’t come up as well as thought, will need some further work plus the other issues (separation and physically knackered). Club gave him some time off with a come back when you are ready. Again grain of salt.

he is an all-or-nothing guy.

Thats how he plays and its common for people with his passion to be this way.

jeez I hope there's some truth to this. explains why we kept him on the list.

It shouldn't come as any surprise, that I just backed him to win the 2020 Norm Smith at 1000000-1

I dont listen to rumours but I watched him train in the 3 or 4 sessions leading up to his announcement (inc the Tuesday 2 days prior) & there is nothing wrong with his knee, he was going full noise

agree, his knee is fine its the marriage bustup - he retired to show his wife hes putting his faith and her before footy, simple as that.
