Cyril had an amazing vertical leap.
Haven't seen that aspect in MJ yet. He's smaller than I thought tbh.
Looks very good below his knees though. Can't wait to see more.
snr was no wilt chamberlain. jnr same height?

No doubt Snake. Was just pointing it out by comparison to Cyril who had a strong aerial game. Bakes does too for a small btw.
Snr didn’t possess a great grab either & was quite short in stature but that didn’t prevent him being an all time great. No doubt if you’re good enough it doesn’t matter.

He looked inordinately comfortable at his first training run.

I know its just a clip, but I drew the impression that the team was orbiting around him?

I suppose that's what Royalty is?

I wonder if even Dusty will bow perceptibly when he returns?

Maurice Rioli back at Richmond. It really is like a dream come true.

We find ourselves existing in a footy utopia.

this is it.

Do we address him as “Your Royal Lowness” because of his height?

Theres 10,0000 shorter monarchs. Maybe more.

I reckon ill be saying 'good lord' and 'jesus *smile* christ'

Once MRJ gets out on The G.

And there will be the moments im speechless, or laughing or crying uncontrollably.

Whilst on spirituality, i went to a funeral on saturday, and some unevolved person who had unfortunately been reared in queensland,

Derided how in victoria, people get buried in footy jumpers, or to the tune of their clubs theme song.

I replied. Well i dont get how some people get buried clutching a skinny hippy on a cross, to the tune of 'the lords my Shephard'. At least you can see Marlion Pickett when hes sheparding.

Silence ensued.

Yep, Maurice senior showed that to Mark Jackson when he gave him a flogging. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

When was this fight that you speak of?
When they both played at South Fremantle in the late 70's. Jacko was mouthing off to Maurice, so coach Mal Brown put them in the ring to sort it out. They ran out of fishing line stitching Jacko back up.

Technique helps a lot too :)
