Did you hear him on Bigfooty Tigercast a couple of weeks ago? He said he would have foregone his salary for the whole season to help the club in 1990.

Imagine Mitchell in a more competitive team? Would have been even more magical.

I loved him. He made me go to the footy.
When we would struggle to win 4 games a year.
I hope Gale and Co have superstars like him welcomed back at every opportunity.

It felt like our forward line opened up today, may be because of all the attention Shai was getting doubleteamed

Still ended up with a goal and second highest centre clearances on the ground

I think a lot of that was Jack. Jack deliberately led his man away from Lynch, reducing their ability to doubleteam him. Clearly the plan was to free up Lynch and we did it very well.

I would almost rest Shai against Essendon if what they have been managing most of the year can be improved by rest, hardly trained last week, (not at all on Tuesday and very little on Thursday)
At least we have the opportunity to do so if beneficial.
**As for his game, was tagged well by Magginess and a good learning experience, many will try but many more will FAIL trying to nullify his game.

Agree.

Off the tip of my head, would consider Shai and Nank. Give Soldo a crack. Although the bye probably means you should play everyone to maintain momentum. Two weeks is a big break.

Congratulations to $hai on All-Australia selection and top 5 in the AFLPA MVP. The best highlight reel in the AFL, a walking, breathing pisstake.

One day they'll learn how to pronounce his name. Well done Shai. Now go tear the finals apart.

Well done Bolts, but more importantly he's gonna be a daddy very soon.
Apparently we’ll overdue.
May have to induce the baby.
Going to be rough leaving his partner and new born baby at home whilst he’s in Brisbane trying to concentrate on footy
