As others have said, his fall from grace has been spectacular. Makes me wonder if there was any truth to some of the sordid rumors floating around in recent years.

As Pauline would say, Please explain.

Yeah, my favourite player of that era. Never stepped up to be the no. 1 gun mid that we hoped, but had a great career as a CHB who also could run and distribute. Remember him winning a game with almost the last kick of the game at the Docklands, Hawthorn or the Dogs maybe? And of course the rushing the ball for points incident which led to the rule change.

Smart player.
I think you are referring to the win over Brisbane at the Docklands where he kicked the sealer. Wallace was coach at the time and Tambling was involved in running it off half back in that final play.

Just a pro's pro and one of the most underrated players in the competition, particularly for courage. Another of the real good blokes unfortunate enough to not find success through loyalty but can hold his head higher than almost anyone.

Quality clubman for the Blues Simpson, was a very good distributor from half back and a courageous player for his stature not a big bloke.

Professional and along with Humphrey Kreuzer the Blues are going to lose a lot of leadership with the departure of two of the very few Carlton players I actually respect.

These guys will be missed at Princess Park.

He was a good player for them, very, very honest player. Someone I didn’t mind watching even if he was in the wrong jumper. Some players you just respect for giving everything no matter what. I think he extracted all his talent and bows out knowing he never wasted a thing.

Interesting Kreuszer Simpson and Gibbs all retired.

How often these 3 featured in their bests against us wouldve been fairly often.

Rookie for the TIgers for a year that'd really get the media sooks pisssing their pants :mhihi

With Soldo out for a year, I'd seriously consider Kreuzer as a rookie. Cotchin and Kreuzer getting the band back together again would really p!ss off the Blues.
