Remember that time he wanted to keep number 9 when given the captaincy instead of 17 because he wanted to make his own history?
Yep. I wasn't a big fan of his stance back then but now see how he was right.

All subsequent Captains should wear the number 9

Oh East Melbourne!
I look at this bloke and can’t see how we don’t climb the mountain at least one more time under his reign. Not wearing the medal the next day - already focused on bringing more silverware to the club while the window is wide open. Doing it for those who missed out like Rance, Graham and Stack etc. Unbelievable captain, player and human being.

No, they shouldn't, that's completely missing the point. Trent realised the #17 thing was a gimmick, and wanted to be authentic.

From Miller and Wallace the snake oil men to Benny, Peggy, Balmey, Dimma and Cotch, the Real Deal.

He has been a star from the first time i saw him play against a strong Geelong team in 6'degrees on a wet mcg.
We lost by 20 but i didn't care.
I knew we found a beauty.
The classy midfielder becomes the wrecking ball captain.
Unbelievable captain.
