I love the optimism posters are showing with Cotch., in terms of staying a couple more years and playing a role forward.

You can argue all you want about whether he has the kicking ability anymore for that role, but one thing you cant argue is his footy smarts and strength at the contest.

What sets him apart from other greats of the game who want to continue playing though - Trent's cup is full. I doubt he'd have any regrets retiring right now.

He will do what he thinks is best for the club, and likely disappoint plenty of us in the process who just want to see him continue.

Motivation is a tricky thing to predict, even for oneself. At one point, he said he thought he'd retire at 26 if he won a single premiership. It will be interesting to see how he responds mentally to relinquishing the captaincy. It could free him up, or it could make it harder to find meaning.

He's said he enjoys mentoring people, so I'm optimistic he could find meaning in playing a Brisbane Luke Hodge role. I agree that he wouldn't have any regrets if the club decided to tap him on the shoulder, but hopefully that's not the case for a while.

Heard that mental giant David Schwarz discussing “good wholesome sports stars you could take home to mum”:

Bontempelli: “Ah The Bont, beautiful person.”

Petracca: “Ah Christian, beautiful young man.”

Gawn: “Aww Big Maxy, his bald head might scare but he’s a beautiful fella.”

Robbie Flower: “Ah bless him, beautiful man.”

Cotchin: “No, not that’s he’s done anything but there’s just something about him, I reckon he might be capable of something.”

The Bronte sisters: “ Ah, beautiful girls”……

Yeah. .... captaining a trifecta of premierships. .... David would be familiar with only one of those things!

Sadly, he's still bitter from Dimma reminding people that he cried. But crying doesn't make him a girl, it's perfectly okay for him to cry.

I mean, I myself cried when I read his comments just now lol... there's nothing wrong with a few tears! :ROFLMAO:
