Welcome Gibbo, I hope you have a long & very successful career at the Tigers. Hopefully you're a multi Premiership player with us. :cupgold:cupgold:cupgold
Same here TT.
Must admit though I was a bit underwhelmed by his interview after being selected.
Did not appear that excited and thought he sounded a bit cocky.
Maybe that is a good thing, but time will tell if he lives up to his own hype.

Agree. Lever is not a one on one shut down defender like Gibcus has demonstrated to be if required.

The best comparison I see to Gibcus is Darcy Moore, yet none of the so called experts have mentioned it.

Twomey mentions Lever and then everyone just jumps on the bandwagon
Exactly what I said last night. He will be our Darcy Moore.

Reckon the club is going to have a decent crack at turning him into a forward. Coaches will split his time training with the forwards and backs during pre-season. He’ll then find himself playing a quarter here and there in practice matches up forward. Finally, he’ll line up at full forward in his first VFL match for “team balance”, he’ll kick 4 and never spend another minute in defense again.

The NIB logo doesn't look too bad in that video clip. Maybe we should play all our games at night with half the lights out.

Gibcus’ first words were literally “it’s unreal, overwhelmed with emotion”.

Were you expecting him to burst into tears or do an an impromptu rendition of ‘Celebration’ by Kool and the Gang?

Tom Lynch first one to send him a text… good leadership!
Not as good as Heppell and another Essendon player rocking up at the London Tavern to welcome Hobbs personally.

Lynch and others reside in Richmond so you think something similar could have been organized.

They had all made other arrangements as they thought we were taking Johnson….
