Last weekend’s loss reminded us of why Twilight football is really crap. But we’ve moved on to Sunday’s unfurling, and what a great flag it will be to unfurl. “Excuse me Eddie whilst I unfurl my premiership flag.” And what a great day to say thanks to four of our great players in Lingy, Moondog, Otto and Dasher. Four players. Over 1000 games. Eleven premiership medallions. What a seafood combination! Whilst we gave Lingy a worthy send off, it was remiss of us to also not remember the great service and commitment given by Moondog, Otto and Dasher.
But instead of writing our own tribute, we’ll refer you onto fellow Cats’ blog ‘big league, little league‘ that did it as well as any. For example:
“this off-season has seen the greatest loss of talent, character and “Geelong-ness” we’ve seen in one season since Beaumont’s Pies closed its doors in the same year as CC music. Just as in 2007 (Steven King) and 2009 (Tom Harley), Geelong will bid farewell to its premiership winning captain, Cameron Ling, as well as Cameron Mooney, Darren Milburn, Mark Blake and Brad Ottens. As tribute, here is Big League’s goodbye to five (four) of the best who will be missed on the field, in the stands and in these pages.”
