One of the things I love about our footy club over the years is our quirky and sometimes maligned non-footballer footballers.

The heady days of Scotty Thorton streaking off halfback bouncing the ball with literally no idea what he’d do next his only thought to outrun the much more vaunted eagles midfield.

Life, like art, repeats ... I give you Taylin Duman.

Like Scotty he’ll play on smalls and talls, somehow weave through gaps that aren’t even there.

When you love Duffle so much you post in Duffle instead of the main board.

I once came across Scott Thornton post-career, at Freo post office. I patted him on the shoulder, thanked him and told him he was a good player. He liked it.
Barring bad luck and injury he could've had a good career. Tall, quick and daring...I liked him.
