Perhaps he's trying to outdo Tom Alvin or John Platten? Don't think they ever cut their hair.

Having played plenty of footy with Rick, it is unfair to suggest he wore a toupee. He did undergo certain procedures to maintain his youthful looks. 'Leo' was surprisingly hard and quick on the footy field.

My apologies then, Blocker. I played against him a few times and I agree. Good player.

John Platten wouldn't get his hair cut unless some else paid for it and he made some money out of it. He's lucky he played in a good Hawthorn 80's team and not Fitzroy.
I am excited about the this year.
I hope the players go gang busters and are free to play to their strengths and not worried about a coaches suppressive game plan hanging over their heads.

When Kerry was a kid Blocker signed his minibat after a country cricket match - before the war, the second big one, maybe it was the first (not sure).

Every time I see Sam Sturt running around at training he reminds me of a young Nat Fyfe, I think he could be the the big improver this year.

2nd pre-season into him and I think we're about to see why we picked him with our early pick.

Sturt, Valente, and Cerra were VERY highly touted kids that we haven’t seen the best of, but I’m just as keen to see Bewley and Switta step up a notch. Bewley came in touted as the pinpoint kick to the forwards and I’d love to see him carving it up on a wing and at half forward. Switta is a pressure machine, and I’d love to see him step up and kick a few more goals, catch a few defenders out and sprint into an open goal.
But my pick, for who I think WILL have a breakout year... Matthew Taberner. 40 goals, a couple ten mark games and by mid season to start throwing his weight around a bit.
