My mate used to play ammos with Ardon and apparently he was very aware that opposition players wanted to give him a shiner because he was on the news. He used to get in first.

I player footy with Rick (aka Leo) at then Cowan Uni (C'MON EDITH... just kidding, the Hawkers, before they folded into West Coast Amateurs-yes it's a real place); Rick went on to play with Scarborough for many years, and was pretty handy, and really superlative for his age, amazing longevity. Could and did kick bags of goals on his day. His hair did get a lot of commentary from opponents, none complimentary.

And yes he went in bloody hard. I was no slouch at putting my body in, and I still remember a very willing game against Wanneroo where I had committed to hitting a pack, and Rick came from behind on an angle and hit the pack before me. Pretty bloody impressive. Still annoys me.

Fun fact- Danny Green played in the same side, usually off a HBF. Not particularly sophisticated chatter/sledging, but efficient. Enjoyed tuning in opposition rucks, whom wouldn't have known anything about the chirpy lean dude in front of them with a bit too much to say.

I'm not sure, but that may have been prior to becoming Cowan Uni, very likely. Lot of guys from Newman College played there during my time. I just trailed my brother in for a game when I was on break from work. I know MHWP folded into Cowan while I was there, but only one or two players came across.

It's also easier to list clubs I haven't played for, probably. I remember writing a list before playing some NTFL for Nightcliff, and the registrar just looked at me and said, "...are you taking the piss?"

CA,
Didn't think they let adults play in junior games.

My less than mediocre junior footy was with the North Innaloo Junior Football Club Bulldogs. A top club still plying its trade in the sunday mercantile comp.

We even pinched the Collingwood club song changing from good old Colligwood to good old Innaloo.

the Woorooloo Prison teams wouldn't play us, we had too many crims in our team ;)
