  1. Beautifully said Citrus Bob (and assembled perfectly David). It must be deeply satisfying to have watched Paddy come into the world and then develop with such character – as well as sporting alent. Will you be joining the Almanac Geelong reprobates on the Terrace next year?

    [Nice to see a copy of Play On on your shelves!]

    Well done David and Citrus.

    Is that J Harms product placement in the background? (Re JTH: The perils of starting your comment before you watch the whole video)

    Great job Citrus and welcome David!

  4. Love it, gents.
    Thanks very much for sharing this.

  5. Citrus Bob says

    Every likely hood JTH. Hope Marvin Vaas will join us for his Sri Lankan view of the game.
    I think 32 now equals 34 the great Slick haired Peter Walker

  6. Terrific interview lads. Really enjoyed it. Paddy looks so right in the blue and white hoops.

  7. Chris Bracher says

    Well done David and my old mate Bobby. Covered both joyous and difficult terrain.
    Particularly liked the wide-view early on that gave us a glimpse of Bob’s great pal Freddie Flintoff the dog. (perhaps a little bit of tv makeup next time old fella!!)

    Great interview Dave. I recognised a few titles on the bookshelf!
