Ashie is a ripping fella

Once upon a time I trained him at work after he left teaching…in return he let me know everything that went on with the blues during the week…..

An absolute gem of a bloke

I remember Rod Ash playing some absolutely great games at PP particularly.

Fun facts. He missed the Brownlow by a vote one year AND Peter Dean was his nephew (I think).

Same. My mum always accused me of choosing Carlton because they were top of the pile at the time (started school in 82) but I chose them because of Papa Gino's on Lygon St and because my best mate was a fan. My earliest memory of supporting Carlton was hearing on the car radio that we'd been knocked out of the 83 finals. Then followed years of torment from Hawks and Bummers friends who were the biggest cohorts at my school.

Yeah, my high school years were misery too, although 'book-ended' by success.
Started on the back of the 1972 flag last year in primary school then we didn't win again until the year after I finished.

Missing finals in '74, '77, finishing one and two in '76 & '75 and not making the GF,
my high-school footy years were very tormenting.

I remember trying to salvage a minor consolation that at least the Hawks brought the flag back to Princes Park in '76, '78.
