Pricey gave Wally Lewis his title the 'King'

There's a statue of Brett Kenny doing the gardening outside the Leagues Club.

Or that may have been Kenny himself actually.

Not all of us.
I can look back on those days fondly, but I am about moving on. I was against the move back to the old club emblem - I thought the one we had was really good already. I'm ok with reverting back to the old-style jersey simply because they look better.
I can't wait for us to win another Premiership...not just because I will enjoy the win, but also so we can finally move on from that period where we were so successful 30 years ago.

Dally Messenger's was pretty good too.

I always liked Simon Woolford's nickname.
So fitting.

[QUOTE=T.S Quint;1503155]I didn't get to see much of Lewis, and what I did see has faded in my memory.

I'm pretty sure he was overrated though.

He was a great origin player...he inspired many many maroon comebacks..tough, smart, great hands
.imo he rarely played that well for Australia or his club.

Best footballer I ever saw is Bob Fulton... tough, smart, fast, great defender, great hands..if only he played for Parra.

I might not be worth my salt......and Kenny and Price are both hard heads....but they earned their street cred and the right to have a bitch about matters.

There is a reason for that...we'll my reason...the 80's was such an awesome decade it's hard to forget. I would rather live in the 70s and 80s than today and would go back in a flash. I have many fond memories of the 80s and it's not just footy.

So parra, through Price are laying claim to the 'King' title bestowed upon Wally Lewis.
Which club lays claim to the 'Wally's a Wanker' title?

It was revealed on Friday night footy by one of the commentators while speaking to Lewis.

I'd hazard a guess that it was a whole state, not a club.

Yeah, I saw that. Interesting stuff.

I was sure the 'Wally's a Wanker' chant started during a mid week cup game when he played for combined Brisbane.

And Wally being booed at the SCG in 1984. lol
