Walker – who was interestingly met with jeers from the Richmond faithful whenever he went near the ball – had just 11 and kicked one goal – including just three touches to his name at the main break. Comparatively, his opponent David Astbury had 18 possessions (13 to half-time) and 10 one percenters as the Crows' forward again struggled to find his feet on the big stage ...

He gets jeered because, like Adam Goodes late in his career, he’s become a flog
It's that simple Spud
"I discussed (it) with my three daughters, my wife and my 82-year-old mum, because it has really affected me … If those comments … were made about one of my daughters, it would make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I would not have liked it at all.”

It's Dave's 100th this week  :clapping.

Started off with 17 games in his debut season (2010) but could then only manage 24 over the next 5 years (2011-2015). He was almost traded to Brisbane but stayed and in the past 3 years he's played 54 games out of a possible 60 including last year's premiership.
