I guess everyone is stumped ... or isn’t at all motivated by my carefully researched questions :)

The answers are:
1 - Buggsy
2 - Rags or Raggsy
3 - Turvey Park (my cousin, Jimmy Gutterson got the job when Big Nick stayed at Carlton)
4 - Ballarat (I would have accepted Robinvale where he lived after his Carlton career ended)
5 - Newlands High (my old school)
6 - Galt’s cartoon depicted the VFL as a pig muscling in on the VFA’s Sunday monopoly.
7 - Broken ankles suffered in a car accident.
8 - David Parkin
9 - Dentist
10 - 1966 - midway through the season   :o

I reckon the umpire would have pinged many of today’s “handpasses” back in the flick pass days.

Wouldn't we all!

Remember the olden days, the coaching manual stated something like ......... off a stationary hand ............

I even recall some controversy in Diesel's day, because he would use the hand holding the ball to throw the ball backwards onto his approaching fist. It enabled him to hit 30m hand passes, but from that to what we have today is a long long way!

That's about all I could find. Some of our members I'm sure would know more. The second link is to the main gallery page, and you will find page 2 of 2 there.

That blueseum is worth its weight in gold. A great resource IMO.

Sorry DBS, I made it sound like Vinny had KOd the coach when it happened during a Carlton-Hawthorn game.  The Matthews brothers hunted Vinny after Parkin was carried off and I suspect that he regretted his actions.

I believe that there was an incident where the actual coach was dropped by a player.
