The King is gone - Tribute thread

Just heard word that King Carey is going to hold a press conference tomorrow to announce his immeidate retirement from the game due to injury. We all knew the end of this season as probably it anyway but it's a shame he couldn't play the season out. Use this thread to relive your greatest moments of the king on this sad day for AFL.

Was King Italy..

Sad bloody day for the Adelaide Football Club.

Kane Johnson/Daniel Wells for 28 games of Wayne Carey running at no better than 70% for the duration.

Having said that, best player I've seen, and if not the best player of all-time he'd definitely be in the top 5 - The fact that the likes of Shane Woewodin and Tony Liberatore have Brownlows and he doesn't is a disgrace to football.

i had the previledge of seeing him live at optus oval and the MCG ploaying against Silvagni many times. was awesome to watch. Definately the best centre half forward ever and possibly the most important player to a team ever. Pagan's gameplan revolved around Carey taking huge grabs and he won two premierships off it. truly amazing.

The best player i have seen is Ablett, he was a true God. but Carey is definately one of the greats.
