Kelly Retires ...

Paul Kelly, courage personified - one of the real success stories of AFL football and concrete proof that Australian Rules was f*cking that sh1tful game known as Rugby League.

The boy from Wagga who switched from League to Aussie Rules and went on to win the 1995 Brownlow - on his debut against Carlton he had to get a team-mate to explain to him "who this Stephen Kernahan character was".

Another hero leaves the game.

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."


- Vincenzo Grella, Parma & Australia.

If there was a Paul Kelly in every team - The AFL would be laughing !!! They will then know that everyteam has a class act !!
The man should be given the key to Sydney
