Dimma Jnr, Keg Cummings, Rin-Tin-Toul ... GAWN!

The man with the fro ... the man with the guts ... and the man with the Premiership medallion all axed from the Pies and in all likelihood have played their last games at AFL level.

It's amazing what gets cut at the end of a season with these ridiculously short 38-man lists these days ...

"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."

It's a shame that Rintoul and Cummings only managed 1 year at the Pies and not even a decent amount of games. Cummings probably could have had at least 2 more good seasons in the AFL, and his start to the season suggested that.

Rintoul and Dimma? Well the latter will find a club, not sure about Rinotoul news has it he will hang up the boots.

Fat Boy Cummings was always gonna retire and I am surprised he didnt pull the pin earlier !!

Chad Rintoul even though I didnt rate him as a person ( you just dont beat up taxi drivers ) or a player but it is real pity when a player has to give the game away for reasons such as his !!
