Like most Collingwood supporters of a certain age, I cannot forget the hush that came over the Outer during Round 14 1972. As a 16 year old proudly sporting the Number 22 on my duffle coat I can never forget the brutality of one St Kilda player, (policeman by profession!!) Jim O'Dea. He king hit my favourite star behind play.
Why wasn't he charged with assault and causing grievous bodily harm ( as Leigh Matthews was on another occasion). Some acts are cowardly and beyond the pale. This was one of them.
For anyone who does not know the story... her is a wonderful blog from Nick
It is why I too HATE St Kilda.
