That is sad, I remember him as someone who seemed to have a very astute footy brain, was very calm and methodical and a talented player. He, I think it's fair to say, brought Centrals their first period of relative success, or at least strength.
It's great to see someone like him come from interstate and then embrace that local community so strongly too.

Great football family and did so much for the CDFC and northern community.

Son Justin played a bit of League footy with the Dogs, before switching to North and is now a Fire Fighter.

Another son Nathan was a long-serving fitness coach for the Dogs throughout their successful 2000's era and is now a major player in Adelaide Real Estate. Also married to Glen Copper's daughter.

I never saw Tony play live but have seen footage and heard stories from my old man, who he had as his childhood hero and later did some contract work for Tony and Roy Laird.

Was a great club servant and hopefully the Dogs will do something appropriate to honour his service.
