Seems like FJ's insider was half right. Got the player wrong. Apparently Mitchell is about to announce his retirement.

With Nic Nat returning I would be happy for Priddis to have one more year.
Is one of the best handballers around and one of our only guys that lays tackles.
He looks after himself well and was a late starter, so could be alright.
So many other players should be getting the heat before Priddis.

Spot on the money. Unscheduled press conference at 1130. Priddis retires.

Nothing but integrity the whole way. You are a star Mr Priddis and shall be missed. Hopefully his work ethic and attitude has rubbed off on a few of the young blokes.

Sure is going to be a new look team next year.
Oh noooo....the front door's exploded!!!

Welcome to 'The Boys Club" Priddis. Wonder what his job/ coaching role will be?

Bit of a chasm! If he does get a role at the club it will certainly be well deserved.

Steaker, I thought he was ok to go on considering we had re-signed him and with Nic Nat back, would be handy. A great champion for the club.
My sarcasm is for the culture this club has taken on, and the accountability it hasn't.

MMMMMMM. Retirement slipper. Yummmm!

Well Pridda. You plugged away, got a late run at AFL and absolutely gave 100% and got everything out of your game that you possibly could have.

For a time you were the only decent midfielder we had and still gave it all, every game.

A tackling machine, an extractor who often had no-one to extract to and a 100% loyal club man who always seemed grateful to the club for the opportunity.

Well done.
