Was anyone surprised when Garry Ablett was announced as the Gold Coast Suns captain?
No Shifty. He said earlier in the year he wanted the captaincy at Geelong, and was knocked back. IMO it went to securing his defection, and I would not be surprised if it was actually part of his defection deal. I am pretty sure he will be a good captain as he does lead by example, I think the biggest question will be how long little brother manages to hang around, as we all know he left Geelong four years ago cause he didn't like/couldn't handle, the afl lifestyle. He will be a good captain and has a good supporting leadership group on paper at least. Another question, which can only be answered during the season, will be how all these superstars egos gel into what should be a formidable partnership. cheers mate.
