National AFL Masters Legends Hall of Fame

2012 Bill McDonald – East

At the 2012 National Carnival held in Townsville, the National body announced a new recognition award for services to the AFL Masters competition, “Legends Hall of Fame”.

SA is proud to acknowledge that Bill MacDonald was one of the deserving recipients of this prestigious award.

Many of the current SA AFL Masters players would not be aware of what Bill has done and achieved in his career before and during AFL Masters. So I thought it an opportune time to acknowledge some of Bills achievements in football and administration.

Bill played SANFL with Central Districts. He has the dubious honour of being the first Centrals player to be reported. While playing with Centrals he also helped out coaching juniors in the area, he once told a 10 yr. old Elizabeth kid that he was too small and light to play football and should try soccer. That kid was John Platten who won both the Brownlow and Margery medals, played in 4 night and 4 day premierships with Hawthorn, 5 times All Australian.

Ratpak

The Ratpak came to life in the 2000 Carnival held in Hobart.
The four of us were always together eating and drinking (Hugh Barker, Jim Potts, Ken Follett and Barrie Nicolle) much to the disgust of the coach Mark Doyle, but that was the only side SA took to that year’s carnival (Seniors). One night we were having fun when Mark came looking for us we were stuck in the corner of the pub, he called us “you’re just a RAT PACK” from then on we became the Ratpak and I got my son to design us a logo, which got people talking so we decided to continue the practice and inducted more rats.

The ideals of the Ratpak is for the inductees to put AFL MAFSA Superules before themselves, to raise money where possible help out other AFL MAFSA footballers or their families (e.g. if someone is injured away and needs a flight back quickly or if sickness in family we maybe able to assist financially). We have started slowly and are building stronger each year. The Ratpak wishes to be part of AFL MAFSA folk law, also to have lots of fun …
