We had already seen 3 AFL legends announce their retirement at the end of the season but we have now seen a fourth with 4-time premiership player at the Hawks and West Coast Eagles off season recruit Sam Mitchell announcing that this season was also going to be his last.
Sam Mitchell will next season continue on in the West Coast Eagles coaching box as an Assistant Coach.
He also joins Matt Priddis as 2 Eagles to announce that 2017 will be their last, as well as Nick Riewoldt from St Kilda and Luke Hodge from Hawthorn. Who else will announce it??
