Graeme Yeats was the epitome of reliability throughout a long, if somewhat unfeted, V/AFL career with Melbourne, whom he joined originally from VFA club Prahran. He made his Demons debut in 1984, and his 182 senior games over a dozen seasons included the losing Grand Final of 1988 against Hawthorn, when he lined up on a wing. Although a highly capable wingman, his best, and indeed most, of his football was played in the back pocket, a position in which, at his peak, he had few peers in the competition.
