From the Scum:
'LEGENDARY cartoonist William Ellis Green died this morning, aged 85.
Known to most by his initials - WEG - his iconic footy premiership posters were a Grand Final tradition for more than 50 years.
The posters began in 1954 when Footscray won their first and only premiership.'
WEG has defined footy premierships for the last 50-odd years. Really sad to see him go. My favourite WEG - well there are 4 to choose from. Here is one of them:
RIP WEG - you are a Melbourne icon and footy is a poorer place without you.
