Some of the cuts that AFL clubs were forced to make because of Covid were cruel. But none were more heart-breaking than when the Adelaide Crows had to temporarily stand down their chief motivational officer Jacob 'Legend' Milbank.
Now, the club has been able to welcome their biggest fan back to the club with a sensational amount of fanfare that is enough to bring a tear to the eye of any footy fan.
Milbank has Down Syndrome and worked with the club for almost nine years before Covid and its protocols meant that the club had no choice but to stand him down. He briefly returned in 2021 before protocols bit once again.
