Ex-Port Adelaide captain

Former Power skipper
Warren Tredrea was happy to hand over his No. 16 guernsey to new draftee Ben Jacobs.
"It's good that Ben wants it because I don't think there were too many takers there early on," Tredrea said.
"Everyone asks you what you think of giving your guernsey away, but it's not mine to give. It's almost like a rental property. While you're living there it's yours, but once you go it's someone else's turn."

Port Adelaide's Warren Tredrea calls an end to his career and says he made the decision to retire as he was being helped from the ground against Essendon in round seven with an ankle injury.
"I was confident that I could get back before the end of the year, but the direction we're heading in is not a direction for a 31-year-old to be selfish," Tredrea said.
"I was always going to retire at the end of this year and when I injured myself it brought it on even quicker. I was loving playing, loving training and loving competing but everything else that came with AFL footy... it was getting to the stage where I'd almost had enough."
Port Adelaide caretaker coach and former teammate Matthew Primus says retiring Warren Tredrea deserves to be rated among the best players of the game.
"Tredders has been one of the greats. He's been an outstanding player for us and the greatest player we've ever had. The Chris Judds, Jonathan Browns and those kinds of guys in the competition - Tredders is up there, if not above them," Primus said.
"He just won our club too many games not to be. He should be held in as high regard as anyone else in the last decade."

Dr Hugh Seward says the unknown of LARS ankle surgery performed on veteran Warren Tredrea makes it too risky for younger players with time on their side.
"Warren is getting towards the end of his career and wants to make the most of the time ahead and I think it's a well considered decision he's made," Seward said.
"If you have a young player who's at the very start of his career, we'd prefer to use the standard, proven technique. The sorts of players having this repair done may well be the older player who is getting to the second half of their career and doesn't want to run the risk of a longer period out."
Friday, 4 June 2010
Port Adelaide veteran Warren Tredrea is set for an earlier-than-expected return from a serious ankle injury .
"'Tredders' is coming along pretty well. He can even jog lightly and he's certainly walking around on the ankle. He's started a fitness program, but he's probably still eight weeks away from playing," Port Adelaide football operations manager Peter Rohde said.
"I wouldn't want to build expectation too much, but we are expecting him to get back at some stage later in the year."
Tuesday, 11 May 2010
In what is believed to be an AFL first, Port Adelaide veteran Warren Tredrea has had an artificial ligament inserted in his foot in a bid to quicken his recovery from a potentially career-threatening ankle injury.
"The advantage of the synthetic ligament is that it has a great deal of flexibility, which allows him to get going a lot quicker. The procedure is relatively new, but it has been used quite regularly in New South Wales in the rugby league and also in American footballers," Port Adelaide doctor Mark Fisher said.
"Hopefully it means we'll be able to get Tredders training a little bit sooner than you'd otherwise expect."

Wednesday, 31 March 2010
On the eve of his 250th march, Port Adelaide veteran Warren Tredrea says this season may not be his last.
"To say this season will be my last ... I'm mentally prepared it could be, but that decision will be made come August or September after the finals series and consultation with the coaches," Tredrea said.
"If the body's fresh, my form is good and I'm enjoying it then there's no reason why I won't continue."

Warren Tredrea expresses anger that a merger between the Power and the Port Adelaide Magpies in the SANFL was rejected and says he will not play for another SANFL club if the Port Adelaide Magpies fold next year.
"There's only one club [for me] in the SANFL and that's the team I've followed. It'll be interesting if I decide to play on next year what SANFL club I'll have to visit because I can guarantee you I won't be going to any other club," Tredrea said.
"When my dad texted me a couple of nights ago and told me [the merger had been voted down] I couldn't believe it. As someone who was involved in it I was bitterly disappointed and to see [Magpies legend] Russell Ebert's face yesterday, it was pretty shattering.
"I just think it was a bit on envy and self-focus that has led to that decision being made. I don't think the overall picture of South Australian football has been looked after at all."
Thursday, 26 November 2009
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams says his club will use pick No.8 to select Gippsland forward John Butcher with a view to eventually replacing club stalwart Warren Tredrea.
"I saw him play a few games and he needs to work on his kicking there's no doubt, but he can pick the ball up off the ground and he could develop into a really great forward," Williams said.
"He can take a contested mark. He jumps into packs and knocks people over."
Sunday, 4 October 2009
In his first year since relinquishing the captaincy, Warren Tredrea has won Port Adelaide's best and fairest finishing 3 votes ahead of runner up Kane Cornes.
"I thought I was washed up two years ago, so to win this is a huge honour," Tredrea said.
Friday, 18 September 2009
Port Adelaide has re-signed Danyle Pearce, Warren Tredrea, Michael Pettigrew, Tom Logan and Matthew Lobbe to new deals.
"From a personal point of view I was satisfied with my form and fitness this year and I can't wait to start pre-season and build towards 2010," Tredrea said.
"I'm also looking forward to helping with the development our young players, who really are the core of our playing group now."
Friday, 28 August 2009
Port Adelaide forward Brett Ebert will play in place of Warren Tredrea against North Melbourne after the former skipper pulled out of the side due to a calf complaint.
Ebert was dropped from the side that lost to Brisbane, the second time this season that the forward was dropped and Power assistant coach Adam Kingsley said on radio the 25-year-old needed to "pull his finger out" over the coming pre-season.
"Brett's effort is a little inconsistent, but he's played 100 games. We've sat and watched his video and talked about it, so he understands what he has to improve on," Power coach Mark Williams said.
"Everyone around Australia knows he's a wonderful mark and a great kick at goal. He just needs to get some more balls that are on the ground."
Monday, 24 August 2009
Port Adelaide veteran forward Warren Tredrea says his club must be active in trades during the off-season after a highly disappointing 2009 showing.
"You don't need to be Einstein to realise there needs to be changes because what we've served up this year is not good enough," Tredrea said.
"So the list needs to be turned over, we need to bring new players in, so we have to be an active player in the trade period."
Wednesday, 24 June 2009
Former Port Adelaide captain Warren Tredrea says Mark Williams should stay as coach as scrutiny increases on Williams' tenure at the Power.
"Mark's been marvellous for the amount of scrutiny and public opinion [he's been under]. He's training and coaching as hard as he ever has and even today he wheeled out a new plan for the rest of the season," Tredrea said.
"He's always thinking. It is probably a big focus for him in his life because it's his employment, but at the moment his sole focus is preparing his team to play as well as they can this week."
Monday, 18 May 2009
Hard-working Power half-back Matt Thomas says Warren Tredrea is playing the best football of his career after the former captain booted seven goals against Richmond including the match-winner.
"It was as good a game as he's ever played for the club and it was right up there with the most influential. He kicked goals when we needed them and, in the end, he took that mark fairly deep in the pack.
"I've said that not being captain has been good for him. Now, he can smell the roses. He can worry about himself and he doesn't have to do all the meetings, all the media and all the other things that a captain has to do."
Port Adelaide spearhead Warren Tredrea's dramatic resurgence tempts him to consider lengthening his career.
"The reality is the last three years have been very tough mentally and physically it has been a battle to get back," Tredrea said.
"I always believed that I could do it but now it's a reality that I can consistently do it."

Sunday, 12 April 2009
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams says Warren Tredrea's six-goal haul against Melbourne on Sunday took fans, players and coaches alike back to the forward’s glory days.
Tredrea, 30, had not kicked a goal in the opening two rounds of 2009, but turned back the clock against the Dees at AAMI Stadium to finish with his best return in nearly four years.
Friday, 21 December 2007
Warren Tredrea accepts a one-year contract at a reduced salary to stay at Port Adelaide.
In addition, Tredrea has also not been guaranteed the Power captaincy which will be decided next year, an issue which Tredrea says will not be bothering him.
"If that's myself then great," Tredrea said. "I'd love to do it, but if not and it's a younger guy then I'll fully support them because we want to get back, be a powerhouse and go one step better next year"
Power coach Mark Williams gave credit to Tredrea for being willing to accept a smaller contract.
"Warren's not getting paid as much as he used to and it's a credit to him to say 'Yep I'm going to cop that, but I'm going to show you blokes', and I look forward to another great year from Warren Tredrea."
