Melbourne coach Mark Neeld says Brad Green retires as a legend of the club.
"He's a 13-year player at our club (and) the club's 150 years old," Neeld said.
"I think there's six players, or maybe even less, that have played more games than Brad. Club champion, club captain, played in a Grand Final. He's a legend of the club."
Green says playing his last game in a 69-point loss to the Crows was an emotional affair.
"You never think this day will come. You always think you can play on or you should play on," he said.
"To play your last game at the MCG and bow out like that is a little bit disappointing."
Melbourne co-captain Jack Grimes paid tribute to his former captain.
"We really look up to 'Greeny' for the player and person he is. If I turn out to be half the bloke and player and contributor to this club that Greeny has been, I'll be a very happy man," Grimes said.
"He'll be sadly missed because he gives his heart and soul to this club and he has for such a long time. But he definitely won't be forgotten."
Brad Green retires with
a warning to his young Melbourne Demons teammates about the effort and commitment required to be successful.
"The players, I have no doubt they're in for a hard pre-season, that's where it's all going to start for them," he said.
"It's not for everybody and it takes hard work. For those players who think it's an easy game, they're kidding themselves. There's a lot of talent, but talent only takes you so far."

"It is still going to be a tribute game for Brad. These sort of things deserve to be dealt with on a case by case basis."

"That takes time and I've got to get to know Mark as well and he's got to get to know all of us. I'm fully comfortable in the process."
