In a career spanning 14 seasons at Collingwood, Gavin Crosisca forged a reputation as a no-nonsense footballer.
What he lacked in natural skill, he made up for with sheer effort, with his strong frame and stamina making him one of the league's most feared defenders.
News that he used drugs throughout his playing career will shock many, particularly as the AFL battles recreational drug use among current players.
Born and raised in Queensland, Crosisca debuted for Collingwood in 1987.
