Son of God (also known as MD and moondog21) is a player for the Gold City Royals in the Sweet FA. He is a mobile ruckman in the mould of Dean Cox. He has a good fitness base and his ball winning ability, coupled with excellent disposal by hand or foot, makes him one of the better ruckmen in the SFA.
He joined the Southern Dragons as a running defender playing 10 games, before being struck down with a serious knee injury that prematurely ended his season. His posting started a bit tentatively and never really had the chance to improve, in what was a disappointing start to his Sweet FA career. He showed some promising signs early, coinciding with 25 possessions and 9 marks in his second game against the Roys, before falling away considerably.
moondog21 was forced to sit out the entire Season 14 due to complication arising from a knee injury he sustained the previous season. He returned after the season to be a part of the NSW State of Origin campaign, playing 5 matches, but never looked comfortable after a long absence out of the game.
Playing Season 15 under the name MD, he started slowly, with inconsistency plaguing his posting early, but he greatly improved as the season's progressed to finish number 8 in the poster power rankings at the conclusion of the season. He won the role of starting ruckman in the pre-season competition and consolidated the position to become an important member of the side.
His season 15 statistics at the conclusion of the season saw him averaging 10 hitouts, 18 disposals and 3.4 tackles a match, to finish 2nd in total disposals for the Dragons. His great season was capped off with a 6th place finish in the prestigious okeydoke Medal, to confirm his status as one of the better performed players for the season.
He was rewarded for an outstanding season by being promoted to the Dragons leadership group at the conclusion of the season and won a place in the inaugural All Star match at the conclusion of the season.
He played in his first finals match against the Fighting Furies but unfortunately the result didn't go according to plan and the Dragons made an early exit in the Elimination Final.
He started the season in blistering form as a midfielder, kicking 12 goals from seven games, before attempting to troll the league in announcing a fake retirement prior to Round 8.
He was crowned the Royals' best and fairest player at the end of the season, polling 87 votes to win from Marlowe.
