So Brian Lake told everyone the reason why he chose not to play on with Essendon who offered him $150,000 plus game day payments and said he would have only played on for selfish reason then he pulled this out......

The only reasons I would have done it (are) selfish - if I was on 290 games and I wanted to get to 300, a bit like `Boomer' who wants to break the record," he said.

What a knob.

Yeah because Boomer looks cooked doesn't he? Maybe if Boomer was showing his age (which he isn't) it would be selfish to chase the record. Lake was nothing but a dirty grub but I do agree playing for * would taint your career.

He's not serious is he, the reason why boomer is still playing on is that hes still a very good player and still has the drive/hunger to continue. An example of a great player being selfish, is them not being anywhere near best 22 and continuing to play on knowing the club would remain loyal and keep gifting games.

The article below clearly cements Boomer as one of the most valued players in the league.

It's ok guys i see him at my local Coles all the time. He can expect a trolley in his legs and when hits the deck I'm pouncing on him to get one back for Drew.

Nothing but a big dopey sack of horse turds. Never mind the fact Boomer is still dominating and loves the game meanwhile he got told by Hawthorn to pack his bags. Flog.

But he said on the 360 the other night that players don't retire, they get pushed, indicating he would have played on with Hawthorn.

So by his own logic, Harvey is still playing well enough, and Brian Harris-Lake-Douchecanoe wasn't.

Maybe just a little salty.

Obviously still a bit salty about that marking contest where Boomer showed up Lake for the squib he was.

Remember the last time someone said Boomer was selfish (jermie), Boomer come out and played a blinder that weekend. Il take one of those tomorrow.

campaigner could have used the $150k

Heard from a mate that dealt with him he had credit cards declining left right and centre, trying to sort the tab for a couple of vodka redbulls
