Oh and yeah im with K4E, from the **** he did when he was young, to the DD, and the numerous snipes he's racked up along the way, he's gone from my 'boys will boys good bloke' to flog category, was a big fan, but not anymore.
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.
AFL great Brian Lake is planning to appeal after he was deregistered from all levels of football for one final strike on the weekend.

AFL legend Brian Lake plans to appeal against a lifetime ban after he was deregistered from football for an incident on the weekend.
Lake, who won three premierships with Hawthorn, was banned from playing footy at all levels after receiving a two-match ban for striking in a local Victorian competition during Caroline Springs’ win over Sunshine on Saturday.
The penalty saw him fall foul of the national registration policy, which rules any player who racks up 16 weeks worth of suspensions in their career is unable to play football at any level.
Lake has now been banned for a total of 21 matches across his career. He was able to play on past the 16-week mark because AFL players receive a 25 per cent discount, but his latest indiscretion took him over the edge.
However, Lake has vowed to fight his ban.
Boomer still playing at local level and dealing with suburban snipers just like Lake. Manages to avoid belting them. Because he's not a campaigner who is disliked by every team mate he ever played with.
