    Can anyone explain to me how this absolute ******* of a journalist has suddenly become a big part of Triple M's footy team? Have they really fallen that far that they need this bloke to give his clueless analysis on footy combined with his ability to talk absolute bullshit about players?

    The bloke sitting in the local pub would be better suited at actually talking about football.

    Suddenly ?

    He's been on the Friday / Saturday Rub for years. But you're right he's a flog of the highest order.

    Recently though Channel 9 and Triple M are spamming his views all over social media like he's an authoritative voice on the footy.

    If I have to listen to this pretentious peanut voice his pointless opinions on AFL I'll spew
    I don't watch the footy show anymore cos of this campaigner and refuse to listen to triple MMM cos his gossipy fish wife comments make me sick
    Get this campaigner off the radio and tv and let this four eyes go back to working behind a desk where he belongs
    **** off campaigner

    How does this thread not have more comments. campaigner should carry a pot plant around to replace the oxygen he steals wherever he goes. Waste of space, food and skin.

    He has the definitive 'adult man who still lives with his parents' look and demeanour

    I actually read his sliding doors thing he writes on the AFL Website on Friday. He repeatedly made mention of Cale Hooker missing the game and how happy Buddy would be. Now before Friday Buddy was averaging just under 6 goals a game against Essendon in the last 10 times he has played them. More importantly Hooker has played forward all year. Do these ******* guys even watch footy?

    He is an awful, awful writer.

    Let's set aside that these are no longer structured as "sliding doors" hypotheticals. He just makes a series of statements that have been reworked to fit the template.

    Why does he insist on referring to himself with a plural form?

    For example: "If the Blues are often difficult to watch from a purist perspective ... then that changes any time Charlie Curnow goes near the ball. Already one of our favourites."

    Or: "If the club isn't prepared to say it publicly ... then we will. There is an issue with the training surface at the Holden Centre.

    Hey dick snap, there's only one of you. Stop trying so hard.

    His Taylor Walker thank you letter was the biggest piece of shit ever. Sucked up rather than doing journalism and completely ignored he disappeared when his club needed him most, but praised the power stance.
