    And/or extensive shit tattoos with lots of writing (probably some kind of motto and names of various family members - must be unusual names if kids)

    Incredibly accurate. People often say that Dustin Martin is a "good bloke" and is "as tough as they come"

    Did a few nice things: Took a nice mark and made a kick that hit a leading forward on the chest but otherwise was unsighted

    Taking it one week at a time: I don't know who we play after next week or where we are on the ladder.

    Solid contributor: I can't remember seeing him during the game, but he had decent stats so he must have done something right.

    Smart footballer - slow but skillful/probably past it but clinging on week in week out.

    Goal sneak - selfish cherry picker/least favourite player in the team.

    Star - any player in the top 10 of the winning team on the day.

    Need a goal badly - teams at least 40 points down with 5 minutes to go.

    Captains goal - Captain goals when his team is behind.

    Crowd pressure - your teams interstate and being raped by 3 umpires.
