Mitchell was appointed skipper for the Hawks in 2008. Blow me down they won a Premiership. Was this a new Tucky in the making? Nope. Proving unsatisfactory to the Coach and a bit autocratic to players he was sacked after 3 years in the gig. I’m unsure how many Premiership skippers have been fired because no one liked him.
Big Bad Barry Hall was sacked as Swans captain 3 years after hoisting the cup
Unlike Sammy, he wasn't replaced by the greatest skipper in AFL history, but by this weird space cadet...
Then he was sacked from the club 12 months after that...
Nobody liked him. Not even his own mother.
The biggest flog in AFL history was last seen in the ring 12 months ago with Sonny Bill. He's been in hiding ever since.
Well worth a look, if you never saw it.
Hell, well worth another look even if you did see it.
I've time stamped the video to the opening of the 1st round. Don't blink!
