Jacko is actually quite a nice guy.Seriously good footballer and the loosest of loose cannons.
The game needs more Mark Jacksons.
Wasn't suggesting otherwise...Jacko is actually quite a nice guy.
My ex was very good friends with his sister and she had nothing but good things to say about the family.
Loose cannons maybe but loose cannons s with heart.
I didn't think you were.Wasn't suggesting otherwise...
I meant his on-field antics and his "I don't give a sh*t what anyone thinks of me" attitude.
and that just about sums up everything that is wrong with footy.What don't you like?
"How long have you got? The game they’re playing now isn’t the game I played. And it was a game, not a flamin' business. The game has been hijacked and it doesn’t give the public a fair go. Where are the flamin' entertainers? The game is sterile and as dry as salt. They’re paying big money, which I think is great, but at the same time players are squeezed so hard in their contracts that they’re not allowed to have a flamin' personality, and it affects the entertainment."
Willing to wager the people that want Jackson types back in the game, wouldn't want them on their team. Unless they have no desire to see their team win.
And by not bothering to check anyone and giving away stupid free kicks, he cost his side just under 5 goals per game.
And would cost his side 6 goals a game by not creating forward line defensive pressure, plus copious acts of stupidity and lack of discipline.
You look at Jacko's VFL record (308 goals in 82 games, held goalless just once, in his 80th game), and think "Geez, he must have been pretty good under all the silliness", but then you realise he played in just 22 wins over his 82 VFL games, and the above quotes start to ring pretty true as well.Willing to wager the people that want Jackson types back in the game, wouldn't want them on their team.

Matthews showed a lot of courage that day hitting a bloke who wasn't lookingAfter it took about 6 Geelong players to beat him up. Wacko Jacko wouldn't have had the guts to confront Matthews ... even after he was beaten senseless. Courage wasn't Jackson's strong point.
