Terrible player or terrible bloke or both?

How Justin Murphy ever darkened our doors got me. There's Ablett but that's post career. Eagles fans must still feel rankled that someone like a Tom Swift ever pulled on their colours.

This will probably turn in to a shit fest of accusations and rumours but here's hoping.

Tom Swift wasn't even that bad. Had some rank kicking but coming off 2 knee reco's it was to be expected. Was treated like shit by the fans, no wonder he retired very early.

Geez, I'm sure there are plenty of skeletons in the closet but Bill Nicholls (six games for us, ten for the Tigers) is one that comes to mind. Currently serving an 11 year sentence for shooting two blokes.

What do expect straight from the drug den of Hawthorn
True.

Then again, I suppose one of our club legends could be a snow-dropper arrested for exposing himself to shoppers on Glenhuntly Rd. Or a guy that is constantly in the media for his association with bikie gangs and South Melbourne tattoo parlours. Or a convicted steroid user.

Those who live in glass hovels and all that.

Geoff Ablett has hardly been covering himself in glory as of late. Terrific footballer. Awful politician.

1) Ian Cervi better known as Ian....triple Brownlow medallist

2) Jake King (Duh)

3) Justin Charles (a bit of a low blow I'll admit as I think he was a nice guy but the first guy to get done for being on the gas)

Anyways the point of the thread was to name players from your own club. Get naming!

Hawthorn's Tyrone Vickery arrested, as part of an extortion probe.
Premiership-winning Hawthorn legend Brian Lake will reportedly face court next month on a host of charges related to an alleged violent rampage.
Glad to see you've seen the error of your ways and you're on the brown and gold bandwagon.
