Different sport but apparently Bradman was an a-hole
Wow!John Nicholls is a dick. Should never have been voted our #1 player ever.
Whitten was not a nice family man and should not just be remembered as a good footballer who treated his mates/players better.Liberatore was a dirty and ugly player, you dont want guys like him representing your club, and has never been held to account. completely brushed over his squirrels. Whitten was a cystic old bastard as well. even if he wasnt so hateful, he was a footballer but he's talked about like he invented spray-on skin for burn victims.
West Coast had a drop kick skills coach ... had all the young blokes kicking tennis balls to change their kicking styles. Suddenly good young footballers were second guessing themselves.
- Didn’t live up to expectations after a 3 Brownlow vote game in his first season, plus being overhyped as ‘best 16 year old Michael Voss has ever seen’;
- Played when WC needed some of their many early draft picks to become A graders;
- Lost confidence in his kicking and started shanking them (mind you so did the rest of the midfield back then - Ebert, Selwood x2, Waters, Priddis, Masten, Rosa, Houlihan);
- Odd appearance and gait;
- Most footy supporters are dumb campaigners...
= Easy whipping boy
I agree (particularly re Ablett), having said that, I haven’t seen many Carlton fans (including your posts) listing the man their best and fairest is named after, “Gentleman” John Nicholls. Convicted of embezzlement and larceny in the 60’s and then 7 counts of fraud in the 80’s.
No not really, at least he called it quits.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.
Not sure ashamed is the right word but Jacko was an absolute arse clown. Made every game a circus and constantly did things that went against the team goals. He was very talented but so selfish he makes Gary Ablett Senior look like the ultimate team player. There is a reason why he played for four clubs and was booted out of all of them.Why Jacko? He was funny af. Need more characters like him, not that it will ever happen.
I've never understood why supporters disliked Tom Swift so much, and it wasn't only at AFL level it was in the WAFL too.What exactly did Swift do to attract ire?
