Your MC tonight is Big Boy McEvoy. He can't run this thread down though.

Given the choice between Wingard and Dangerfield, I would take Wingard eight days a week.

As soon as I saw your reply listed in LS I knew it was going to be something Cobblerific.

I'm pretty fond of Cobbler's last one.

It came from the Cobbler Cannons Footy Thread Factory.

Were you wondering what Aker has been up to ever since his footy career came to a miserable end as a homophobic blowhard?

No...?

Well he's been having a Who's the Biggest Dickhead in the Room? competition with everybody's favourite Victorian parliamentary nutjob, Geoff Shaw: Exclusive: Geoff Shaw lets fly at ‘moral cowards’ | The New Daily

I seem to have completely forgotten about Akermanis' homophobia, and just him in general.

It's a shame Aker's career ended in the way it did, what with him being such a twat, because in the early 2000s he was a truly incredible player. Now when I think of him I just think of a dickhead, not of one of the most exciting footballers I've seen play.

Yeah, same - and unfortunately, I feel the same about Carey and Cuz now, and they are absolutely two of the best players I've ever seen.

After Wankard's speccy on the weekend, I went down the Youtube rabbit hole and watched a shitload of screamers over the years, and I really think we take for granted just how amazing they are. You've got entire crowds standing up and cheering after, regardless of the side who took it. Also, I gotta say that a lot of our modern hangers compare favourably to some of those from yesteryear that were instantly declared of legendary status - Modra, Jezza and Ablett's grabs just aren't as pleasing to watch as the big ones by Walker, NicNat and Jurrah, imo. (still nothing tops Moorcroft though, even if Brad Johnson is 3 feet tall).

The speccy is the best thing about the sport I reckon. I could watch some of Modra and Burton's hangers again and again. Jeremy Howe is the best going around at the moment, but Walker is up there with the best of all time, for me.

And then there was Ablett's "mark" against Collingwood over Gary Pert in 1994. Regardless as to whether it should have or should not have been paid, how on earth did he get on top of his shoulders?! Incredible leap.

6ft isn't particularly short though, not even close.

The speccy is one of many things that make Aussie Rules by a fucking mile the best sport in the world. The only thing I can think of in any sport that is as attractive is a cover drive.
