Aker in the news

 I have been reading the news articles lately on my phone trying to get a footy fix and I can't believe the rubbish that Ajer is dribbling from whining about being labelled not a team player to how Barry Hall ruined his career and cost him 2.5 million dollars, what a joke even when he is trying to defend himself and tell us that he is a team player he only uses the word I.

 The problem is these days

Tue, 2020-05-05 06:47

 The problem is these days it's all about the all mighty dollar. It's not like it used to be where people played the games for the fun and glory of it all. 

How many players do you think would stick around if it was all put back as a basic wage each week , my guess very few. Back in the day players had to have a real job to make ends meet .

Hungry

 If they had have been playing in the same era, Aker would have beaten Kevin [Hungry]Bartlett in kicks for goals as both seemed to forget how to handball if within 50 metres from goal

 He certainly loved the run

 He certainly loved the run around the back of the guy lining up for goal from outside 50, he could easily get the distance though left or right foot no worries at all.

 Didn't think I was going

Tue, 2020-05-05 17:41

 Didn't think I was going down any real path. Aker was a great player, just all the crap in the news at the moment as we have no real footy to follow. I don't really agree with some of the crap that I was reading. I took the misses and kids out for a fish on Saturday was only out for about 2 hours stayed in close only got 6 small squid and some shit fish had enough for dinner though so happy enough.
