Now, as much as we here at Half Back Flanker love to pay out on those players that drive us nuts for whatever reason, we have to give credit where it is due. No matter how begrudgingly that credit is delivered.
So it is with mixed emotions that we give sneaky St Kilda forward Stephen Milne credit for playing through a nasty looking facial injury during St Kilda’s vital win in Perth on Sunday. As a result, Milne was unable to fly back with his teammates and forced to hit the road! He is currently being driven the thousands of kilometres cross country back to Melbourne by a St Kilda official and hopes to be back at the club later today. Talk about an unwanted road trip…for the driver!
His fractured cheekbone will most likely keep him out of this week’s home game against Adelaide so there is no great hurry to get him back to Melbourne. So, why don’t they take him on a tour of outback Australia and give him the chance to explore some of the great regions in the remote parts of the country? Like Uluru…or Kakadu National Park…or what about Wolf Creek? Ok, that was unnecessary. But we can’t help it…it’s Stephen Milne, for goodness sake!
In non-twerp news:
- Hell hath no fury like a footy journo/fan boy’s scorn for Port Adelaide!
- What else can North Melbourne do to become Geelong’s biggest threat for the premiership? Perhaps they can slip their phone number to Nicole Kidman…that seems to work!
- Here’s one for fans of irony…who is the AFL footballer who would prefer to get busted for driving with a suspended license than getting around on his own two feet? Yep, Andrew Walker!
- Footballers beware…you are about to be ambushed by potent Powerpoint presentations! Professional, persuasive, deadly!!!
