Since late April when I wrote my last article, The AFL Man-Crush, I’ve been meaning to write a piece on the opposing concept, the blokes I hate. Life often gets in the way of these things and I just never got around to it. Frustrating though it is, sometimes when dealing with motivation for those things to do with our interests and hobbies that have no financial reward, we need a bit of a spur.
Something must happen to give our inspiration that little shove. Number 1 on my list of AFL players I hate is Tom Bugg, and last night he gave me a beautiful push in the direction of the keyboard when he gave Callum Mills a disgusting left jab to the face. Man, I hate that guy.
The list doesn’t exactly have a theme to it, but if I could pluck something out I’d say it would be the perception of arrogance, or lippiness, which is not even a word. There does seem to be a strange over representation of sneering midgets.
So, at risk of outing myself as one of those reviled “keyboard warriors”, below I have listed my current players most hated.
