It's a sad day. Salute a legend.

Post  wottagunn on Wed Sep 23, 2009 4:09 am

Well, Essendon superstar and AFL hero Matthew Lloyd announced his retirement today. Today should be a public holiday.
AFL will not be the same without him. He's a true champion.


Some Matty Lloyd facts:

- Kicked 926 goals from 270 games

- Seventh highest goal return in AFL history and the most by an Essendon player

- 15 year career

- All Australian 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003

- Premiership 2000

- Coleman Medal 2000, 2001, 2003

- Average 3.4 goals per game for 15 years

- Kicked over 100 goals in a season for two seasons


What a gun! You'll be missed mate.

Perhaps if you wish to express your opinion on how much afl sucks you should post in the afl sucks thread...

No offence to anti-AFL cunts, but fucking get real - best game going around, bar none!!

and IMHO Hirdy was a bigger champion for Essendon that Sinker-Head Lloyd!!!

Obviously, they will miss Lloyd as a spearhead, but the word champion is bandied about too freely these days..... also, the cunt throws grass up to check the wind when the roof's closed???!!!

It's weird while I growing up, a 15 year career was very common, but these days with the extra strains on the body from the faster games etc, seems like the 15-years career is enough to call a cunt a champion.

Nah, all of this is just BS - fair's fair - he's a Cunt-ion..... sorry, champion.

Hird was greater, of course, but that doesn't mean that Lloyd wasn't great.

I rarely use the word myself but I thought it was particularly amusing that you managed to let it fly 4 times in one post!!! Rolling Eyes
