Tommy "Train" Sheridan. Nearly as good as T-Bone. Probably Tommy the Tank engine would be more appropriate though.

Stacksonthemill
Name: Luke Valente
Nickname: Tin Man
Story: I think it's to do with they're adjusting his running style to make him more durable and so he's running very rigid like the Tin Man.

Adjusting his running style?? Are we forcing AFL approved running styles on our players which is resulting in soft tissue injuries. Just asking.

Interesting point Stackson considering he is one of many out injured. Mickey Barlow had a unique running style that served him well in over 100 AFL games without some fitness "guru" trying to change his style.

I imagine his coming to the club with ongoing groin problems may account for modifying his running style.

I guess the other question would be then, why would we take the risk of recruiting a player who already had groin issues and had such a bad running style that we would have to try and modify it, when there were plenty of other able bodied players available.

I suggest that all players without a current nickname get a generic, "Dud 1", "Dud 2", etc until they prove themselves worthy of a nickname.

I Recon any Player not being labelled with TBC should be given a Nick Name.
We have too many blokes called Calf, Hammy, Strained.
