What do you get if you cross a Lion with a Dog and a Hero with a Villain? …..Jason Aka Manson
This is a tribute to Jason Akermanis, the champion Western Bulldogs AFL footballer sacked in 2010 because his team mates felt they couldn’t “trust him.” Weeks earlier he got the public offside by stating he didn’t think AFL culture was ready to embrace homosexual players into it’s ranks. And in 2006, he was sacked by the Brisbane Lions after a fall out with coach Leigh Matthews.
Aker was no Saint but the Western Bulldogs treated him like a Demon. Hence the Charles Manson reference.
In any event, Aker’s book “Open Season” should make for an interesting read.
