Pretty ordinary subject , however just chatting to a few lads at work and not one is a fan of David Warner , got me thinking who are Aussie sports people we don’t like ?

Warner is my number 1 by a long long way Tomic is 2 though he really has become irrelevant, Day I lose respect for more an more and not a huge fan of Steve Smith, Liz Cambage.... can I count Kane Cornes:mhihi

You can include Kane Cornes, if I can I count Gary Lyon :))
Number one for me is Phil Mickelson, Tomic a close second.

Renata Stetcher - or more accurately the E German coaches. Raelene Boyle would be rightly remembered at the same level as Betty Cuthbert and Marjorie Jackson had Track & Field been clean in the 70s.

So for me cheats are far worse than dickheads

Wayne Carey. Sooked and whinged to umps, staged. Sniped. Then there was all the off field stuff. I feel a bit sorry for him with his ******** dad, and undisputed champion. But I hated him.

I'm pleased every time Serena Williams is beaten in a major, though I might relent if she could convince a certain fellow Jehovah's Witness to return to his true calling...

I’ve never liked Serena, and I still find it hard to believe that people now give her a pass after threatening to shove a ball down a linesperson’s throat when she got a call she didn’t like.

Better chuck in the world's greatest ever golfer and while we're at it, how's about his looney toon son's best buddy the Trumpster..... allegedly been known to get his sums wrong!
(Yeah, I know he's not technically a sportsman. .... but he plays an awful lot of ******* golf for an extremely busy man!)

Most Saturdays there's a jockey I disrespect.

I know its supposed to be Aussies but most disrespected that popped into my head ATM was Novak Jokavitch (sp.)

He only ever gets injured or ill when hes down 2 sets.

Footy? haven't got much respect for Mason Cox for obvious reasons.

On a positive note, my favourite/most respected non-tigers would be Charlie Cameron, Nick Reiwoldt and Jeremy McGovern.

Never a big Steve Waugh fan, or Ricky Ponting. Both a bit too me me me for mine.
Thought Steve Waugh was a selfish batsman, more concerned with his own record & legacy, time and again sacrificed the tail, batting for the not out.
Ponting just seems like a smug, entitled prick.
