Can't go past Scott Salisbury as my favourite Glenelg player. As tough as they come.

Another I liked albeit he didn't play a lot of senior footy there was Andrew Mackay.

Scott Salisbury was anything but tough. Gutless sniper.

If we are talking gutless snipers then David Granger owns that category. Salisbury would never win an award with "and fairest" as one of the conditions but he was hard at the ball and the player with it. Much like McIntosh

We're not discussing Port Adelaide, nor David Granger, we're discussing Glenelg footballers.

It's quite laughable how any opinion I or others have on a topic very quickly gets turned against the club that person supports, even when completely irrelevant.

Salisbury was a sniper, nothing more, nothing less.

I think being an All-Australian makes you a bit more than a sniper.

i think it funny when Salisburys' name along with the Stringer brothers come up, because we as Glenelg supporters were told we couldn't win finals because our players weren't hard, weren't prepared to cross the line & were happy to be pretty footballers playing pretty football, then these guys come in & Glenelg (in general) were called animals, thugs etc so how can you win ? i'll admit i've seen Glenelg players do stupid things by going too far, but i've seen that from players from every club, some clubs more than others but every club............i'm sure if these same players played today they'd adapt to what is required & what is not acceptable...............

a footnote regarding football (1970's-1980's), in my opinion a thug is better than a sniper, at least the thug will eyeball you

Scott Salsbury was as hard and tough as they come.
He was NOT a sniper.

I don't think we need to post anything about David Granger.
The less said about him the better.

My post page 1 my friend.

thanks mate, sadly i double check and missed it

Can't say I heard it (the achilles), but I do recall it happening.

Just an aside, he gave up a burgeoning media career at 7 to return to his law practice.
I have a recollection that he even did the main news and not just sport. Anybody recall whether this is so?
And we haven't heard from him since. Although was on 5AA in a "where are they now interview" about 5 years ago.

There's a big difference between being hard and being a thug/sniper.

That was the Bays problem there for a while, you have blokes like Symonds and Gibbs running away from shadows and Salisbury and Allan Stringer ( Wayne wasn't the same mould as Allan ) belting blokes.

agreed, absolutely nothing wrong with being hard

the only difference between Alan & Wayne was Alan would do stupid things like step on Darel Harts' leg in a grand final, or punch well before or after the ball, Wayne would hit blokes but hit them in play

oh this will give you Mr Booney & probably others a laugh, a friend of mine from that era played for Glenelg & a day or so later after a Glenelg Port match at footy park, i asked him about the blew on the half forward right on the fence & he told me that he had Russel Johnston in a head lock & wasn't frightened of any player blindsiding him from from behind but there was this old lady waving her umbrella at the players abusing him & a few other bay players & he said he was a bit frightened not so much getting hit by her but getting poked in the eye & losing it
