The two can’t stay away from each other, and it seems no matter how hard they try to separate, the keep reuniting with even bigger flames and sparks each time.
The latest saga comes after his controversial gay comments about AFL players made earlier this month.
After as series of ‘he said, she said’s’ the club has finally decided to take action on the besieged star.
But, issue aside, critics are calling for his head all together after some below-average performances this year.
Aker has been far from the player he was, kicking only two goals this year, and with all major stats well down on average compared to last year.
The triple premiership player made his decision to kick on in 2010 after his form was so impressive late last year.
How quickly people forget.
10 rounds into the season and it’s already being talked about dropping Aker to the VFL, with much doubt about him ever returning.
Yes, it is true he has been down on form compared to last year, but to say the game is past him is very brave.
Akermanis is a game turner, much the same as Paul Medhurst, Steve Johnson and Leon Davis.
All three players have the ability to win games, but can also have games where they barely touch the ball.
At the end of the day, form is temporary and class is permanent.
You don’t forget how to ride a bike overnight, and Aker sure has not lost his talent and hunger.
There is still more than a half of footy to go this year, and I have no doubt the fiery red head will prove the AFL world wrong by seasons end, as he always does…
