Heartbreaking Player Profile Shows Nick Riewoldt Stitched Up One Of His Biggest Fans
St Kilda legend Nick Riewoldt has been criticised by some following yesterday's controversial 50m penalty that went his way.
While his teammate Tim Membrey took a mark in front of goal late in the game against Fremantle, Riewoldt demanded the ball back from 19-year old Griffin Logue.
Playing in just his 6th game, the naive Logue fell for the trick as Riewoldt watched the ball sail past and earned his side a certain goal.

Now, it has been discovered that Riewoldt stitched up one of his biggest fans.
On Logue's player profile from the Fremantle website, the number 8 draft pick previously had stated that Roo was his favourite player.
Here are some of the answers Logue had provided on the questionnaire:
AFL club supported as a kid: St Kilda
The player from another club you most like to watch: Nick Riewoldt
All-time favourite player: Nick Riewoldt
Favourite sporting hero: Nick Riewoldt
Fair to say Roo may have lost one of his big supporters over the weekend...
