Parker's AFL stats at St Kilda (2019-20):

10 disposals, 2.7 marks, 3 tackles & just under a goal per game.

https://afltables.com/afl/stats/players/M/Matthew_Parker.html

At the Saints there were question marks over his attitude. Got pushed out of their forward line and side once Dan Butler & Max King was drafted in 2020 alongside Tim Membrey with Marshall/Ryder rotating as ruck-forwards.

This guy was talked about a bit before the PSD.

As above, had big attitude issues. Got dropped on form according to Saints fans on BF and then had a look, thinking he was the ducks nuts and deserved to be playing.

Hope he's grown up a bit.

The highlight reel is worth a look from memory.

Highlights have got a lot of Mitch Robinson about them. But not in a good way. 

But he's a a tiger now.  Will learn to love him

Article about his delisting from the Saints:

Parker played 17 games and kicked 16 goals in 2019, but managed just two games this season as he fell behind the likes of recruit Dan Butler in the pecking order.

“This was a really difficult decision to make,” St Kilda head of list management James Gallagher said.

“Matty has such an incredible spirit and it’s easy to see why he was so quickly embraced by Saints fans.

“Unfortunately the situation we find ourselves in demands tough choices, and this was one of them.

“We thank Matty for his dedication to the club and wish nothing but the best for him.”

Is he the smarmy bloke that used to be alittle too irritatingly excessive when taking a Mark or kicking a goal?

....Actually I just watched the highlights and yep that’s him.

Well if he’s wearing the great yellow and black and is able to tackle pressure and kick goals he can celebrate any bloody way he wants.
The club that keeps giving.

Dud, delist.
“50-29 felt like the game might be over – 35-50 felt like it was over. Geelong would not get a chance to breathe again. Suffocate and surge – that is Richmond’s game. Make it feel like there’s no space, then make it feel like there’s too much space, a transition that happens in a split second”
