Player Poll: Worst taste in music
Anyone who has spent even an hour around a footy club's gym knows that possibly the most important piece of equipment is the stereo system. We asked some of the game's stars whose musical taste could be considered as noise pollution.
Josh McGuire (Broncos)
It's a trainer who has the worst taste in music. Our trainer Jeremy Hickman is Wayne's right-hand man and he has terrible taste. He plays death metal. When we come in to do gym he'll have all the lights off and a strobe light going with death metal blasting. All the trainers get their kits off and lift weights to it. It's pretty gross.
Danny Wicks (Eels)
Probably Nathan Peats. It's just terrible. I can't even listen to it. I don't even know what it is. I can't understand what they're saying so I can't even get a genre on it. It's hardly even music because it's that bad. He might even mix it up himself in his bedroom. I just zone out when it’s on.
Michael Morgan (Cowboys)
(As Johnathan Thurston walks by) 'Johnno' easily. He's got the worst taste in music, the worst taste in clothes. Nah, actually I can't say that because on game day his music is actually pretty good. He's always the headphones around his neck, and he's got the party music getting himself pumped up before a game. I don't know who's got the worst... actually Tau's (Moga) isn't great in the gym. It's all love and RnB music so it gets a bit boring.
David Mead (Titans)
I'd have to say Zeb Taia. He loves all the boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys. There are some girl bands in there too like Pussycat Dolls.
Corey Parker (Broncos)
We've got a pretty good group in that everyone likes a bit of everything. Our trainer, Jeremy Hickmans, he's got the worst taste. It's just hardcore, heavy death metal.
Ethan Lowe (Cowboys)
I don't know. We normally have the same people play music all the time, so a few boys don't actually have a run. Shaun Hudson is always on there playing music. It's all like the 'top 20' stuff. I would have said Ashton Sims (hard rock music) when he was here.
Dane Nielsen (Rabbitohs)
Adam Reynolds doesn't even give anyone else a go but he's got a good mix. He's got some old school stuff there, a bit of techno if the boys need a bit of a pump up in the gym. We give him a bit of stick but he's got the tunes right. There are a few guys who are banned but I won't dob anyone in!
Ben Hunt (Broncos)
There are some shockers in there but I'll say Joe Ofahengaue. He comes in with all kinds of things that I've never heard of before. Me, Cozza and Corey Oates all like our country music so we just sit over in the corner.
Justin O'Neill (Cowboys)
Some boys are in to RnB, some boys are in to country. Jase (Taumalolo) probably has the best, he starts us off after every win. 'Morgs' is a Justin Beiber fan but he does bring out some good beats every now and then. I can't stitch anyone up.
