Last week marked the return of Matt Rowell, and with it, the memes. In the lead up to the Suns and Dockers match, the internet was back at it with the Rowell obsession.

Since his debut, Rowell has just played the seven games but he captured the hearts of everyone. In his first four games he produced three straight best on ground performances, and has since achieved cult status in the AFL.

Let's take a look at some other cult figures in footy, obscure, forgotten and memorable. Some who won't make the list will be who were/are well known, such as Brendan Fevola, Barry Hall and Dane Swan.

6. Relton Roberts

Despite just playing two games for Richmond, Relton Roberts gained himself the status of cult hero in the AFL community.

In his second game, Roberts was knocked out and never seen at AFL level again.

He played just a handful of games for the Tigers VFL affiliate Coburg, where he got into trouble for breaking night curfew and eating a hamburger before a match.
