Angry Kirk was the first ever HT player to receive a non-HT face. He was also nicknamed James T by his owner while playing for Kimber FC. He succeded in play 2 matches for the Oceania U-20 NT before his career was suddenly stopped (by controversy).
It may be short-lived, but here it is, saved for posterity for all to see.
The Birth of a Legend
Angry began his career as a member of youth academy, where he grew as virtual unknown until he was promoted and then listed in the Excellent Youth Pull thread for that week. He was promoted to the senior team at 17 years and 8 days, a good age for Under 20's NT, with Excellent Winger and Inadequate Passing.
It didn't take long for someone to link his name to Captain Kirk (early Star Trek movies/series) and being angry. "Fire phasers!" was one of the first comments in the thread. It was all taken in great humor and within 7 posts, the current 'photo' was linked to the player by a certain GM-DrKeps, a long-time visitor to the Oceanian Forums, a frequent contributor, and a past U20 manager of Oceania. Within hours the photo appeared.
Here is the thread link and the post where GM-DrKeps, founding the name amusing, asked if HTs could change the face to what we later could see:

His coming was greeted with great mirth, and all in Oceania celebrated the amazing gift that had been bestowed on our proud nation. There were no posts of protest, at all. However, within 24hrs, a great debate broke out on Global, discussing the pros and cons of such an 'easter egg', and appearing in such a way.
The opinions being shared were about 50/50 for and against 'Angry Kirk'.

|I'm the proud owner of Angry Kirk, and yeah I can see your point, but I never asked for any of this to happen. The HT's took a liking to him and decided to make him "special". As others have said, he is just like the old Bob Sunesson - an "Easter Egg"...
I don't plan on reaping any additional rewards for having him. I was a winger trainer before he was promoted, and I'll stay a winger trainer until he hits 21 (at least). My hope is to try and get him into the NT, not to sell.
IF the time does come where he is to be sold, and IF he happens to go for more than a fair price, by all means, the HT's can adjust it. I more than likely won't sell him though, and if he keeps the pic, will one day promote him to the Hall of Fame. Hell, he already deserves it! :D
I, along with heaps of other users take my HT quite seriously, which is why I'm a Supporter. That being said, I think it should been seen for what it is, just a bit of fun.
