Brian Stanley Roberts (born 28 April 1946 in
Millicent, South Australia) is a former Australian rules footballplayer who played in the VFL between 1971 and 1975 for the Richmond Football Club(as well as a short stint with South Melbourne in 1975).
Roberts was known as "The
Whale" due to his enormous stature and played as a ruckman.
In the 1976 pre-season he had a "disagreement" with coach Ian Stewart and walked out on South Melbourne.
The Roberts family has connections with Dorchester, UK.
