  1. Are you kidding! Do you not recall the tunnel ball?
  2. Farewell Jack Watts

    Irony there Slim. It will be interesting though.

    Yes, he was taken to task on more than one occasion around training efforts (or so we have been told and I accept it) but this seems to have evolved into a narrative where 24/7 he didn't give a shite. I call absolute BS on that. It's keyboard warrior stuff where judgements are made from hearsay. I have watched enough live games of Jack Watts to feel disappointed with the out of kilter assessments about him - maybe they are a reflection of the world we are now in.

    It's fine. These things happen.

    That's very true JR. And the club put him front and centre as our Messiah when he clearly wasn't ready for it. The disaster that was that first Collingwood match still sticks with me.

    Great to see you're taking the Pol Pot ground zero approach in wanting to remove all history of Jack Watts from the MFC. Did he nick your gf SFebey? You're overly damning on him and relentlessly so.
  7. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    To be honest, I'm not sure who I would play at CHB. Oscar? I think I'd be playing Lever on a flank as a third man up - his Adelaide role.

    You'd have Lever at CHB?

    I think we may have viewed the clip differently IDIG. I didn't have a problem with the little dig and liked his comment on barracking for the club. The bloke has real personality which is one of the reasons why so many of us will be sad to see him go. And to be fair, it is all about him.

    Hoping to turn pro. But since you ask, I found your 'my way or the highway stance' on Jack Watts perplexing. You talk in absolutes and that's what I don't like. You say he was coasting, but he was also injured and returned having to play catch up. Prior to his injury he was plugging holes left right and centre including rucking. You've also put words into his mouth, quote included. Do you know his state of mind in respect to being chosen number 1? I'm doubting it. In respect to loyalty, clearly he hasn't wanted to go. He is being forced out or so we are to believe by the comments made. Where's the 'BS' there? I do get that it's a business but, to my mind, you've effectively labelled him a failure who chooses when to compete and when not to. I don't see it that way, acknowledging he has limitations. 'Stay or go. I don't mind either' is a strange comment in respect to a player who has been a good servant to the club. The Sylvia Plath gag was shite. That bit you got right.
  11. Farewell Jack Watts

    Yes, Sylvia Plath, who could forget. A tale of woe that one.

    I don't want Jack to leave. Absolutely love him. I'm sure many posters can put forward plausible, well founded arguments for Jack and the clubs to part ways ...and I'm not saying they're wrong. It may be a good move for club and player. But I'll miss him if he moves on. For all his faults (which are relentlessly scrutinized), I have no doubt he loves the club. So I'm hoping for a miracle...

    Not even Earl Grey Biffen? A-holes
  15. Would you not buy a Membership if ......

    To be fair, if the club brought in Ty Vickery and made him captain I'd be hard pressed not to have a gap year.
