You're correct dazzle, it is a terrible comment , if it is construed to mean lacks courage. Anyone who plays footy at that level does not lack courage.
I was at the game on Saturday and payed particular attention to Viney and I wan't to share some observations.
There were two occasions, I won't detail them, where he ran flat out to make a contest that he could not possibly make. But he just would not give up.
Another of note is after Kossie kicks the matchwinner and players surround him laughing and congratulating him. You see Viney near the group but not actually joining in ..... simply because he is totally and utterly [censored].
My point is that Viney is a totally maniacal competitor ........ he just can't seem to help himself... it's in his nature.
Weid has skills .... he has demonstrated that but he lacks that total competitiveness of a Viney. Jack Watts was a bit like that.
Some players have it ....and they play above their skill level. Others don't and either succeed or not.
That's just humanity I suppose.
