Now that's a fella that's done well for himself. Nothing about his stature or game suggests he's a first grade winger. But he did a wonderful job last season and shut down some of the better and bigger wingers in the game. Good to see blokes like him making a career against the odds.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Is that DCE endorsed? He's no Robert **** Lui.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

If half of our team had his attitude and determination we'd have a lot more than 8 wins.

Christ they are delusional, and hypocrites.

Watching NRL 360 last night, they were discussing these signings. Toovey said something along the lines of "it's good that some other club didn't come in and sign them after the club had done the hard work developing them."

All I could think about was Milford, which was clearly what Kevin Walters was thinking about. The expression on his face was priceless.

Kevin Walters is terrible isn't he. His time on tv over the last couple of years has shown why he's never landed a coaching gig and never will.

Oh, he's ****ing awful, isn't he?? When he commentates and especially his sideline interviews are just deadset cringeworthy!

He's never actually answered what he's been asked on NRL 360. Poor bloke just has NFI.

Shouldn't call him a poor bloke, Wayne Bennett keeps getting him meaningless gigs probably earning him over 100k

Hopefully the Broncos will lose all the Niko brothers especially after losing Taylor and Parcell.
