Nothing. You're right.

I'd drop him.

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.

Congrats Croker. My dog had to be put down at the age of 15 the other day, his spirit was with me and we were both riding home that awesome sideline conversion. It was never in doubt. RIP little buddy :cry:

I can't remember there ever being a draw for top point scorer - so there is usually only a single player who wears the No.1 point scorer crown.

In 2015 he is the Canberra Captain Jarrod Croker. He will have some pressure from within the Club with Sezer joining the Raiders, but I can't see Sticky changing from a player who now kicks so well under pressure. That sideline conversion was a cracker. He has come a long way since the Farah sledge.

I never know if these posts are overcooked satire or the genuine rantings of the slightly unhinged.

Yeah, sure you'll have a better chance if you're the team's goalkicker, but you still have to ACTUALLY KICK THEM.

I mean, the flipping Origin kicker is only at 65% for his club, and Jarrod kicks at 84%. Which, correct me if I'm wrong, is actually the best conversion rate in the league. So it's not like Jarrod was just handed this one on a silver platter.

The top point scorers are always goal kickers and Croker is extremely lucky this award is given after 26 rounds and not after the competition is actually decided.

Yep. Much like anyone who wins the Dally Ms is extremely lucky they only gauge that on the 26 rounds of the regular season instead of including the extra games some teams play at the end of the year. :roll:

I guess by IronRaiden's logic Croker is also extremely lucky he also kicks goals, or he probably wouldn't win it either.

Are people still moaning about Croker and somehow suggesting he is lucky to be the top point scorer let alone the captain or even a starting centre?

Bunch of idiots.

Top point scorer is awarded every year.

He has beaten at least 15 other goal kickers.

And he has beaten every other player to win the award.

Only 1 player can win it and Toots is that player. Not anyone else

Yeah. Fancy being 24 and on your way to being a record point scorer for your club!

Pure luck. It's all because he can't defend or pass the ball, Yknow

:lol: Do you honestly think a front rower who is not a goal kicker could possibly win this award?

I'll tell you how meaningless it is, it's a team effort award given to their goal kicker. Even Croker admits it's meaningless cause he'd give it up to be playing next week.
