And to think he'll add another club B&F, a flag, Norm Smith Medal, and Gary Ayres Medal in the next five weeks ;)

top 7 in the coaches award is pretty arbitrary and just makes it look like you're trying to pump him up. He doesn't need you to do that.

Just say 2x top 10

Nah if he's too good in the media someone on here will say that he's being 'distracted' from just playing footy ;)
Pfffft name a single player who spends maximum amount of time in the media and still plays well, Gawn I dare ya.

Asking Oliver if he’s scared of the ‘holy trinity’ when he has already gone past two of them (Admittedly they’re past their prime but still) :drunk:

Trying a first image upload so sorry if it stuffs up.
No human can actually see it but using ultra high speed camera technology (similar to the iphone stuck to the goal post for score reviews) we can now see for the first time how Clarrie does it.

I have heard he’s not very high on the good bloke scale but don’t give a shit personally
Would be one of those guys who rates off the end of the good bloke scale with his mates and off the other end of the scale with others. His on field play rates him as a good bloke in my book!

Also a big **** you to monotone richo and brownnosing lickspittle ling for criticising clarry on getting pushed over, when both their respective club's have more prolific divers that would make Matthew mitchem blush.
Particularly Richo who stood up for Rance when he actually dived. Like two months ago.

I thought Oliver came across as a bit of a dick during that interview personally.
I think he’s your typical, slightly slow, slightly low on confidence young bloke who tries to compensate with bravado or putting up a wall, and it just doesn’t really come across well. He’ll get there. When BT asked him about Brisbane, the whole thing changed as it broke through his act a little, broke the tension and got him smiling.

Plus, most people could be forgiven for acting like a dick to roaming Brian anyway.

It is the nature of the ginger to strike out their own path. These creatures from birth are intended to live and die on their own. Social graces and companionship are foreign to them.
