He’s pretty unprofessional Tony Cochrane.
In isolation that looks bad, but I thought he held himself pretty well considering the baking he was copping. Was refreshing honesty. Roo got a little antsy at the end of the interview too and probably came off second best.
I can’t stand Cochrane but they were going hard at him.

Agreed, if you dish it out you need to be able to take it.

Chris Scott on radio......everyone (public and media) should show Selwood a bit of respect and believe him when he says he didn't do something intentionally.
(as in stand on his leg).

Sorry, but he has had too many incidents of fingers near eyes etc for me to respect him. You can even notice him looking up to see if anyone is watching him. He may be a very good player, but has a reputation as a ducker and sniper - not for no reason.

Didn't stand on the leg intentionally but did eye poke or whatever the other incident was intentionally. He is a dirty player when things aren't going well, similar to Trent Cotchin.

Yep completely agree - the leg thing was completely accidently, the other incident was not.

He's a bit of a character at least. He's sounds like a campy, angry Kochy with a chip on his shoulder. he's good for up there because he creates a bit of us against the world competition.

I like him, I like the fact he stands up for his club like that. If he actually was a good operator I'd love him at our club.

That quote is wrong too, that's not exactly what Cochrane said.
Gold coast also have better average crowd numbers than GWS and Norf.

In 2019 they finished dead last and were averaging 75% of the crowd that GWS were who played in a grand final.

On the field they're a shambles but he seems to be doing pretty well off it all things considered.

I don't know if you agree with my comment or not lol. I don't think he has been very good, but I do understand how difficult it must be to grow the club in a non-AFL market.

I think they have a great list building, if they can hold them together they will get a huge spike at some point.
