I’m up for $20k if he salutes after getting in at $501.

He’s still @ $101 on SportBet.

I’d settle for a $1500 cash out.
That's good going, i'm not in that ballpark.

I'm thinking about having more on him, $101 on Ladbrokes still. He probably needs one more standout game in the next two weeks to bring him right in. And against the Tigers and Carl who lack ruck strength, he's every chance.

The media genuinely refuse to acknowledge Goldy.

It’s restricted to Gawn, Grundy and NicNat when discussing the top level of rucks.

Absolute cockbrains.
Nic Nat LOL!

Lucky to be in the top 10 ruckman in the league.

A flashy highlight doesn’t make him a great ruckman.

I had a chuckle when they discussed that Reilly O’Brien nearly broke even with Nic Nat last week.

Nic Nat 7 disposal and a couple of highlights.

O’Brien 19 disposals and contributed around the ground.

The messaging should have been the other way, but as you said cockbrains.

Goldy is leading clearances, yet they are fawning all over Grundys clearance numbers.

Goldy has done it at the level of a Grundy and Gawn for longer, yet these sycophants talk of Grundy and Gawn as being generational ruckmen. It’s unfair on the big man, but let’s hope he uses it to spur him on, to prove that the media is nothing more than a collective group of cockbrains.

My favourite non-rating of Goldy was in 2014 when the media was gushing over Blicavs running ability and how he was going to run him into the ground.

Goody proceeded to destroy him.


But Blicavs nearly made an Olympic training squad after Mickey Turner from the Geelong Falcons factory saw him in a coffee queue at Queenscliffe.

Goldie is currently in the top 5 of the coaches award and the only ruckman in the top 10 - NicNat is the next in line.

Goldie is in rare form and clearly the best ruckman in the competition at the moment.

They're all privately queueing up to out money on him for the Brownlow and are trying to keep the odds good.

It’s not necessarily about him winning (if he did I throw a massive rager), but having SportBet pay me out four figures for him not winning.
Yeap, agree.

Just saying it's often a good choice to cash out Brownlow bets on ruckmen. Brownlow needs to fundamentally change its structure for a non-midfielder to win.
