    Without meaning to give more air to the guy, I thought it would be interesting to collate underhanded actions the guy has/may have made to the detriment to the Crows. I'd thought he was a bit of a raving nutter but it sounds like he has/may have done some rather sh!tty things against our club.

    Facts would be good of course, but rumours would at least bring things to light for discussion.

    So to get things rolling...

    Thanks, wasn't aware that thread existed.

    Quite possibly - would have to be pretty messed up person to get off on negative stuff on himself - will bin it if there are enough calls to do so.

    Pathetic passive aggressive flog.

    Under the guise of appearing complimentary he now looks to build the pressure associated with sitting 2nd.

    As the weeks roll by watch for articles pointing out our lack of finals success and how "the pressure of finals failure is building"

    Scum of the earth

    The whole point of his article is:-

    Now the Crows have to deal with 12 weeks of high expectation.

    think the worst thing he's ever written (that i saw) was his relentless bullying of neil craig in his columns for no particular reason. and not just about him as a coach, but as a person. thought that that sort of stuff is always immature and just uncalled for, not matter what side it's about. leave that kind of shit for the dregs of the internet, not as the chief football writer in a footy mad state.

    glad that both clubs have basically frozen him out. he's an absolute bottom feeder who clearly gets off on character attacks and trying to make himself look like the big man.

    Rucci operates on a narrative that he wants to pursue with both clubs, Port and the Crows. My information comes from a board member at Port Adelaide in 2011 so I can only assume that if he was willing to do it to Port he would have almost certainly done it to the Crows.

    My source told me Rucci was famous for extorting the clubs for information or he will run with fake stories to feed his narrative. The clubs can't fight those stories because he will hide behind fake sources that he says are out there. Now considering he seems to be on Ports side at present I can only come to the conclusion that Port pulled him aside and offered him a deal for peace. I presume to remove as much negative press as possible so they can build the membership base. The Crows don't need to build their membership base because it just grows no matter the press. Judging by his views, I think it's obvious the Crows have and always will just ignore him no matter the crap he writes.

    But yeah believe me when I say PAFC hated him just as much as the Crows....back then anyway.

    How about a thread titled. Things you would rather do than read a Rucci article?
