    I think so. It makes no sense
    I really can't work out his point. I understand the perception vs reality concept, but I really can't see the point he is making other than perception is the acutal reality of the AFC. In which case, why write the article? I could understand writing the article if perception is not reality, but not the other way around.

    So bascially, you are saying that I am looking for meaning where there is none.

    The guy is a tool but that article had some truth to it.

    The perception is that our premiership window is open and we have a group of players and a coach who can win a flag.

    The reality is we are an above average club that doesnt bottom out, makes the finals most years but dont have the right mix to win a flag.

    And yes I feel dirty for seeing some merit in a Rucci story.

    That article is very poorly written, I have no idea the point he is trying to make but have just assumed that it is that the Crows are bad because we didn't get Gibbs, Barlow or a footy manager from outside the club. Whilst not a terribly controversial point of view (many on here have stated similar at various times), it conveniently forgets that we didn't want to pay too much for Gibbs (fair enough), Barlow may have wanted a bigger offer than we were willing to pay, and that a better candidate may not have been available / interested.But why give a balanced view I guess, I'm sure the website hits are up

    Nah he's just desperate for someone to fight through the articles celebrating Trump's win to his little article.

    It's Penberthy and I don't think he's the Sunday Mail editor at all.

    It's a demented rant!

    No doubt embarrassing the other journos while he's at it !

    Interesting that the follow up on the Rucci 'Sloane should be captain says nobody important' article is Tex talking to Capel.

    Sh!t almost spat out my coffee this morning after reading Rucci's article. He actually referenced Adelaide's penalties from the Tippett affair in comparison to the latest GWS scandal, in favour of Adelaide

    You're saying he's saying GWS are more heavily penalised than we were?

    Well, look forward to GWS losing 3 first round and 3 second round draft picks then :drunk:

    And I thought "organic" was a euphemism for costs a fortune, makes you feel good but tastes the same.

    The Gibbs thing is a classic glass half full/empty scenario, while we didn't land Gibbs we also showed that we aren't a club that can be bullied into paying overs which could be looked at as a positive for the club.

    In typical Rucci fashion he is trying to paint Adelaide as incompetent for not landing Gibbs yet when Port lost Nick Stevens for nothing he was very quick to praise Port for being brave for not being bullied into a bad trade deal.

    Were Port also brave for not being able to trade Hartlett and Lobbe due to their inflated salaries and contract lengths?

    Maybe as brave as Boak was when he hooked up with Hartlett's ex and cheated on Renee for the billionth time.

    It's ironic too for him to question our captaincy when the guy that he's been championing as being "one of the best leaders in the AFL" stuggles to keep his dick in his pants and has a history of infidelity.

    Rucci just thinks that by trying to keep things out of the SA print media and shouting down anyone that says anything will somehow stop people from finding out.

    The Boak /Harlett thing will come out eventually - it always does.

    Regards his crack at Tex via Grant Thomas, I have to wonder just what pond slime he'll engage to make derogatory remarks about Crows players next?
    Grant Thomas ....pppfffttt
    As much of a nobody as Rucci.

    I guess Tex being voted the best captain by the other captains is nothing worth mentioning.
    His bitterness is beyond the pale these days.

    He's saying at what point should a club be held accountable for their employees. It appears GWS weren't held accountable, yet AFC were.


    If we apply the same principle as what currently appears to allow GWS not to be penalised, then he said the AFC should then question why the AFC were penalised when the board didn't know of the secret Tippett contract.

    Same argument that others on these boards have asked.

    Problem is the AFL was run by Demetriou who hated the Crows and now we have McLaughlin and friends who have no idea. Trigg was a company man who took a bullet for the team.

    I am a fan of GT. Snarky old man who wants to be in the spotlight. Gotta love it when you combine it with insider knowledge.

    Seems to fit Rucci's criteria for a "credible source" then :D

    Hell BF seems to be his source most weeks. GT is the cream.
