    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

    The must funked one was us being disadvantaged by the Dean Bailey suspension while there was no rule found to be broken, I think Melbourne had no penalty. We stood by and copped it without a whimper.

    He needs to say a few favorable things about the crows every now and then so when others call his bias he can just quote the article.
    He picked this story as he knows no matter what he says the afl will do what they like which will be most likely favor their pet project in GWS.

    Pretty clear one week out from the draft there going to unfortunately run out of time for a decision, then let the whole incident fade in to distant memory with no penalty rendered.

    If he hasn't gone to Italy yet then I am expecting Rucci to smash us this week about Ben Jarman.

    Alternatively he might hold off to prevent stirring up a hornets nest about drafting him and wait until we miss out on him in the draft before he begins to sink the boots in.

    If he ends up at another club on Friday night, Rucci will have something new to write about ad nauseum for the next decade.

    I saw him down Leigh Street on Friday, so don't think he's gone yet.

    Should we have little comp as to how long it takes for him to jab us and swallow all things Port?

    I'm betting on by Wednesday.

    Difficult one this. Because the Crows played it beautifully and Ben's at the Crows for minimal 'cost', he'll have to take the 'upsetting a legend' line and the last photos I saw of that bullshit was a beaming Darren Jarman so what is a Crows hater to do?
