    Taking one for the team and quoting for posteriority .....

    roach [e].jpg You're still surprised there's still so much .. questioning of what you do in the national anthem?
    fages - smile [e].jpg Ah, look .. I just think there's a thirst for content when it comes to the AFL and it's absolutely fantastic and we're ... we want to prepare for the game to be ready .. and ready and focused, we've worked out something that has done that for us over the last couple of weeks. It's unusual to stand there for the national anthem, it's not a normal preparation .. and so you've got to, you know, come up with something that you think is going to have you best prepared, and the guys have got that at the moment .. and what others say about it is really up to them.
    roach [e].jpg < speaking over another reporter, as usual > If you didn't have to face the opposition like we did like international sports where you're lined up looking at a national flag, would it make any difference to the players?
    fages - smile [e].jpg Yeah, it's hard to deal in hypotheticals, mate, we don't ..
    roach [e].jpg < butts in > No, but it's a simple ..
    fages - smile [e].jpg .. it's ..
    roach [e].jpg < talks over Fages > .. question ..
    fages - smile [e].jpg .. yep, ..
    roach [e].jpg < continues talking over Fages > .. if you have to change the routine to line up ..
    fages - frown [e].jpg .. well we just ..
    roach [e].jpg < going like a freight train now > .. like international teams ..
    fages - frown [e].jpg .. just, yeah ..
    roach [e].jpg < on fire! go girrl! > .. would it change ..
    fages - wtf [e].jpg < thinks: FFS shut up Roach! ** > ... I can honestly say ..
    roach [e].jpg .. what the team does?
    fages - frown [e].jpg .. I can honestly say that we haven't thought about it cos we know we're facing the opposition, so they know that they're going to be staring at them, that's er .. you know, that's just the way it's, it's the way the structure works .. so if they were to suggest that it was going to change, well then, we'd address whether we do that or not.

    Haa haaa Fages owns Rootchi.

    Rooch's vindictive nature knows no bounds.

    I love how Fages condescendingly referred to him as 'mate.'

    You are beyond pathetic Rooch. Go and do something useful and massage Koshie's feet.

    and the only person who is pushing for the teams to stand in a line is Rucci. He's already had a cry and ran to the AFL about it to try and stop it.

    It's the same rubbish that Rucci's been doing for years.

    Everyone knows that his whole stance that "it's disrespectful to the anthem" is pure nonsense, it's just an angle he's using because he's too ashamed to admit that he jealous and worried that it's helping the Crows.

    Port do something and Rucci declares "it's smart and innovative", Adelaide do something and Rucci gets scared and goes looking for an angle to complain about and then goes running to the AFL to try and stop it.

    Rucci does everything by subterfuge and then goes on the radio and plays ignorant about it all and tries to argue his impartiality :drunk:

    Let me confirm for everyone that Rucci definitely reads what we write on here.

    I have relapse in my twitter handle so I decided to follow Rucci on twitter to see what he would do, clearly he recognised my handle from Bigfooty because he banned me straight away.

    LOL

    Thanks for the confirmation Rucci, clearly you're not overly bright because you've just outed yourself :thumbsu:

    Just knowing that you're on here reading everything and then crying yourself to sleep every night about it is absolutely hilarious.

    This is how I imagine Gillon McLachlin deals with Rooch when he calls up the AFL:

    Ok
    Enough
    His writing is bad enough but just flicking through the Sadvertiser - much better reading without that Port shit / and nearly jumped out of my skin when I turned to page 22


    Scared the shit out of me ! A warning on page 21 might have been nice

    Looks like that Rumour Ralph guy is back on Facebook.

    But all his rumours seem to be about Port. I reckon it is Rucci.

    It is proof, but it’s a rare occasion I fully agree with him.

    To be fair Port's 700kay ruckman played in a grand final too after years of fan criticism, pity he was smashed by a former crows rookie

    Nice smack down from one of the most experienced SANFL umpires (or the Williams' sister's father).

    Absolutely no doubt at all. No one talks to him (except Bevo) so he has to find out what's going on from somewhere.

    Ralph has a better strike rate than rucci surely? Also they seem to be the opposite.
    Ralph goes early with a rumor rucci misses out on scoops.

    It's really starting to hurt the 'Chief Football Writer'. His effort in today's Sadvertiser is more of usual innuendo poking, directed at Fagans and Shuttleworth. This is under his subtitle of 'media watch'. What a pathetic piece of work, mate. But then again 'media watching' is the name of the game now with Rootchi. You are a sad specimen.........mate.
