See, I like clarity of language. It's a bit of a thing. I'd vastly prefer everyone know what I'm talking about when I speak, and for there to be a connotation of the dirty scumbag's cheating behind the word than to convey the notion of their cheating but for everyone not to know to whom it refers.

yep, thank christ they've basically been sitting on their hands whilst we have been rebuilding...........
Been more akin to watching them kick own goals over and over again, such is the degree they've gotten it wrong with pretty much their entire list management direction since they got their players back.

I'm pretty sure most here know what * refers to. Particularly in this thread.

I used to like and respect Woosha, but he clearly has been infected/brainwashed by the arrogance Essendon and its entitlement mentality.

I think it's perfectly fine and natural for any Irish lads to go home and play some Garlic footy with their friends and former teammates, provided they are properly prepared for injury prevention.000

We don't need more bad blood between the AFL and GAA.

I used to like and respect Woosha...
Why?

He's a chemist who coached a club with the worst in house drug problem, with the least interest in fixing it as long as results aligned on field. His tenure at WC has resulted in any number of his players being unable to move back to civilian life after their careers due to addiction and having not been provided any options for post career jobs. While they certainly can and do bear the consequences of their own decisions it is completely perplexing to me how Worsfold gets away scot free for his role there.

He was a leader. Many compare their coach to their father. He either didn't care, or didn't have an opinion, and that lack ruined any number of lives over there. Worsfold is - to my mind - the perfect match for Essendon, because he and they both have demonstrated utterly no remorse for their respective roles in their sordid history, and because both involved copious amounts of drugs consumed that may have had a role in improving onfield performance. And, if there was little to no oversight over WC's recreational activities, it certainly makes me wonder how a number of those players got as strong as they were, as fit as they were.

And he didn't want to coach us. Praise the football Gods.

Being a WA boy I have had a dislike for him as a player and coach, he was idolised in the Hird mould over there. Glad he is at *, they deserve each other.

* Also refers to them as a Chocolate starfish

I think it's perfectly fine for a coach to be annoyed that one of his players played organised sport without seeking permission.

I have no doubt in my mind they were on something.

I remember someone saying they after a pre season they all of a sudden turned to men.

Nah mate, that’s a sh*t thing to do and I’d be f*n ropeable if he was playing for us.

Ciaran Byrne had decided his career was finished, however, in his first game back playing Gaelic put himself out of competitive sport for 12 months. If he was still on the list at the time and played and injured himself that badly I would have been up on the rafters here baying for instant dismissal

Didn't he break his ankle whilst still listed and then retire? Retired on the 7th October, article on the 15th on CFC wishing him a speedy recovery after breaking his ankle at the weekend. Club came out a said they knew he was playing Gaelic?
