    He'd of been top 5 in the b&f had he not been suspended. He is a great player, very underrated and will go well in the b&f

    He revealed himself. Google Sabra and Shatila if you want an idea of where he was coming from.

    The main board is not a place to derail a thread towards religion, nor is it a place to hurl a tirade of abuse between posters.

    Take the religion to the SRP board, leave the footy discussion for the main board.

    Hugely dissimilar. Houli's incident was a once-off occurance.

    Stringer's affair with the schoolgirl was multiple times over a 4-5 month period. And that's just one affair

    Based on this, Chris Judd should not get any recognition because he was a dirty thug.

    Where have I said the word "recognition"? That has nothing to do with what I've posted.

    Very well spoken. Probably the first Muslim to win a flag. Also Rance would be one of the first JWs to win one too I'd imagine.

    Houli had been capable of being BOG in grand finals for years now?

    Were you pushing the 'Bachar Houli can dominate grand finals' bandwagon for some time now and I've missed it?

    Like you said, he produced one of his best games and in a Grand Final. Unless you show me your prediction that Houli would dominate off half back in the gf, you are in the same boat as those who didn't know he could do it.

    He's been capable of playing to the level he did and being BOG for years now, yes.

    People have been saying they didn't know he could play that well - it is obvious to anyone who has been watching, as he has played many games to that level (albeit not in grand finals). Trying to compare that to me "not predicting" that he would dominate a grand final is a tad ridiculous.

    Idiotic response.

    I find it funny how you are capable of making the distinction between Bachar Houli playing good footy and the fact he did it on grand final day in your post but you can't process that this very distinction is what people are surprised about.

    I would say the same thing about Eddie betts if he had a 5 goal game on grand final day.. 'I didn't know he was capable of producing that' yes I watch enough footy to know Eddie can kick 5 goals in a game, but it's the very distinction you made which makes all the difference.

    Matthew Wright is 100% capable of producing a 27 disposal 2 goal game but I would be surprised if he could produce it on grand final as would a lot of other people. Can you see the difference?

    Perhaps people should then say that they didn't know he was capable of doing it in a grand final? The statements being made are that they didn't know he could play a game like that, no mention of doing it in a grand final as the qualifier.

    The point is he hasn't been rated as he should by the masses for a number of years now.

    It appears the real question should be: Who hasn't Stringer done?
