On Footy Classifieds last night, Nathan Brown, Tony Jones and Eddie pulled up Kane Cornes (a little) over his Walsh v Rozee routine.
I have no prob with Cornes thinking Rozee is a better talent than Walsh or airing that opinion in public. He is a football 'journalist' after all (sort of). But he has turned this into an ongoing and very public campaign. And he has showed himself to be a campaigner.
The more I think about, incessant commentary on kid A vs kid B at 19-20yo is probably unfair on all involved. You wanna do a Judd vs Hodge debate >5 years after they debuted. Fine. Interestingly, that match-up didn't even become a fair fight until they were 10+ years into their careers. But so much commentary on kids (especially when there is a lot of evidence to suggest Kane is wrong) just shows he is just a penilecranium chasing headlines.
And no, I do not watch Footy Classifieds (Thy TM)
