Barrett overuses adverbs and has the bad habit of running adverbs together. Lowlights from the above include:'regularly arrogantly', and 'punchily and unequivocally publicly.' This is typical of melodramatic literature. Take, for instance, 'prepared to tolerate the facade of continuing a horrendously and hurtfully broken marriage.' I'm not sure if Mills and Boon are still publishing, but if so he has a fallback career.

His writing is exceptionally bad.

His favourite is to describe something as "going very, very nicely", which really is an extraordinarily weak piece of phrasing.

So Barrett thinks Dusty should be the next captain of Richmond

The guy can’t string 2 sentences together

He is an exceptional player not a leader

Barrett you are a ******* muppet
Well, if you ignore the Tigers most likely would prefer Dusty just focus on his football and that Dusty himself has stated publicly he has no desire to even be part of the leadership group and the fact introvert's rarely succeed in any leadership role - then Barrett's opinion may have some validity..?

This is just more Barrett spin for the creation of a narrative promoting further discussion/debate/outrage. If you ask Damo six months from now what he think's of Jack Riewoldt's Tigers captaincy, I'd be shocked if he even recalls his current opinion on the matter - such is his rinse and repeat of mostly click-bait irrelevant nonsense...

Two weeks in a row Damo bags out the blues with ‘dysfunctional’ and ‘rudderless’ board, this guy is a venemous w***er. For once we are taking our time with our re-shuffling and appointments and giving away nothing to the media in terms of the next coach and he then doubles down on his royal opinion that is not how it should be done. Just a gaping a-hole of a person.
