Can you imagine how big a news storm it would be if he didn't claim to be thankful? Scripted PR statements like that are something I take with a huge grain of salt.It certainly didn’t work out and I can understand people not being happy about him being given a last game and carried off by the opposition but why do you say he not thankful?
He’s certainly said publicly this week he is thankful, so wondering what makes you say he’s not?
His actions however don't show a whole lot of gratitude. Gratitude in my mind would be shown by him busting a gut everytime he wears Crows colours; yet so many times when he was playing at the top level I saw him avoiding the tough stuff; avoiding getting too physical or doing team first things to help out others (shepherding etc).
