    Press conference has been called for the next couple of hours, looks like he's going to call time on his career. Would imagine he'll have a fair few regrets about how things played out during his time with the Bombers

    Let's just hope he's learned from the whole EFC drugs saga and doesn't do this presser in double denim.

    Oh here we go, another Jobe Watson thread. Let's see all the Jobe Watson critics come in here are continue to lay into him even though it'll be his retirement press conference.

    I personally feel that whilst the players are responsible to a degree for the supplements saga, the administration is the major culprit. They more than likely hoodwinked the players with regards to the administering of substances, so I feel that they abused the trust of these guys who put lots of trust into them.

    He'll be remembered for the great year he had in 2102.

    The rest of the time he's been pretty average.

    Why do people go into retire threads to bag the player? Noticed the last couple now following suit.

    Correct decision has been made.
    A great servant for the EFC, but he'll largely be remembered as the face of the supplements saga.

    Many will judge his career through the prism of EFC drug scandal but there is no doubting, he is much loved player of the club and its supporters.

    It's Big Footy, it's what's expected.

    Talk face to face with any of these posters and they'll tell a very different opinion, faceless anonymity allows for small people to feel big.
