Latrell Mitchell has to be the most overrated, overhyped player in the league. Makes way too many errors and mistakes.
Were you watching the same game? Opened up his outside backs numerous times and put them in holes to score. But I suppose he's black so that's why you hate him??

Racism is a very real scourge on this planet across the board.

Throwing it around because a player you love doesn’t get universal praise cheapens the very real issue of it.

I'm sick of seeing keyboard warriors like you attack him for no reason. He's a class player having a great season and people like you just keep posting rubbish about him. We all know why
I shouldn't really bother responding to you, but my comments were directly after he had made his second key error, dropping an easy catch. What do you mean people like me? Fans of the sport who make an observation? What are you trying to imply? Your accusations that I'm a racist and hate him because he is black say more about you than they do about me. Nothing of my comments warrants you putting that accusation on me.

His second key error? In one match? Gee what a terrible player he is. He's probably the most overhyped player of all time. Cos he made a second key error.. just listen to yourself

Sure, got no issue with you having a differing opinion on a player observation. Since his peak at the Roosters I dont feel the hype has justified the performance, and I dont think he's a great full back, I reckon he was playing better at the Roosters in different positions.

Can I offer you some advice? Labelling someone a racist with no basis does more harm than good, and for such an important cause you make it less significant by throwing that accusation around.

That is just a disgusting comment from absolutely nothing from the other poster.
I love how Latrell stands up for himself and his community, but don’t see him as a champion. He’s just a good ordinary player who is probably being paid overs.

Hadn't even seen the initial post. Complete stupidity. I reckon he's a bit of a thug myself who gets away with a lot of cheap shots.

I think if you'd only seen hi this season (and I don't know whether you have, AFL), you could be forgiven for thinking he was overrated. He is a very talented player who can do remarkable things, but hasn't settled into the team, is still making too many errors, and his temperament, too put it kindly, can be suspect.

It was a small wager but I actually had the Warriors at 5.60.
Good pick, especially with their outs. I greedily put the Wests as a leg into a multi to boost my odds for the Brisbane Lions

You underestimated Brisbane’s ability to go full Seibold!

Just more livid I had a multi Warriors/Brisbane -14.5/Sharks 13+!
There was a 10-15 minute period where Staggs went beast mode and was owning everything both sides of the ball, I switched channels after his try thinking the game was done. Flicked back 20mins later and couldn't believe the score. Its not that the margin was ungettable, but the Broncos looked all over them in play there weren't any signs they were vulnerable.

They fumbled a drop out and it all went pear shaped from there. They flat out should have won though no excuses

The Roosters are such a trusted team right now, even when it was close, I thought it was never in doubt they'd just kick away when needed to win this match. Unlike with some other teams, I never thought Titans were any real chance to pinch this. Its amazing how good they are at just doing enough.
