    That was oddly specific. Ross might have accidentally let slip his holiday plans.

    Do as I say, not as I do.

    "Anyone who thinks they can go and have 10 weeks off and sit in a cabana and drink Sailor Jerry and dry all day and eat hamburgers, that's not the way it works. ... But if they carry themselves like Matthew Pavlich has for the last 17 years we'll be in good shape." —Ross Lyon

    This was an instant classic. A cracker. A ripper. Hilarious! Pure gold.

    The best quote since the "milkshake" one last year. A quote so good it ALMOST made this $#!!+% season tolerable.

    And Like Lach72, I had no idea what "Sailor Jerry" was, so I Googled it.

    Ross's quotes are so damn good because you can get such great visuals. Who in their right $#@&*^$ mind WOULDN'T want to sit in a cabaña (I'm envisioning a Tahitian, overwater one, complete with the sounds of waves crashing underneath, a veranda to sit on and feel the sun's intense heat and humidity on your skin :sunface:, and a glass bottom floor to watch the passing tropical fish :tropicalfish:) for 10 weeks and eating hamburgers :hamburger: (Again, I picture them being served on a circular tray in those silver plate covers to keep the food warm and I can smell the accompanying fries) while drinking the rum I can practically taste and feel the buzz from? :sunglasses: :tonguewink:

    I only wish journalism and teaching paid that much for me to have a 10-week period like that! :thumbsupemoji:

    We all should've been driven to drink it by the litre by three-quarter time in many of the games we played this year...would've taken the edge off the pain. :drunk:

    Talking about how the 2nd bye deprives the top 4 teams of an advantage they've earned...

    Mark McClure: Ross, did you cause this?

    Ross Lyon: Potentially. There's not much I don't cause, Mark.

    I went to a SXSW event that was sponsored by Sailor Jerry and they were giving it out for free. Thought it was beyond disgusting, I paid for my own drinks rather than drink that shit for free.

    What a classic: "Man is made to work".

    I felt so inspired when I heard him say that. Really wished I could stop being such a procrastinating lazy sod.

    Just brilliant! No, that's not your style at all. What happened to your sig quoting "some Greek gadfly"? I used to draw a fair bit of inspiration from that.

    One of those players in question is from the leadership group, how much does that erode the messages coming from there?

    What the **** does that even mean?

    Sometimes I wish this bloke would man up and tell the media he hates them, or actually speak in proper English and not in buzz phrases. The supporters deserve some sort of transparency about what he thinks and what's going on. These cliches get trotted out because they're so vague, in the future, they can't be tracked back to him and hurled back at him.
