    It means the messages coming from the leadership group aren't undermined (eroded) by one mistake (wave).

    Yes he should get you as his spokesperson. I'm sure your deep and insightful analysis would help the club enormously.

    There was a whole thread on the main board where you manned up and told the world what you thought of Fremantle - that went well.

    Man I wish you would just come out and say who you really support because it sure isn't Fremantle!

    He didn't want an actual answer _007_, he just wanted another excuse to take a pot at Ross, who he hates with a passion.

    Of course he is, and so is everyone else. Because someone might disagree with him and think he is a compete tosser does not invalidate their opinion.

    If he was banned for giving an opinion or his posts were deleted THEN it would be Dockerland.

    Edit: Beat me to it salim malik!

    Gotta agree with SA a bit here. WTF does "one lap of the wave" mean exactly? It's not a saying I've heard before and it doesn't make a lot of sense. Is the quote accurate? Reminds me of job interviews where applciants sprout all kinds of crap trying to sound smart. Anyway, I'm a Ross fan, so he can say whatever the hell he likes as long as he gets us back into the September action.

    If you listen to the whole interview Nodgey it makes perfect sense. AS I said, people get incensed about a snippet of an interview without hearing it in context.

    It was a great interview, well worth a listed if you have 15 minutes spare. :thumbsu:

    I did skim through the interview yesterday because of a slow internet connection, and won't go back to it now, but he mentioned something about a built up culture not eroding away suddenly, that it gets eroded away over time. (my interpretation being... one wave doesn't erode it away but a series of waves might). Lap as in lapping onto the shore or the coastline. Could seem like a mixed metaphor otherwise - rather than a cliché.

    Yeah that's the key point. It only doesn't make sense if you think the wave is doing laps of the pool or something.

    From freo website:

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

    I don’t think it erodes it. Erosion occurs over a long period of time. Water takes a long period of time to erode away strong structures and soils. It doesn’t happen with one lap of the wave or one incident. We feel our leadership group is quite strong. Obviously you are referring to Michael Johnson and as I said it isn’t pleasing and ideally it didn’t happen but again it is before the courts and there is a fair bit to play out here and work through. But again, it is not pleasing.


    SA , what you expect Ross to said ?
    Johnson should never play again ?

    That makes so much more sense than the quote in isolation.

    Did you notice the glint in RTB's eye when he subtly sledged Wet Toast:
    "There's a strong history, particularly in this state, of people needing support."

    You'd have to make great effort for the statement to be confusing.

    This is why I get so annoyed with muppets like Silent Alarm who come on here, read a small snippet of something and fly off about how Ross needs to "man up". If he had bothered to actually listen to or read the interview he would have seen that Ross did explain exactly what the club is thinking.

    Shallow analysis is shallow analysis and should be called out.
