    Classy guy. Compare that to how Dugan handled himself during negotiations in leaving the club. I know who I'd rather in my team.

    Hit the nail on the head.
    McGregor is a spin doctor and when I read how impressed Graham was - I am at a loss.
    "McGregor's Team"....please!

    Don't park in the loading zones & please bring your jersey to game day laundered properly.

    Oh....and avoid contact with fans at all times unless accompanied by either the coach or chief executive.

    Great to have him on board but, f*ck me, that article was a cringeworthy puff piece of the highest order.
    Get ready to projectile vomit when we get Hunts introductory interview.

    I don't expect JG to be our best player but FMD if this guy doesn't improve our culture and commitment I'll eat my hat, as the saying goes.

    Quite right, he is classy and making Duges look like an utter twat.

    Perhaps we will see the improved brains trust influence our game and bench strategies; seriously hope the farque it does because I don't sense a new coach being considered.

    Graham could be thinking his next move and thought "This Mary guy is not gonna last, possible coaching gig coming up in 2 years".

    As you say he is a spin doctor.
    But you wouldn't expect Graham to say anything else.
    He not going to bag the place

    Yeah but more importantly he didn't bag his former club, and in fact praised the playing group and his former team mates.

    I think Graham is a class act and highly intelligent.
    I am sure he would be prepared to support the coach as he did with Hasler even when things weren't going well.
    I think that it's more about McGregor hoping Graham changes the dynamics of the place.

    And Graham played like his life depended on it right up until his last game.

    Was one of the reasons his team knocked us out.

    I am looking forward to Graham joining us. He is a class act. Imagine him and Thommo screaming at you in defense. Between the 2 of them surely people will listen. Have them as the 'defense commanders' Thommo one side, Graham the other.

    I am sure he won't be backward with friendly chats to the referee

    All I can say is thank f**k we picked up this absolute champion.
    Watching him closely tonight is only solidifying how big and important his signing really is. If he's not taking a valuable hit-up, he's looking for a cheeky pass around the ruck, or making a desperate tackle in cover defence, or sparking his forwards with some motivational words. He is ALL about those 1 percenters, best forward on the field tonight. So pumped to have him join our squad next year!
