    Haha awesome! Do his boys play Rugby League?
    From memory he played a few games for Parramatta after he left the dragons.
    I just remember him being the great white hope as he was coming through the grades at saints. Bit like Damien Chapman

    They do.
    I remember Kusto scoring a slashing individual try in reserve grade at Kogarah on a lovely, sunny Sunday afternoon. Must have been around 1993 and I remember thinking this bloke will be a star. I remember the wraps on Chapman and before him Cameron Wade.

    Hey OT, I bought my first motocross bike as a teenager from Jim Airey's shop with the money I earned doing a paper run and used to race it at his track out in Sydney's west. Top bloke and they were fun times...

    Great thread LG and interesting... it's funny how diverse the background and ages but we are united in one great tribe.


    Too old too slow.

    The origins of this simple phrase for me goes back to my introduction and love for the Big Red V.. and one of my greatest disappointments in my life.

    In my hometown, playing footy in the front yard of a mates place some 45 odd years ago.. we were joined by one of his 'old' family friends.

    We split into teams and this 'old' guy was on my team. Our team of 7 year old kids and this old guy went pretty well... we had a ball and he made us all look good.

    Funny that .. he spent a lifetime making those outside him look good.

    I said to him after our game (as kids do) your not too bad for an old bloke... his reply .. "too old and too slow" .

    At the time I thought it was hilarious... now I know how he felt.

    I never followed a team at that stage ... but after this brief interlude with the 'Baron of Bruise'... I was a dragon for life.

    And the great disappointment, I never saw the great man play live.. well apart from that one time.

    The avatar .. the man who showed me the way.. the Red V way.

    You do realise that many people have a pathological fear of clowns, especially that one.

    Shock horror, my last name is Johns, so obviously Johnsy.

    My avatar is a drawing by a friend, he's a work colleague that draws as a hobby

    I remember witnessing one of the greatest match ups ever.1970 i think when Cocky Raider put a end to Lucky Creeds 24 straight winning sequence.
    The little Cocky won by half a head.
    Went down in the record books as one of the best finishes of The Australia Day Cup at Harold Park ever.Cocky received a standing ovation at the presentation that seemed to go on forever.Cocky Raider was a little horse of true grit...maybe not as good as the champion HALWES...but he was definitely a crowd favorite & champion in their eyes..

    Nice drawing, but you're looking a bit pale.

    Hi my name is Gregstar & I'm a loserholic.

    It has been 7 years since my last premiership.

    My interests include masturbation, cutting heads off infants and standing behind doors with my dick out.

    Great stories.

    Regarding my user name, I flew down to MEL to catch up with my sister. The problem was that I had a birthday party the night before and it got rather messy.

    Got on board feeling like death and no one was sitting next to me and it was only an hour's flight so all good.

    Just before the plane left the gate, a large basketball player came and sat next to me as the seat he was sitting in was broken.

    On take off, I needed to vomit and couldn't move until the seat belt light went off and thought I was going to vomit on him.

    The light went out just in time and jumped over him like a mad man.
