Do the Sharks play in the AFL?
I think he's a fumbleball ambassador which means he gets rewarded (probably in grog in his case) for biging up the Anglo-Irish game and demeaning other sports.
Not surprised to hear that. Given his age he's probably a Swans fan.
He apparently wants to be a Perth fan now, wanting immediate expansion.
I'm sure you'll invite him home for a Hull pattie after the car races.
He whines a lot, likes decibel meters and crowd counting,thus you'll have plenty in common.
Phil just likes seeing more man skin so the singlets in afl do it more for him
Beetroot Head Slothfield giving it to Creeping Jesus Bennett.... If I was Benny, I wouldn't want to meet with him either....
Wow how embarrassing for him. I bet buzz doesn't realise he comes off a million times worse than Wayne with his sooky, self entitled ramblings. And then he's deluded enough to publish them.
Lesson for everyone here from Phil.
Don't text when pissed.
I can see it now this poor victimised journo:
Phil has shown me ,he'd be the first kid to pick up his cricket bat and run home to his mum at 16 years of age crying, because he was bowled out by a vision impaired kid 6 years younger.
Chucked a wetty because Santa Claus refused to let Phil sit on his lap,because he had dribble and stain marks down the front of his shirt.He was 14 ATT.
Went to his first rock concert at 15 and was refused entry, on the grounds he looked and acted drunk.Plus the bouncer stated ,he'd never seen anyone look so dishevelled.
I know how to get players/coaches to give me more access, publicly hang shit on them for not giving me access after I have bagged them for years.
You beat me to it on this. Would love to see a screen shot of the texting. Probably covered in Rothfields gob slob.
"the same 42,000 rusted on fans"... that's quite an argument!
Players can handle criticism if it's constructive and backed up. They'll even still talk with you after publishing such stuff.
But if you just sling shit for the sake of it, then of course they'll tell you to f**k off.
One day, maybe, Philthy will learn this.
I recently wrote a piece where I stated his tag of being "League's most fearsome critic" was laughable.
I bet he gave himself that title.
He has a point though.
There is definitely a lot of rugby league types who don't do anything to promote the game.
Press conferences and media time like the NBA and NFL do would be great and make a difference
Perhaps if news didn't write such bullshit all the time, players and coaches might be more open.
When you publish unsubstantiated bullshit people want f**k all to do with you?
Colour me surprised!
This is one of the most baffling aspects of NRL clubs. It seems part of the culture that coaches are gruff with the media. How hard is it to get that every bit of promotion counts? If the media are interested give them 25 minutes not 2. Drown them in information. Make it interesting.
In my opinion if this is the logic of the coaches then they need to grow up and stop playing the victim. If they give more the NRL media won't need to go digging for crap.
I don't think Rothfield believed in Santa Claus. Not with a name like Rothfield anyway.
This man continues to produce the most cringeworthy journalism on the planet. Well done Rothfield.
Sloth believes in anyone ,with an extremely red wine flushed face with a big gut.
He has a photo of Sir Les Patterson on his study wall.
He has no point.
He can't sit there and spend decades deathriding Rugby League and then get all pissy when someone doesn't promote the game (in his opinion)
Never understood how its professional for journos to text coaches and ceo's after hours and on weekends etc.. and expect a response..
Imagine trying to get hold of an "actual" business CEO by text,, good luck
