Myself, BrissyRedV and BennyV clashed repeatedly over the offseason about the merits of moving Dugan from fullback to accommodate Kurt Mann. Now that has been settled and Kurt Mann is in fact as I said he was, a NSW Cup standard player, its time to move on. Of course someone also has to answer for the recruitment of such a player. I have been a solid supporter of Mary but really, he is starting to come across as an idiot. Signing Mann, leaving Aitken out, choosing Widdop as captain even though Dugan wanted it .. patently ridiculous! Of course Lafai wasnt bad against Souffs (which doesnt mean good) but if that was close to his best, he is a NSW Cup standard center, as myself and Objective View have said consistently. Rein was outstanding against Souffs. If he can play 80min and doesnt throw bad passes out of DH or try to kick, there is no reason he cant play like that every week. I still hope Robbie Farah comes back and the Tigers play terribly and they come to the conclusion he must go even if they have to pay a large % of his salary for the next 2 years. Now we come to my pet-peeve. Gareth Widdop! I posted a long message on the most overrated thread but the entire thread was deleted in response. Just more evidence that there is something really weird going on with Gareth Widdop and this forum. Is he using his massively inflated supercoach Price era salary to pay people off to stifle criticism? Anyway, on this thread, just so homies cant whine about saying the same thing on every thread, I want to rate Gareth Widdop.
