    I agree. No need for the foul language, even as an acronym.

    Completely different players. In Kearney we trust.

    2 examples of bad play and that makes him a dumb player? Must have had his eyes closed watching Keating then...

    Lol the surname was familiar, turns out written by a old work colleague from my last job. Lovely bloke, big Dogs supporter. He's too nice to be a Dogs supporter though. I hope he gets cured

    Hopefully he's wrong. Then again, he is as qualified to sledge him as we are with Mateo, Inu & Morts. ;-)

    so once keating is unshackled from the dead weight of roberts he will become benji 2? reminds me of all those souths fans who think sutton will turn into a superstar without sandow holding him back :D

    Stopped reading right there.

    Although there's a snippet of truth to his statement isn't there? KK doesn't play like a total and utter moron - he's worse.

    If the guy can only find 2 boneheaded plays from Roberts in 93 first grade games, then I'm satisfied. We could find 2 boneheaded plays from KK while playing touch footy on the end of season trip - and that would be just by watching the first 2 times he touched the ball wouldn't it?

    Funny how the Author doesn't mention how well he played in 09 when injury free with a dominant half.

    so true

    roberts ripped with kimmorley.
    with chrissy it may take them a bit to work out a solid combo but i think they will do a great job

    I've always rated Roberts. I reckon we've got a steal.

    the first rule of writing a biased one sided article is to ignore all the facts that dont go along with your opinion :sarcasm:

    You got Mortz and KK the wrong way around.

    In all honesty I think KK does have game but he is very stupid at the moment but that may change with experience. His kicking game is OK, his long passing game is non-existent but his short passing game and running game is his best asset but unfortunately he is inconstant also he is a good support player.

    I still think Roberts in 10 times the player Mortz is but both will struggle without a halfback, Roberts passing and kicking game is far superior and his running game is probably more effective because he breaks tackles with his strength as well but he isn't as nippy. His supports play isn't anywhere near as good but that what fullbacks are for.

    Is Roberts takes a backseat to Sandow he will probably flourish because he will have guys like Tonga, Hayne and Matuia to play to. I think Robert will be due for a big season with him and sandow being among the best players for out team next year.
