Don’t skin the messenger, he’s not one for details!

I’ve got a few @blue bags stories from back in the day to share.

His favourite pick up line “ Hey there, why don’t you buy me a drink?”

Has never failed.

Climbing the light towers at Leichardt oval, making giant shadow puppets at half time.

He’s done it all.
Was that how he picked you up silverdale

In fact he said it was rusty vs the board room he said the cracks will start to appear soon apparently rusty blew the board room up big time and so he should. we are coming last Doyen go rusty go you good thing we would not be here unless for rusty and Holmes a court's take over bid thus Holmes a court had resigned once jamie packer/cannon Brooke's came on board respectively..

Not sure Bennett would want Sam---Demetriou was Wayne's offsider[& very good friend] for a good number of years;including at Sths---Wayne recommended him strongly for Sths head coach & groomed him for the posse---I can't see him being too happy at all about today's developments & the fact that Sam walked out on his anointed one last season in dubious circumstances. I also think Rusty had a problem with Sam too at the time when he walked . TBH,I'm not a fan of Sam BURGESS !!
Are you thick or what?
Sam didn't "walk out", he was pushed out.
By Demetriou, and others in the offices.
But keep up with the warping of facts to fit your narrative.

Whilst Demetriou’s sacking is no surprise it’s not going to solve the problem universally at the club, the player’s themselves are also to blame. Either the they haven’t been trying for the manager or simply have CBA syndrome. In which case a clear-out is required.

Some of the games have been truly awful, I’ve seen a higher standard of play at my local non-league club on a Saturday afternoon than what I’ve seen at a so called professional club.

Like other people have mentioned before, there needs to be a change throughout the whole club. As a long distance Pom fan, I appreciate I may not be seeing the full picture, but maybe it’s time for a factory reset of the Club.

I agree.

Thanks for your contribution here from the old dart.

We are blessed to share the game internationally with the UK.

A special bond.

It’s a “significant club” in the league landscape.

Its lores are not well known to new blood. Older South’s fans know it.

Along with glory, the darkest depths were visited, even death.

Souths fans know what it’s like to visit the other side.

The betrayal of all other clubs in its hour of need, except a passing of responsibility by one, is not easily forgotten.

I’ve never heard a South’s fan condemn Newtown or Norths.

A dark moment releasing Mario Fenech. A self inflicted wound that can never be healed.

And your 2014 premiership stands as one of the greatest comebacks in the sporting history of the world.

This is a part of the folklore of South’s.

Along with countless other memories.

TSP i remember the bulldogs were the only team that did not sign against us to get back into the game in the future every other club signed against us to keep us out forever shame on those clubs. the bulldogs set up a fund raising event at their club with 9 tables that special evening which coincided with the 1908 bell by the late Albert clift whom was a wonderful souths man and gentleman Albert donated the bell which rusty won by outbidding everyone that evening.
