    Every Friday through the offseason I will announce a THEME!! team of the week which we can have a laugh, cry or whinge about you may chose to ignore it or give us your imput.

    My first team consists of the most overated signings I've ever experianced as a Parra supporter. These player signings were well publicised at the time but unfortunatly turned out to be complete duds.

    Overated signings.

    1 David Riolo
    2 Brett Plowman
    3 Iva Roparti
    4 Andy Patmore
    5 Ken Wolfe
    6 Luke Goodwin
    7 Paul Green
    13 Willie Leyshan
    12 Nathen Gibbs
    11 Daryl Williams
    10 Nate Turner
    9 Jeff Fenech
    8 Dean Sampson

    Didn't we pay a bit for Nathan Barnes who did bugger all?

    I think it's a little unfair that Willie Leyshon is on the list considering he was signed after retiring due to injury.
    Paul Green was unlucky as well - as soon as he started finding form he copped an unlucky injury.

    Anyway these lists should provide some entertainment during the offseason keep 'em coming 8)

    Didn't we once sign an ex-NFL player or was that someone else? I just seem to remember a club signing someone who played in the NFL.

    I'm glad you agree re Dymock. He came as a Clive Churchil medallist with a huge future, and ended up a dud. At least Dykes had injuries to blame, and eventually found form!

    As for the coach - no contest is it!

    Absolutely....Dymock was the most overatted player we have had i reckon...we payed a fortune for him and only got a handfull of good games from him in his last season for us playing hooker.....i can't understand why Parra fans where so in love with this bloke when he did us bugger all for us!!.....Jason Smith & Pay where two legitimate good buys for us!!

    For every one good pass Dymock threw he'd throw a 100 shockers!!!

    Dykes eventually found form!!! Have you gone forward in time or something and come back???? The only form Dykes might have found was checking out Friday's Daily Telegraph Race Guide!!

    No Dykes did find some good form in the last few games of the year...he was close to Parra's best in the final two games,

    Let's hope he stays injury free next year and enjoys a good season as under study to Thorman :lol: :lol: :D

    In my opinion he never delivered - he was ok for a while but could have gone further - too many problems with his weight. He had some good games - but then again so did McFadden, Freeman, Jolly, Galbraith and so on. They just didn't arrive with the same hype.

    Just another thing we disagree on Misty..... probably won't be the last.
