It’s a tragic tale...poor bastard haha
So this thread has turned from who you've seen just now to who you've seen/met in the past?
Made me recount the players/coaches I've encountered in all different kinds of scenarios all time. List of the top of my head - and I'm happy to recount the scenarios on request. Ie I've met them in social situations, not just seen crossing the road or getting an autograph at a game etc. But against the thread topic, none were boring or mundane...
Craig Young (and son Dean, was a baby at the time)
Michael "Weaponhead" Porter
Nathan Brown (along with "Big Kev"....i'm excited....)
Steve Price (the ex Dragons Coach, not Bulldogs Captain)
The standouts for me were Wayne Bennett and (maybe surprisingly) Michael Weaponhead Porter.
With Weaponhead, I was at the King Wan Chinese after a sharks game my neighbours took me to when I was a ten-year-old-kid. He walked in with a few mates when my sharkies fan hosts called out to him. He came up to our table as I was munching on some dim sims or whatever and said gday to us all. I was singled out by my neighbours as "the dragons fan" at the table but he came up to me, shook my hand, and singled me out for some chat for the next few minutes. Yeah I was a starry-eyed ten-year-old kid at the time but it always stuck with me how sincere, courteous and impressive he was. He didnt convert me to following the sharks but he was always my favourite player after that.
(apart from John Fifita of course..... who sadly I've not yet met...)
It always makes me wonder what impressions the current NRL players leave on kids these days.
Real estate signs around Camden with Shannon McDonnell's face on it.
Hopefully he handles housing auctions better than bombs.
Wayne bartrim drinking piss at the workers camp in darwin. Lives a few rooms from me
haha saw his mug on the back of a bus on Narellan Road one day.
That’s the saddest post I’ve ever seen
Saw Luke O’Donnell at my local cafe this morning. He was sporting one hell of a black eye.
Still has the physique of a chiseled Adonis.
I hope its not the last you see of LOD. I fear he is heading to prison at this rate. I hope I am wrong.
Saw Cooper Cronk wandering around Crows Nest...he live in the area?
I also once saw this bloke in rushcutters bay park walking towards me f**king blowing the hell out of his nose, into his hand f**king snot all over him. Seriously f**king disgusting. I was like who's this filthy merkin, get the f**k away from me.
As he walks past I realised it was Freddy Fittler. I said how's it going Freddy ya sick f'ck..he just looked at me seriously and said "morning" ..went back to blowing f**king snot everywhere again hahaha
F'ck it was grose!!!
Yeh fella has issues unfortunately
Blow me down
I seen mark gasnier at the shell servo at brighton buying chips one night after a sharks game. He'd been at the ground working for fox.
Ivan Henjak at Coles last weekend, checking out the ice creams.
You should tell the Courier Mail. They did an article on him a few years ago about how he went to coach some Sunshine Coast team, then disappeared and was never heard of again.
