    That is not the case. He is not a dickhead, and his post history certainly proves that.
    You and him just haven't seen eye to eye on certain comments, and that is fine as well.
    We all disagree at times.
    It's just not worth getting upset about.
    If you think Bart, or Phantom (or whatever other name he chose to hide behind) chasing me around a forum for years and also stalking another members wife on facebook is comparable, than that is laughable.
    I somewhat agree with your views re our soft underbelly when we play in Canberra. History proves that we have a terrible record there. I'd certainly love for us to show some muscle and beat the Viking Clappers this weekend. I'm not expecting us to do that and it won't be the end of the world or season if we don't.
    I'd just like to see us for once, be competitive in the nation's capital. A close loss would not be acceptable, but would show some fight. A big loss would be asking questions.
    A win, gets us back on track.
    Let's just see how it pan's out, shall we?

    No-one realistically thinks that. I know full well that BA isn’t perfect.

    Some of us are just being a bit more realistic about performances and recognise (through lived experience) that replacing a coach isn’t always the answer. Particularly if you don’t have a better option.

    I always regret extra chilli afterwards but still go for it anyway.

    But then again I expect Parra to win the comp every year as well.

    If we’re mentally weak because we haven’t won in Canberra since 2006 then none of the squad or coaches are at fault. It’s mentally piss weak fans projecting that rhetoric on to the club. You want to know why I get butthurt? It’s f**ken shit like that. Plus mental weakness is more a trait of the one slinging petty insults.
    I can’t f**ken wait until the “I told you so” after we lose on Saturday or making excuses for Canberra if we win.

    No no I’m definitely a dickhead but that’s a separate issue.

    Anyway I’d like the team to win this weekend because that’s better than losing. I’m off to bed now. I’ve worked 13 days straight of 13 hour shifts

    I'll take that on board and use it as evidence in future posts. Thanks for the tip.

    I am a great judge. I fail to see who will explode in our side and make us any better.

    I never mentioned coaching or BA failing. I mentioned it’s a big test for BA to get us up for the win. Was that such an outrageous statement?

    He’s carried on, on a lot of other occasions and I simply don’t respond. But I guess it’s a lot easier from the comfort of being behind a keyboard

    I had to use a tube of ANUSOL during Easter stint. I was working 12hr days. 12days straight. A bit too much chilli and a sweaty anus along with ladder climbs just was not pleasant. The anus chaffed. Lucky I had a tube of anusol at home just incase.

    We are saving the lethal combo of Oldfield and Waqa as our centres leading into the GF

    You heard it here first.

    Never will we win a comp while he is coach. Id put 10000s on that. His best is what we have seen. But I feel like making the finals is good for young players so when we flick him the next coaches hard work has been done.

    I’ve never once came back and said “I told you so”. Don’t make shit up. Mate, we are beat before a whistle is blown. Whether it’s a mental thing or not, you carried on like a twat. You could of reasoned why you think it’s not a piss weak mentality, but you resorted to being a dickhead

    I didn't think it was an outrageous comment, but I personally didn't agree with this.
    It implies that if we lose we'll just be making up the numbers for the rest of the season. I don't subsribe to the view that this one game is that important. I wouldn't write us off if we happened to lose.

    Having said that, I do agree that it will be a big test. I wish I was still living down there. Would have loved to go.
