    Aitkin is going to sum this club up in years 2017-2020. Bad enough being picked by the abysmal coaches when he continually made defensive errors but is another thing when it is known he is leaving and we cant make the 8 yet he keeps his position ahead of 2 incumbent juniors who would relish the experience.
    Young can't go quick enough for me.

    He is probably thinking Max can come on in the centres and Aitken can move to the middle as part of the forwards rotation.Don't really get it, it is not what i would have done personally, but at least Max gets his first grade debut.
    This kid,and his brother are our future and whatever he does on Sunday he can only improve on.I am a massive wrap for him and his brother and i admit I have been guilty of being swept up in the hype with some of our juniors in the past ,who couldn't handle the step up, but i would genuinely be surprised if these two don't make it. He deserves his shot and i hope he handles it well.
    Good luck son,i hope it's the start of a long career wearing the red and white...

    No he certainly has not.

    He is merely showing how belligerent he is and that 1 win using his selection policy is more than enough justification despite the ever increasing number of losses.

    His press conference reeks of arrogance which is a shame because I really hoped it would have been different.

    He’s obviously on a promise to a departing McGregor not to drop Lovechild

    As I’ve said countless times over many years ....
    Aitken’s been the symbol of our demise,
    inducing credibility deficit disorder in McFail & now Clone

    ... costing the Club several finals opportunities, and the 2 Fools their jobs

    ... one day over a beer they’ll manage to join the dots

    I am totally confused.

    With Aitken and Frizz moving on I would have thought he would piss EA off blood some kids and may be put Frizz on the bench and give a kid a start and see how they handle themselves

    That’s just what I think. Not sure if I am cooked or feeling ill with these thoughts but DY needs to understand it’s about the club not self interest which sadly as I may say it is looking more like

    It’s been a great Cleanout year actually - and I’m stoked:

    Waterboy ignominiously sacked
    Deano gone
    Webby turning the screws
    Laitkens gone
    Griffin signed
    Cody’s gem debut
    Max’s debut
    Win-cum-Illawarra Board Goons
    totally discredited

    All I could’ve wished for

    It’ll be an unexpected very Happy Xmas at our joint
    ... & 94 yr old mum’s still beside herself with McR.I.P’s trashing

    And wasn’t Cody’s mum the shot of the year!

    That would be a huge improvement!

    Max to get 2 mins at the end is more likely.

    Tru dat.

    Just couple of months back we couldn't have dreamt of the clean out that would ensue.

    It was looking certain that we would be stuck with Mc7yearbaddream at least until seasons end, and probably until the end of his utterly bewildering contract extension, with little chance of a potential new coach until 2022.

    Enter Webby, whom I liken to Buster Gonad, due to his infeasibly large testicles.

    He firstly oversees Lafai's return to the doghouse, nice, then the Turnstile not in the clubs future plans move, hallelujah, then sanity prevails with the miraculous punting of McFail.

    Then he landed an experienced, proper coach in Griffin.

    Anyhow, the future indeed looks bright and perhaps LINESPEED, your mum may get to see our Dragons breathe the fire again in her lifetime...

    I would have liked to see both Feagai's selected giving Aitken and Pereira a day off on full pay.

    Max has to survive the '24hr warning' and the "late mail' yet. I hope he does and manages to play some decent minutes.
