    Even if he did have a dummy spit (I don’t think he did) what does it matter?

    The club told him he won’t be in the top17 this season and he was free to look at other clubs.

    Now it looks like he’s leaving.

    Who really gives a shit how he’s reacted to the shit situation??

    "True fans" aka biased wankers. Same sort who instantly bag players as soon as they sign elsewhere

    Doubled down? I was under the impression the SMH article was the only story quoting him?
    Are there others?

    As far as I am concerned there is nothing in that story he said that offends me. He is a little naive, but he is entitled to feel annoyed. No one likes getting the tap on the shoulder.
    People calling him a sook and saying he is throwing his toys out of the cot is way over the top and disappointing for a player that has been one of the most passionate players to represent this club.

    Fair enough. So it was published about 2 weeks later. Kind of shoots the theory he ran to the papers a bit. I know that's not your catch cry.

    I'm happy to admit he could have handled things a bit better, but lets face it, he has been employed to run flat out at blokes for the last 10 years or so. I can forgive him for a few not so well thought out comments. He will be playing footy somewhere next year, NASA won't be calling. I just believe he has done enough for the club to be excused a few comments.

    Then why are you airing your dirty laundry about Mansour on a public forum? Hypocrite.

    I went back and re checked Weider's articles since the original story was printed......Yeah your right it probably was only one interview, but was added to when picked up by other news outlets.

    Weidler himself added to the piece the following week about the club's reaction. Myself and Jane are also probably the few who will admit when they have made a mistake....Maybe it's a bloke thing......who knows..:p

    To Smug Panther (and any others) on numerous occassions I have explained my mindset about players who play for the Panthers.....If you can't deal with it then possibly you need to put him on ignore.....and then do a Mr Wilson when it suits......:p

    Oh dear.......This isn't my dirty laundry.....it's Mansours and his 'issue' with the club......


    So you've come out for a kicking too. WELL DONE YOU.

    Murray has a hard-on for Latimore. I reckon it is him.

    I was wrong once. I made a statement & then retracted because I thought it was wrong. As it turns it out, it wasn't.

    It's how the media work. They rely on the drama clicks for revenue and fans often fall into it face first. I've done my fair share.
