But who's saying he's carrying on like a pork chop? As far as I can see the kid comes on when he's selected and plays the best he can. Frankly, I feel sorry for him, given he has to deal with Hook's general lack of judgment.
Such an overreaction to his poor attempt at a catch during that pissing rain game. It would have been virtually impossible to see the damn ball, let alone catch it. I thought both the Captain's and the Coach's reactions were bloody ridiculous. After all, poor old Hunty's famous for one of the worst attempts at a catch in history! I don't blame him and nor do I blame Sloan. I saw Reece Walsh miss about 10 high balls a couple of weeks later in ideal playing conditions and nobody said he was hopeless and should be dropped - quite the opposite.
Sloan has great talent. I hope our resident egomaniacal geniuses don't damage him beyond repair.
Great post. The thing is this younger generation live and breathe off what's posted on social media so no doubt Sloan's seen this (or someone has brought it to his attention) post. Thank feck social media wasn't around to have nobodies constantly comment on things I did when I was a stupid dumb teenager (and looking back I clearly was). I'd be even more fecked up than I am now at 65. I'm a great fan of our young guns and I hope they have the right people in their ears guiding them in their football careers.
