I was thinking about the players we are looking at cutting and thinking how they would go as a group with a different coach. This isn’t a sack ba post we already have enough of those but whether…Continue
Like many of you I am really struggling this year. After such a promising start it has well and truly turned into a disaster of a year which is why I am going to share my experience tonight. I'm not…Continue
My mate and I had a good chat on the weekend going over who we have gained and who we got rid off and how it is really starting to look like a much better side and he said surely we will make the 8.…Continue
"Strange move by the warriors if true getting rid of Johnson for an unproven youngster but similar to the knights with ponga, I’m sure the cows didn’t want to lose ponga but you can’t pay an unproven youngster 330k not having played…"
"So let me get this right, she met him on Facebook and has been trying to meet up with him, invited a celebrity to her house whilst her mother was home, he turns up drunk and her and her mother see no problem and with consent f***** she him and he…"
"Lost in the final to the barbarians, beat the broncos in first game then lost 21-0 to eventual winners bulldogs but somehow qualified for final. We did ok in final Denis Moran still has it even though he has chunked up. You can check it out on nrl…"
"Well Jim at the end of last season I cancelled my sports channels on Foxtel with the intention of enabling sports once the eels were back in action. Well after 6 weeks of the eels not turning up and the season basically over I never enabled the…"
"Wow are you actually serious rowdy? Real mature of you mate. All I’m saying is that the eels should not be trusting the Wanderers, other nrl clubs and for that matter the nrl. You differ then fine you don’t have to be a rude prick about…"
"Funny how the news didn’t even mention the Wanderers they just focussed on the eels. I agree with most on here but my only concern is the the operators don’t strike up a deal with say the tigers, dogs and Souths and leave the eels high…"
"Yep it pains me to say it but sometimes it is better the devil you know. I was excited for change and to then make that run and make the grand final it all seemed so right, god how things have turned. 3 spoons, salary cap issues, ceo after ceo,…"
"Well if we are 0-6 like we were this year he better be sacked, other than that it will be a week to week thing but with the media pressure any string of losses of more than 3 during the season will probably lead to termination.
As for contract…"
"It is an even comp in the sense that on any day any team can beat any team. There was the stat last week about how many grand finals the roosters and storm have been in recent times, I think another telling stat is that the eels and knights…"
"Lol you make it sound like he has been working at woolies on the checkout or packing shelves!
I can’t say I am filled with any confidence at all, apart from behind an ex player doesn’t seem to have the right experience and amount of…"
"Yep that’s right chief sponsorship packages have gone up for next year so you would assume actron are paying even more and if so this is good news. I don’t understand how ‘supporters’ can put a negative spin on their club…"
"Some good names there, Phil Blake scared the shyte out of me when we played against him his chip and chase, he was incredible. Junior Pearce, Et was also great and underrated cause of his pretty boy looks. More recently Taumololo, Shaun Johnson and…"
"I am very critical of ba but that’s ridiculous chief, ba thought we would just continue the form we showed last year with Jarryd simply replacing semi which he was obviously capable if his body was right and Evans would give us some punch up…"
"There was talk about Flanagan last year but then all went quiet after we made the 8 and top 4. Haven’t heard anything since but interesting, it’s not like parramatta to think ahead, maybe we are finally getting our shit together."
"Interesting bup I was saying the same about how many fullbacks and halves combos we had this year to a couple of mates last night. Understandably ba was trying to spark them but we really should have had that right in the pre season. I think Gutho…"
2009 ride to Grand Final
2001 Season, another great ride
1980's but memories starting to fade
Do/have you play footy (If so for who, when, position, etc)?
Unfortunately no, played for school and then played touch and tag.
What changes would you make if you were Eels coach
Select as many players as I can that have excellent anticipation like hindmarsh. It's no coincidence he keeps turning up even if the body is struggling.
What changes would you make if you were Eels CEO?
Back my coach, make it clear to the players that he is the boss and then let him run the show.
Get my fans more involved with their heroes and make their membership the most rewarding in the competition.
Favourite music/movies/tv shows:
Love my movies in particular action movies.
Like different types of music but keep going back to the old 80's hits.
3 Random Facts About Me
Born in 1970 and have supported the Eels my whole life, through good and bad.
Offered to teach tai chi to Eels training program back in the early 2000's, Smithy said he would consider but i think this was a nice way of saying no...
Love my cars, Audi, HSV, Chevy.
