Just finished watching Roosters and Dragons....noticed against that the rub of the green went Roosters way, especially early where the possession dominance came to the fore again.
All that said these commentators are so preconceived with the status of a player and his hype......Latrell Mitchell's try ...Yvonne has a mini over how good he is and shows again his first blistering first try, for christs sake it was a richochet off someones legs and he fell on it. Tedesco, they go up before he actually starts running, just catching it is a eighth wonder. Cooper he is managing everything beautifully. Boyd Cordner is looking very dangerous all game and the commentar reels off his stats 56metres run (choke) but he has made 27 tackles!
Now back to the heading and to all those Moses lovers (love to hate) and the "horrendous" mistakes he made against Raiders..... i read that somewhere today on this site and asked , shite what did he do that was horrendous(no answer) but never let the facts spoil a story if you want to make a point.
Today Cronk kicked out on the full....death sentence for Moses....no comment for Cronk, play on.
Cronk kicks the ball too long 25m tap.......how many times can we kill this bloke....again no comment....
Cronk misses a tackle, well he is a half? Cronk over rules both on field captains and argues with the ref....Moses would be crucified.
Whats the point of me saying this.....its all about the preconceived ideas that people have planted into their head by perceptions created. Moses defence was actually very good in the horror year last year, this year people are now noting how good his defence is. They didn't notice last year, they were too busy rubbishing him and Norman.
My plea is please try and make up your own mind when you judge a player.....we had two of our best young up and comers tried, judged and hung by a couple of our supporters from monday's game.
Guths first game of course was the classic.....
