    Thanks - I've added it to my 'must try harder to be subjectively positive this year' mantra.

    It would not be RWO if Nick wasn?t injecting his half glass empty p.o.v. on us.

    The career paths of most footballers have ups and downs ? last year LRT went up and Bevo went down. Long term, the NRC?s will get the best out of themselves whilst the RC?s will not. (the gospel according to Ricky) LRT is no RC, he will get the best out of himself and be a good player for us in years to come, but not I think a really great one because he lacks natural instinct and appears to be one of the blunter instruments in the Swan?s toolshed. Experience will help him to make decisions more quickly, and I also hope that he does some work on his kick penetration, as poor kicking is still a serious flaw in his game.

    Why not? A little blonde haired bloke who got some loose ball in the middle of the paddock and continually kicked it to the opposition was officially awarded that honour.

I reckon however that he is more likely to improve with experience than be hit by a bus. I know you would find it hard to agree with this as it doesn't fit your optimistic view on life.
    Lot of buses in Sydney though.

    What about some positively, negative optimism.

    Well I'll be buttered on both sides, I thought LRT was a Roman Catholic. You learn something new every day.

    That was because he was either

    a) Lost like he was for most of the season, and the Eagles kicking was so bad they kept kicking it directly to him.

    or

    b) his opponent thought he was a waste of space and left him all by himself to get free ball. (Paid him no respect)

    or/and

    c) he has actually learnt how to read the ball/play and managed (somehow) to get his blonde mop in the right place at the right time.

    Whatever the answer he will be better for the experience, and can only improve from that.

    That may or may not be the case. My original comment was that the enough of the 15,000 fans that voted on the Swans website considered LRT to be BOG in the GF. And there was no way he was. He wasn't even BOG for the first half.

    As for the "he will only improve" tag - talk about faint praise. I am sure rastus', Roscoe's and Ruckman's qulaity of posts will only improve with more practice - C'mon guys stay positive, you can do it!
