Thread: McVeigh retirement

  1. #25
    The one aspect about mcveigh's game that i didnt like was his criticism of fellow players if they didnt pass the ball to him or stuffed it up. He didnt handle his teammates comments either. Otherwise a fine player born and bred locally for all the years he played. Now it will be interesting to see whose place he takes on the coaching panel??

    His criticism of other players probably a form of tough love, not fashionable these days unfortunately. No one is perfect but I'm sure he was just as hard on himself. Not sure how you can conclude that he didn't handle criticism from other players well. Pretty sure Kirk, Crouch etc got into him in the early days.

    It was pretty emotional watching the press conference and seeing big Horse get a bit teary eyed! Did anyone else notice the icy looks that Macca threw the way of I think his wife when that mobile phone rang a couple of times ? Boy he Wasn’t happy about it!

    So many rush to be "the victim".
    McVeigh has had a long career no doubt, but it hasn't always been 'great'. Mchack and Mcpointy were nicknames earnt, not given and that sort of history cannot be written over.
    However, there is a time and place to reflect on the negative, and that is not in a retirement thread.
