    Anyway he's not playing.
    Correct, and very well put. You've crystallised the sense of entitlement I find so obnoxious.
    My opinion is objective truth in its purest form

    How about I hope he develops an obsession with some obscure religious cult and spends the rest of his life living in Wyoming performing a raft of strange rituals. I agree with the rest of V&R's commentary however.
    It's very hard to live in a studio apartment in San Jose with a man who's learning to play violin. That's what she told the police when she handed them the empty revolver.

    I thought that at first, but sounded pretty tongue-in-cheek, so let it go.

    Plus I got a bit of a history lesson on James Cook. Apparently they picked him up with #2 pick in 1990. Sydney traded the pick for ruckman Warren McKenzie.

    I don’t remember either of them as I didn’t really jump on the Swans bandwagon until the early 90’s.

    I’m pretty sure James Cook was Tasmanian so must have nominated he would only play for a Victorian club ?

    Remember James Davies in 2000 who said he would only play for Essendon. Drifted through to their first draft pick #17 and only played 3 games. A highly opinionated overrated spud. Their second pick at #27 also did not make the grade at Essendon but did well elsewhere. One Ted Richards!

    From who is not playing the VFL it looks like Clarke and Phillips are the medi-subs.
