    Got your attention ?

    www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-09/ex-league-star-craig-field-found-guilty-of-manslaughter/5955040?section=sport

    Says he threw the punch cause he was about to be punched. Seem to recall something similar on the field with Skivvy at Brooky a couple of years ago. Care to refresh my memory . . . .:huh:

    Link fixed.

    Dodgy article, it says he is not guilty and guilty in one sentence. Bad editing. Prefer to think of him as ex souths/tigers

    He should have already received a life sentence for impersonating a footballer.

    Ranks with Kimmorley, Adam Brown, Brett Fulton and Jye Mullane as worst Manly/northern beagles half backs of all time.

    Had 3 really good games for us and they were all against the roosters, especially the preliminary final in 97 which was a great game.

    Kimmorley was bought from Melbourne and Melbourne bought a then little known half-back who just broke into first grade named Orford. Who coincidently was playing for the Northern Eagles.

    In this day and age why is it still called manslaughter? Why can't they just call it laughter regardless of whether it's a man's or a woman's? Not sure what he was laughing at though, a guy died.

    If you can remember back further than this incident, we were playing the Knights once when the red mist came down on big Ben Cross. He started belting our forwards one after the other and a war of words broke out between he and Watmough after Cross had just crumpled another one of our players midfield.

    While there was a brief stop in play, to give our bloke time to recover (I can't remember who it was) Cross was standing at marker and exchanging angry words with Choc who was back with our boys.

    Matai had had enough of the crap and decided to put an end to it himself if our forwards couldn't. While the break was still happening, Matai came strolling in from out in his centre position. Cross was bent over, hands on knees catching his breath and still growling at Choc. As Matai got closer, Cross kept glancing at him and when he got within reach, Cross quickly stood upright and shoved Matai hard in the chest with both hands, pushing Matai backwards a couple of steps.

    Matai, being Matai, reacted without hesitation. He came forward at Cross, leapt about a foot in the air and smashed him up the side of the head. After all the push and shove died down, the ref awarded us the penalty. LOL!

    You have to love the Matai!!
