    Not sure about this 'anointing' process. Why not just give the lad the thumbs up, or a vote of confidence or something? Does it have religious connotations? Maybe it means he is blessed!

    "Kieran Foran and his brother Liam are also options should Cherry-Evans not stand up to the task"

    Wait what?

    When did Liam become an option?

    Read the quotes and Killer never said anointed... its just journalistic liscene. The writer has just exaggerated the circumstances to provoke some interest. Don't take it too seriously, they hardly had a ceremony under the full moon where he rubber ash on his forhead and they prayed to Gus' Football Gods for favour. Just a journo doing something other than writing the usual cliches

    Ben, it was still probably better than the religious rites performed at Brookie before the elections, where Kitie wore the sacred Manly budgie-smugglers and pledged allegiance at the feet of the great Northern god Abbott asking for large financial blessings prior to the upcoming season. That one didn't work out too well but no doubt Lowie has been dressing in Egor's suit and making prayers at the alter of the Sponsorship gods seeking favours for the front of the jerseys.
