    Jack Wighton recently posted up this(only to take it down) :

    One week they love you.
    Next week they hate you.
    Both weeks I got paid.

    Imagine a Manly player with this attitude after being lapped by 30+ points.

    Dang! That says a lot about his character.
    I wonder if he applies that attitude to other work, relationships, etc?
    Poor form.

    He is a good young player. Maybe if Stuart (somehow) survives at Canberra for a while a few Raiders players might start looking to develop their careers at better places...

    I have no doubt that he is talented player, but he's quickly going down the path of Fergo

    Ricky doesn't use Powerpoint - he is old school, nothing but overhead projectors for Sticky.

    If I was to indulge in some generation stereotyping I'd be tempted to say that Wighton's comments smack of Gen Y selfishness. However I'm not that shallow, I suspect he has just been misquoted. Should have said, one week I got paid next week I didn't deserve to be paid.

    What do you mean, I think Ricky posted something similar

    One year they hate me.
    The next year they still hate me.
    Both years I got paid.

    There's nothing quite like a good flogging.

    I know, that was the running joke at the time. Ricky wasn't even smart enough to use multimedia, he used an overhead projector. See these articles below.

    Maybe that was their problem yesterday, the Raiders defensive pattern overhead slide was swapped with the Royal Easter show turnstile flow pattern slide. Get with the times Ricky.

    After the Tigers gave us a deadset pantsing earlier in the year, if any of our players (please tell me none did) posted such a comment I would be absolutely livid, and I can't imagine that person being able to go within throwing distance of Geoff Toovey. I think Wighton has potential, but he'd better get that attitude out of him if he ever wants to become more than just a first grader.

    I read Roy Keane's (of Man United fame) book a few years back and he described Monday training sessions after a loss. (this was when he first joined in the mid 90s with players like Paul Ince, Bryan Robson, Peter Schmeical) He said they basically tore into each other from the first kick and were that p@@@ed about losing that they barely spoke to each other all week until they set it right.

    I cannot imagine Killer, Gift, Snake, Choc, Kingy, Skivvy....etc etc going into training after a loss and just having the attitude of 'oh well I got paid what do I care?'. The reason they have been the pinnacle of Rugby League for 10 years is because they are winners with the right attitude. A loss means a personal affront from the team that beat us, that's why they hate the Storm so vehemently. This is the only team of the last 10 years that has challenged us consistently....and they couldn't do it legally.

    He should have just posted "I have no self respect", it would be taken less time.
