    Hi all, great win and seeing heaps of fans there last night!

    On a downer, Lowey was in front of me in the food line up during Toyota cup last night and it was abit surreal. I didn't recognise him (he was directly in front) but heard this familiar voice and when he turned it was Graham. Awful news to write but he looked terrible :(

    He looked like very tired, on the tele he doesn't look too bad but last night he waited to the side of me while the food was being cooked and I thought how could he be a CEO of an organisation?? Makes you realise your health is the most important thing in the world, to think he is just over 60!!

    If Dan or anyone thinks this should be deleted that is cool. Just wanted our fans to remember that he is doing a top job, maybe under difficult circumstances. :(

    Hate to hear of anyone on the sick list.

    Maybe it was a good sign you seen him, he may be getting over something.

    I wish him well.

    I saw Lowey in Mona Vale last week and he looked fine. He probably just ate at the league club before he went to the game

    Was a big fan of our CEO until I met him.
    Thanked him for doing a great job and tried to thank him for doing an unthanked (but probably highly paid) job.
    Said some quite disparaging comments about Sivertails.net
    He couldn't understand that while he talked MWSE 24/7 some of us tragics couldn't get enough of them, considering we don't live on the Northern Beaches.
    "Water off a duck's back." was his comment repeatedly.

    Mind you, me speaking Braille probably wasn't helping matters.
    Very disappointed, but the rest of the staff were very friendly & charasmatic.

    Why did you think that the club would not know about Silvertails Darren?
    Have you not seen the membership team posting on here?
    The official site used to point people here for a while but doesn't anymore (Don't know why?)

    If he's lining up for a pie at Brookie, he'd HAVE to have both a lot of fortitude, and constitution :).

    Also, good on the bloke for mixing with the masses.

    I’ve seen that for the NSW away games Lowie likes to get there with his kids when possible and he seems to like to have a wander around and speak to people when he can.

    At Brookie we’ve bumped in to him a few times walking around the concourse in front of the Hill pre-game mixing with the crowd and having the craic.

    He always seems to be happy to say G'day to people and is happy to speak when people ask him stuff or make a point - I guess the intimacy and the fact they are willing to chat face to face or front him with things they are not happy about is preferable to someone slagging you off through the anonymity of the internet?

    I don't know Darren, but for a teacher you really don't seem have much tact.

    You could simply say he didn't look well but "Sick old Man" is a little harsh.

    I'm no Lowe fan, especially considering we didn't get a new Major sponsor. But having a crack at a guy who may of looked off at a game of footy is ordinary.

    Glad it was taken with the intention meant?

    We are way overdue you shouting me a sandwich pre-game - I'll be there Saturday maybe a Bistro catch up?

    How is it that some on here assume that Lowe should like silvertails?

    I know if an internet forum existed where day in day out people took it on themselves to express their displeasure at me, my appointment, my characteristics, my job performance, my future prospects, my past and my ability to do anything at all - then perhaps I would not only avoid it, but probably detest it as well.

    Not saying people don't have a right to their opinion or even that they are right or wrong - lets not open that can of worms again, just that facts are facts, this is not a Lowe friendly environment.
