    This guy has been an attacking talent but is an absolute grub to boot. However, as a defensive player he is very ordinary.

    I cannot understand though why the 9 commentators talk him up defensively. He was reported for another one of those cowardly kicks at a player and missed a couple of players badly. Brett Stewart in form is a much safer and better option.

    He & Bellamy should marry. The both are the same type of person. Win at all costs with scant regard for the rules of the game or the spirit with which the sport should be played.

    He always has a few errors in his game, they tend to get brushed over by the commentators lovefest for him though. One thing is indisputable, he is the biggest grub in the NRL. Hope he cops a couple of weeks for those cheap shot kicks.

    Everybody makes mistakes, and even great players muck up at critical moments, but only very rarely. Slater is a very good player, even great in attack, but when the pressure is really on the errors come. Lost Australia a world cup, could have lost the storm the gf last year with a bad miss on catching a bomb, and then dropping a ball, but for a poor ref decision.

    Shoulders' crunching his ribs was music to my ears....

    I dislike Slater with a passion but he is a great player, he does have his weaknesses but I would happily having him playing fullback for us if we lost Brett.

    Garts my thoughts exactly.

    Hate him, not as much as Gidley, but I hate him however I also think he is an outstanding fullback and player.

    How can Manly fans complain about grubs, when we have had players like Hoppa and Boyd in our ranks?

    Come on now Dan. Hoppa was just misunderstood  8) and Boyd was long long ago.

    Slater is a major grub and cant compare to anyone we could name of our current squad, who are all just peachy innocent darlings.

    Apart from all the other catty things quinn does, i have a certain burnt in memory, of him giving the cheapest shot of elbowing Steve Bell in the 08 GF when Bell couldnt see it coming & couldnt respond.

    Father = craig bellamy
    No 1 son in crime = slater
    No 2 black sheep son = quinn

    Anyone else got more in this family or the family tree ?

    that cheap shot on Bell stands out for me too, he is a cheap shot merchant.

    I have to be honest though, i dont mind a bit of old school footy

    I am with Dan, the game has to have its villians.  I will dislike players for it but we need to have them in the game.  It would be boring if  every player was like Menzies!!!!  That is obviously not a dig at him, he is my all time favourite.

    Slater has been done for kicking Skandalis in the head, dropping elbows onto a player already tackled, running 20m to throw a few punches into a Dragons winger being held by 2 forwards, Sliding into other players with the studs up, just an absolutely filthy little bastard

    Was hilarious watching him run away after Skandalis got up ready to give it to him

    Even with all of that, he is still a media darling who to them is just brilliant and can do no wrong.

    With all that form the bloke will still avoid suspension if he pleads guilty to the dengerous contact charge (with feet) from the weekend. How does that work!!? ??? ???
