    Noticed in this mornings Telegraph (must stop looking in that rag) that Coke-head Coleman and the perennially stupid Mario Fenech are sniffing around the revamped Redfern training facility.  I'm looking forward to the ICAC hearings on that whole 'redevelopment'.  I'd be very wary of having those two hanging around any place where there's impressionable youth with money and time on their hands.  'Super Coach' Coleman was known for heading kids towards that white line for a try.

    A great advestisement for Souths having those two around the new ground - Fenench walked put on the club as soon as he got a decent offer and Coleman as stated above should have spent more time at the bay rather than redfern

    Coleman's grandmother was shown on the telly last night on 10 (late sports show) and seemed to have no teeth and not much else going for her.

    That'd be a typical Souths fan.

    Mario was shown the door in the same way Manly did to Fatty

    Wrong Kiwi. Fatty left as when up for his last contract, he believed he was worth more than what Manly were willing to pay. He was allowed to go and chose to sign with the Rorters. There was a lot of emotion but Manly did not shaft him, just played hard on what he was worth.

    Same situation though, they were both offered minimal contracts that probably should have been higher, had both clubs had any intention of wanting them to stay on

    Fatty should have stayed.  He was at the end of his power and wasn't worth what the transit lounge offered him and he knew it.  He was a shadow of his former self at the Rorters and could never say he was a one team guy.  Sad really.

    Agreed. His heart just wasn't in it at the Rorters. He would have loved to have been a one team player. He wanted to stay & Rowdy Shearer wanted to leave but Manly chose to keep Shearer.

    Rowdy only stayed for that year and was allowed to go. Later he said that he regretted leaving and thought it was a bad move.
