    The Sunday herald reports that Waterhouse went into our sheds after the game on Friday and was made to fell very unwelcome. I was told that a Director said something to him being in there when Centerbet is our sponsor.
    He then went and said something to his friend Scott P and scurried out.
    I was told he used his media pass to get in. That is a joke.
    Nine should take it off him. Oh sorry I forgot he gave them 15 mil and that would give him access to any where.

    Is private school friends meant to be a dig ?

    Not a smart move to be making enemies with powerful,influential sponsors of the game.

    I was hoping he was being told to go from the broadcast. Oh well not surprisingly this was just another political post yawn fest

    All good, it did come across as one a bit. Is it usual for anyone with a media pass to be able to get access ?

    I'd feel very uncomfortable with him in my change room. Perhaps he could send Emma Freedman.

    In the economics departments of our universities, for example, behavioural economists like to show how humans are susceptible to a thing called "loss aversion''. Loss aversion refers to the steps we'll take to avoid losing something already in our possession. Apparently, the feeling we have when we lose something can be more powerful than the feeling we get when we gain something, though we're often unaware of it.

    Can't see the big deal really. What's he going to do, go around the dressing room taking bets??? What a joke.

    Not sure how they would be school friends as penn went to Knox and finished in 1988 while Waterhosue went to Shore and would have been 6 (born 1982) when penn finished high school?

    You want to keep the people who make a signiifcant amount of money from gambling on sporting events as far away as possible from those people who have an influence on the outcomes of those sporting events.

    I'd ban him for that reason alone.

    Great piece by Malcolm Knox in today's Sun-Herald on Waterhouse. And yes, he does look a bit like Pete Campbell from 'Madmen'.

    ".... and remember, always gamble responsibly."

    I feel sorry for him today. He would have been chuckling after More Joyous but then would have given back many times that on Overreach and Pierro.

    That was a good read. Just watched Bryan Fletcher doing his best Tom impersonation.
    (Ok they hate Tom, lets get an ex-footballer that sounds like he knows what he's talking about to do the speil...that'll work!)

    Waterhouse - who looks like a toffee apple on a stick - has no right getting into such a hallowed place. He claims to "love the Boncos". Why? His family grew up at McMahons Point and he went to school at North Sydney. What; does he think yellow and maroon look good together? He needs to put his ego in a suitcase and rid his toffee apple head and neck from our screens. His mother also is a media hogger. She just loves being in the news, and admits she'd rather be an actress than a trainer but her horsey looks and whiney voice meant her career was predestined.
