It might be time for Monaghan to be gagged. Here's some quotes from THIS week regarding the club chasing Orford. "The club hasn't spoken to me about it and to be honest I don't know what's going on." (Couldn't he just ask for a quick chat with Des Hasler after a training session or make an appointment to see Cummings??) They never said to me why they didn't want to sign me in the first place and they still haven't told me why they want to sign Matt Orford. I'm still in the dark. (Do they have to? Is he really trying to suggest that he spends day in and day out with these men and nothing has been said? What stops him from asking, rather than running off whining to the media? Maybe the club are being kind and protecting him from the truth?) On playing hooker: "It's not something I'm keen on doing. As captain I guess I have to do what's best for the team, but it's dissapointing." (Gee, well that sounded convincing.) "I was pretty happy with the way I started the season and the results reflected that, but apparently it's changed over the past month or so. (Ummmmmmm, Michael, I hate to say this but they've been chasing other half backs for over 12 months now). "I'm not sure where I stand at the moment." (Again, what stops him asking Des or the other staff when he spends a good 40 hours each week with them. Are we supposed to believe that the coach and captain don't speak?) I think you get my drift. Dig below the statements and it raises all kind of things. Either there's a complete communication breakdwon at the club or Monaghan is being very manipulative in his dealings with the media. I lean towards the latter option. I'm surprised it hasn't been shut down. I think Monaghan can say his goodbyes if we sign Orford.
