Humility bring out the best in our character . He has talent and he can make a good footy career . All up to him now
So will Choc retract his ill informed attack of Chez regarding Jacko At least Jacko is now self aware enough to enjoy the opportunities that have been afforded him all these years
Great interview. I hope the bloke can kick on from here and really make a go of it. Won't bother going back to re-read the threads on the incident, but I remember quite a few laying the boot into DCE about that drama. Seems pretty clear Hastings is putting his hand up as the bloke who stuffed up, not DCE as some experts on here were stating. Go win a Man of Steel, Jackson!!
So why did Barrett burn him?
Hahahaha....yeah.....Twatmough apologising to Chez. Gold!!
Maybe man management wasn’t one of his strengths
Baz did say it was 12 months of incidents. This break of curfew was the last straw. If a coach can't trust his player, he needs to move them on to avoid a mutiny
“But Marge, look at that hang-dog expression. He's learned his lesson. Let's get him a present!”
Good to see he might be finally growing up. Bet we see him back in the NRL in the 2020 season , and my guess, Rorters!!
I take two things from this interview. 1. Why does he continually use swear words when conducting an interview which is being broadcast publicly? 2. If the matter was simply a break of curfew, which could have been punished by a one week relegation to reserve grade, why did it blow up into such a big issue? Why didn't the club put Hastings in front of the media to explain what he'd done and refute all the incorrect information? The matter was poorly handled by club officials. Letting the speculation fester is poor PR practice. Nip it in the bud. Hopefully our club has learnt its lesson to get on the front foot and get the facts out in public quickly and forcefully.
So I guess we will hear a public apology from Slothfield, Kent, Ritchie and Co over their appalling coverage of this issue and the out and out lies they published bagging the club and management.
This is the 4th mea culpa interview I have seen from Cletus in 3 years ...... I genuinely hope that this one sticks and he goes on to reach his potential ....
Jackson Hastings opens up on ‘incident’ with Daly Cherry-Evans Banished NRL star Jackson Hastings has revealed what “s***s him the most” in his infamous “incident” with Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans. DECEMBER 6, 20188:22AM Hastings now says his decision to skip curfew was much more damaging to his reputation than anything that occurred between him and his captain. “We got beat and we weren’t allowed to go out,” he said. “To be honest, the worst thing we did was break curfew and it’s something that I look back on and it’s just so stupid. “We wouldn’t even be sitting here talking about it if I just didn’t break curfew. It just pisses me off that I made such a dumb decision. “Looking back, I just can’t believe that I broke curfew and that’s what s***s me the most. “It’s true what they say, decisions make your career and I made a f***ing stupid one.” He denies he was involved in a fight, but admits there was an “incident” involving himself and Cherry-Evans. “We went out to all hours of the morning and then the incident took place,” he said. “I knew I’d f***ed up the morning of. I knew the decision that I’d made was terrible. “There was no fight. What’s a fight? A fight is when two people punch the s*** out of each other. That never happened. “The next day we sat down and spoke about it and we got on with it. “I’m not angry at him. I’m not angry at anyone. I’m angry at myself for making such a s*** decision.” He was almost immediately banished to reserve grade, despite Manly already facing an injury crisis and simultaneous salary cap crunch which restricted then coach Trent Barrett to just a handful of bench options. He says that was the moment his career turned around. After linking up with Blacktown coach Steven Hales, Hastings eventually saw his demotion as an opportunity rather than an embarrassing public snubbing from Manly. “You’d see blokes turning up with dirt all over their faces, cuts all over their body,” he said of his move to Blacktown. “I dragged coach aside one day and said, ‘I’m not in a position to be angry anymore... look at him, he’s just come from grafting a 12 hour day, digging holes or whatever they do and I’m complaining that I have to sit in a car for an hour and a half’.” “It just made me realise that it’s my own fault and that being bitter is not going to help, being sour towards everyone is not going to help. Turn up with a good attitude and just train hard.” Hastings is now an option for English International coach Wayne Bennett after making a boom start during his six-match cameo for Salford last season. https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/j...s/news-story/38a68e98923e36ed26a1032e2ca4cc9d
i have seen this guy many times usually blowing it out of his arse "i know that " I am the best "dont need to be told that "just watch me see how its done" I have always rated him as a player and now with the new attitude this game can be his . I wish him the best.
Just goes to show that until the full story comes out , nobody knows. There will be a few Dce bashers eating their hat.
So it's still not clear to me what actually happened. If there was no fight why did DCE fine himself $10k? Was JH the only one who broke curfew? Was going to the stripclub breaking curfew? I thought there were supposedly 6 players who went to the stripclub? If it was all JHs fault, as he repeatedly stated in this interview, why did Lane have such a problem with it? Also, JH said the exact same thing about his teammates when he was fostered out to Wyong by Easts - that they all turned up to training covered in dirt & cuts & scratches from their day jobs & he realised he was lucky to be able to play footy fulltime while they had to work.
I think we should just put it to bed and move forward. Hopefully the club learnt from it and put better systems in place for the future. I don't want/need the gory details. It's a spent cheque......
Much easier to show humility in a reflective state when the pressure is off.
Much easier to say the right things when you want to move on, much harder to do the right things in the heat of the moment.
