    <div class="module-header">IN the end, there was one skeleton too many in Willie Mason’s cupboard. Mason is now the giant-sized proof that the majority of rugby league clubs have silently declared a “no troublemakers” policy in the game.</div>

    It may all be coming together quicker than we thought. Killer is a great kicker and his directional play at the end of 2008 was instrumental in winning us a Premiership, the captaincy should be finalised shortly, Choc is looking to sign on long term (see http://www.silvertails.net/news/4516-choc-to-stay-put), Foran getting the right pushes, Snake sizzling at the back, some pack competition for places. I know the halves need to be sorted but I am starting to feel pretty confident of a solid year.

    Mason would have been worth that gamble.

    [/quote] I would have thought it would have taken more than a moderator banning and an MWSE banning to shut you up mate.  Dissapointing.

    Haha, good onya Ryan. If we don't hear from you at all on the matter again then hopefully it means he is performing !! Have you been barred from places for your views as Mata has said ?

    Not until he brings out a version of "Bop Girl!"...which was probably the worst aussie song of the '80s,for all you Gen-iPods.

    "All Manly’s captains in recent years since and including Geoff Toovey have been confrontational. If “Killer” gets the nod, it will be a marked change in approach"


    I didn't think Geoff was confrontational. He always accepted the umpire's decision with decorum and good sportsmanship:)
    But out of loyalty to his tiring forwards and under (I'm sure) strict instructions he tried to buy a little time for the defence. Well done to Geoff.
    However . . . a prospective master stroke from Des? (Cam Smith is annoying, a grappler, etc etc but not a whiner).

    "If" he gets an NRL start . . .  he will be out to prove a point, and he has the ability (eg his barnstorming game first time for the Rooters up against the Dogs)  . . .

    But I disagree with 'at 50k you cant go wrong', when it is the whole culture of the playing group that is at stake.

    Having said that, I reckon Willie is far less 'poisonous' that some other players, but he has a bad reputation. He is popular with players precisely because he does speak what he thinks, and that makes him dangerous.
