Nowhere in my reply did I say Dce was the weakest player in the group?
Lol, yes I did jump to that conclusion. Anyhow my only point was about secret ballots.
As for whether I'd get along with DCE, I get along with a very small and select number of humans, hence the amount of time I spend here! But sure I would probably find him an interesting person to talk with, he's had a rather eventful career in footy, that's for sure :)

I find it amazing that people on here that don’t know DCE and have not even met DCE are blooding for him to be sacked as captain.

Just sayin’
I think it's more the fact that he has had his go and hasn't succeeded.
And Does Not carry the team when a captain is needed to.
It would be different if he was a successful skipper and actually led by example.

Just My opinion
Put DCE behind the Penrith team
and Cleary behind the Manly team
and both teams wont change positions on the ladder

I would personally like to see a co-captaincy between Chez + Jake but in saying that I don’t think you need to know someone personally before deciding whether you believe they are a great captain/leader or not. I never met Jamie Lyon and I loved him as Captain.

Well ,that's very debatable my friend.
We will never know.
We know what happened in this years SOO series my feathered friend

Cleary could not get his superior NSW team on paper up

Maybe, but I’m not convinced, however, I know which player earns the respect and who I’d follow into battle and bleed for and I am all manly, Cleary’s team mates love and respect him.
Unfortunately DCE is a very different character (football abilities aside) and judging by our on field demeanour and results, it’s obvious our team doesn’t feel the same way about their half and worse their captain.

The fact is

Cleary went into battle with a more experienced NSW team on paper and hot favourites to win the series

And he lost the battle to DCE

Credit to DCE for Leading his Maroon Men to a series win

Sorry Bozo, I just don’t see it that way, SOO is very different, yes Qld won and yes DCE was captain and opposed Cleary, all that’s correct, but to say DCE lead them to victory is stretching it a little (other than to acknowledge he had the C beside his name) I’d credit Slater and the team as a whole more than suggesting DCE inspired them to victory. Good on DCE, I’m sure he rates those 2 origin series wins amongst his most precious moments, it a shame he hasn’t produce some similar moments for his club during his time as a leader with us.

Do you think that anyone else would have succeeded as captain over the last 7 weeks?

I respect your perspective but I do not agree with it

The SOO arena is the most intense and competitive arena of all

and Under pressure Cleary had his opportunity to rise but he fell

And all the people that thought DCE would fail also fell with Cleary

We will agree to disagree :)
