I've behaved myself for quite a few weeks now, and don't really want to break that record, but there are a few things that need to be said. 1. This is with the benefit of hindsight, but Zorba's article on Saturday defending Hoppa now looks incredibly ill-advised. Most knew that the ball boy scandal was a storm in the tea cup, but I don't know what is achieved by a prominent club official coming out in support of him so publically. Give Hoppa an inch and he'll take a mile. Point proven on the weekend. i think he honestly believed that he would continue to be protected from the consequences of his actions. 2. This surely is the final disgrace that Hopoate can bestow upon us! Surely we cannot afford to give him "one last chance" when we've given him five last chances already? 3. We are very lucky that Delmege is our sponsor this year and that he was the one that pushed for Hopoate's retention. He (along with Zorba) will surely be whiping egg off his face this morning and assessing the costs to his brand that this represents. 4. Reportedly Hoppa was paid $90,000 for this year. This is how much bang we received for our $90,000 <img src='http://www.smh.com.au/ffximage/2005/03/21/johnhopoate2_narrowweb__200x302.jpg' alt='' style='vertical-align:middle; border:0' /> The club MUST act decisively. Hoppa must go!
