    Was there a reason he wasn't at the Grand Final during the Retiring Players send-off thingy?

    Probably had too much pride to be paraded around the ground in such lame fashion.

      Perhaps his self-effacing nature, combined with a degree of embarrassment / disgust that he should parade around in front of a Souths banner had something to do with it.

      Nigel Plum wasn't there either. Is that Todd's fault too?

      I'm a little surprised Foran and Gutho weren't invited. Going to the Eels is similar to retiring, in some ways.

            Why wasn't Toovey given a lap of honour around the field in a Bugatti Veyron?? Cheap arsed bunch of pricks there at the NRL HQ!

            It's for retiring NRL players, so Gifty could have been there (if he wanted to attend). Perhaps @SeaEagleRock8 is right - these Gifty and Kite have to much class to attend such a pathetic show piece event.

            Nothing to be embarrassed for.. He was shafted by Manly. Good on him for continuing his career. All power to him. He was another manly legend.

              Apparently Dave Taylor was invited, but he turned up yesterday in Melbourne. Still confused, he then flew to Brisbane and just tweeted from Suncorp Stadium, "Where the hell is everyone?" It's not all bad news for Dave however, he now has 3 followers on Twitter. 2 gnarly grounds keepers, and a very trendy seagull named Seages.

                I wondered about that. I also thought that the banners they parade in front of should include ALL the clubs they've played for and the one with the most games, biggest and central.

                  I wondered what the criteria was for the players selected. Some of them were questionable, falogo & Newton had already retired from the nrl and played in super league then returned to the nrl but still got another send off today. Nrl playing favourites again I guess

                  That was a sad ass group of players. Gift is miles above all of them.

                  Maybe Gifty hasn't ruled out coming back if an offer was there from a good club?

                  Why do I get the feeling that when he finally retires, Nein will want to include Ray Warren in the pre-GF lap of honour?
