    Anthony Mundine explains why he’s better than Jarryd Hayne

    Post by ryno_ on Tue Sep 29, 2015 3:56 pm

    “With respect to them all, I think I’m the best,” Mundine said. “No one has walked my walk.

    “There’s no man that has done what I’ve done and crossed over sports like I have.

    “I was one of finest players in rugby league. I left in my prime at 24 and switched to boxing.

    “We’re talking about the hardest gladiatorial sport on the planet. There’s the science and artistry. It’s not easy man.

    “I won three world titles in descending weight divisions. I started from scratch but beat fighters who had long amateur careers and had been the Olympics.”

    But now there’s a new kid on the block threatening to challenge Mundine’s claim to the throne — rugby league star turned NFL player Jarryd Hayne. And “Choc” has been quick to dismiss him as well.

    “Like I said, no one’s achieved or done half of the stuff I’ve done,” Mundine said in an interview posted to the Facebook page of The Locker Room.

    “If you do your research, you’ll see that. I will never get the credit or just due that ... I’m the best athlete ever produced to come out of this country, ever. There’s no one (who has) walked my walk.

    “All the hype that Jarryd — I’m not a hater ... I’m a positive dude and send positive vibes and Jarryd Hayne, what he’s doing is magnificent.

    “But I’ve done so much more in so much of a harder sport. To switch from a team to an individual sport as boxing. And he’s going from a team to team. He’s doing well, but it’s gonna be hard.”

    Now, Im as shocked as you are that a humble person like Mundine is talking himself up. But seriously, needs a reality check.

    "One of the finest players in rugby league"? When was that? He was an ok winger for a while... but the finest winger is still a winger.

    He was and still is a dick but he was also a 5/8. I don't mind calling him all sorts of things but winger is a little harsh.

    He was a shit 5/8th though. Cost his team a premiership and then ran away from the sport because he wasnt good enough.

    The stupid thing is, he actually has a point....but nobody will back him on it because he already does it too often on his own behalf.

    Thus, instead of the general public looking for ways to prove his point, we are far more inclined to look for opportunities to disprove it.

    No he doesnt - his argument is that he was the finest rugby league player in the game. That's simply untrue. He was an ordinary 5/8, an ok outside back.

    Played 3 origins from the bench, winning 1/3.
    Played 2 GFs as a 5/8, lost them both.
    Played 1 GF as a the worst player in the backline and rode coattails to a win.
    Played 0 Australian games.
    Awarded 0 honours at the DallyM awards.

    He played with/against Langer, Daley, Meninga, Lyons, ET, Dymock, Lockyer, Johns, Harragon, Menzies, Girdler, Tallis, Toovey... and calls himself the finest player in the league? Fuck outta here.

    And this is what I was referring to when it comes to people being more inclined to disprove his point.....

    I never said he's 100% correct, all I said is that he has a point (amongst his other rubbish).

    He certainly wasn't the finest League player but to make SOO and to win a premiership, probably does put his achievements in League ahead of 95% of blokes that have played the game.
    To then attempt a completely different sport and be relatively successful does probably put his transition ahead of most others, including Hayne.

    Well done on him being good at one sport, transitioning and being good at another. Its not an easy thing to do - but hes dead wrong that he was the finest league player and at the top of the league before he left, and that was his argument, not that he transitioned better then anybody else.

    He must have a fight against some retiree/drunk on a barstool coming up, looking for publicity.

    I would have thought "There’s no man that has done what I’ve done and crossed over sports like I have" is suggesting that he has transitioned better than others.....

    The way I read it he was including being the finest league player and walking away for a new challenge in a new sport as "things ive done".

    At least he didn't try and use the 'Race' card this time. Neutral

    lol!

    To be honest, I'm fairly certain I went too far....

    If my insult has created instant and significant turmoil in your life, make sure you reach out to Lifeline or a similar such service.

    I think what Mundine has done is far more than what Hayne has done.

    Is he a fuckwit though....sure is....same as Hayne. Go figure.

    Yeah, and how many drunks has Hayne grabbed from a barstool and flogged in the ring and called it a "main event" and a "professional fight"? None. 1-0 Mundine.

    Mundine's greatest ever highlight was that interview where he spoke for Ferguson.  Not beacause of what Mundine said or did, but because he managed to make Ferguson look like an even bigger cock than he already did.

    Fucking bobblehead cunt.

    Isn't that where bobblehead came from? Sitting beside Mundine nodding away like he's had serious brain trauma.
