    I think Slater was cemented a grub when he had a go at Cory Paterson about his depression.

    As for Smith, you could factor in when McKinnon who was clearly injured to a more serious extent than normal and he was trying to persuade the ref to not putting McLean on report by saying "he did it to himself"

    Grub in a different way than most associate but still dog acts.

    Yeah as I said, I can't see it with Slater.

    A lot of the calls over the years stem from incidents like when he accidentally kicked Klemmer in the chops, which I put down to people never having jumped in the air and caught a ball in their lives.

    Or when he would slide in to stop tries, which I never saw as dangerous personally and is actually a good trait IMO.

    Anyway it's just my opinion.

    I think Tigers fans have a particularly dim view of Slater  - the kick on Skandalis was particularly nasty and uncalled for - certainly worse than Kasiano or anything Josh Reynolds has come up with.
    The other Slater kicks certainly nowhere near as bad, and taken in isolation all pretty innocent. It's just that he seemed to do it a little too regularly for my liking.

    The Danny Williams king hit on Mark O'Neill another pretty shocking incident that probably doesn't make Tigers fans overly fond of Storm players.

    Well ur opinion is fucking wrong, because slater and smith are cunts of the highest order

    The intentional, disgusting kick in the face to skandalis was one of the worst things I have seen on a footy field. Deadset horrible.
    If the kick in the face to klemmer was not even somewhat intentional - even if it was just a reaction - why does it not regularly happen? Why doesnt it happen in the fucking afl 500 times a game? If it wasnt intentional/a bad reaction, it would happen a lot more with other players.
    He saw klemmer coming in to smash him and he kicked out to protect himself. Literally the only contact in that tackle is slaters studs on klemmers throat. Then smith has the hide to argue that klemmer made the contact first. Was klemmer going to tackle him in the air? We dont know because slater kicked him in the head before it happened. Its the old bart simpson - im going to throw punches and if you walk into them its your fault.
    Sliding in with his knees and smashing guys after they have scored - I mean, if it wasnt a grubby thing to do, why did they change the rule?
    Teasing a bloke about depression?
    So many things seem to happen around him, its just a little too much for it to just be a coincidence.

    Smith arguing with the mckinnon thing, fucking disgusting.

    A lot of it comes from smith just being given so much more lee way than others when arguing with refs. yes its because he is good at it, doesn't come at the refs screaming, but argues every point and is allowed to do so much much more than others. Which is partially the referees fault.
    Oh yeah and the neck twisting, arm twisting, knee and leg twisting, stomping, whining etc. I mean, when he got marched a few weeks ago for dissent, instead of just shutting up and getting back after he was marched, he then continues to argue about it. I dont think he is a "grub" as such, but he certainly is not a likeable character on the field for anyone who doesnt support QLD or the storm. Physically, smith is not the typical "grub" he is more of a cerebral one, but still finds the time to repeatedly kick issac luke in the face, or put someone in the crossface crippler.

    The captains job is not to manage the referees, its to manage his own players. Its to take the direction from the referee and deliver it to his own players. Not argue decisions or explain his point of view on a call. I fucking hate that players talk to the referees and argue decisions etc. Fucking hate it, it doesnt happen in any other sport I can think of except for soccer, and its fucking terrible watching the way players in soccer react to referee decisions.

    If I was in charge of the referees, I would be working to establish new rules for the way they talk to players and the way players talk to them.

    The refs make a decision, if a player argues it, he is penalised. If he continues to argue it, he is sin binned.
    If the decision requires an explanation and its a stoppage in play, the referee calls the captain over, not the captain initiating the convo. If the captain initiates it, he is penalised for delaying the game.
    The referee explains the decision/warns players etc - if the captain argues, he is penalised.
    The referees call players by their numbers, and the players call the ref Sir - no one besides the captain should be talking to the referee anyway.
    If a try is scored and a player comes sprinting over to him screaming to check something, fuck off, sin-bin.

    Some small changes like that will go a long way to bringing some respect back to the referees.

    I dont think so mate.. lol.
    For example, I have a mrs that I "love" I dont have to have another chick somewhere that I fucking 'Hate" in order to reinforce that I "Love" my mrs.
    I fucking "love" kfc, I dont have to fucking "hate" maccas in order to love kfc.

    You can enjoy something and "love" it without having to be a cunt to things you dont "love"

    You're a bit of a nutjob on occasion Pieman but it's hard to argue with any of that.


    Edit: meant for the post 2 above this one.

    There is a name for people that don't have that range of emotions, might be an idea to go and see a shrink mate. You need to be able to hate to love or you wouldn't know the difference.

    absolute utter rubbish

    People most certainly do need to have a range of emotions - but to say you need to hate some things in order to love some things - is fucking stupid.

    Did Krump just agree with one of Pieman's posts and then immediately afterwards disagree with it?

    man love
    homoerotic, but not quite homosexual activity between two males; pairs nicely with "sausage fest"
    Derrick and Dillon were in the dogpile sweating, and a moment came along filled with man love.

    Weird analogy. Not least because you're comparing a football competition to marriage (and why I used the inverted commas in my original post for love and hate in relation to sporting teams). For starters, in sport there is basically one winner at the expense of all others, so for your team to win you're hoping that no other team does, and when they do, it is at the expense of your own team winning. You don't need another marriage to be unsuccessful for yours to be successful.

    Also, as someone who has been married almost 15 years, I suggest you don't adopt the food analogy in relation to your better half - "Yeah I love you honey, but your cousin's alright too, especially when she adds some of her secret sauce. I could do with some of that right now."

    No, two seperate posts. Krump is actually cleverly implementing a physical example of the topic - showing love, then instantly 'BOOM' backhand for F-Off i hate you !


    Love the Foreigner link mate Wink

    I never compared football to marriage. I compared it to loving a mrs, I actually meant my GF. As far as marriage tho, no, I was not using that as an analogy. I too used inverted commas, because its a hypothetical discussion and because love and hate is relative to the individual.


    Mate your post said that you have to hate other teams and players so that you can appreciate your own team in comparison... which to me is a silly thing to say. So I applied it to some other situations.

    As far as you second paragraph, Yeah mate I agree, brilliant philosophy to have. You can also not fucking hate your wife's cousin simply because its not YOUR wife.
    Just like people don't hate other teams just because they are not the team they support.

    Haha. Football isn't meant to be as complicated as love.

    In terms of football hate, from past posts I'd say that you hate Cam Smith, especially when he's talking to the refs.

    I agree its not meant to be as complicated, but some people sure as hell pour more passion into supporting their footy team than they do looking after their own kids etc.

    I dont hate cam smith, I dont know him.
    I hate the way the referees bend over for him though. Dont get me wrong, you are more than allowed to hate something, but I just dont think you NEED to hate something in order to love something lol

    what an odd few posts haha
