Commentators having wet dreams and setting new records for the banal, were pathetic.
So a certain midfield back made a comeback off the bench for the Blues Franchise after a sensationalised injury incurred at the Rio Olympics, so bloody what.
Images of him lolling on the bleachers, a rather languid warm up then an injection that showed the player basking in all the adulation that could be aroused as he ran onto the field in all his reflected glory.
It came to what, one midfield break that was nothing special, then butchered by fellow splintered arse, Prattly, followed up with two missed tackles, all for another loss for Umaga's mob.
Then it is revealed this morning that the collar adornments that I mistakenly assumed were a matter of rank, but were' it is assumed, a rejection, religious based, of support for an organisation that is charging "interest" on bank loans, a practice not permitted by his religious beliefs.
Who does he think contributes to his generous remuneration package, I assume he deducts the sum that could be from the BNZ and returns it. What about Investic, NIB, didn't the idiot have enough tape.
No impact, minimal effort, contributed nothing to his team, it was revealed he merely prevented another who might have made a difference from getting an opportunity.
It is widely reported the Blues players and staff were not aware Bill had NZRFU conscientious objection clause to allow his very selective action.
It appears to me it did not become an action until game time when the TV exposure would be much greater.
Of course the BNZ have little issue as they have had unmeasurable exposure.
I return to NIB and Investic who are equally into usury as a component of their business so was I correct in suggesting Bill, Koda and Tony could not access enough tape.
The guy is a Prima Donna who clearly believes there is an "I" in his spelling of the word team.
If it is so serious then let him go and play for the golden oldies where the exposure will not matter who paid for the bus.
I doubt a 'man' of the likes of Mark Hammet would be so accepting so maybe a comparison of the Hurricanes vs The Blues over recent years could be relevant?
