That is now probably my second favourite Collingwood joke....I think I posted my favourite back in an old thread a couple of years back, must dig that up!

He's pretty awesome, you reckon he just needs to get the next tweet spot on, don't you?

So that recruiter was Adelaide's Matt Rendall

I excitedly await vlad's response.

Rendall's a fucking idiot. Can't believe there are recruiters who are still years behind. Hope he gets what's coming to him.

Vlad will probably support the Power now.

edit: So he's resigned, cool.

He was forced to resign, effective immediately. What a dumb thing he said.

I can't really hate Rendell because he's recruited pretty well in recent years.

But this is ridiculous.

I'm disgusted by this.

In less important news our War Captain seems to have done his foot in a practice match against Kim Duthrie, damn.

Rendell's comment

Quote:
"I believe the comments in a meeting with Jason (community engagement officer Jason Mifsud) were taken out of context. They were misunderstood. I have a strong track record of recruiting Aboriginal players. My comments were about where recruiting could finish up without proactive work. I was trying to help.

“However, knowing the implication of such reports, I’ve decided to stand down.

“To stay would attach those comments to the club, which is not the case either.”
I'd be willing to give him benefit of the doubt here, as we've seen no published transcript of his original comments, only what Jason Mifsud said that he said. So they could have be misconstrued, but still, there doesn't appear to be much grey area.

Stupid question, I know - Does the NAB cup affect the ladder at all?

Nope. Has no bearing on anything at all, really.

Our Foxtel is not being installed until April 14 now. They really dicked that one up. Good thing Dad got on the phone; he's more assertive than I and we got $45 off our first monthly bill.

I don't know, that sort of sounds like some arse-covering to me. If the comments were actually misunderstood to the level he claims they were, he could sue for defamation.

Resigning seems like the act of a guilty conscience... not that I have anything more than a vague idea of what's happening.
