#7118

Yeah but I don’t think Darcy has close to a million in gambling debts that another club president would be willing to pay off?


#7119

So what you’re saying is that the Parish developed a gambling problem while he was stuck on the forward flank and is now getting traded to Collingwoid?


#7120

They write it that way because it’s for tomorrow’s paper, but as I’m writing this after midnight… we are playing Hawthorn tonight!

#7122

RACIST


#7123

Haha, i know. Surely if they’re uploading the article on a Friday they could change that one sentence.


#7124

None of us realised how much the club has held him back. He’s prematurely aged!


#7125

Folk pore over these articles looking for the slightest slip up.

“… I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I’ve learnt so much from the relationships I’ve been able to build…”

Past tense. He’s gone.


#7126

Fkn typical! Can’t believe Woosha treated him so badly and he hates the club as a result!


#7127

To be pedantic, “have + past participle” is present perfect simple tense.

Unfortunately, it still means that he’s going. If he was intent on staying, he’d have used present perfect continuous, e.g. “I’ve really been enjoying my time here…”

Must be because he spent those years from 21 to 24 languishing in the forward pocket.


#7128

Leaving aside the “pedantic” stuff ( and thanks for that, I forgot the finer points over the last 65 years ) if he said:

“… I’m really enjoying playing at Essendon and I’m learning so much from the relationships am building…”

There would be less ambiguity. But as we know most footy players do not have a PhD in English semantics.


#7129

21, Given what we’ve seen from him over the last few weeks it is pretty exciting to consider the player he’d be when he’s 24.


#7130

So is geelong :wink:

Sounds like those kowtowing plonkers Woosha and X have created a pretty good environment for young footballers at the Club.

Of course some will continue to announce that Woosha looks disengaged and is not in it for the long haul whilst X only cares about generating profits.
