Paul 'Poppy' Puopolo is Lindsey Thomas' successor as the weakest and worst player in the league


#422

What do you reckon?


#423

Also, if this can be the new ‘Wim gets weirdly angry about something then fights everyone’ thread,+ that would be great cause I don’t think I’ll come in here much.

+title clearly needs some work


#424

Again, and this is also true in this case, I’m only replying to people who I’m starting to think about taking a restraining order against.

If someone wants trouble, as the Duke said, I’ll accomodate ya.
But let’s be clear about this, I did not start this stuff, and I always try to be polite.


#425

If that’s really the way you see it then I’m not going to change your mind.

You’ve had it explained to you by heaps of posters on this board a great many times, so theres really no point in me doing it again.

All the best


#426

I don’t know what you want me to do?
HAP thought I was talking about Thomas when I clearly wasn’t.
He asked whether my post was relevant to Thomas and right off the bat, I said no.
He mentioned what players are hard-wired to do, and I told him someone else said that so he should ask them.

Despite him constantly getting it wrong, I tried to point him in the right direction to no avail.
At no time did I get angry with him.

If you think I’ve been unreasonable, then fine. But I honestly fail to see how I could have been more helpful.

And if you’re serious about not calling me out, I’d really appreciate that, thank you.
Only you’ve told me that before, haven’t you.


#427

With respect, I’m really not interested in any of that and I didn’t even read the details of the slanging match that you were having.

As I’ve said already, I am really fundamentally not interested in fighting with you, or anyone frankly. Hope that’s ok

Thanks


#428

So are you two fighting or not fighting. Its hard to tell.


#429

I have no idea!

I want this thread to be about its original purpose, being Lindsay Thomas is a caaarnt


#430

You’re not The Lone Ranger there …


#431

I have to admit, my first thought when i heard there was an incident in the Port game about Lindsay Thomas was to wonder if there was another Lindsay Thomas that had been recruited (like the two Tom Lynches). I genuinely had no idea Port had picked him up. When/why did that happen?


#432

Port went a bit crazy last year

Lindsay Thomas
Tom Rockliff
Jack watts
Jack Trengove
S Motlop
Trent McKenzie

In one offseason. Makes zero sense to me.

Thomas was a rookie though.


#433

He was a rookie? Those rules have got to change surely.

And they also recruited McKenzie!! I didn’t know that either


#434

what a bunch of kochs


#435

Seriously between this lot they might have one decent footballer.

Thomas’ goal kicking ability
Rocky’s ball gathering and drinking ability
Watts’, I don’t know, hair?
Trengrove’s, nah I got nothing
Motlop’ excitement machineness and also eating ability
McKenzies long kick


#436

Tank and elite set-shot kicking.


#437

I’ll take your word for it!


#438

There aren’t many better at set shots, man.


#439

Yeah I’m being genuine, I will take your word for it. I haven’t watched Melbourne much in the past few years, post the Jack Watts Sucks’ period of his career


#440

Yep, elite shot on goal. Reckon he can play but he just has a severe lack of urgency or dare I say it “laconic”


#441

Nice get using the term “tank” in reference to an ex Melbourne player.
