still proves nothing..in fact you have highlighted several consistent views. Yes i did say no one was bagging him in reference to other posters. I on the other hand find it odd that Joe has announced his wishes to leave the club on the basis of a lifestyle choice. Regarding his alleged drinking issues I was very careful to not reveal any details clearly said it was his business. These are issues previously reported in the media, perhaps unfairly. Goddard even alluded to Daniher's lack of professionalism and dedication during his rehab. I am not saying anything that is not already in the public domain although I am fully aware of the deeper truth to these allegations. Finally, my comment regarding trading Joe as being his most significant contribution is a tongue in cheek reference to the possible upside the club could receive in return. Just maybe we as a football team will be better for it in the long run. I do not see any of this as me character assassinating the individual nor have i flipped on any of my views throughout this period. In fact, if you want to go back some months, I even suggested then that Daniher could be the ideal trade option for the club...well before any of this current scenario, well before his Sydney catch up.Windy Hille wrote: ↑Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:19 pmHello Mr Contrary
no one is bagging the guy
But dont you think every Essendon supporter has a right to be a little pissed off with the bullshit reason being floated around as to why he is leaving.
I'm hearing he is on the piss all the time...not good for an elite athlete undergoing comprehensive rehabilitation.
All this while contemplating trading him away for better options / picks. Because he seeks a trade, you disrespect him and diss him.Windy_Hill wrote:
Good luck Joey...lets hope this trade request becomes your best ever performance in an Essendon jumper
The mind boggles.
So on this issue at least, I believe I have been very consistent and avoided denigrating the player.
I am sure like most of us, passionate supporters, there are going to be times when we flip flop on opinions. Why is this a problem? Things change, circumstances change, opinions change.
Who knows, maybe one day you may change your views on Langford. I dont believe other than some light hearted banter, anyone would hold that against you.
What I object to is that you seem hell bent on ridiculing almost everything i post. Now, I will be the first to accept thst sometimes whst i say may come across as opinionated. No one is perfect. But having been a member of this forum since 2001 and a former writer for the Essendon web site, I feel pretty comfortable with my contribution to this site.
May I suggest for everyone's peace, that we bury the hatchet and try to just get along. Not against rigourous debate, but lets can the slanging matches.
I regret it if my manner has offended and apologise f that is the case.
