My argument has never been the opposite of yours regarding Australian selection, my argument is that international football is irrelevant and i don't care who gets in the Aussie side...
That's not the argument. Your wasting my time.
No, he had a handshake agreement. Not legally binding. Forced out, as in the expression not a literally term you muppet.
It shows form. Add to that the fact that he expressed his wishes of retirement to Gould, and you have a guy who is no better than SBW. Both are scumbags of the highest order. It's quite interesting to note than both men present as unassuming characters.
You said you'd pick Johnson 6 years ago over Gallen, and would never drop him. So now you have Gallen in there?
Again, you prove what an utter fool you are. A few pages back, I clearly have both in the team, with Gallen as a second row selection.
Too right I'm about form, because that's what counts. It counts a hell of a lot more than stats. Based on your stats, Farah has usurped Smith, and if Origin is a 'selection trial' for Australia, then based on your OWN criteria, Farah should be the Australian #9 over Smith.
It's quite humourous to watch you fail and fail again, statman.
The only way for me to put it is this: I put great weight on the different tiers of RL. Unless a player has a few dud performances on his level (for example, Smith for Australia), he doesn't deserve to get dropped for playing poor for club, that’s to say: I would still pick a player even if he’s playing NSW cup/QLD cup based on what he’s proven to have done at a higher level, current club form takes a backseat. I have stated a fair few times that I pick Harrison and Myles simply on the fact that they qualify through their Origin performances. This is precisely why I talk about club into SOO into Australia. Each tier supersedes the one before it. Cam Smith has dominated year after year at the highest levels, and you want to hand the jersey to Farah based on one good series? Based On recency? You don't know a single thing, mate. Hell, how about entertaining me by stating your criteria for picking Thurston over your flavour of the month, Reynolds, you stooge?
