Seriously? He says *smile* on radio and TV and has a clear bias against the RFC. Big deal. You guys are making out he’s Rolf Harris.

Surely we all understand that football media are all about clickbaiting. Let's not fall for that crap and stop taking it so seriously. Jack Dyer said some horrible things about Collingwood and their supporters but everyone in football loved him. Why do we insist on making everything a personal affront? Sometimes I am so dismayed about how fragile football supporters have become.
I have always loved the kaliedescope of characters in the football world and always choose to laugh rather than get all upsidoosy and throw the toys out of the cot.
But then I'm a dinosaur...

Dear achillesaurus I reserve the right to castigate these “clickbaiters” when appropriate whenever they have a crack at our club and/or players.
They’re a mob of scabrous pricks who should all be sent to the Ukraine front line, so they can learn the reality some humility

I'm not a fan but good on Cornes for raising money for charity.

A sceptic might say it's a bit of a PR exercise to gain popularity (Shane Crawford many moons ago) because people have tired of his negative schtick but at least he's done it.

Credit where it is due, ran a marathon and a half a day for 12 days and raised 337 grand for kids with cancer.

The man is a hero.
Well, at least good on him for giving the money to kids cancer rather than the end-of-season Port footy trip.

But the bloke has said publicly many times that he runs for fun - it's his thing, and he does hundreds of km's per month as his favourite sport. So affording him full credit for going on this charity run would be like me claiming hero status for me going off and playing golf for ten straight days.

I've got a better idea - why doesn't he just shut his mouth about Richmond for ten successive days? I'd definitely chip in for that.

Yeah. Good on him for raising all that money.
But he’s still a wanker.

Can not believe the amount of people who let him live rent free in there heads.

Exactly, ooo the bad man said something about football that isn't what I think so I hate him now.

People are so *smile* childish sometimes. The bloke has just pushed himself to superhuman levels to raise a lot of money that can make the difference between kids living and dying and it's like, yeah that's ok but he hasn't said anything good about my footy team this week so I don't rate it.

Who said they don’t rate it?
I didn’t like him prior, am I supposed to like him now?

Nah, as I thought. Most who don’t like him acknowledge the run. Some may question his motives, but nobody downplays the magnitude of the run that I saw with a quick recap. Just a lot don’t like him. Not sure why that bugs you

Cornes will be apoplectic! Sydney have signed Papley to a 5 year deal meaning Papley will be 31 when this contract runs out. 31, same age as Tim Taranto when his contract with Richmond runs out…. And a whopping 6 months younger than Jacob Hopper when his contract runs out. Outrageous!
