Not a bad setting to tell a player how you felt if you had the guts. What are they going to do, deck you when they are there representing the club?

And even if someone had the fortitude to do it, they would get called disrespectful and rude, not given credit for stepping out behind the keyboard. No win situation.

But our team have been good this year and busted their asses in all 3 games.It would be a tough marker to have a go at our boys.If I saw Brooks I would tell him to take that line on more though.Not in a negative way but just more of a back your ability kind of way.I know Chris Lawrence cops a lot of crap on here and his continual selection is an issue but you can never fault the guys efforts he totally bust his ass and tries 100%.

Because Burwood starts with a B, and has seven letters in it

What's the use of meeting the players .....is it going to improve their game,you would only be a nobody turning up to meet some NRL players,another face they will forget next day..

Gee,I just met the Wests Tigers players,that will get me somewhere,I see them on tv all the time........big deal....I would have more enjoyment watching them win games,no need to meet them and be a statistic....
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

It's good to see the players out in the community, kids in particular enjoy meeting players.

Ink,maybe I was a bit harsh,however if the children meet them and get joy out of it,then I'm all for it....children are our future....

Just that I have been there done that with other so called stars and in other sports...they nearly all seem full of themselves,no time for arrogance I'm afraid,but if others enjoy their company so be it....

I think these events are mainly catered for kids. I'm like you, i have no interest in these kinds of things. Like with members days, people always say how they spoke to player X at the members day and he was the nicest guy in the world. Of course they will be, cos its an event put on by the club, they're doing their jobs by catering to the members. That's not to say they aren't nice guys, but if you truly want to gauge how nice they are, its running into them out on the street when they have no obligation that is the big indicator.

GNR,exactly the point I'm trying to make,without the clubs colours or employment as an NRL player,are they still the same?...in the end we are all human beings,some more talented in different fields than others...

I happened to travel to the Big Smoke today on the Train and it was so sad seeing Lidcombe Oval with no one at least training on it!, but I will get over it.
Burwood is in the catchment area!, it appears to have support from a major supporter in the Real Wests Leagues club so what's the problem here, if I hadn't already been to the big smoke this week I might have considered hopping back on the train and paid this place a visit!.

When I was a kid, some of my favourite memories are of meeting players, and even now, the inner child sometimes kicks in. particularly with players of that era (a few I deal with professionally now and I have to sometimes remind myself Im not a kid cheering on the hill anymore, bit embarrassing really)

When I was living at Breakfast point I was doing laps (and struggling), benji was having a bit of agility session by himself, he gave me a bit of encouragement to keep pushing, I was that 7 yo again and grew another lung for a couple of minutes. There is still some fan boy in me :)

I wouldnt go out of my way to meet the players myself, but if I had kids, I have them there for sure.

I love that clubs do this.
