It seems Mitchy is still given way too much attention by WTs supporters. Media doing what it does best - flogging a dead horse when not much else is happening.

Oh i don't know there is such a thing as an NRL Grand Final they could write about....something Mitchell and his great mates at Parra will never play in...
True - but when you are not associated with either of those teams there is a limit to the amount of interest, and there are a whole lot of Sydney fans to engage. Moses certainly has a way of generating a level of interest that other players dont other wise pretty sure they wouldn't keep writing about him, especially during GF week.

You would think they would at least write about someone who played well during the finals series, not some bloke who missed crucial tackles, missed crucial kicks at goal, kicked the ball dead numerous times to gift the opposition 7-tackle sets etc.
Or perhaps ask for Mitchy's explanation for yelling abuse at a teammate who was playing on a busted leg (Nofoaluma), when he himself was playing like crud and generally just tanking?

I'm sure everyone agrees, when I see articles like this it makes me even more grateful that Moses is no longer at our club. I'd much rather blokes like Twal, the Huth, ET, Tui, etc. who do their talking on the field & always put in 100%.

Can't wait until our next game v Eels when Suli runs over the top of him.

It was shocking to watch his performance in those last two games for us. He put in a sub standard effort and claimed a mental health problem so the coach would grant him a release. No amount of spin can change what we all saw.
Need more props.

Why hasn't there been any articles bout how "suspicious" it was that Moses suddenly started performing from the get go at the Eels? Because it sure seems like he was purposely tanking for us.

It's got me stumped. Thing is though he hasn't performed at Parra, not with any consistency anyway. Why the media love him so much is anyone's guess.

I think he has performed okay at Parra. The tackles he completely missed even if had read them on time he would probably have got run over or bumped off anyway, so no real difference on the scoreboard. He has been chosen in spite of his weaknesses so they must think that overall he is worth it. My mate never complains about him.

Moses blames everyone else for his shortcomings and until he can admit that he has faults in his game he will never develop into a top liner,rather he will always be a player with question marks hanging over him.

Moses is a footballer but he has waived the right to ever be called a "professional" footballer.

If your mate is a Parra supporter he hasn't had much to complain about at all this season- they finished top 4. So Moses has had a cushy introduction to the Eels this season. Will be funny to watch the Eels fans bring out the knives for Mitch when the Eels start to slide down the ladder in seasons to come, they will be baying for his blood and wanting to gut the slimy little parasite. They will turn on him real quick don't you worry.
Just wondering if his "mental issues" will surface again when that day comes. In all likelihood yes they will.

Let's hope the people that matter took notice of his behavior and he never represents the Blues or the Green and Gold.

I'm sure Sterlo made comment not that long ago regarding his carry on and was not impressed.

He's left a bad smell that will linger forever..

Yes he did, however it didn't take him long to forget all that. He was one of the most vocal in singing his praises in the lead up to and during the finals.

When Mitch's stats came out for those last WT games they reminded me of the greyhounds at Wentworth Park when some dogs never left the starting box - they also ran zero metres. I think we used to get our money back in those instances.

Well someone must have hacked into your access details then.
It's either that, or you've just contributed to a story about Moses.

.......I just realised that this is a wasted post, as you won't read it........ :lol:

As mentioned already, Moses will get found out when Parra hit a rough patch. He is not a leader on, or off, the paddock and they (the Parra fans,) will get the knives out for him quick smart.
