So after his 60 minute story (on YouTube for those who missed it) and his book including the tell all group sex info.

What are your thoughts on him? Pretty simple poll... Either you like him or you don't.

After reading the threads on the kennel that really go into detail about his involvement in the alleged stories that he fails to mention in the book.... Im going to have to vote no.

Also saw him and willy mason on the drink years ago absolutely acting like tools. Urinating in public and carrying on. Disgraceful.

As a player and absolute magician .. can make something out of nothing every game. For what he has done on the field, go to the top of the class .. !!

For him as person off the field, from what i was seen personally and heard of what happens up in Townsville .. the guy is a A grade tool .. thinks he's bigger than the game and expects people to treat him as such .. end of story .. !!

He become a changed man after his Uncle was killed in gang fights at Inala in Brisbane

Before his Uncle died I thought he was tool

After he has been a true role model to the rugby league community and his people

Some people just need a kick in rear to see the light

Just found some info that I didn't know about.

Urge others to have a read cos I don't wanna report the gossip in case it's considered slander but the guy is an absolute dog.

Not a Qld fan at all , but in the last few years , he has cleaned his act up and seems to be really conscious of trying to help indigenous people and to be regarded as a pretty good person,
I still think that he played for a year or two longer than he should’ve though.
His mistakes are behind him and I hope that he’s sucessful at whatever makes him and his family happy.

As for takeing notice of the , Kennell, most there wouldn’t know what day it is , if it wasn’t for the date stamp on their ice packets

I Like the guy, think he is one of the best players to ever pull on a boot.

Would not believe anything those dopes from Belmore said.

Thurston to become an immortal - yeah! I like that too.

Good joke.

Probably looking for their wives but they're with JT.

Bluey worked over at the LNG plant on Curtis Island with a good mate of mine who is a mad WT's supporter as well

Nothing unusual was ever mentioned ......that doesn't mean nought though

Lot of that (if true )as I said would have been pre his Uncle's death and meeting his wife

The only thing that remotely stands out in the last 5 seasons was the alleged drug taking in the Qld SOO camp , though I get the feeling that JT might be pretty wrecked on life ;)

I've seen him in 4 autograph sessions ( 2 in Townsville for Laurie Spina Cup) one when Qld had their training day in Gladstone and one before a Cowboys game (we lost 64-6 )its funny , the boys and girls get told you can get JT's signature or the entire Cowboys squad minus JT signature :lol:

He never stopped smiling once , posed for a million photos , the Spina Cup signature sessions take 90 minutes

I hated him. I am close to people who went to school with him. He was an absolute tool. Having said that he has matured as a person and has shown a genuine interest in people’s welfare, especially the indigenous. People change, grow up and become decent human beings. Since his uncle was killed he has been a changed man and cleaned up his act. Seems to have time for everyone now. I like who he has become.
