Sam Thiaday retirement

The last true character of rugby league imo.

The end of an era?

In my opinion the modern game is suffering from a lack of characters, in it.
There’s no big personality’s left in the game and I believe what makes rugby league great is the personality’s that have been involved in the game.

Love him or not, Sam Thiaday is a big personality in our game and his type are getting fewer and the game is suffering for it.

Willie Mason was another one, I didn’t always agree with him but I respected him for being himself and being unapologetic about it, the game needs these types of characters and I think they’re a dying breed.

Yeah I agree.
The Sims brothers all speak so well… they maybe not characters as such… But the media ignore them and we have to listen to dullards like Lockyer instead.

Media training when players are juniors creates what we see today

Such a great way for Big Sam to retire. I really enjoyed it. Was true to himself and let his character show as always. Players are so cautious now but one or two will always slip through the cracks.

maybe we should sign sam for next year. lol

He was a very good player , played well above his weight and ran a great line as well

And you had to love his aggression ,especially as a Qlder

Best of luck in retirement , a great role model and ambassador for his people

Good summation Hap……

I agree eh……
He was charasmatic and good fun.

Tariq Sims is good. If you watch Vossys show the fan u see some insight to players.

Big Sammy B is good if u can get past the accent.

As for big characters, who else we got?
Theyre mostly shy guys (Tuamalolo) or nervous nerds (Teddy, Brooks) or cocky arrogant twits (Norman, James Roberts)
