    SUSPENDED Manly forward Richie Fa'aoso has opened up about his controversial eight-game suspension by declaring: "No one goes out there to put someone on their head."

    The Daily Telegraph yesterday secured an exclusive interview with Fa'aoso, who expressed regret at the two spear tackles on Souths superstar Greg Inglis but was adamant he wouldn't alter his tackling style.

    RE: Suspended Manly enforcer Richie Fa'aoso

    In this age of sponsors, image, and contracts, players should treat rothfields totally inaccurate 'serial offender' tag as defamation, demand a retraction, or his resignation. (or see him in court $$$ style).


    Castle eagle, your topic heading is too long and will make replying to it a pain in the bott bott. fyi

      He could do that GE but I would prefer Richie to demonstrate on Rothfield what a proper pile driving spear tackle feels like :)

      RE: Suspended Manly enforcer Richie Fa'aoso opens up about his controversial

      Below are a couple of excerpts from the article above:

      He strenuously denied being a dirty player, revealing that he had only been suspended for one game in the past nine years.

      COLLEAGUE Phil Rothfield attacked Fa'aoso, saying: "Fa'aoso has become a serial offender. He is one of the worst exponents of foul play I've seen for years."

      Fa'aoso yesterday hit back.

      "You don't want to hear people say that about you and put it in the paper," he said.

      "I don't know where he (Rothfield) has come from, mixed Oztag. I don't know if he is watching the game but that is how the game goes sometime.

      "These things can happen.

      "To be honest I am not going to change my tackling technique or the way I go in low for a tackle.

      SINNER

      MANLY forward Richard Fa'aoso is not only a thug but an unremorseful one at that. His remark "these things can happen" in reference to two spear tackles on Greg Inglis was a stupid comment from a first grade footballer. He should spend his eight-week holiday in the spinal unit at Royal North Shore hospital, meeting some of the poor patients who are in there from football injuries.

      I didn't realise there were patients in the spinal unit from football injuries. Anyone know how common that is?


      ps @[castle eagle] I shortened the thread title because I kept getting error messages when I tried to post

      To quote Hunter S Thompson

      Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for f..koffs and misfits -- a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.

      Only problem Moondog, Phil has probably never heard of one Thompson, Hunter S.

      I understand that 'The Rum Diaries' was never screened in the Sutherland Shire. The film's distributors were concerned that the locals might think it was movie about the Bundy Bear and therefore the locals might storm out of the cinema complaining and wanting their money back.
