Raudonikis' comments about Mason But threatening strike action to hurt Origin angered Tom Raudonikis, NSW's first Origin captain. "Who does Willie Mason think he is?" Raudonikis said. "State of Origin is our masterpiece. Guys like Wally Lewis, 'Alfie' Langer and Ricky Stuart helped build Origin to what it is today. "It seems all the players want these days is more money. It all comes down to greed - they're all big heads. What about the fans, what about the game? What Willie said was disgraceful. Shocking. He should put a sock in it."
