Who told you you were funny? It’s not your fault. I hold them responsible.
Your diversionary blurb on forum etiquette is more BS. As the grown ups know I have focused on the Leinster Captaincy in my remarks. Fact is, his roles for Leinster and a largely Leinster-populated Ireland side are near mirror images of each other so the points I am making are relevant to both in largely equal measure.
I’ll take it that you want Johnny to Captain until he decides when he wants to go and that you believe that is best for Leinster. Suffice to say I don’t agree with for the reasons already stated.
Look, you started a thread and the grown ups (every other poster) gave you the benefit of the doubt and you reverted to type. You did what you always do, you introduced hyperbole bollix to try and bury a player while you campaigned for another player.
You have been making these type of posts for 14 years on here. Where you push your player for a particular thing, we are all Leinster fans on here but it is clear to almost anyone who hasn’t blocked you that you are only a fan of former St Michaels players who play for Leinster. It’s a sad distinction at your age (you said you were 54) that you have not grown out of that yet but that’s your own business.
You come out with your usual uninformed and unsubstantiated guff about the player you are targeting. Player (A) is to dominant, player (A) has an unhealthy control on the group, player (A) is not the player he was, player (A) is to old etc etc. It is always done to get one of your favourites into the position of choice, in this case to get one of them installed as captain and the other one in as starting 10 in the big games.
Anyway feel free to write the utter drivel and I will continue to ask you to validate the points you are trying to make. You came up with a time frame that Sexton has been letting Leinster down in ie 2019-present and Sexton has only played for Leinster 11 times in that period of which we won 9 and lost to the same team Saracens on the two other occasions. Your classic go to move on here is to tell other posters they are playing the man not the ball, you definitely should know about that one anyway, targeting a player who has only played 11 games for Leinster in a 21 month period and saying he has been to dominant and controlling and often fails on the big occasions in that period. Pathetic stuff.
James Ryan or Dan Leavy don’t need any gobshites help on here to make it as Leinster captain they are both super grounded individuals and both are brilliant rugby players. Two guys that we (Leinster fans) can get behind and be proud of. If either become Leinster captain full time we will all get behind them and support them. Ross Byrne Is an excellent 10, probably why the coaches were confident of starting him for the league final 12 days ago, again he doesn’t need your help leading a campaign of drivel on here.
I’m done here now, it’s not fair on the other posters who have to see the two of us go back and forth like children and I know from your form that you just change the narrative when ever you are challenged on your absolute guff.
