Parramatta Eels tragic, hit-and-giggle cricketer, atrocious golfer, lover of sport generally!

PS Catch-22 – now that’s one of the all time classic satires!

KK, i think it would make an excellent stage play, and imagine the musical score to go with it. Imagine sort of like the Pink Panther theme music, given the intrigue and mystery along with slight comedy, of the Roosters cap 😂

Paul, I’ve never had an article called “Excellent” so your comment is going ‘straight to the pool room’! 👍 Thank you! And I agree, despite my satire about them, I am very envious and admiring of that organisation – they (and the Storm) are head and shoulders above the rest in professionalism.

Love that comment Cumberland!! Wish I could’ve worked that angle into the article 😂

😂 maybe with Michael Jordan on an incentive contract, thrown in

Great to see the Dragons season improve so much, after the poor start. And I’m an Eels fan. Lomax is a future superstar.

Fair comments Joe. I will never be throwing stones too hard, my hapless Eels were at one stage using brown paper bags to pay, and they still came last!!! 😢

That’s a very helpful insight, Mushi. I hadn’t thought about that but makes sense. I have no doubt they and Storm are head and shoulders above the others including my own Eels in that sort of professionalism and thoughtful management. Little wonder players want to play there.

Thanks Mushi, for being a good sport! And I will admit that I envy the Roosters in a lot of ways, they leave other clubs behind in professionalism, irrespective of the cap.

😂 Coastyboi, I also heard that 5 of the 11 herbs and spices are contained in the spice combination called Chinese Five Spice. I thought it would be a nice theme for this piece to use KFC given it’s an article about the Roosters, too

DP, your kind comments make the work of writing these worthwhile! Thank you 😛

Thanks for reading TLN! You are clearly “Force-sensitive”! 😂

Thanks Rellum, glad it brought a chuckle on this dreary day (in Sydney at least!)

Steven, now that would be a great episode of 4C. 😂

Thanks NickoM, maths wasn’t my strong suit though 😂

Thanks Bloke7, really glad I could clear that up 😂

😂 I think you articulate what many are thinking, Joe.

Thanks for the kind words, Sports tragic

Thanks for reading Pickett. Sorry you didn’t enjoy it. Note in past weeks, I’ve had a go at my own team and others, so not just picking on Roosters.

Thanks for reading, Skidmarx. No, not Dane, but I am huge fan of his. My satire is influenced by his brilliant work, but a reserve grade version 😂

Cumberland Thrower, that’s a pretty cool hypothesis!! And you of course read in my report that conspiracy theory disorders are a symptom of severe Parrasad 😛 have you seen a specialist? Though I for many years had to turn the NRL ladder upside down to give the impression of my beloved Eels being on top!! PS are you THE legendary Cumberland Thrower?

Thanks Bazza, though us Eels fans laugh with a deep ache in their soul! 😢

Thank you Dane, getting positive feedback from you makes me feel like a young reserve 5/8 getting some encouragement from Joey or JT!! 😛 Yes, the stars have aligned for Eels satire this week. Thanks again Dane, or can I call you Master Yoda?

Dane, this is truly hilarious and awesome. As a Parra tragic, even I can love this. Your intimate knowledge of Eel’s history shows the best qualities of a journalist. Some absolute pearls in this one 😂

Thank you the Barry, it is an honour to get positive feedback from league royalty such as you! And i just saw Dane’s piece, I am very pleased to have been an entree to Dane’s brilliant main course! Dane just delivers time and time again, he’s like Cam Smith for consistent longevity! 😂
