McCrone might be the worst to play 100 games.

Tupou is definitely in the grand final of worst ever.

Bulgarelli?

I vote we boycott the Boogs ceremony this year if GE doesn't change it to the "Golden topous" (sic)

I've been watching matches since 1982, and I am struggling to think of a worse player than Tupou. He really must never play first grade again.

Apart from the butchered try and cocaine scandal, wasn't Boogs ok?

Far better than Tupou.

If you're talking coaches then Stuart should rank as number 1.

What's his winning % since 08? ..... 24%
What's his career winning % outside of the Roosters? ..... 17%

I can only assume Ricky ran over one of your cats and didn't stop. You're a tad obsessive on the topic.

I'm pretty comfortable with where our team is at atm. We've improved a lot since BA has taken over, and are overall a much more competitive footy side.

Sure we've had some key players recruited, but it's no coincidence that players that were at the club last year have improved a lot since Ricky Stupid left.

Obviously we're currently out of the 8, but a win tomorrow could change that. I know if rather be in our shoes than yours.

Yeah he was. I remember he played on really good game against Manly at least.

Dugan will always be the worst to me.

Frawley and Orford for me too

Tupou drops down the list because he is a depth/backup player

Orford by a country Mile. The club were in the market for a half, settled on a Dally M winner who turned out to be a Lemon. If we bought someone else with that money things might have turned out very different.

I remember a game where Boogs made something like 50 tackles? There have been plenty of worse players to line up in the lime green.

Anyway, on topic....

I'm loathe to kick a man while he's down. IMO more than enough has been said about his performances in the game day threads. I have no doubt Bill is as down on what he has dished up as we all are.

Having said that, some serious questions need to be asked about his recruitment.

The Warriors let him go for a reason. Did we think he would develop under our structure? or did we just grab him as no one else has shown any interest in coming here? ... And why the F@#k has he been picked in FG for so many weeks in a row?

Either way, if he lines up in FG again I'll just about give it all up.
