"I'll fight to keep my spot": Canberra Raiders half Aidan Sezer

Aidan Sezer has denied recent speculation he might head to Huddersfield, but concedes 2019 could be his last in green.

"It was news to me that I was going to Huddersfield," Sezer said. "I'm just concentrating on the back end of the year and my future will sort itself out. I'm still on contract here next year and I'll see my contract out if I have to. It's something that will have to wait until the end of the year."

Fair enough. Sounds like he's not too distracted, more motivated if anything.

He's smart enough to know he's playing good footy as the half of a top 4 team and may just be a GF halfback to negotiate from in future.

Thats my take on it too. Brushing off rumours. Not dismissing the situation but also not worried about it yet. He knows the next couple of months are what really counts in dictating his future.

Canberra Raiders' Aidan Sezer wants to stay in NRL

Post by BJ » August 6, 2019, 2:26 pm

Sezer seems a pretty level headed guy. Certainly playing very well at the moment. He is linking with both Hodgson and Wighton very well of late. They are all complimenting each other, the wide quick balls to Sezer are making Hodgsons short play to the forwards even more dangerous.

Roosters rushing defence and high speed football will be a true test.

Hopefully we go real deep or win the comp, with Sezer continuing his recent good form. Will be great for him and his next deal, and make sure we don't carry any of his salary into next year.
He's absolutely not going to be here next year.
I will have fond memories of him regardless of the last 3 years if he can manufacture some good form in the finals.

So let me get this straight.

Aiden Sezer has phoned in his footy at ages 25, 26 and 27, i.e his PRIME, just utterly phoned it in and hasnt even been trying, and now he has a chance to secure the

*checks notes*

golden goose that is a back up halves role at this club and a steep pay decrease, or get moved to another club for a pay decrease but not as steep, or finish his career in the ESL where he'll have his pay cut in half... that's when he begins to try?

:lol: As i said, that's utterly embarrassing
It's ridiculous really. If anything, he's now getting more ball from Hodgo and is playing behind a forward pack actually moving forward.

Nice to know people are noticing that he's playing better and more consistently though. It's good to watch.

I didn’t rate his performance at all on the weekend and the forward pack was going forward!

Sezer was below par on the weekend, but the service he got from his inside players was below par as well.

Hopefully the whole team take it up a notch over the next few weeks.

But the spine has been good for a while now and we weren’t disgraced by the Roosters. It was definitely glass half full on the weekend.

I'd even say the majority of our guys were below par yet we only went down by 4 points to the defending premiers and equal favourites this year. That's a decent positive to take out of the game.

So on the weekend he was no longer playing for a contract? Or was it just a below-par game?

Sezer would’ve played better if he had got a lot more early ball from Hodgson!!
Hodgson slows it right down when he skips out, do the Peter panda dance then before u know it the defence is right up!!

Sezer has all the skills, and is a good defender.
Seems to me it's more about confidence and willingness to inject himself into the game. Plenty of games seem to pass him by without really stamping himself on it at all really.
When he does you can see that he has plenty of ability.

So I really don't know why people are getting offended on his behalf when it's noticed that almost all of his best games for us, have been those surrounding when we have clearly signed his replacement.

Because it's incorrect. It's also a bit of a history rewrite.

Sezer started the season playing well. He got injured after Round 2. The Raiders went on a winning run so Sticky did not feel inclined to change halfbacks. When Sezer did come back in, he started playing well again just about from the start. Around this time, the English fellow was signed.

Talk about history re-write;
Sezer played the first 2 games, and was as average as you could possibly be as a half.
1 try assist, 0 linebreaks, 0 linebreak assist, 3 runs for 22m, AVG kick metres 156, 1 forced drop out, and 4 kick errors.

George Williams being signed to play here was an open secret that was being talked about by people from here to the old mother land before a ball was kicked in anger for 2019.
So what? Sezer wasnt trying to begin the season, despite the club having already agreed to his replacement, and everyone and their dog knew it, including Sezer, and only started trying because the club released an official press statement?

Apparently I'm re-writing history, but none of you blokes were upset that Sezer was injured and we lost an in form player. Sam looked better than what we got out of Sezer after Round 5, it took more than 3 weeks for people to be sick of Sam. (Which leads into my theory that Sam Williams is the best "3-week halfback" in the NRL)

Sezer was NOT in-form in those first 2 weeks. He did barely anything.

If you're changing your position to say Sezer wasnt in form, then that's perfectly fine.
The problem is you have said time and time again:

In my opinion he has been phoning it in over the years. Especially when you consider his potential, and what he can and has done most recently.

The first two games of this year he did barely anything, so I don't know if you want to call it phoning it in, or being out of form, or what. But it's not like he was playing well and shoving it in our faces.

You'll also notice I posted the stats showing that when you select for 'Per game average', he's not even in the bottom 10. Pretty much smack on average defender in centre's when you look at it on average per game.

That's not an argument to say stats show everything. But you know the old saying; Can't run without stats..

So when it suits you, he's phoning it in. And when it suits you, he's just out of form. And then when it suits you, he's been replaced and is now actually trying.
None of these things need any explanation or logic, you can just blindly accuse a player for not trying without any logical rhyme or reason/

In my opinion he has been phoning it in over the years. Especially when you consider his potential, and what he can and has done most recently.

The first two games of this year he did barely anything, so I don't know if you want to call it phoning it in, or being out of form, or what. But it's not like he was playing well and shoving it in our faces.

So when it suits you, he's phoning it in. And when it suits you, he's just out of form. And then when it suits you, he's been replaced and is now actually trying.
None of these things need any explanation or logic, you can just blindly accuse a player for not trying without any logical rhyme or reason/

Got it. You're completely **** full of **** :lol:
It's not when it suits me. I think he was phoning it in during 17/18.
There was only 2 games at the start of this year and he didn't play well. Call it what you like. He played to his talent when he came back into the team. Funny timing.

I don't know why you're getting so hostile about this ? Carrying on like a goose swearing like that. Are you OK?

George Williams being signed to play here was an open secret that was being talked about by people from here to the old mother land before a ball was kicked in anger for 2019.
So what? Sezer wasnt trying to begin the season, despite the club having already agreed to his replacement, and everyone and their dog knew it, including Sezer, and only started trying because the club released an official press statement?
Well before a ball was kicked in anger in 2019, I had no idea how our spine was going to look like come Round 26.

But by the end of that first game it was pretty clear we had a pretty handy find in the fullback, and Wighton looked good at 5/8.
By Round 5, it was burned into my heart that we will be moving forward for the foreseeable future with 1. CNK and 6. Wighton
That was absolutely not obvious before Round one.

Now the George Williams signing has only one option for a spot. And if you are at all talented in the game of musical chairs this is the part you start to get nervous.

Now that could just be a total coincidence that on his return in Round 12 Sezer played his BEST football for the club (by some distance), and was suddenly much more heavily involved.
I think there's more to it, and you're kidding yourself if you think there isn't.

Im perfectly fine. I just think you're absolute full of ****.
You dont like the guy. He's not going to be here, and instead of just being happy about that, you're out here implying the guy rolled into here, collected pay cheques and didnt bust his **** for the club
And that's both disingenuous and utter Bull and it's based on nothing.

You dont need to try tar him with that **** because the signing didnt work. I think that's **** Bull and ill call it out

Why are you so defensive about Aiden?
I wouldn't have to dig to far to find all sorts of your tantrums about other players over the years.

I don't, not like the guy. Yeah sure, I've cursed his name more than just a few times over the years. and I may have written a few letters to the club, but still.

Seriously, the game has been on the line multiple, multiple times over the years and Sezer has been absent.
I've given it a name. Your saying the signing just didn't work out.
Agree to disagree.

You'll have to search long and hard to find me accuse a player of collecting a pay cheque and not trying his best. I think i've levelled that charge at one person in the clubs history.

That's a fairly serious allegation to throw around at a professional athlete and i think you should have a little more than you own whims because you dont like him and the signing didnt work out.You can say the guy sucks, and that we should move on, or that he was never any good to begin with. That's all within the reasonable realms of your opinion, and ill go back and forth on you about that.

Glenn Buttriss and Josh McCrone were objectively dreadful footballers, who i never liked and panned regularly (and still do!) and i would never say they didnt try. They tried, and their best was found to be short of what we needed.

It's evidently clear that Aiden Sezer has absolutely tried his best to perform for this club. If his best wasnt good enough for you, that's fine.
But you dont get to say the guy hasnt tried to do his best unless you've got more than your own whim without me calling it **** Bull.
