Controversial player this one.

I’m really 50/50 on this right now.

Having read what this guy did. The ethics and values in me says no way.

But the hunger for us to win ,says we need him, so bite the bullet and sign him up?!!!!

A lot to learn in life, but it’s the lack of remorse that really bothers me.

He clearly isn’t in a long term relationship or has kids or knows much about family values.

Those of you with young family will know what I mean. They are your world and treasure. To have someone break into your house at night, in rage and no doubt threatening death, in front of your young child and wife is everyone’s worst nightmare.

How would Warrior players with young kids feel about having someone in their squad with that history. And again, a lack of remorse for the victim. I would very bothered by it.

When you're really sorry, you stop doing what you're doing.

Matt has been sober for a period of time now. It's one of the biggest things he will ever do, and keep on doing in his life. A program showed him now spending some of his time doing volunteer work with the disadvantaged.

The first thing people think of when Matt Lodge is mentioned will always be that night. But the changes he's made mean he's becoming someone else.

It's a YES from me.

thats not really a big sacrifice if we’re being honest

I would be more impressed if he became a priest or castrated himself, those are real sacrifices.

He did a shit thing, got off lightly- but if you made a stand against him you’d have to make the same stand against numerous others.
He’s a player we probably normally wouldn’t get so might as well use our contacts

The flip side, quality player and can channel that energy and rage into his game makes him a weapon.

8. Addin Fonua-Blake
9. Jazzy ( fuck it, that’s your new specialised job!)
10. Lodge
11. Harris
12. Ben Murdoch-Masila
13. Katoa (assuming he kick out of his slump)

14. LAM
15. Pene / Jamayne Tounua-Brown
16. Evans / Bunty
17. Sironen / Murchie

Now that forward pack, I would be very very happy with.
Fuck my morals.

We need lodge to help lead this useless bunch.

s down the track after

Incident or not I think he is massively overrated and not sure what he will add to the squad. Money is better spent elsewhere.

I don't believe you understand alcoholism at all.

If alcoholism is no different to substance abuse or addiction, then it’s not a sacrifice you are making but an achievement on improving your quality of life.

To me, sacrifice is giving up something that is important and dear to you. Or giving up pleasure and luxury for something less in life.

I used to smoke back in the day. Nothing like a good ciggy to calm the nerves. Had to give that up when I met my wife. I guess that’s a sacrifice, but hardly anything to justify what I got in return.

So please educate me on what it is about alcoholism that makes it a sacrifice.
So you are saying achievements come without sacrifice. Interesting concept.

Anyway it's late and you have a different opinion. That's OK.
You feel that he needs to atone for his past. I'm happy to have a sober Matt for dinner. Although you might consider my cooking a suitable punishment.
One thing we both agree on is today's game wasn't a good performance and something needs to change.

mate, I’ve been stupidly moody today and the Warriors performance hasn’t helped.

Time for bed and hopefully a different perspective tomorrow.
