Thumbs down Motor-mouth Mundine puts hand up

from The Daily Telegraph

AUSTRALIA'S most outspoken sportsman Anthony Mundine has offered to make a comeback to rugby league with battling St George Illawarra.

And he says he is prepared to play for nothing.
On his official website, Mundine writes: "I'm letting you all know right now that if the call came out from the club then I would come back.

"Money isn't the motivating factor behind this, I would play for free.

"The Dragons have lost a lot of experience in the past year and I would love the opportunity to lead these young guys and be an inspiration to them."

Mundine said he would be prepared to play anywhere. "My supreme athletic talent means that it wouldn't matter where I played.

"Right now we need some leadership and that is what I can bring. The big games is what I'm all about.

"You saw that in '96 and '99. The passion from the Saints fans and especially from the Dragon Army are the reasons that makes playing for St George such a special thing.

"The fans deserve the best and in The Man, that is what they would get.

"I am a supreme athlete who would love nothing more than to wear that Red Vee with pride once again."

It is understood Mundine had informal chats with coach Andrew Farrar when he turned up at a recent training session.

Saints CEO Peter Doust last night said: "I'm pleased to hear a person like Anthony, who is a local junior, is keen to help the club.

"But we're really not sure how feasible it would be.

"He is now in boxing and has all these fights planned. He would also be a different weight to what he was when he left rugby league.

"If he wants to come and talk, I'd listen."

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

*AM starts laughing so hard he falls off the chair*

*gets off the floor*


i gave The Man a chance to prove himself before making a judgement, but it turns out that he's an absolute cretin.

Not a fan of the mouth! However he is a talented sportsman and I would love to see him back in the Dragons colours. No matter what he acts and talks like when he played league the dragons where an exciting team to watch. I think it would be a good boost for league - add some more spice to the games and a regular nightime news spot for the game and the mouth!!!

I heard today that St George won't have anything to do with him.

The guy's an idiot and might actually get somewhere if he kept his mouth shut.

He lost a fight, so is retiring from boxing - is that right? (not sure if I followed the news story right) - sounds very strange :crazy1:

Being a champion is as much about how you lose as how you win.

My personal opinion...

I hope he gets the shyte smacked clean out of him. Great athlete no doubt. But have you ever seen a more arrogant pompous prick in your life?
