Matt Orford wants to go back to Australia. Parramatta is interested.

104 posts in this topic

Its as accurate as an articlye from over 6 weeks ago saying he's in for the long haul.

Questions include -

Why is he in Australia recovering?

A contract is easily negotiable - plus it would get him off Bradford's wage bill rather than playing 12/30 odd games.

What makes the T&A (rofl) any more reputable than the SMH or Fox?

In this case, the fact that their piece actually includes an interview and quotes from the man himself, something i have so far failed to see in any of the Australian articles. Still, when has anything factual ever got in the way of your laughable, irony free musings eh?

And you still get to see the dross when people quote them, and the threads still get derailed, and the trollthreads still get started, whether or not you have the culprit/s on "ignore". So its as you were John, wish it was otherwise (

Ah well, tried me best.

Coincedentally, I wonder how long it will be before Webby comes on here wittering about putting people on ignore. Blah, blah, blah. Yawn. He should stick to writing the unfunny Red Hall Diaries. He isn't a good Webmaster anymore...

:lol: :lol: ;) Only kidding John!

Did someone say something...?

Attention-seeking trolls like "Paris SurTout" and NE are the principal reason I rarely post on here. I know numerous other people who say the same. If John Drake could come up with some algorithm that examines posts and identifies the characteristics of an attention-seeking troll, and then deletes them - ideally with the author as well - I bet the traffic on the site would increase significantly.

Not just a problem here, of course.

Maybe a bazooka would be an alternative?

You bet that traffic would increase more than the 80 posted contributions and 1825 viewings of this thread?

That would constitute a massive increase in site traffic ---of the kind that we have seen in rare cases, such as on my Wigan-Melbourne thread, where so far there have been 139 postings and 5,000 viewings!. :lol::lol::lol:

But thanks for posting on my threads, mate. You have contributed to the massive traffic increase on the site, and we are all delighted, in some cases even amused, to read whatever it is that you try to write.

Just because you don't agree with someones opinions, doesn't automatically make it rubbish.

Its a DISCUSSION forum. If no-one disgreed, it'd be a pretty boring place, no?

What utter BS.

This thread isn't being derailed.

The liklihood of Orford jumping ship from HMS Odslum is high, let face it.

A tatty article in the T&A doesnt make it any less likely.

:D The slightly misdirected and unfunny inference being it was Webby...

Anyhoo, I have no-one on ignore, nor would I want to, I have to see this place in all it's hideous glory.

But there's nothing in any of the articles that equally back your opinion of events.

He may well leave, and to be honest I'd probably welcome it, but just because you want to believe something doesn't make it true.

There's an 'outdated' article with quotes from the man in question to support the "he's staying" argument, but there's no quotes from Orford saying he wants to leave, caution? Maybe. Or sensationalist/lazy journalism? Equally likely.

I have not been able to make contact with my friends in Australia yet. But I will soon.

Matt Orford was filmed sitting in the crowd at Bluetongue Stadium in Gosford last weekend, when Manly played Wests Tigers. He was sitting next to a Manly player who has been charged with sexual assault and behind several Manly reserve players. He seemed at ease, though for all I know he could have been pining for Bradford.

"man sits with mates watching game of Rugby" shock...

He may well be on his way to Australia but the "proof" that he is is tenious at best.. he spent a good while at manly, he has freinds there, he is spending time with his mates while recovering from an op hardly enough to convict him of wanting to leave to go to any aussie club.

As i say he may well do, he may well go in the winter but none of this makes any difference and none of it is proof in anyway shape or form and none of it will be convincing him one way or the other.. its not like he doesnt know what its like to live in aus or what te clubs are like FFS!

4 days and no word from your friends? me thinks the "made up" guess of who the friends are may be accurate.

I saw Orford sat with McNamara at Wakefield after his injury but before he left to return home for surgery. He was also sat behind a number of the Bradford reserve players and other injured first teamers - he seemed at ease, talking to others, celebrating our scores but for all i know, he was pining for Manly.............

If you're as dull and self-obsessed on the phone as you are on here, then I imagine they are screening your calls.

Both Orford himself and the chairman of the Bulls indicated that he would be back for next season. Apart from some unconfirmed Aussie press reports there is no confirmation of any change. I can't see that continual denials of Orford leaving are needed, because some press reporter in Australia wants to make up a story. Unless there is a statement by either Orford or the Bulls, I see it as a complete waste of time to report these Aussie press stories.

Do me a favour and read what I said before trying to have fun at my expense? Clue: I said "like".

On RL fans there are trolls a-plenty. But because most of the forums are club-specific, the club forum mods tend to deal with the trolls when they get out of hand. Some like Bulls are very laiisez-faire. Others like Hudds and Wakey can make Mussolini look left-wing... ;) And because they are club forums, the fans tend to outnumber the trolls big-time. Its much harder on here because they are general forums, and the mods are admirably laissez-faire - something the
