The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result –

When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and the weak of character fall to pieces. Mitchell Pearce and Blake Ferguson always fall to pieces in big games, season after season, year after year.

You would have thought that the used car salesman and Robbie and Gai Waterhouse’s son in law who run the Rooster might have learned a few lessons from NSW’s lonely 2014 Origin Series win wouldn’t you?

No Mitchell Pearce, no Blake Ferguson, finally the cockroaches win a series. Pearce and Ferguson return, and they never win one again. You don’t have to be Einstein to work out the equation do you?

Ecclesiastes, the Old Testament book said to be written by King Solomon back in about 400 BC,  had the whole game of footy sussed. It’s a shame that kids who go to school south of the Tweed don’t learn to read, otherwise things might be very different indeed, although then again, maybe not.

After all, at the end of the day King Solomon is Blake Ferguson’s uncle isn’t he?


So I turned to consider wisdom, madness and folly; for what will the man do who will come after the king except what has already been done? – 2:12

Blake Ferguson

Origin games – 7

Series wins – zero.

Spits on fans. Indecently assaults women.

That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. – 1:9

Mitchell Pearce

Origin games – 17.

Series wins – zero.

Pisses on himself. Roots dogs.

Whatever exists has already been named, and it is known what man is; for he cannot dispute with him who is stronger than he is. – 6:10
