Generally playing well in general - generally speaking
he's no General though but has a jink and pass you won't find in the general store

More consistent than Hynes IMO though kicks in general play about as good as Nicho's goal conversions....

Very good game against Warriors, some players are still poor against poor teams that's when you have a really big problem

When playing top 8 teams the whole team is going to have more of a challenge to play well so hard to simply say Mozza ain't as good against top 8 teams when the forwards, backs, spine ect is probs struggling

You could say that nearly every player is 'worse' or inferior against top 8 sides and 'better' against bottom 8 sides (No burgess not asking for a chart) - speaking in general terms

Unless you are Parra that is, then you are at your worst against the worst teams :D

Disagree - the good players play well against good teams. Hynes does this at times, plenty of good players do this all the time.

Moylan played good but it isn’t a stretch to say he’s a flat track bully

What exactly would I graph? Instances of forum members bitching about our halves mapped against the opposition’s ladder position?

Given our **** record against top 8 teams in the last few years, I think it is fairly certain that the whinge-level is higher in those games regardless of the players’ actual performance.

If you are doing a spreadsheet on our forum bitching, make sure you use Excel 2007 or later as it contains >1mil rows

The older versions only had about 64k rows so you will run out of space!

Bitching about halves graphs as extremely high when we play top 8 teams and only very very high against bottom 8 teams, data doesn't seem statistically relevant

Yea and I wouldn't trust compatibility mode - it converts all the whinges to text

The amount of times Gards used “Generally, General or Generally general”.

I'm worried we'll re-sign this guy for two more years and miss out on a long-term gun 6.

But he is so valuable right now.

Fitz pretty much said Moylan will be around next year without actually saying Moylan will be around next year in tonights presser.

Moylan's impact on the game reminds me a bit of Freddy Fittler. Doesn't appear to be doing a hell of a lot in the game but is suddenly there to ice an important play when it matters.

I was critical of Moylan being in the side early this season but I have to admit he has had a very good season to date (hopefully I haven’t just put the mocker on him).
Creates and is a bit more dangerous than Nico when we are close to the line.
Has been a good foil for Nico
