First up, I think Nic looks like he will be a great player, and more importantly, a decent young man.
But the hysteria by the West Australian media over him proves the hypothesis that they are all ‘Eaglecentric’.
The Sunday Times lead sports story was how Nic showed courage and leadership when all looked lost as an undermanned and young Essendon side pressed against the home side Eagles.
I almost sprayed my flat white over the back page of ‘The West’ today when I read their assertion that Nic was now a likely Brownlow contender, on the back of one poor punters misguided bet.
I am waiting for Barra’s next instalment on 6pr tonight…can’t wait!
Lets hope he does not believe all the press about himself and suffer under the weight and rock star adulation the WA Press serve up on Eagles players in this state.
