    Most of the comments were more around the fact that he was picked before being ready. That's not the players fault
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    The comments from bevo are very telling. Attentive to detail, listens to instructions. Coaches love that.

    Great back story for the kid

    He’s looking a lot more comfortable. I had my doubts, but he really has improved as he’s grown in confidence.

    He had some good moments today, and a few ordinary ones particularly by foot. I thought he scored a par for the day which is good for his trend.

    Although some comments that I inadvertently and unfortunately come across, particularly on the Facebook WB forum, are simply bloody cruel and distasteful, and too often reads as a sad form of pack bullying.

    It's gone feral. People aren't coping, sure, but when does it become carte blanch for people who aren't coping to be complete arseholes to everyone?

    That's the big issue in all this. We're all doing it tough, does that have to mean that we revert to being wankers? Shouldn't it mean we sympathise/ empathise a bit?

    I know Ryan has tried to be nice with some of his quotes, but no, there isn't an excuse for being a *!*!*!*!ing dickhead towards others just because things are shit for you. That's what makes us different from monkeys etc.

    I thought he was solid yesterday and did some nice things. That's all we need from him. This week is going to be a far bigger test.

    It's always been there and will get worse, check out NBA players social media accounts, but not being able to go to a game probably plays a factor. Most will vent on the day if need to and move on, OK it's not much better hearing it on gameday either, I do think it is why it has seemed to go up a notch.

    If anyone sees something out of line directed to Gardner on social media, I encourage you all to defend his honor and include the hashtag #ProtectOurPlumz
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I've seen Ryan Fitzgerald gets confused with Ryan Fitzpatrick (Miami Dolphins quarterback) by angry NFL fans on Twitter and plays along with them.

    Still feels like he trails in on direct opponent when they push up at the ball. Reads it ok and positions well when setting up behind the ball but when it gets into a 1 vs 1 defensive mode he struggles to go with guys on the lead.

    Every defender struggles with a player on the lead.

    I've seen Ryan Fitzgerald with his mates close up in the crowd at the SCG.
