Tbf I think he meant a great player for us rather than in a global sense.

I did indeed - I forgot that RLfans has a strict hierarchy of acceptable words to describe players, from "squad player," right up to "legend."

I used the word great in a very specific sense - in that he's been great for *us.*

If you forgot that’s fine!

I do think the word ‘great’ gets thrown about too much. He’s done well for us, better than his first stint in my opinion, and I do agree he comes across as a model pro.

I don't disagree - we live in a world where the bar is set very low, and hyperbole has become the norm; so maybe we could agree on here that if we're using a word in reference to the acceptable usage list, we capitalise - ie Grix isn't Great, but he is great?

I think that’s a fair compromise! I just hope everyone sticks to or we’ll have posters calling Chris Annakin a Legend!

Well I delivered a late night McDonalds to my gf and her pals the other night, and was labelled a 'legend' - so the currency of that word has significantly reduced; although to be fair, I don't know if they were capitalising or not, since the communication was purely verbal - and drunk.

I wish people wouldn't do this on threads when a player leaves, he has put his body on the line and we have had good service from him overall, he should be allowed a goodbye thread without the digs, he has had plenty of critics on here for his errors but seriously guys move on, Thanks for your efforts Scott and good luck in the future.

I was just about to say the same.

In season by all means comment however you like but when someone is leaving and people want to wish him well, just wish him well or don't.
I personally don't feel the need to make sure everyone knows I didn't like him.

But for Grix I enjoyed watching him play, I felt he brought something good to the team, from my view he looks like a professional who would be good as a mentor and he clearly loves his family and mates.
I wish him good luck for the future
