I like this kid more every time I hear from him. He comes across as dedicated, professional and without an ego. To draw inspiration from Teddy is not something you expect from somebody so young. A president and commander of the Rough Riders in the Spanish- American war, somebody who came from a silver spoon family so to speak but was no stranger to adversity. As he overcame illness as a child through a physical and dedicated lifestyle. He Idolized the civil war commanders and jumped at his opportunity to see combat in Cuba.

Most kids these days would have something said by an idiot like Justin Beiber or Snoop dog tattooed on their body but Carrigan has a quote from the equivalent of Churchill or Joseph Joffre. Leaders among leaders.

It's good he can go deeper than skin deep into history. I'll leave my own dislike for Theodore Roosevelt aside. When all is said and done he led an amazing life even if he was essentially a war monger.

O
How was T. Roosevelt a war monger??

Whilst I wouldn't want to take this thread to another topic, he was a chief proponent of the Spanish American war that lead to the annexation of Cuba (supposedly on humanitarian grounds for the Cuban people's liberty), which led to the country becoming a holdout for corrupt American businessmen and led to the rise of Castro. As a result of the war, the Americans also claimed the Philippines from Spain that had gallantly fought and succeeded in freeing itself from colonial rule from only to be put through a bloody war with the US to crush their independence that resulted in the use of torture and the deaths of some 600,000 Filipinos.
It was criticized by Mark Twain among others as counter to American ideals of liberty.
Whilst I can't deny his many accomplishments and admire his willingness to push progressive ideas, if the Spanish American war was fought today it's proponents would be war criminals.
You can argue the Americans were better colonial masters than the Spanish and I wouldn't disagree but the war to achieve it cannot be justified by that.

Another great clue to the Croft signing being a master stroke.

The storm's huge score here can only go down after snaring their halfback.

If eels were to top score, and they finished the year losing just one round later after we did, we did extremely well getting there WITHOUT having this in our arsenal.

2020 is something to get excited for

Another article out today saying that Arthars is firming as a contender for fullback. Apparently putting pressure on Isaako. I couldn't read the article due to a pay wall.

It makes sense, Siebs recruited Arthurs for a reason.
I think he'd go well there. I wish the backline wasn't jammed up with players like Boyd and Bird so that he could get a spot in the centres or on the wing. Looks like there's no room though.
