Thanks for the welcome. That is true, but as he said so himself against the Titans recently; There'll never be water under the bridge and that's ok with him. But for the media to criticise a man for being articulate and well-spoken is just juvenile and doesn't help Rugby League shake the label of being a thug sport. Personally, give me an articulate and well thought out response any day as opposed to the usual grunting 'credit to the boys'. As for the rumours he does not get along with players, I think it comes from the fact he is a dominant half and as such did not work well chemistry wise with JT who wanted a support player, thus recommending his teammate Michael Morgan. If that is the case, then by all means keep DCE on his toes churning out good performances as he waits for the lead playmaking role to become available.Welcome mate! I don't think you can really blame the media for the perception of DCE, you can blame DCE.
