Drop Te'o

Discussion in 'State of Origin 2013' started by Nashy, May 30, 2013.

    Alright, he needs to be dropped right now, and a replacement needs to come in and take his spot. Surely this assault shit isn't helping the team prepare, and it must certainly be playing on his mind.

    Thoughts?

    Teo should step aside, dropping him might cause a bigger disruption but someone should have a quiet word and let him do it himself.

    He never should have been selected, which Ive said countless times.

    Yep agree that he should step aside. Probs won't as it might be considered by some as an admission of guilt.
     
  8. Agree. It was silly to select him in the first place. Too much on his mind, too much of a media circus surrounding him, too much of a distraction to the whole squad.

    He also won't step aside because IMO he is a selfish prick

    Stepping aside would be a sign of guilt, If he isn't guilty he should have the right to play in a game he was selected for. If the rest of the team get distracted than that's on them not Te'o, they are professional league players and should act as such.

  12. Shit reason. One of their "brothers" could be in serious trouble. It's a distraction, professional or not.

    The NRL integrity unit should have stood him down from all football until the matter is resolved. Just sack up and stand him down FFS.

    Out of interest, what has changed everyone (or at least most peoples minds on this?) not having a go or anything but a day or to ago any suggestion of he should be stood down was met with he is entitled to be assumed innocent etc. whats changed?
     
  15. She provided a statement, and police have re-opened the case.

  16. I find the timing of all of this very suspicious, and as I said previously, given the circumstances, I give absolutely no credence to the Lewis woman!

    Should Te'o have been picked? Probably not, if only to protect him and Qld from this distraction.

    Should he be dropped now? I'm not sure. I don't think it will make any difference to the team, as whatever damage has already been done. Besides, it's not like the issue is going to go away.
    I am also strongly against punishing someone who seems to be the victim of what appears to be a manipulative woman looking for a fast buck and a moment of fame.

    I could be wrong, in which case throw the book at him if proven guilty, but at this point nothing makes me believe he's in he same boat as a Bird, Inglis or that scumbag Lui.

    I tend to agree, my only reservation is Mal would be reluctant to drop him and he is to stupid or selfish to see how it might affect the team.

    Still, the Qld management have been around a while and I'm sure if they felt it was a problem they would have a word to the wise.
    At this stage even if he stood aside it wouldn't make any difference to media questions, they would just come at it from a different way by bombarding players with questions about Teo stepping aside etc.
