General My Turn

Alot has been said and written about me over the past month and I want to clear up a few things before I leave. I am sorry to anyone who I may have offended during my time at the club but there was alot going on behind the scenes that people dont know about. I wanted to leave at the end of 2005 wtih Francis, Monty, Tevita and Feka. The club was going through alot of changes, front office and coaching staff, and you can choose to accept it or move on. I wanted to move on as I felt I needed a fresh start as I started feeling I would get complacent where I was. I expressed to the club how I was feeling and was told that if I stayed I would play 6 and that they would build the club around me. This was exactly the challenge I needed and so decided to give up a test jersey in pursuit of becoming an Integral part of the club. After 2 games I found myself back at 2nd row and was really dissapointed, on top of that I was told that I wasnt worth the money I was on. I gave up a test jumper for what..... then being told that I was overpaid?. The season went on and I wasn't enjoying my footy so I went back to the club and asked for a release, they denied me and started talking me up again, by that time my mind was made up. After awens luncheon i met with officials and was told that no matter how much I played up, they were not going to release me and that everytime I did they would just keep fining me and fining me and a Large suspended fine was put in place hoping to deter me from future mishaps. Angry and frustrated I had to get out and what was to follow was somthing I regret doing but had know choice. When your unhappy, even if it's a 9 to 5 job or playing footy.....YOur unhappy. There is alot more that happend behind the scenes but wont say as it may open up a can of worms and I could get inserious trouble........What the hell. I found out the club was going to brush me next year because I had asked for a release, how they did it to Francis, BATercard. Im off to england now and looking forward to a fresh start, I had several nrl club offers but needed to get away as I would be under as much scrutiny in Oz than back here. Thats what really happend and you people can make up your minds. I feel like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders I wish my brothers and club nothing but sucess next year.

i think it's real. this website got a lot of coverage while he was being persecuted.

if this is Sione then thanks uso, takes a lot of guts to apologize to the masses even when you didn't have to (leaving the country and all) and not leave on a bad note. you'll be the man at Quins, running amuk with Henz and Tommy.

cheers.

I really don't think it is sione at all.

good luck to him anyway. has heaps of talent and to see him waste it by drinking is not good.

I hope it isn't him, I just refuse to believe the real Sione would bother coming on here to spill his guts, if he uses the PC at all.

I rated the guy as a player and was disappointed to learn he was going, one of my faves. But regardless the behaviour wasn't cool...


If it is you Sione, nuff respect for the work you did pre 06. Come back when things sort themselves out.

Don't be so gullible. You really think a selfish SOB like Sioni would waste 5 minutes of his day on worthless nothings like us?

The man puts Sioni first second and third, us fans.....he never gave a toss about, you only have to look at the way he behaved and embarrasses us and the club for that.

Don't know if it is him or not but when you are in a job you don't enjoy you need to ride it out.

You didn't sign up to the Warriors for life.

There are A LOT of players at the Warriors and in every club in the NRL who don't have a first grade spot nailed down each week but they don't get upset and throw the toys out of the cot.

Either you produce the goods in your position and outplay your opposite and help the team win or else you get shuffled.

Anyway, if it is you good luck in England and respect your team mates, management and fans because they are all there to help you not get in your way. It's a team sport so be a team player not a self centred emotional brat.

Peace.

I totally agree with RS. Let`s hope it`s a one way ticket to the U.K. with no return... at least until Sione grows up and learns to act like a man, not a spoiled and self centered child.

Like I said at the end of my post, you guys ( and ladies ) can make up your minds. Since 2003 I have been looking at this site to see what the fans thought about me, people say to not take notice but I couldn't help it, especially posts that shot me down I would use to try and motivate myself to stick it to them. To say i am self centred and not team orientated....... I went to the club and asked for a pay cut to try and retain webby....I was met with a " thats nice of you" and that was that. I was the one who went out to try and make the aussies boys feel welcome by going out with them, playing poker with them and narrowing the gap between aussies and the poly boys outside of training times even though I stayed on the other side of the city to them. Some of you people have no Idea what goes on behind the scenes and are quick to judge by merely reading or making up your own stuff. I will always support my friends in the club ( notice how I didnt say former teamates) because they are truly a special bunch of guys. I thank you for those who have supported me and wish you guys all the best, as for those who still insist I am "a bad egg", what more can I say but thanks for your honest opinions. Just like that ad " KNOW ME BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME ". Last post.

UK Bound/Why Hate/Sione/JohnBoy,

Knowing before judging is a fine concept... but impossible. Everyone, including you, makes judgements every day based on things they have limited information on. Situations, work-mates, politicians, people you want to hang with, all of it. In the end, what people are exposed to - right or wrong - helps form their perceptions, just as yours have been by your limited exposure to the fanbase behind the scenes. You are as guilty as anyone else as a result. You are a professional football player, and part of that is dealing with the exposure and scrutiny. You can have a case on your personal life, but when in a public forum, comment in in favour or against is to be expected. I'd encourage you to try a little more rational thought however, as what happens to you is only part of a problem, how you react is the bigger element. That's something you need to grasp. Regardless of the good work you have said you have done for the club - which I believe - those reactions have done the damage.

You seem an idealist. I hope you reach these ideals, and I agree with you that leaving the Warriors is in your best interests... and certainly the Warriors. You have supreme talent, which no-one has ever denied, but it can't always be someone else's fault can it?

See you.

I second polar bob's comments.

Good luck with the Quins, Sione. I hope it works out well for you in England, and that you are able to put some of those problems of late behind you.

Bon voyage.
