Tearful. Salty tears.
Have you genuinely never heard that expression before?

Oh yes that part of your brain that enabled us to get down with the kids suddenly disappears at 40... NOT!!

I heard it a couple of times in the context of computer gamers who are losing but didn't really get what it meant. Rubbing salt in the wound or throwing a tantrum or something. So it's just crying? Okay.

Can't see how Coppers post qualifies as that though. More like "stick it up your ass" to Brad Thorn.

It's fairly prevalent in online vernacular with all the cool kids. Probably why you'd associate it with gamer tantrums.

As always, Urban Dictionary is very helpful:
The act of being upset, angry, or bitter as result of being made fun of or embarrassed. Also a characteristic of a person who feels out of place or is feeling attacked
Angry, agitated, annoyed, upset.[/list]


Mind you, I do like these two definitions:
Somebody who contains large quantities of sodium chloride,thus causing them to be upset.
Tthe act of being a salted pretzel.

BBT just needs to point at his trophy cabinet. His CV would look like the Encyclopedia Brittanica, Fraids woul look like a packet of cigarette papers.

Went on to his Twitter page and Rob Penney asked Quade or Khoder his manager to PM. Maybe Quade is looking at a stint in Japan. I hope he does it. Why waste your time in Australia when you know Cheika still won't select you? Along with the governing body run by a bunch of imbiciles.

Saltiness is usually more about being bitter than tearful.

He seems a bit of a dick to me tbh.

Although his credentials a rugby man and a hard one at that are beyond question. There's more to a person than that.

My respect for Thorn has diminished due to the way he treated Quade. No respect. It seems he brought personal beef during the playing days.

Nah, he sees Fraid as a pea heart on defence and flaky as hell. BBT wants to develop a team who will do the basics consistently well. Plus I don't think he wanted a prima donna screwing with the team culture he wanted to develop with his young team.

I doubt BBT thought Fraid was worth worrying about during their playing days, when Fraid spent his time hiding from contact. He didn't do anything to earn any respect back then, in fact quite the opposite. He behaved like a tool, especially his attempts to maim St Richie.

Thorn forgets that whilst he maybe a great All Black, Quade is a great of the Reds. He's coaching the Reds, shouldve treated him with respect.

Sounds like you've met him personally. I've only ever heard nothing but praise for the guy from fellow players, opposition and both league and union coaches, but have never met him personally.

I could throw Fitzy in the same bracket I guess but i met him and he was a cock, so who knows.

But given Quade's track record I'd hardly accept his character judgement of anyone.

Reports from people in closer circles to the playing group indicate he's slowly bringing happy clappy jesus praising into the fold.

It's pissing a few players off, apparently.

I've met BBT a few times but this was back before he found the Jeebus. He seemed nice, if not always drunk. I have no doubt he's trying to instill a culture at the Reds, I just hope it's not a "take a knee and praise the lord" one.

Scarlets need a #10 for a few months. Patchell has potentially serious HIA issues, Dinky has a bad hip and O'Brien has done a knee ligament. He would suit our style of play for sure.

He watched the guy for a season as assistant coach, watched him ignore the game plan, not put in and decided they were better off without him.

Been happening for a long time, a relo of mine worked at the Reds during the McKenzie era and stated to me the tail (QC) wagged the dog there. Obviously the buck stops with Ewen who i was told was good at disciplining the group as a whole but not one on one.

He's 'avin a giggle mate.

There's a long running theme on /r/rugbyunion that, even if you hate Pocock, he's dreamy (nothing gay etc) and how it purely is wholesome having a jerk off session watching his career highlights.

Same with Nigel...who loves the ABs. Hence the "birth certificate"

You don't need to know someone personally for them to "seem like a bit of a dick". He's a bible-thumping teetotaller who waltzed into the Reds setup on a wave of hype and threw out a guy who has over a hundred caps in that jersey, and was easily still good enough to be considered for International duties, for what seems to be some petty personal issues and has basically done nothing else worthy of mention for the club. I don't particularly like Quade's approach to rugby, or his off-field antics, but a true mentor would take the guy under his wing, not kick him in the arse.

Now I don't know either of them, or what happened behind the scenes. That's why I use the word seems. From what I can see, he seems like a bit of a dick to me. I might be wrong.

I love how predictable Kiwi preciousness is. Believe it or not, there's probably more than a few "legends" who have donned the black jersey, who are in fact, total assholes. Think about that. Regardless of what you think of Quade. Thorn doesn't seem like a total asshole. He just seems like a bit of dick in my personal opinion, and I might be wrong. That's not such an outrageous thing to say, take a few deep breaths.

Like I said, if he's a "toxic douchebag", then a real leader and coach would mentor him and straighten him out. As far as I'm aware, Thorn didn't even try. Just enacted some petty personal grievance.

You don't try to mentor and straighten out gangrene. You cut off/out the affected tissue and move on.
