From The Age
By contrast, after Saturday’s embarrassment, Connolly said Jesus Christ himself would have struggled to fire in the Demons forward line.“I have been challenged on that. I said Jesus Christ wouldn’t have kicked any goals at centre half-forward because we would have moved him into the back line,” Connolly said on Monday.“He still would have had a fantastic game, I’m sure.”— Chris Connolly, Melbourne Football Manager
You just don’t get classic comments like this one over here in the British press. I was on the floor in stitches.Personally, I think if Jesus Christ was a footballer, I doubt he would of been a forward. He doesn’t strike me as a flashy type of player, I mean can you imagine Jesus in Warwick Capper shorts? No, there’s already been one God playing AFL (Garry Ablett Sr.) at Full Forward, Buddha (Garry Hocking) had a run as a mid-fielder, so I think Jesus would have to play as a full-back, maybe a Centre Half Back, it depends how tall he is.
