Big Daft Lads - An Introduction
Posted by southstander on January 21 2011 - 08:59:08

by McLaren_Field

In the first of what will be an irregular feature on we introduce you to McLaren_Fields 'Big Daft Lads'.

You don't tend to play rugby league as a career step to becoming a doctor, solicitor or booker prize winning author. Our players pull on the jersey because they can hold a ball, take a tackle and cross the whitewash.

This leads to our game being full of 'Big Daft Lads' and undoubtedly this season will unearth more who leap across the line separating common sense and stipidity, almost as though it doesn't exist.

Big Daft Lads

Def : Those who were only good at sports at school

It takes a certain type of person to enter a field of play and spend the next 80 minutes running at high speed into other people who are all intent on stopping you from running any further.

It takes a certain type of person to enter a field of play in the full knowledge that in 80 minutes time they are likely to be battered, bloody and bruised and possibly broken in several places having spent that time running at high speed into other people who were all intent on stopping you from running any further.

It takes a certain type of person to gleefully repeat this process week after week after week, year in year out for what most would consider to be only a modest stipend in compensation for a future spent limping on joints that have already reached the end of their useful life while only in their third decade, a future in which passers-by in the street will look at their broken face with sympathy or where the first cold morning of the winter will cause previously healed bones to ache and seize.

It takes a big daft lad.

We all remember the big daft lads in school, they were the ones who sat at the back of the class, the ones who guffawed a bit too loud when told a joke, the ones who didnít care when noses ran all down their chin in cold weather because they mainly breathed through their mouths, the ones who never did any homework or indeed any work at all nor cared much about it, these were the lads who were good at sport, the lads for whom nothing else in life mattered except that they score the winning goal, the winning try, the winning run, no-one else really cared but it was life and death to the big daft lads.

And so no-one is surprised when the big daft lads at school suddenly turn up on a football, rugby or cricket pitch as their day job, after all sport was all they could do.

Unfortunately having elevated the big daft lads to a status of local hero we somehow lose sight of the fact that they are still, at heart, big daft lads with fluff for brains and very little use for that fluff too.

So when a big daft lad does something big and daft, like for example simulating a sexual act on a dog then a big daft lad wouldnít just stop there, oh no, a big daft lad didnít get to be a big daft lad just by giving a dog a sexual favour, a proper big daft lad worth his salt would have to photograph the deed and let his mates post them on an internet site, and just to prove how big and daft he was the big daft lad would then have to tell everyone where the photos were hosted - that would be top drawer big daft lad behaviour that would.

Of course that would never happen and I use it purely as an example, a ridiculous example yes but you get the idea now?
