Sucked in you dirty grub.
I'm not Lefty as the 'media' will be calling for the grub to be made an Immortal. A premiership and salary cap cheat and rorter, treatment of Alex McKinnon's injury, directing refereeing decisions make him fit for the title 'Immortal Grub' only.

Cameron Smith will sit out this week's clash with Manly after pleading guilty to a dangerous contact charge over his tackle on Kevin Proctor on Saturday night.
The Storm skipper was handed a grade-two dangerous contact charge by the NRL match review committee on Sunday for the incident in Melbourne's comeback win over Gold Coast at Suncorp Stadium.
If he challenged the charge at the judiciary he risked a two-match ban.
Smith was one of seven players charged for incidents from the three Saturday matches.
Three other Storm players are in strife - Cameron Munster and Josh Addo-Carr will escape suspensions after early guilty pleas for their dangerous contact charges but prop Sam Kasiano has received a one-game ban for the same charge.
Sydney Roosters prop Dylan Napa pleaded guilty to a dangerous contact charge and a careless high tackle and received a $1,100 fine and 75 carryover points.
Warriors duo Bunty Afoa and Jazz Tevaga also avoided suspensions with guilty pleas after receiving dangerous contact charges.
Remorseful Scott, Korosai charged as Walker ruled out 6 weeks with fractured eye socket

Melbourne centre Curtis Scott has apologised for punching Dylan Walker in the head during Saturday night's spiteful clash with the Manly star facing six weeks on the sidelines after scans revealed he suffered a fractured cheekbone.
The NRL match review committee on Sunday charged Scott with a grade-three striking charge for hitting Walker. He will miss two matches if he submits an early guilty plea but could miss three games if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.
Scott has received a 28-point discount (one point for each minute he was sent off), otherwise he would have been facing a maximum of four games on the sidelines.
Manly hooker Apisai Koroisau was handed a grade-one striking charge which would result in a one-match ban with an early guilty plea or a maximum of two games.
Walker was not charged for his part in the brawl.
The Storm released a statement via Twitter in which the young centre expressed remorse for his controversial actions which led to referee Henry Perenara sending him off.
"While it doesn't change what happened last night I would like to deeply apologise to my team, Manly and NRL fans for my actions. Not how I want to represent myself, my team, or the game," he said.
The Sea Eagles will have to endure more games without one of their stars after it was confirmed on Sunday that Walker has a fractured eye socket as a result of the brawl in Saturday night's fiery 24-4 win over Melbourne at AAMI Park.
Walker, who missed the opening month of the Telstra Premiership season following multiple operations on a shoulder and broken ankle, will now miss another four to six weeks out with his left eye socket.
Manly confirmed the extent of his injury on Sunday but did not say whether the 23-year-old would need surgery.
"Scans last night confirmed a sub-orbital fracture to his eye as a result of being punched by Curtis Scott, who was sent off for the incident," the Sea Eagles said.
Walker took a direct hit on his left cheek from the Storm centre, and Perenara had no hesitation in marching Scott from the field - the first NRL send-off since David Shillington in 2015.
Walker was also sin-binned over the incident, which was conducted in tandem with an HIA assessment for the hit to his head.
The former NSW State of Origin representative published a photo on Instagram after the game of his injury with the words "Talk **** get hit Well done sir".
He was one of three Manly players sent to the sheds to cool their heels for 10 minutes, alongside hooker Api Koroisau and lock Jake Trbojevic.
The NRL match review committee will be studying the 52nd-minute scuffle that involved up to a dozen players.
Storm prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona was also charged by the match review committee but will only incur a fine of $1100-1500 for his careless high tackle on Jake Trbojevic.
Have noticed Jake T getting a bit mouthy with refs etc of late, needs to back off a bit, good player though
Taking lessons from Cam Smith maybe Frank?
Manly are in love with Hodko after Saturday night's game.
About time there was a bit of biff brought back.
