    Hello to all that can find this post. I don't want this posted anywhere more public since I'm just not that relevant to the forum any more. Which is good. But I do have to write something quick just to say that I'm retiring from the forum as a poster, and I wanted to thank everyone who has helped make the old Yellow Scarf into the internet sports juggernaut that it is today.

    So, cheers to the early guys who I dragged over here from the dark side: jonnosan, nicktheaussie, [USER=1504]PaarlBok[/USER] , [USER=1509]barbarian[/USER], [USER=1539]Lindommer[/USER], noddy (RugbyReg) and the key man for quality - [USER=1535]Lee Grant[/USER].

    Of course, [USER=1622]Gagger[/USER] and [USER=2]Moses[/USER] have hit this place like a tornado (and not the Ballymore kind) and helped fulfill all the ambitions I had for the place. It was the stuff that people like [USER=1653]Juan Cote[/USER], [USER=411]Lance Free[/USER] and [USER=1784]Scott Allen[/USER] were writing that convinced me to call up Gagger in his secret volcano lair and make an offer.

    A special thanks to [USER=1565]cyclopath[/USER] for being a better moderator than I ever was.

    If anyone still needs to consult my views on Robbie Deans or Richie McCaw, turn up at the Alex Hotel in Leura on a rugby night. Look for a fat bloke sitting with a tall bloke.

    In the end, I was the first person through the doors of the ARC and the bastards can't take that away from me!! [Tears up, puts down microphone, walks off stage.]

    "The King is retiring, long live the King".
    Any and all of us who love this place should give a virtual standing ovation to Scarfy, without whom it would not have happened. Sorry to not see you around from now, but we'll catch up at some stage for a real beer, nothing virtual about it.
    Thank you, Scarfy.

    Mate, I haven't been around here long but I have always liked your contributions here. You're one of the blokes that I would love to buy a beer for and have a yarn. First I'll have to find out where Leura is.

    Anyway, all the best. I had no idea how integral you are to this place being what it is, so for that - thanks!

    Sad to hear it mate, New Zealanders the internet over will be mourning the loss of a sparring partner. Enjoy your vast reams of future spare time, and if I find myself in Leura on a rugby night I'll be approaching every fat bloke I can find.

    Mate - sorry to see you hang up the key board, but rest assured your place in the G&GR Hall of Fame and pantheon of Australian internets is set.

    I'm standing and clapping. People are looking at me funny but I don't care.

    That beer is assured when we meet.

    All the best Scarfman. We'll all have to start up some arguments with Queenslanders and Kiwis in your honour.

    Can't you do a Sir Ritchie video post as a "go out with a bang" retirement post?

    You have it in you.

    It would be a good legacy to leave.

    Scarfy, all the very best to you and yours.

    Thanks for all you've done for the place. You helped create a space where I would (sadly?) get a great deal of personal fulfilment, during some tough times too.

    Enjoy your new life AG (After GAGR)
