    Forsey runs offside 20 times a game and never passes to his teammates, not to mention everyone hates to play with him. Yes, I guess he did have a great season!! Give your head a shake

    My hat is off to Tyler Forsey. He has played very well for Fieldians. If he can help develop some of their younger players into becoming consistent threats, they will be a legitimate contender in a few years’ time. Assuming Mount Pearl or Holy Cross don’t pillage the roster first.

      I agree Forsey was outstanding this season. Too bad he hasn't received respect from some circles. I would like to see a more balanced league as well. Sadly, the Jubilee is even worse.
