There is an ongoing thread on the rugby forum talking mentioning Ronan O Gara's analysis and how he uses 'insider' terms that a layperson wouldn't be familiar with it (-1 and -2 defender was the quote) and I wouldn't be surprised if first receiver actually is a rugby term
I am actually talking of what was actually on commentery on rugby match, first receiver (ball passed from fly-half to first receiver)
I cannot remember the context of "rookie" comment but it was All Ireland final Dublin/Mayo i think but not sure, i just watch big games.
I am familar with term wide-receiver but did not hear it here in relation to our daily sport...
For me all of the Ronan terms are perfectly understand and my point i would rather fallow Ronan than what i heard recently.
I am very much in the minority here so i will adapt pretty easy or switch off...
