To be quite honest, i've never really had any respect for him. All respect was lost when he left rugby league and started bagging the sport. Then he had the nerve to come back to league and be all pro-league and anti-union. As Brendan Cannon said, he is nothing more than a 'Muppet'.
However, i supported him during the Origin incident with Andrew Johns because racism is just uncalled for. The way he went about it though--just leaving without talking to Johns or telling his teammates-- was a stupid way to approach the situation and made matters worse.
Now this is very hypocritical of Tahu the douche bag. If any of this is true now (Tahu is denying it), then i hope this year was his last year in league.
