i think tricky has some insight to youth at risk because he grew up in such an environment; this coverage is too short, tricky doenst explain it further; new ideas are necessary if the usual dont work; music, sports, stay in school, makes sense to work with youths that deal with gangs, violence, social problems...

i know patrick manuel and dog johnson personally when i first met dog i never would have thought he was a mobster,they both have good jobs and are good people,patrick is my kids uncle and is very family oriantated,they are positive role models even thou they have earnned their patches,i believe they have tricky on boared for positive reasons,its true what patrick says about working and supporting their families because thats all ive known both of them to do,thats on a personal level.

Tricky's idea is worth considering. As they can't keep NZ boys away from the mobster, they better change mongrel's rules so the boys don't have to do the same the actual members used to do, in order to be accepted into the mob.

What was Tricky smoking before he decided this. The Mongrel Mob and any afilliates are nothing but a criminal gang. They already have people infiltrating Government departments so if they need to get information about people who stand up to them, they can get it. His ideas are good but cant he do it without a patch that symbolises the whole thing he is trying to prevent.....How did he get in this country in the first place....what an idiot. I hope the cops give him a ticket for driving around in a car with no seat belt as well. he is an idiot

The interview would have been a more rounded if Tricky and the Mongrel Mob Mobsters had have been afforded the opportunity to describe their whole vision. Furthermore, Tricky's personal quest to become affiliated to the Mongrel Mob Mobsters would have been better represented if the reporter actually outlined Tricky's passion to work alongside 'at risk youth'. Youth programmes which include the sport of boxing are just one of many tools that Tricky makes freely available for those who wish to make a positive change
