You know it kills me to march in here like Major Buzzkill and start some military-grade whinging, but… Actually, who am I kidding. I’m a follower of rugby league in Australia, and it’s my darn right to be completely dark on the game at all times. Having the sh*ts about footy is in my DNA. […]

From Jamisontown to St Marys and everywhere in between, delusions were soaring for a top-four finish for the mighty Panthers coming in to 2014. Even despite yearly anti-climaxes and wrenched-guts since 2003 due to poor performances and the closure of Wonderland, every single person inside this approximately 13-kilometre area still harboured deluxe toey tingles for […]

How many blokes do I have to kick to get sin-binned around here?

How many blokes do I have to kick to get sin-binned around here?

Anyone who thinks that rugby league has retrograded in to a diluted and sanitised nanny state should give themselves a triple uppercut and then watch the last half hour of this round’s Broncos versus Bulldogs clash. According to the evidence presented at Suncorp Stadium, it seems that you can unleash a double-footer to an opponent’s […]
