AJ watches far too much sport. When he's not watching it, he's reading about it. When he's not reading about it, he's writing about it and when he's not writing about it, he's talking about it on the podcast ‘A Sporting Discussion’. Rugby league has AJ's heart, but he loves to give space to the sports that the mainstream forgets - he’ll never rest until Australian baseball gets the coverage it deserves! He’s always game for a debate in the comments section or on twitter @AJMithen - but you’d best come prepared!

You know I did Baz

Are you going to be ok, Blackberry Smoke?

NRL refs are victims of dinosaur fans and gutter journalism

Why Baz? Some players get more than $300k to play one game a week, plus training… (Which ref is on $300k?)

That’s my #1 concern TWAS.

No matter what went wrong, it's totally not Peter V'landys' fault

This one Christo! I hope they’re preparing the surface at Crestwood Oval in Baulkham Hills…

It's time for a Queensland NRL grand final

That’s what annoys me most about this whole thing!!!

Players partying and going camping risk blowing it for all of us

Really enjoyed this!

Athlete wellbeing in the time of COVID-19 - and beyond

HOw do you think I felt writing it! 😛

As Todd Greenberg exits, what will happen next for the NRL?

Agree 100% Scott. So much of the ‘must have a rugby league background’ talk just shows so many people out there have no idea what a CEO does day to day and is what they’re responsible for long term.
I still reckon it’ll be PVL.

Thanks Busty.

Every sport has been exposed financially John, globally.

The refs tried that in 2018 Rellum, remember what happened? More open play, creative teams doing well, then…

Craig Bellamy is right - settle down with the ‘innovations’

Why not Big Daddy – seems anything is possible these days! 🙂

I very strongly second these nominations kk

They don’t have the cash Red- i’d hope they spend the rest of this rights deal banking enough cash to at least secure a loan for the startup capital!

It’s time for rugby league and Channel Nine to part ways

I compared an unattributed statement to pieces written by ‘staff writers’ because they are designed to draw attention. That’s all. We’d gotten through things pretty well without anyone thinking clickbait was the point of the article…
And it’s not passive aggressive at all Mushi! I do hope you have a great Easter. Let’s cross swords again on Monday. 👍

‘Attacking the integrity’ is hardly what’s going on here Mushi.

You haven’t explained your position other than whipping out ‘clickbait’ and attacking the site’s journalistic integrity. I think that’s enough for today. Enjoy your Easter!

I have no idea who you are, where you are, or what you do. You do make it sound very important though. I do know you love to be the contrarian, and that’s fine.

‘Integrity hatchet job’? I’m quoting directly from an unattributed statement from nine entertainment.

You’ve called nothing ‘out’, you’ve made a cheap and unoriginal point, then gone ad hominem for no real reason.

As for ‘clickbait’, I’m not sure which websites around the world post articles they hope no one will read.

We write what we write and most defend their position in the comments. I quite enjoy the cut and thrust. If that’s clickbait to you, maybe a sports opinion site isn’t the place to be.

Your comments are usually more insightful and interesting than this.

Yawn. Our names are on these pieces Mushi, where’s yours?

It’s time for rugby league and Channel Nine to part ways

Happy Easter to you too Scott. Be a handy little earner wouldn’t it, but a lot has to go right!

Interesting times isn’t it Mid…

No doubt Roberto. But maybe it’s time for the game to work with a broadcaster who treats the game with respect.
