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!

Pretty unnecessary stuff ‘Johnny’. Hopefully you and yours aren’t affected by any of this.

Pay cuts will show the players are genuine partners in the NRL

The AFL and NRL both have tax exempt status Betty.

'Scaremongering at its absolute best': Veteran AFL journo takes aim at ARLC Chairman

Agree with this Onside. It’s a huge issue for financial reliability and social impact…

What’s more important: Public health or footy?

Don’t start me Jeansy! And I wouldn’t relocate, I would build…

All fair Spruce!

You’re absolutely right – They don’t have to pay, but I wager a small funding boost or something like that would be received a lot better at the new rights negotiations than letting the whole joint tank.

Fair enough Jimmmy, but don’t you think the ARLC have a duty of care to the players and their families?

Cheers Nathan. Gaming intake I’m going to look at a little later in the year.

Funnily enough, Greenberg has been a much better performer than V’Landys through all this.

Within reason, decent broadcasters and clubs shouldn’t be holding back payments for players or the league, either.

I’ve seen that too Onside. Wonder if the Japanese folk will be happy with hundreds of thousands of visitors coming from overseas at one time? Surely there’ll be no crowds. Will there be any athletes?

It’s an interesting question AWR. I felt weird as hell watching Friday’s games.

That’s a piece for another time, no doubt about it

Agree Val!

The Roar's NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 1

That’s the main thing isn’t it Baz. I reckon Dogs can play Week one finals but if they stumble out of the blocks again, everyone’s getting sacked.

My 2020 NRL wish list

Oh man we are gonna cop it tomorrow when the full lists are released…

The Roar's NRL top 50 players: 10-1

I’m just messing with you Baz. These are good fun and bloody tough- I like everybody but you’ve gotta get ruthless, especially outside the top 15 or so. Once the full 50 is unveiled I’ll owe a lot of apologies!

The Roar's NRL top 50 players: 30-21

Is a fella with 11 origins and over 150 first grade games really a myth? I reckon 30 is about right for now.

The Roar's NRL top 50 players: 30-21

No Kikau yet from Baz… And 40 for SST! Shameful!

The Roar's NRL top 50 players: 30-21

That’s what I did Randy, but still gapped a few I should have included. More to come…

The Roar's NRL top 50 players: 40-31

I’d support this Mushi, and then some

What should we expect from Fox League?

Hang on- I meant $100 BILLION! And everyone is outraged!!

What should we expect from Fox League?

A quick note folks – I’ve got a number wrong here. The $100 mill for Kayo should be just over $50 mill. I double counted some costs. Will get it fixed up. 👍
