“I just like to say that kids at school have been using those terms you described as offensive all the time these days, and for decades previously. ”

Oh well, that’s OK then. Kids have been doing something for decades, so everything’s sweet.

Seriously champ, can you not see the problem with that argument?

Some light on Addin Fonua-Blake's words

Assuming you even read the article, you clearly haven’t understood it.

Some light on Addin Fonua-Blake's words

There’s no doubt what he said. Both times it was captured via the ref’s mic.

Addin Fonua-Blake's 'punishment' doesn't go far enough

“It was “emotion and frustration” according to Des Hasler, and a case of a player who had “let his emotions get the better of him” in Phil Gould’s estimation.”

Well, yes. Of course it was. But so what?

I have a theory that if you want to find out someone’s true character, either put them under stress or get them drunk. As such, I think Fonua-Blake’s true character has been laid bare for all to see.

Disparaging, ignorant, offensive: Why Addin Fonua-Blake's behaviour warranted more than two weeks

I disagree on the climate factor. Games played at the start of the season would be played in far more oppressive conditions.

It’s more likely that the availability of stadiums in regards to cricket will be a relevant factor I think.

An MCG grand final probably can't happen - but where else works?

That’s true! But my guess is the AFL would probably make more money out of having it at Optus.

Would be interesting to see whether the AFL even have the contractural right to take the game away from the MCG, regardless of the attendance situation. There’s common sense and then there’s a legal contract…

An MCG grand final probably can't happen - but where else works?

If it can’t be held at the MCG, why is Marvel an option? I would have thought any venue in Victoria is off the table now. Or have I missed something?

Probably Optus is the best option at the moment. Great stadium, good capacity, no coronavirus issues (at the moment anyway), and would certainly sell out regardless of who is playing.

So what do YOU think of his actions on the weekend?

Joey Leilua the “worst signing by any club in the NRL era”? Hmm, he may well be

There you go – wasn’t that hard to admit it was it?

Wayne Bennett doesn't have a leg to stand on when firing up about his future

“He was contracted directly by Nathan Tinkler. ”
That’s technically true, but you’re hiding behind that technicality. His job was as coach of the team.

“There is a reason there was no mention of the 4-5-6 contracts Bennett would have signed in his first stint at Brisbane.”

I don’t believe there were any contracts signed by Bennett during this time – it was all handshake stuff. And as long as he kept getting what he wanted, why would he walk away from that.

Canberra – we know why he left. Well, we know what he ‘said’ was the reason.

Newcastle – sure they were a rabble at the time, but you think that’s a reason to walk away from a contract?

No, I literally cut and pasted your words. Interesting you now deny you said what you (clearly) said.

Just admit you over-reached with your comments and we can move on. Simple.

Well researched!

Although the number of years served isn’t really the point of the article is it…

Wayne Bennett doesn't have a leg to stand on when firing up about his future

por supuesto!

Collingwood face sanctions over AFL coronavirus breach

So the question is:
Are the players arrogant (rules are for other people) or just stupid (despite the rules being explained clearly to me, I don’t understand them)?

Collingwood face sanctions over AFL coronavirus breach

Nope, quoted you verbatim.

You answered incorrectly. I asked about coaches breaking their contracts. You gave examples of clubs sacking their coaches (and paying them out, which means the contracts weren’t broken). You do understand the difference don’t you?

Wayne Bennett doesn't have a leg to stand on when firing up about his future

Sigh…

So it (coaches “bailing before the end of their contract”) doesn’t happen “all the time” after all.

Thanks for providing the proof.

Except that the point of this story is to provide evidence as to why it ISN’T a non-story.

Which facts in the article aren’t true?

Or staying at one…

“Bailing before the end of the contract happens all the time.”

Really? All the time you say…. Care to back that up with some evidence?

Not enough quality players? You could well be right. But I’d add there aren’t enough quality coaches and administrators too.

The one big problem with NRL expansion

It needs to be drastic though. Otherwise clubs will continue to do these financially irresponsible things.

The sacking of Stephen Kearney absolutely stinks

“In the time Kearney has been coach, recruitment and results have been poor.”

In other words, sacking him is entirely justified. As such, it makes the title of this article rather misleading – although I’m guessing you didn’t write it?

I wonder whether the NRL should introduce a clause into their arrangements with the clubs. Something like: they have the right to sack a coach/player mid-contract, but the value of the payout is deducted from the amount of any monies payable from the NRL to the club.

That should make a few of them think twice before incurring that sort of income penalty.

The thing I took out of the round was that clubs have not settled yet. Fitness often looked questionable and skills are still rusty. It might be June, but it felt like we were watching pre-season games to be honest. I wouldn’t be paying too much attention to ANY results just yet.
