Billy Dib fighting Amir Khan is a disgrace

During the week it was announced that Billy Dib would fight Amir Khan in Saudi Arabia for the newly minted WBC Welterweight Pearl title – whatever that is – only for the WBC to withdraw the Pearl title and announce that the fight would be for their vacant International title.

So in other words you actually can’t point to any incident so your assertion that he was a “DIRTY” player is just BS!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Can you please provide all these blatant examples of him playing “DIRTY”?

No excuse to boo Goodes

You still have not explained exactly why you think he is a flog!

No excuse to boo Goodes

His mother was dragged from her family as part of the stolen generation.

Maybe it is you who need some perspective muppet.

No excuse to boo Goodes

If you don’t care about it why waste your time writing a comment?

No excuse to boo Goodes

Do you even know what Liberal means? Or do you just like spouting “jingoisms” and “buzzwords”.

“Please” dont “let” the “” hit you on the way “out”!!!

Over to you Macca!

Sorry you have lost me.

“your are right”? Is that meant to be a quote of mine from somewhere in this thread?

“wrong”? Is there an alternative definition of the word I am missing? Or, again are you quoting me somewhere here that I don’t know about?

No excuse to boo Goodes

Sorry where was the attack?

Just said you can tell yourself what ever you want to make yourself feel better about yourself. Take that how ever you like. If it causes you to get defensive or question what I stated it probably says more about you than me.

You have gone out of your way to not make an actual comment on the subject of the article, and somehow make it about poor old Ablett and the hypocrisy of the swans fans even though the 2 things have nothing to do with each other.

I am comfortable with my opinion on the matter and the way I conduct myself at football games, both to those I support, and those I don’t.

No excuse to boo Goodes

Mate keep telling yourself whatever you want.

Whatever makes you feel better about yourself and your obvious views!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Can you please point out where you were told that you HAD to like Goodes?

As far as I can tell, the only thing people were saying was don’t hate and boo Goodes just because he is an outspoken Indigenous man. You may not like everything he say’s, and you may not like him as a player, but is that any reason to constantly harass and bully someone?

Being named Australian of the Year is not someone forcing you to like someone.

No excuse to boo Goodes

Ablett also elbowed 2 players in the head earlier this year and got let off both times by the AFL. Think that might also have something to to with it.

Am against booing players at the best of times, but especially for off field stuff, but cheap shot someone and I can handle a player getting booed!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Not sure why people find the need to boo anyway!

Is it the insecurity of knowing that you or the team you support are just not on the same level as the person you are booing and in their heads they know they never will be??

Surely lifting your own team to challenge and compete, and acknowledging those facts gives more satisfaction?!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Hahaha Clutching!!!

No excuse to boo Goodes

Please don’t try to equate the booing of the 2.

The booing of Ablett has not been in the same stratosphere as it was for Goodes.

Goodes also did not get let off for 2 grub cheap shots on opposing players prior to him getting boo’d.

This seems to be the old Trump tactic of “look over there” rather than actually addressing the issue that was raised in the article.

Nice try though

No excuse to boo Goodes

I get your logic, and it does make sense, I just think it is pretty harsh on Sydney teams who don’t have ANZ as their home ground having to give up potentially 2 homes games. (Magic Round and Easter Showdown)

The Easter Showdown could be Sydney's answer to Brisbane's Magic Round

Why shouldn’t out of town teams have to give up a home game? The Sydney clubs had to do it for Magic Round!

The Easter Showdown could be Sydney's answer to Brisbane's Magic Round

Add Fifita to the benchmark! Not the biggest fan of the bloke but wow!

On another note almost time to head to head to Henson for the Beer, Footy, Food Festival!! #weare8972

Robbie’s 300th inspires the Tigers, while the Red V continues to die a slow death

As a Tigers fan loved the win and loved that we hung in but as you say both teams are just making up the numbers this year.

Thought the call on Ponga was very harsh

People nearly always step up to the plate. The quality of tennins may not be the same but it seems we always have those rivalries. Mac v Borg v Conners, Lendl v Becker v Mats v Edberg, Sampras v Aggassi, etc etc

Hopefully Kyrgios can sort the mental stuff out and maybe start something with the likes of Tsitsipas!

Why Novak Djokovic will be - and possibly already is - the GOAT

I think a lot of people get caught up in the politeness and tears of Federer but forget that he was a petulant brat when he first came on the tour. He has obviously got great advisers as he has turned it around to the point that he can do no wrong.

No doubt all three will go down as greats of the game and it is hard compare eras so I will not say that any of this current batch are definitively the GOAT. What I will say is that I personally think that Joker has already gone past the other 2 in this era, and it is only a matter of time until he gets the lead in the total GS titles.

Fed is probably plays the most attractive tennis of the 3 and seems to make it look effortless, but at the end of the day, sport is about winning, and and that is something that Joker does better than the other 2. (Except of course for the Clay where there is no doubt that Nadal is so far ahead of anyone in History it is crazy!)

An opinion piece from Tracey Holmes?? Really??

If anything she has proved over the last few years that she is not averse to making up nonsense to suit her agendas and try to be relevant as a sports columnist.

Mack Horton's stance is about much more than a problem with Sun Yang

Tigers have an experienced 6 who they are willing to offload who Ivan is a big fan of!

Official: James Maloney to leave Penrith and end career overseas

Get where you are coming from GB, but even if the testers did not have the ID to take the vial’s away, was there really any need to take a hammer to them, especially since the DCA was not the one who drew his blood?? He also had refused to give a urine sample and left the testing room on a number of occasions?!

I am sure it would have been easy enough for the DCA to call someone to clear up the credential issue pretty quickly!! The other question is what was his mother doing in the Testing room??

Apart from the fact that Cricket Australia banned Warner and Smith and not the global governing body the ICC just like they did not ban plenty of players from other countries.

At least our own body had the balls to take a hard line stance that every other country has been to weak to with their own players!!

Swimming Australia also sanctioned our own swimmers for the Stilnox incident, even though it is not a banned substance!!

I think Australia does better than most countries in taking a hard line against our own.

You have also obviously not seen the comments by a multitude of swimmers from other nations re Sun Yang, and most of those do not even compete in events against him. The fact that WADA are the ones taking him to the CAS says about all you need to know!
