Does Kevin have that little faith in his current squad to salivate at the prospect of GI returning?

Walters: Inglis will play Origin again

Good stuff.

Personally I think the Roosters and Storm should have to play each other for the rest of the season to give everyone else a fighting chance.

Roosters, Storm hit with tough NRL draw

You can use many words to describe the Storm, but fail isn’t one of them.

NRL reportedly finalises broadcast deal with Fox and Nine

Interestingly I did some more digging and in 2019 the Storm were second for viewership on Channel 9 behind the Broncos.

Therefore I take back my original statement about it being a small market and will join in with your frustration.

NRL reportedly finalises broadcast deal with Fox and Nine

Hit the nail on the head there mate.

Victoria for NRL is a terribly small market, and it doesn’t pay to please a small market. If the Storm were not so successful I highly doubt you would see more than 1-2 games per year.

NRL reportedly finalises broadcast deal with Fox and Nine

I believe it may be bat peptides.

NRL picks six venues for season restart

Yes but only because it let the Melbourne Storm back into the game and nobody needed that. 😛

No asterisk on the 2020 NRL season but excuses abound

No mate, not trying to make excuses at all.

Clearly stated he shouldn’t have gotten involved. Without full context the rest is conjecture.
I was more making the point that he did the right thing taking it to the police and having to face the consequences for his actions rather than pay out the blackmail.

'We can't have it' - Cronk slams NRL brats after Walker video emerges

The Sharks are mad they said.
Nobody wants to give up their home ground for two seasons for a building project.

Well who is laughing now eh?? Genius.

NRL picks six venues for season restart

The Sharks were poised this season, poised.

We had carefully lost our first two outings in order to lull everyone into a false sense of security, bid farewell to Gal so now nobody knew who the ball was going to get thrown to, and bulldozed our home ground and signed a deal with the devil to play at his. We were set, really set.

Now that they have gone and re-jigged things so that everyone is on an even playing field all that hard work was for nothing. Lucky we are the superior footy team 😛

I’ll take an asterix any day of the week. Up Up.

What about “The Greatest Redemption Story Of All Time – Mitchell Pearce”.

We’ve already got the soundtrack.

Ten NRL documentary ideas inspired by The Last Dance

Because it’s most likely option B Davico, it’s most likely option B.

'We can't have it' - Cronk slams NRL brats after Walker video emerges

I’m not defending anything.
Where am I defending his actions??
Did you read my whole post??
Being provoked into a fight is very different to acting on that provocation. Once you are in you are in, and he certainly shouldn’t have gotten involved.

All we have seen is a very small part of the puzzle, and you can make that piece fit wherever you like.

'We can't have it' - Cronk slams NRL brats after Walker video emerges

Of course he was.

But then he also had a mate film it, and didn’t report the assault to police, and then tried to blackmail the bloke he knew played for the NRL. There is something very strange going on around here.

Cody Walker being blackmailed: reports

To be fair…

No it’s not a great look, nor a great action to come in and kick a bloke in the chest. We’ve all been in fights (have we, do I need to start a poll) and know how the blood rushes and you can get a bit carried away.
No it’s not a great look to then try and blame getting carried away on other things. You got involved mate, admit it and take the medicine.

However he could have kept this quiet by paying the bloke off. Instead he’s taken it to the police for investigation and put his own head above the trenches by doing so. Whether this is motivated by wanting to do the right thing or just to make sure he didn’t pay out grubs who probably provoked him into a fight so they could try and earn some money is anyones guess.

I am guessing option B though.

FFS

Is there anyone not trying to stop this competition from starting again??

More drama for NRL as refs launch Fair Work complaint

But then you get the bunker making mistakes as well.

At the end of the day it’s humans making decisions. I’d much rather save a couple of million and let the refs rule the game. If you want to stop them charging at the ref then bring in the control Rugby affords its referees. Captains only talk to the ref, and no backchat or you get sent off. Seems to work really well there.

As for Gould, well the less said the better really.

Bunker to survive NRL cost cuts

I love Gal, did wonderful things for our club.

Tyson would annihilate him, then Sonny Bill, then the next two or three mugs who think they can box behind them. And that would just be round 1. I know athletes should set their sights high, but you also have to be a bit realistic.

This is like trying to climb Everest wearing nothing but a Mankini.

Footy player boxing bouts must stop before someone gets hurt

Yes but nowhere nearly as often, or with such annoying regularity.

Besides we are not playing at Shark Park this season either, and Manly have never beaten us at ANZ stadium (I think).

Things are looking Up Up 😛

Who wins the strangest NRL season in history?

It’s the vibe Scotty my boy, it’s the vibe.

Who wins the strangest NRL season in history?

SHAAAARKS.

Sure we lost the first two rounds, but we are only on -6 with narrow losses to the Storm and Bunnies. I haven’t seen the draw for the new comp but it doesn’t matter, the Sharks fear no team. (Well except for Manly at Brookvale but we aren’t playing at Brookvale so that rules that one out.)

I’ve got a good feeling about this.

Up Up.

Who wins the strangest NRL season in history?

It’s also not mandatory.
It was mandated by the NRL as part of the back to work scheme, but players were given to option to turn it down. The NRL will then review this after receiving all the responses back and make further determinations from there with advice from the medical community.

Should the medical advice come back that those who refuse the injection should not be allowed in the NRL safety bubble, then surely those players will be given the option of taking the shot to play, or sitting out the season.

These are strange times, and these are decisions being made in short spaces of time. How about everyone calm down a little and let the process take its course.

Cartwright can say no to his flu shot, but the NRL should say no to him

My personal favourite was when Mr Waterhouse came out with the commentators onto the field to present the game and then update us helpfully with the odds.

Classy.

"There's a contract in place": V'landys hoses down Nine speculation

“League has such high regard for contracts.”

Quote of the day. 👍

"There's a contract in place": V'landys hoses down Nine speculation

Yes, Channel Nine will survive. Their revenue and profits have taken a hit but they are in a good position financially.
