Sporting polygamist who supports two rugby league teams, the Bulldogs and the Storm. (The 2012 grand final was a nightmare.) Also a QPR tragic and a firm believer that Ian Chappell\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s mid-70s Aussie cricket team can never be topped.

Let’s have a 52 week season. That reminds me of this comedy sketch https://youtu.be/MusyO7J2inM

Enough is enough: Time to ban NRL off-season

Nelson saw someone who looked like Taukeiaho and he went beserk. But he apologised after he knocked him out. Wrong guy. All’s well that ends well.

Enough is enough: Time to ban NRL off-season

It was Taukeiaho, the Easts prop . Nelson didn’t get binned this time.

No, Manly were the best. If Trovoijvic not sin-binned, Manly would have won the comp for sure. They’d have held on to the beat Souths, then beat Canberra and Easts. No doubt about it. Manly = the real 2019 premiers.

Chooks won. They were better. The end.

If you’re going to put expansion back on the table, why not another three or four teams from Canberra? Some new franchises could be the Fyshwick Fokkers, the Narrabundah Narcissists, and the Curtin Cunning-Stunts. It’s about time the Raiders’ dominance of the Canberra market was broken up.

Dear Mr V'landys: here's how you can make the NRL even greater straight away

I thought you were going to say give Canberra the Friday 8pm spot every week instead of Brisbane, and there you go asking for another Brisbane team.

What a weird sport Kabbadi is. i just watched it on YouTube.

23 hours in Sydney

Yes, rugby league wasn’t very big in Melbourne in 1994.

23 hours in Sydney

Geez, your family dragged you off somewhere 20 minutes into the 94 grand final … were they trying to make you hate them? I sure hope it was an important event they were taking you to.

Great career for the Storm, now he deserves to pick up some retirement dollars in Japan.

Chambers confirms departure to rugby, Smith undecided

I mean, that’s the way it should be, not how it is.

A rational review of Sunday’s refereeing dramas

Once the ref signals six again, and the players respond, that is it. It’s not a decision they can reverse.

Maybe it is time to bring in the captain’s challenge, like the cricket DRS. 1 or 2 per game. This would take pressure off the refs, reduce the chance of a blunder like last night, and help reduce all the anger from fans. It has worked in cricket, it’s probably time for the NRL to try it.

The NRL knew the risks for years about on-field trainers and did nothing

WTF are these trainers doing on the field? And in the 3rd minute of play?

Your fourth point answers your second point. You say Easts are the best team of this era. I’d say Melbourne 2017 are as good or better. The difference is Cooper Cronk. Storm 2017 with Cronk were a great team, Roosters 2018-19 with Cronk are a great team. So, whoever he plays for wins!

Six talking points from the NRL grand final 2019

Can I ask WTF is a trainer / waterboy doing on the field 3 minutes into a game? The one that blocked the chargedown ball.

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

Yeah, I don’t think many Raiders fans were blowing up about Vunivalu touch judge call a couple of weeks back.

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

I’m just being objective, feeling for he Raiders fans. 1999 was a penalty try, no question. But tonight’s was a very harsh call.

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

Very sorry for the Raiders. Probably the worst grand final loss since 1999. But Easts got the job done when they were up against it for the whole second half, so well done to them.

And the Darcy Lawler medal goes to…

Roosters go back-to-back at 2019 NRL Grand Final

He should honour his contract. If he thought he was worth more, he shouldn’t have signed it.

What's the value of loyalty, John Bateman?

Whether or not he’s an ‘immortal’, Cronk’s results speak for themselves. He has even surprised me, a long time Storm fan.

Cronk must join league Immortals debate

Haters gunna hate!

Reading that story, I feel the pain of your long journey and hope for your sake Canberra wins on Sunday.

You say the rot set in in 1998 when they let Stuart and Clyde go. As a Bulldogs fan, we were very happy to take them and couldn’t believe the Raiders let them go. Ironically, Stuart was punted for Andrew McFadden, who is now his assistant coach.

Haters take note: Ricky Stuart is an indisputably awesome coach

Eastern Suburbs, South Sydney, Wests, etc. It’s not hard, is it.

Why the hell do I have to support the Sydney team in the grand final?

Yes, they are Eastern Suburbs. There are eight other Sydney teams.
