There’s no way Fonua-Blake wrote the apology. It just makes Manly look even worse. Shallow, hollow and totally without integrity. Line up sponsors, this is a mob to hitch your wagon to.

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

Exactly right. He hasn’t actually apologized. The club issued a statement. I doubt Fonua-Blake would ever have used the word “regrettable”.

Fonua-Blake apologises for ref spray

Nowhere near the worst. Good list there though Ryan. I’ll go a bit further back…Justin Poore for Parra was one of the worst signings I’ve ever seen.

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

I like how you’ve made the Souths coach sound French. Nice touch.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 7

Rio Tinto blowing up Aboriginal caves. Done it before and will do it again. Oops sorry they say. They may as well personally spit in the faces of the local mob.

The sports media must promote inclusivity

Good riddance to a bad pox.

Cricket Australia names Nick Hockley as interim CEO after Roberts' departure

Don’t forget the Meapro Ham and a voucher to Viking Sauna.

Rugby league legend Noel Kelly passes away

At first I thought this was one of Dane Eldridge’s articles. Not having a go at Dane, I really like his stories.

V'landys is out of touch and losing his battle with AFL and rugby

Yeah it’s better to have lawyers and salesmen/women running the country

Australian Medical Association rubbishes NRL's crowd plans

You’ll cause an argument over who gets first crack at La Cucaracha

Even if everything was perfect and the refs never made a mistake ever again, people and certain journalists would still complain. “The game’s too robotic, it needs more character”.

Let's just enjoy the footy once it's back

Don’t care about one ref, new rules, flu shots, the draw, Channel 9, blokes having fun in isolation….sorry if I’ve missed anything. But place the ball on the tee, the refs whistle and the defence rumbling down the field. Rugby league.

That was a good read Tigerbill. Thanks.

My memories of cricket in the Dacca Stadium: Part 1

So has Dylan Walker become pure after his near fatal mishap a couple of years ago?

V’landys dismisses “alarmist rhetoric” around NRL restart

Nahh, I’ll wait until next season even if crowds are allowed back this year.

When can we go to a game of footy, Scotty?

I’d be avoiding England for at least 12 months.

Australia’s UK tour in doubt

What sort of cult Christians are these blokes? Even the fundamentalist Bible Belt rocked up for polio vaccine in the 50s/60s.

I’m desperate for the footy to start but I’ll stand by Sia Soliola

Exactly right Scott. I’ve mentioned this on other forums. I’m sure it’s possible some of the players who object to the flu shot have taken pain killing injections before. Some science good, other science bad. Seems irrational.

Eales and Giffen.

Pick the greatest Wallabies team of the Super Rugby era: Second row

Stuart Law better than Mark Waugh….now I’ve heard everything.

Stuart Law in ODIs was terrible. He was the classic nudge it around for singles for ages. As soon as he went for an attacking shot….in the air….and out.

Best cricketers for Australia and England who played only one Test

Welcome Warriors. Good luck.

Nomadic Warriors bound for Australia

I had the David Hookes WSC T-shirt. Wore it every day over the WSC summer. Then the Parra jersey took over.

Your summers sounded very similar to mine. Nice read Matt.

Memories of backyard cricket in the summer of ‘79

Spot on. I know I’m being silly, but with that many staff, there must be a shoelace purchaser, clipboard maintenance worker and a person to recharge all the lap tops.

Clubs can’t blame the NRL for their financial mismanagement

Closer to Sydney maybe? Not many flights these days.

NRL confirm season length, lock in date for grand final
