Langer was a better halfback than all of them. He could create something from nothing, you can’t coach that skill. Cronk was a very good cog in a very good machine. You aren’t the best halfback of all time by being that.

Cooper Cronk, the undisputed No. 7 king

An innovative approach definitely, but could it have been done without – Vaas, Murali, Jayasuriya, Arivinda De Silva, Ranatunga, Kaluwitharana, Tillakaratne, Mahanama, Gurusinha?

All Sri Lankan all time greats, and a good half the team at home in any all time great team. It’s a myth this team of underdogs beat the mighty Aussies, they were a better team full stop.

The reason England have never won a world cup

Broome, that’s in Queensland!

Mitchell Pearce deserves his shot at Origin redemption

This is just confirmation bias. As if none of the other competing teams had a slogan, or a plan or even a cool tshirt. The difference is they lost and no one remembers it.
This is what wins world cups, the best bowlers and batsmen or sometimes a hot steak of luck or form.

The reason England have never won a world cup

Is that even in Australia?

Here is how you fix it. Bring back the quick tap. No faffing about waiting for the refs to mark a spot. Give away a penalty in a huge jumble of bodies, pay the price. No new rules needed, no cards ruining the game, just Alfie Langer diving over before anyone knew what was going on.

Two simple ways to solve the NRL’s creeping penalty trend

3 things,
1. Get off my lawn! deliberate penalties have been going on as long as I have ever seen the game. It’s not something new. Watch a replay of the 89 grand final, the rucks resemble a madhouse.
2. Be careful what you wish for, yellow and red card in union for trivial things ruin a lot of games.

3. Take the bloody 2, that is what it is there for. If everytime an opposing team was in his half Sam gave away 2 then it would stop pretty quick.

Spare us this 'emerging trend' rubbish, Annesley. Deliberate cheating is entrenched

Of course you can. It depends on whether he actually drove the car or not.

Tolu Latu officially stood down by Waratahs

You didn’t trust Wikipedia did you?
Every other source has him born in Qld and living here till he was 10.

Ipswich, it’s in Queensland!

From the DT “NRL boss Dave Smith is still assessing Keary’s application to be considered for Queensland given he was born in the state and lived in Ipswich until the age of 10.”

Keary’s a Queenslander, let there be no more whining from NSW about who Qld pick. Good to see him get a start, seems like one of leagues nice guys.

You can’t have a fullback who can’t catch. End of story.

And I’m not sure a match where there were 6 tries to 4 against is the best one to be showcasing any fullback. Your job is also to organise the defence.

Why Israel Folau has done Kurtley Beale a favour

Cronk’s record isn’t as good as Kevin Walters, and no one is putting Kevvie up to be an immortal. It’s too soon to make judgements.

The burning question: Is Cooper Cronk an Immortal?

You know there is actual physical evidence from the flight recorder that your conspiracy theory is nonsense right?

Israel Folau has been unfairly hounded out of Australian rugby

You can’t see a difference between choosing to spend your money on something you want and and someone taking it off you and spending it on something they want? There is no irony involved. I’m happy to pay to watch sport but I don’t expect people who don’t like sport to subsidise me, especially as an adult.

Handouts, handouts and more handouts. Stop talking as if the government is giving out the money out of its own pocket. It’s giving out mine and your money. And I don’t know about you, but I have a lot better things to spend my money on than other people playing sport.

High taxes come with hard work in most cases.

I stopped watching Outsiders on the ABC because I couldn’t stand his whining over the most trivial of issues. There never seemed to be a subject he couldn’t suck all the joy out of with his animated whinging.

Gerard Whateley's epic spray of AFL's 'completely cocoa bananas' Dane Rampe ruling

“but had better invest wisely because he’d be almost unemployable after his contract ends.”
He’s not George Smith, he is 30 already, at the end of his contract retirement looms.

Will Raelene Castle survive the Folau scandal?

Does no one else think it is ridiculous that it takes the lifetime earnings of an average worker for someone to have his/her day in court?

Will Raelene Castle survive the Folau scandal?

Why not? Of course they can be.

The AFL’s administration has failed and it must be changed

And the sad thing is that this is not obvious to a lot of people.

Folau confirms he knocked back RA's peace offering

Pedant or pendant?

Maybe they just have the best scouts money can buy….

Take the money and run, Latrell

The one you had Folau referring to with the land bridge etc. It was a real event.

Pastor Folau breaches church code

That flood was 5 million years ago. Definitely not any biblical one…
