That’s insane, you can’t pick your captain until he makes the team.

BREAKING: Michael Hooper will remain as Wallabies captain for 2020

Not right and not definitely not fair. See what I have done there. Made a statement with absolutely no justification, just like yours.

Australia and English cricket teams miss important symbolism of kneeling for BLM

Because that information belongs in in a textbook, not in the constitution. WE ALL had ancestors roaming about in the wild 50,000 years ago, why is this one case so special? If you think you need special mention because the people living there 50k years ago might or might not be related to you then that is just weird.
How about we add this as well. “All the people who aren’t indigenous also had ancestors 50k years ago who lived somewhere on the planet, we just don’t exactly where.”

Maybe they are just tired of being told everyone is a racist by people whose major contribution to society is nothing.

The trouble with managing the game like letting players step off the mark is that they keep taking it further and further. 2m and you are called back? Well next time try for 3. And so on with every rule.

The problem might be you, not six again

The health risks? Spare me, she has more chance of dying in a car accident and I bet she still drives. It’s not like anyone else isn’t going to be underdone.
Too much junior tennis work, not enough maths work.

Barty pulls out of French Open

Fend of the year? It wasn’t even Kotoni’s fend of the week. Aitken got tossed like a rag doll last week.

Bradford, it’s in Queensland!

The silly season has commenced

no no no as Gould would say.

What you are doing is what got the club into the mess in the first place. You can’t at the same time – lock up all the good young players as well as afford old experienced players.

what poor attitude players? I see 19 year olds with 10 games vs 27 years olds with 150 games. And unless you happen to be David Fifita or Lockyer, you are going to lose. You can have an attitude cakewalk through King George Square and you are still going to get flogged.

What Siebold has done is set up beautifully for the future provided the incoming coach doesn’t start panicking and trying to buy immediate success.

Awakening the sleeping giant: Why the Broncos coming last is bad news for every other NRL team

If meaningless motherhood statements meant anything then the Broncos are well on their way to a new premiership.
My take is that the coach has tried a strategy of pain now for gain later as young stars grow into their prime at once. This doesn’t seem to be understood by most of the supporters who seem to think they are qualified to do better, despite never having run anything in their lives or sacrificed anything now to get a better life later.

A letter to Broncos fans

Chris Roach and Geoff Miller were great players, but they still got the bullet for someone bigger who helped the team win.

Why it was all McReight on the night against the Rebels

I dunno, a lot of great players in the past finished their careers in the bush 🙂

9 problems but a hooker ain't one: Knights and Storm two sides of the same coin

The Broncos played a Soviet style territory for time game in 2015…

Vicious circle for Rebels as Reds attack through defence

This was the sort of convoluted stuff I came up when I first started in business. Didn’t last a year till I realised it was all just rubbish.

The player point system needs to replace the salary cap

Luckily my old girl must have been socialised as a pup. I always worry about her fight clubbing the other dogs but it has never happened. Can’t be too careful as an owner.

The NRL's Integrity Unit continues to be maddeningly and bafflingly inconsistent

They might come in handy again in the next few years!

I like his story, never giving up and getting back as a batsman. If he can get that consistency he could be a Rodgers or Hussey like figure for quite a few years.

And hopefully I will put a small dent in the rabbit population over the long weekend up here 🙂

I already have a 2nd hand dog. I keep my eye on the staffy rescue up here.

Definitely, but if your minutes are faster than everyone else in history, you have to be up there somewhere. It can’t all be faster bowling rates.

“Bradman does not hold even a single one of the test records for fastest 50, 100, 200”
Except for fastest test double century in minutes. Faster in time than Astle’s 153 ball effort.

What myths about Bradman’s scoring rate? He might not have been Gilchrist, but he was definitely above average for his day….

From reading about Miller, I think he comes a lot closer than you think. He could bat, bowl genuinely fast (which Sobers didn’t), throw down a spinner or two and field with the best. I’m sure he could whack on the pads if needed as well…
Seems like they were cut from the same cloth as to the seriousness of what is essentially a game…

He’s like a Ferrari with no engine. Well at least a 94 SS Commodore…

Mate I’m sorry to hear. Hope it gets better for you.
