Avoiding a “media circus” is “silencing”. While the motives aren’t nefarious. It is still willingly avoiding the issue. So it might as well be nefarious.

What’s the saying, the standard you walk past, is the standard you accept.

Seems Adelaide loved putting things in the “too hard” basket.

AFL News: Betts reveals Crows' shock stance over racist letter as skipper responds, Buddy Brisbane bound?

The whole camp, seems like an anachronism.

You can build reliance, and team comradery without abusing people.

Where most modern coaching is about player management, this is a throwback to the yelling and screaming insults to inspire. Wonder why that didn’t work?

'Weird disrespectful s--t': Betts questions need for brutal bonding camp, AFL urged to apologise

Tim Costello, can put it better than I could: https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/national/have-we-missed-the-irony-of-the-manly-jersey-saga-you-bet-20220728-p5b5b9.html

However, I find it extremely disappointing that many faiths take such a strident stance on LGBTIQA+ issues and are all too often mute on critical social problems. I find it tragic that the churches’ voice is so often silent on issues of poverty, inequality, domestic violence … and gambling.

'Advertising a sin': A Christian perspective on Manly's pride jersey

FYI, Soccer doesn’t hold the sole rights too Football. It’s full name is Association Football, like Rugby Football, Australian Rules Football etc…

A hotter take, I hate English league grounds with try zones that are about 2 metres wide. That can get in the bin. Looks horrible.

For the good of the game, we must cull the Kangaroos from the Rugby League World Cup

No. Sabbath is the holy day.

The holy Day can be any day, depending on the religion. For Christianity it’s on a Sunday. So if these blokes turn up to Church on a Sunday for a service, then that’s the Sabbath. And working on the Sabbath is prohibited.

Club and players to blame in Manly pride jersey fiasco as boycott highlights hypocrisy on other issues

In terms of design, this jersey is one of the better ones.

Looks good.

If you want to be technical about, are you completely sure these players do not engage in every thing the Bible says is a sin?
PI culture is mostly a sin in the Bible, tattoos, eating of most of seafood. Even western introductions like pigs are forbidden. So I hope they’ve never eaten pork.
As Mary points out, why is this issue, the one they take a stand against? Not gambling or alcohol, which is a far greater issue in the community, than inclusion.

And playing at 4 Pines Stadium, and playing on a Sunday.

The issue with “Christians” is that they rarely follow Jesus’s message. Instead cherry pick, verses from both books to support their bigotry.

'Significant mistake': Hasler apologises for rainbow jersey as seven players boycott Manly game

I think professional is slowly reverting back to its original form. Single wicket.

'It's not the same': The T20 revolution is pushing me away from the game I grew up loving

The Heat are also a terrible team… Very one dimensional. Might change this year.

The IPL won’t be confined to India. Either outright or through ownership, the IPL will just a rolling tournament (in different countries) filling the calendar year.

This is good.

Let’s be honest, after 6PM on Christmas Day, the Christmas festivities are done. The arvo nap has been broken, picking at the leftovers has begun. everyone in a stupor (either from food or drink or both).

You go to turn on the TV, and it’s rerun junk. Some live sport would be good.

NBL's Christmas Day game a gift that'll keep on giving, hopefully more sports follow suit

Give it time, but the IPL will become the foremost competition for professional cricket.

I assume there will be regional competitions, IPL: Caribbean, I had thought IPL: Australia, to keep players playing and/or to blood younger players in less prestigious competitions. That way the IPL brand can get almost year round coverage.

But this movement; I guess the southern hemisphere will be IPL: South Africa.

Maybe IPL: Australia becomes the 2’s, wait it already is…

Latest IPL purchase makes the BBL look like the Small Bash

And isn’t really some 16th Century bloke’s fault for trying to show that English (a language with a mostly Germanic base) was as structured as Latin (a romance language). 👎

‘Curse of verse’ spreading in sporting circles - English language versus vulgarians at the gate

hate to break it to you. All words are made up and no word is more correct than any other.

If you know what is meant by the word within the context of the conversation. It’s a word.

Thanks champ.

Why Glenn Maxwell isn't the answer for Australia's Asian woes

On occasion being better works out for NSW.

See my last point, in Perth it worked out for them, with a bit of help from Ashley Klein.

Freddy's Panthers obsession is what cost the Blues Origin

Watched cricket before?
Maxwell opens the bowling in T20’s. He’s better than a part timer ala Head, Smith and Labuschagne.
India, will see what happened in Sri Lanka, And if you don’t think every pitch will be a raging spinner. Worse than the last time England where over there. You are kidding yourself.
Head v. spin awful
Maxwell v. spin 100 times better. even if the sample rate is white ball cricket. It’s still experience.

Why Glenn Maxwell isn't the answer for Australia's Asian woes

this is why NSW don’t get Origin, “…while Reuben Cotter looks like a player of the future if he doesn’t play himself into the ground.
That’s the type of player you want in a representative match.

What if State of Origin really was a selection trial for the Kangaroos?

as a Queensland fan, one NSW players strikes fear into us. Josh Addo-Carr, and not just cause Gus will say ad nauseum “fastest man on the planet”. But because he’s a game changer, if NSW had him on the wing v. Gagai. It’s a no contest. Last year each time he had the ball he was threatening.
Instead. Fittler selects an Origin either like a fantasy footy team or with this idea, that second rowers playing center will bust the game open. Without having an actual game plan to do it.
Also Queensland selects players we know will get the job done. They all know they have a role to play and they do it. Fittler selects the best positional players (see above) and hopes it all works out some how.

If Burton didn’t want to fight, don’t shape up. Burton wanted a fight and got one.

Tino came into restrain him from punching and being punched more. He wasn’t being held to be an open target.

Such a terrible take Kurt.

KURT GIDLEY: Maroons deserved win, Blues weren't complacent but what was Burton meant to do after getting hit?

Gallen’s punch is the worst example. Typical NSW all show no go.

Gallen and Myles, doesn’t count. Sure Gallen hit Myles (had a number of free goes), but someone who’s now boxing, Myles doesn’t move, doesn’t flinch, doesn’t react, like he’s not been hit at all.
