Joshua Kerr is a sportaholic and has been a sportswriter since 2019. Whether it be motorsport, cricket or something different, Josh is always armed with opinions in his articles and in the comments section. Despite being an English Aussophile, he has so far been unsuccessful in his attempts to get interested in the AFL or the NRL. At least he gave it a go. "My mantra is: put your brain into gear and if you can add to what's on the screen, then do it; otherwise, shut up." - Richie Benaud.

And the abuse/racism/sexism/homophobia slips through the net while the well-behaved lot get stopped in their tracks for something that’s hardly an indiscretion. This thread is a classic example of how things should be so well done chaps, I’ve had a good laugh reading them 😊

Good.

Dragons abandon Folau talks over backlash

The fact is you can’t even have a left-field opinion sometimes, no matter how much evidence you use, without copping abuse, mainly from anonymous keyboard warriors. And they claim you’re disrepecting their opinion! Oh please…

For those of us that are left, this is day dot, we all just stay ourselves, people take us for who we are, and if they want to insult and argue rather than debate nicely and learn from one another, then click the flag button and that’ll be the end of that one.

Eddie McGuire's trainwreck of a spin job only reinforces damning Collingwood report

There’s too many anonymous keyboard warriors out here thinking it’s acceptable to go straight to the abuse card instead of responding to reasonably explained opinions with reasonably explained opinions. I would write an article about it to at least attempt to do something about it, but the power of the keyboard warrior makes such an article detrimental to my own prospects. Best wishes to you Spruce, if you read this, you will be missed, go well for the future.

‘no more Roar’? Don’t tell me we’re losing you Spruce!

Good good, all the best as always 👍

Ben Stokes, Sydney Sixers want DRS in the BBL

Same here! How’s things up in Queensland though? Fairly decent after the blip with the weekend of lockdown?

Not too bad, yourself?

For sure, that does suck, but getting on top of it when there’s one person will allow the good times to return sooner rather than later (again I’m speaking from experience). Nobody says lockdowns are easy, but the Aussie approach has always worked.

Australia badly needs an A tour this year

Count your blessings that your governments are quick on the ball (from a disgruntled Pom).

All the best for the week though, lockdowns are rubbish!

I’m sure I’ve seen the red/green traffic lights used somewhere before. It’s the most cost effective option as far as I’m concerned.

Mitch Marsh goes troppo after BBL's latest controversial umpiring decision

The BBL is a glorified domestic tournament. I think it’s great but its standing isn’t high. It should not be on the priority list for DRS. Perhaps getting a third umpire to watch replays would be a start with no technical gubbins involved.

My understanding was that 9 would show one of the opening round Friday night games FTA before reverting to Saturday nights for the rest of the season.

You can now sign up for Stan Sport ahead of the Super Rugby season

Joe! All the best for your inauguration next week.

Mitchell Starc should be dropped for Brisbane

He’s not *that* Craig McDermott.

Is Joe Burns burnt?

I think you’re thinking of I See Red by Split Enz, Lionheart.

A song for each A-League club in 2021

I’m a Brit, and I knew where it is!

But seriously, editors add in information sometimes, just trying to make sure everyone understands what you’re talking about, even if you probably should know where Newcastle is. And not the ‘why aye man’ Newcastle either.

This is what the power of sport is, to bring people together, and to make wonderful memories. Thank you for writing this Bill, have a safe trip back to Newcastle.

I always find it such a shame when I find out more about a person after their death – a fitting tribute to a great cricketer Andy.

Then again, unless I am mistaken, WA is the size of the UK!

Saying that, there’s snow in the forecast for tomorrow, would cheer a few people up due to the national obsession with it 😂

Yeah, can’t say it’s fun, would happily return to the lazy summer days watching England’s home Tests in a flash.

We actually haven’t had snow where I live in Worcestershire since March 2018. Some pretty mild Februarys in recent years too. 20C and thereabouts.

Oh yes, very cold (but beautiful clear skies) on Christmas Day. A storm moved through last night as well, a harmless one as they tend to be in our neck of the woods.

Not too bad Bernie thanks for asking.

I’m with Paul on this one, it’s a nice touch but it doesn’t seem 100% right. Unfortunately, I know from experience how important it is to make sure that it is the deceased whose wishes are fulfilled rather than those of some family members. A difficult decision for sure for the Jones family.
