Oh haha. So you’re both upset that people are making a choice that you wouldn’t?… Just stop right there for a second… Now have you noticed the world didn’t stop revolving?…

Mundine-Horn is dangerous and grotesque, and a few other things

So you don’t like boxing… And you don’t want to watch it… So you try and force your opinions on everyone else. How sad.

Did Greg Inglis steal your candy as a child? Did he kick your dog? Did he say something that upset your poor soul? Please, just say it… or perhaps just let it go mate. Your cheap shots at Inglis are painting you as a very sad person.

Game 3 should be Greg Inglis' last Origin

Mary, are you suggesting that the female anatomy is incapable of holding up to the rigours of being a full-time professional rugby league player?

The challenges of a three-game women's Origin series

Absolutely correct. Can you imagine what 7000 spectators would look like in a stadium like Suncorp, and the money the NRL would lose on overheads.

Human anatomy, that’s the issue with women playing 40 minute halves. Not just to do with injuries either. Think of endurance and so on in a higly physical sport like rugby league. The only possible “fix” imo, would be to increase the amount of interchanges.

Absolutely nothing to do with what you are trying to suggest.

The challenges of a three-game women's Origin series

Silly suggestion. The idea of a certain raiser is a build up to the main event.

Put simply, the men are bigger, stronger and faster. This is why they get more viewers and spectators.

Can you imagine how demoralizing it would be for the female player watching thousands of spectators – that have already been there for hours – walking out while they’re trying their hardest.

Ah, I sometimes forget that we’re in 2018, then I read something like this.

I appreciate that you’ve at least made an effort by submitting an article. But picking players like Maddinson is one of the reasons Australian cricket has taken a down hill spiral in the last 10 years.

Is it time to consider Nic Maddinson for the ODI team?

Enjoyed it! One thing that gets me about women’s rugby league is the physicality. Some of these women hit damn hard.

Prior should’ve been picked years ago.

Matt Prior isn’t the popular selection, but he’s the right selection

While Lebron is getting all of these statistics he gets (because as an individual he is a superstar) he fails to lift the players around him to a different level.

Your argument here is a classic straw man argument. Perhaps Scott Pippen was a very good leader himself. Did he lead the Bulls to any championships? If he didn’t, he wasn’t as good a leader as MJ, perhaps he was on par with Lebron…

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

Hey, Usain Bolt is an 8x Olympic Gold medallist, and 11x world champion. He also holds the 100m and 200m world records. Is it these statistics that make him the greatest sprinter of all time, or are these statistics not “useful” too?

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

“Nothing you wrote in your article is remotely useful and nothing you’ve posted in support of it is remotely rationale”

Worst comment of the day right here… Please tell me how you judge a players “greatness”, if you think statistics aren’t useful in judging?

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

Once again Josh, you are being a Lebron nut hugger here. You really, really like Lebron, ok, I’m perfectly fine with that because I think he is one of the greatest and you are also entitled to your opinion. But this article is about statistics, with almost all statistics showing that while Lebron is a “great”… he is certainly not the “greatest”

“To use rings as the final call”. Good try. there are many areas I have mentioned in the article where MJ covers Lebron. But people like yourself are the reason “because you will inevitably meet someone that will destroy your case with cold, hard, facts, or simple statistics, for ease of understanding” was put in this article.

I think MJ is the greatest basketball player to ever live, and plenty of statistics that prove it. You think Lebron is the greatest basketball player of all time because he looks cool, has a cool name, and you refuse to look at statistics that say anything other than what you believe.

Yet if you take PPG out of the debate, Jordan is still the better of the two. Go figure.

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

As I mentioned in the article, some are better at certain attributes than others. Netherless, Bill Russell’s rebound record and champion records are excellent. He’s definitely worth a mention as one of the greats of the sport. But you can’t critique someone for “confirmation of bias”, than two paragraphs later produce TWO areas where Russell was better than Jordan to somehow put an argument across as him being the better basketballer. How ridiculous.

Mate, I think you may have misread something…

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

The PPG is a pretty relevant statistic considering Lebron gets mentioned as the GOAT evvvvvvvery time he has a big point scoring game.

Why statistics make LeBron’s 'GOAT' tag null and void

Oh please elaborate. What should we be discussing when comparing these two men?

Jay Nady didn’t call that fight off early at all. The rules state that if a fighter gets up, then falls down again after a knockdown, it’s an automatic stoppage of the fight.

Horn vs Crawford: History set to repeat in Vegas

No.

Could Kalyn Ponga have won the Cowboys last year's grand final?

I’m going to have a guess here that Lance has never played a game of Rugby League in his life… ?

Greg Inglis: Handy footballer, but not captaincy material

One of the more ridiculous calls I’ve read. Probably just trying to invoke “outrage”.

Inglis was QLD’s best player on Wednesday night, yet you don’t mention anything good he did. ?

What a weak argument by the way. Anyone can pick apart the mistakes that any human being makes because no human lives without flaws. Or do you have no flaws, Lance?

11/12… ?

State of Origin 1: The definitive stats preview

I’m not sure who exactly called it a “weak” era, but that is one of the most ridiculous notions.

To play in the same era as Nadal and Djokovic, who will also go down as all-time greats, and still be top dog. There is no doubt in my mind that Federer is the greatest tennis player of all time.
