Thanks for sharing an anecdote that only further confirms what kind of cricketer, but more importantly in my view, what kind of person Roy was. RIP.

BRETT GEEVES: The night Roy threw a beer at my head and won my heart forever

Storm might be feeling some of the Chooks’ pain from last year. Injuries are a part of the game but it’s harsh when you get three big ones in Round 1.

'It kills us': Jennings and Welch ruled out for season for Storm as Bellamy hails 'bravest effort' to overcome Tigers

It’s a clumsy reference to the TV show, which is actually set in South Korea. To call this a serious incident of racism would be going a bit far, though.

Million Dollar Man: How much can a Teddy bear?

Wouldn’t the ATP be worried about a potential lawsuit if they lock Zverev out based on allegations? They’re serious allegations, no doubt, but we saw with the Jack de Belin situation that it can leave a lot of egg on the face of the administration if the accused is not convicted.

Zverev should be kicked off tour indefinitely over umpire attack and off-court abuse allegations

I don’t mind Anasta as a colour guy but I’m not sure he’s got the chops to host game day coverage, even less so for NRL 360, a show that at least attempts to seriously analyse the game.

LISTEN: Braith Anasta's bizarre mix-up on Jarrod Croker's injury leaves NRL fans facepalming everywhere

That’s extremely naïve of Handscomb to hide behind the old “I’m not a doctor” rhetoric. You don’t need to be a tenured professor of medicine to see how irresponsible it would be for Pucovski to continue.

Those close to him and especially his teammates can’t be burying their heads in the sand over this.

'Whatever it takes': Will Pucovski's teammates rally around him after latest concussion

So you’re saying the referee, who initially gave the penalty and overturned it after another look, is in on some kind of lizard people conspiracy?
This call wasn’t even made by the VAR, yet the VAR is biased?

Cricket Australia must act now to save Will Pucovski from himself

Got to wonder how much responsibility is on JT for the club’s long run without finals.

On paper, it’s not a terrible side. They should have more than two wins this far into the campaign.

City heap more misery on Wanderers

He can’t continue, simple as that. At the rate he’s being concussed, I shudder to think what the consequences may be.

Sad news. I wonder at what point he pulls the plug? Unfortunately it doesn’t seem he has a long-term future.

UPDATE: Pucovski subbed out of Shield match after another concussion

Hi Paulo, I don’t think Nick has ever really misbehaved when representing Australia. I was more referring to the way he acts as an individual player in slams/ATP events.

So, I think you’re on the money. He thrives in a team environment, that’s why I think he has to be picked each time we play Davis Cup.

Dear Lleyton: Nick Kyrgios must be selected for Australia's Davis Cup team

He’s behaved like a nonce in the past, Brian, it’s true. I hope his tennis does all the talking from now on.

Dear Lleyton: Nick Kyrgios must be selected for Australia's Davis Cup team

What a flippant response. The reason no one takes this pro-SFC conspiracy theory seriously is because it is baseless nonsense.
How many grand finals were gifted to Sydney FC, the way Melbourne Victory’s win in Newcastle was, because of ‘technical issues’?

Heward-Belle heroics help Sydney past Adelaide, Sky Blues go top

I asked AdelaideAndy this almost 24 hours ago, with no reply (surprise, surprise), but I’ll put the same query to you: any evidence for that claim?

Heward-Belle heroics help Sydney past Adelaide, Sky Blues go top

Any statistics to back up that claim?

Heward-Belle heroics help Sydney past Adelaide, Sky Blues go top

As a Sydney fan, I agree. Was pretty sure it would’ve been given.

What resources do the police have at their disposal to investigate such matters, does anyone know?

Another commenter mentioned that it’s costly and resource-heavy. Not condoning the abuse by any means, but at a certain point do players accept it is an inevitable aspect of social media platforms, and take a ‘sticks and stones’ approach to future incidents?

Zverev continues his run of disappointing exits from slams.

The battle of the servers: Will Zverev or Shapovalov prevail?

So much talent. I’m glad Nick has cleaned up his act – well, to some extent – but his attitude towards his craft could still be improved a lot. He’s capable of winning a slam, I have no doubt.

What comes next for Nick Kyrgios?

It’s a good point, but Broady also said some of the crowd’s ‘banter’ crossed the line, and Kyrgios admitted his role in creating what he himself described as a “zoo”.

So, while context is important, I don’t believe any of the above detracts from the central point of the piece.

The AO, tennis fans and Nick Kyrgios should all be embarrassed

Things went too far last night, but I think there is room for atmosphere in tennis.
As long as you’ve got a competent umpire in the chair, I don’t see why a balance between the fans showing their emotions and the players being able to play without being subject to anything that disrupts their game to any significant extent can’t be struck.
As for Nick, well, if he hasn’t grown up by now, I don’t think there’s much chance he will any time soon.

The AO, tennis fans and Nick Kyrgios should all be embarrassed

If that’s a serious question, the Open began yesterday and yes, at least on the men’s side, all the best players are here bar a certain Serbian.

What time does Nick Kyrgios play at the Australian Open and how can you watch it

Summed up by the two previous commenters. Blatant disregard for the rules.

In defence of Djokovic: Australians have never given Novak the respect he deserves

Agree with a lot of this, and I’ve previously written an article with a similar sentiment. This time, however, I just can’t side with Novak. He has to be vaccinated if he wants to play the Australian Open, or present a genuine, legitimate case for an exemption.

I can’t support him on this one.
