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.

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.

Nice piece. I’ve often gone to Sydney FC games by myself when my mates weren’t available and must say, I enjoy the experience.

Army of one: The joy of going to the football solo

You’re still being cryptic, and it’s gone from ‘high six figures’ – which surely means 700k+ – to ‘several hundred grand’.

I don’t have any inside info, but if the number is more than 300k per season, I’d be shocked.

Wanderers risking it all on two-year Rodwell deal

I believe Josh was referring to the venerable and honourable Scott Morrison.

Qatar looks a long way off should the Socceroos lose tonight

Do you have a source for that?
One, I can’t imagine he had much leverage to demand such a figure, and two, I wouldn’t have thought WSW had much cap room left in any case.

Wanderers risking it all on two-year Rodwell deal

This is an intriguing signing, though I’m glad it wasn’t one of Corica’s.

Good point made about Robinson. He’s under a fair bit of pressure.

Wanderers risking it all on two-year Rodwell deal

You would, but the board are in an awkward spot. May is close with Cleary jnr and obviously has Ivan’s support.

May to face Panthers board over social media antics

I hope that’s sarcasm.

May to face Panthers board over social media antics

Exactly. Look at Sam Burgess or other high-profile players – they’re pretty close to untouchable. Needs to be a big, big scandal to bring them down.
The Dogs threw Lewis under the bus for an incredibly minor incident because he had no value. How many speakers could Sam Burgess steal without facing any repercussions?
How easily does something that trivial get swept under the rug if it’s a star involved?

We must all do better to address rugby league's harmful treatment of women

The better the player, the more they are allowed to get away with. This principle is widely accepted, and it may well be catching up to May sooner rather than later.

Good piece. For me, it has to come down to slams. The endurance and mental strength required to go all the way and strength of opponents blow ATP events out of the water.

He’s had an incredible start to the season. If he keeps it up, Liverpool’s campaign is looking bright indeed.

Murray, The Roar has covered this issue already and Mary typically covers rugby league, not football.

It is true that she covers a lot of women’s sport as well, but that doesn’t mean she has the time or resources to cover every single issue in women’s sport.

This seems like a bit of a hit job on someone who produces quality content for this site.

We must never forget that women's football is worth it

While it’s important that too much attention isn’t taken away from the upcoming A-League season, I’ve got to say this piece sounds dismissive of the issue.

Of course there are lots of positives in women’s football, but you can’t ignore the seriousness of the allegations and awful Matildas PR with “Just let the investigation show what it shows”.

Great job, Dimitri. Keep writing, mate.

A proper four-horse title race that goes into the final weeks would be great. Can’t remember the last season where more than two sides were genuine contenders.

You’d hope so. Not long now until the A-League is scheduled to kick off (I’m aware a delayed start is looking likely) and it’s been crickets so far.
