The Wizards' magic number is 54

With the Pacers facing a Lance Stephenson issue, the Bulls relying on Derrick Rose being healthy, the Cavs needing to get Kyrie Irving to play defence and work off the ball and the Heat down grading from LeBron James to Luol Deng, the team I’ve got a man crush on out east is the Wizards.

Same tactics from NSW, same result

The talk coming into Origin III was how Ricky Stuart had unlocked the secret of new rugby league. No more props, it was going to be Dutch total football forward packs with a slew of back rowers capable of offloads and wearing down the opposing big guys with angled runs.

The roar machine clearly didn’t like my first reply…

So how about:

Read what I actually wrote – in particular the “without rationale” part that you deliberately excluded.

Small-time thinking won’t achieve big-time goals

Because under any reasonable definition you are incorrect.

Also people are routinely stood down from professions, both explicitly and implicitly, and remain residents here.

So I think you have a different definition of “any” and “reasonable” to other English speaking people.

Any reasonable definition?

Well that’s going to up the asylum seeker intake globally.

Official: “Reason for seeking asylum”
Rando: “I breached the code of conduct and sued my employer so no longer can get a lucrative role in that industry”
Official: “Did they seize your assets or something”
Rando: “No I got a fat payment and random people just gave me money to fund my litigation!”
Official: “So criminal charges then?”
Rando: “Nope”
Official: “I don’t think you understand this process”

He wasn’t hounded out of the country.

He was unable to ply a very specific trade because he repeatedly and deliberately alienated himself from the potential employers, their stated codes of conduct and their end clients.

If you support organisations ability to have such codes of conduct, which Folau tacitly does through involvement in organised religion which have the ultimate code of conduct, you have to support the employers ability to effect the fact pattern you are objecting to.

But if you’d prefer a league which is more tolerant of racial and sexual oppression you are entitled to voice that with the NRL.

Then if you are correct and that this is the view of the majority of Australians you’ll be able to effect regressive change, it would be a commercial master stroke as you would tap into the “real” zeitgeist and kept the majority of Australian’s on board.

Jacko as I said, unless you have the details it’s not really informed discussion.

Why settle outside of reasons regarding merits of the case?

Well if the rationale was to remove the negative news cycle or bifurcation of the supporter base I could see that as reasonable.

Sometimes the court room victory is pyrrhic

Roosters should derail plans to face Folau

It’s not a principled stand though. It’s vacuous click bait.

He gave more life to the folau discussion by writing the article than the roosters ever could have.

Maybe he could solve your bigotry in at the same time.

also extrapolating limited anecdotal experience to apparently discredit volumes of peer reviewed study into sexuality isn’t “real world ” it’s just where bigots start their training.

Way to reframe the position. The trite “people have choices” is a ridiculous repositioning. To suggest that this us some thin end of the wedge on free will compounds your ever present ignorance and dishonesty.

I know many people who didn’t choose.

Including one who is no longer with us because of people like you.

You can’t say little reason and then acknowledge it is a risk. Expansion without rationale is a death sentence for businesses and a criminal breach of the directors duty.

I also love the misapplication of the stagnation reference.

To truely embrace anything from the “not growing then your dying” family of catch phrases (borrowed either from a business averse poet or a one business one cycle motivational speaker) then you are arguing for a change in the actual game not a trifling expansion of an existing product.

Small-time thinking won’t achieve big-time goals

I believe you are ignorant and dishonest to suggest such a thing.

Jacko you don’t lose your right to sue if was legal.

Without knowing the settlement it’s pretty hard to judge why either side settled.

Yeah but once credibility is at zero it’s zero risk

Yep, if he can hijack opinion using the platform of a world club challenge interview then we may as well succumb now.

What’s his next step up a Ukraine you tube channel with 5000 followers ?

Same here, I’m all for clubs and competitions being able to determine what represents their brand… but gee forcing the opponent.
Ironic that they’ve inserted the “standard you walk by” line when the staff are mailing in articles like this.
Clearly a folau quota from the new management to print this rubbish

Good analysis with metaphors for ease.

Personally i’d have split these into two articles as each side of the ball felt like a new thrust of writing.

Outrage over new rules for junior rugby league players

I’m still not going to apologise to Todd….

Todd Greenberg can't rule on Josh Reynolds and expect zero backlash

My unreserved apology.

The first articles I read on this had said charges consistent with Walker. That isn’t the case.

I’ve argued from a position of ignorance on this one.

Personally I find the nines pointless rubbish but hey if there’s enough interest all the best to those that enjoy it. If I was a club I’d devote about 0 time to it.

The lament around quality is more a progression thing.

If concept A lacks purpose or attraction to begin with why devote resources, which then further reduces the attraction.

You end up in a spiral of meh

Yeah Sydney has a terrible global reputation as a city.

We roosters fans will just have to cry ourselves to sleep cuddling all the premiership memorabilia from the past two years.
