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.

Which we belittle but the guys ranked as high in soccer as Maloney in league could probably buy the NRL 10 times over.

We talk about expansion, but we’re such a myopic game.

If you think rugby league’s ‘gone soft’, you’re wrong

The “overreaction” from my point of view was policing outcomes rather than risks.

If you punish outcomes versus actions then you’re not about preventing bad outcomes just about vengeance

“The other guy charged has been very quiet, guess if you’re a low profile player the media doesn’t care.”

No they don’t. But one who lives by a media sword can hardly lament his death by it.

De Belin drops Federal Court appeal over no-fault stand down rule

Straw man to say this is supposed to stop rape.

The coach aspect is a reach as his performance should only be judged by the talent on hand.

Not saying it’s true that they are judged that objectively, but the core issue there isn’t the stand down it is the ineffective process for assessing coaches.

Basically that’s asking the NRL to compensate coaches for board ineffectiveness.

Isn’t effectively the same thing?

So if they’d given it to Cam to then pass on we’d be fine?

Companies routinely give gifts after 20 years and it isn’t a comparable achievement in an office.

Damn I went too fast in my delorean and ended up in 1985.

On board with 5-7?

He’s got the wrong board in 7 and has no hope in hades of getting 6 through a western legal system

I was confused by much of it but then realised when you said “save the NRL” you meant save it from a slow painful death!

Steve Smith is not the only player in the Australian Test side

Um no the article shows him as an outlier.

So rather than belittle others knowledge perhaps read the article you are rebutting rather than respond from a position of abject ignorance.

How I learned to relax and admire the Roosters

Hilarious Max.

Apparently in 2019 you can only work in the suburb you grew up in

How I learned to relax and admire the Roosters

It was, but having one of the largest % of “one club” players means you can make the mistake.

The mistake so many perennial under achieving clubs make is giving up incumbents to over pay mid level guys.

Maloney is also quite disruptive.

He’s like the crazy hot girl, the pain seems worth but at some point you snap.

How I learned to relax and admire the Roosters

They pay mid level players and then don’t have the money to keep their juniors.

Also those overseas markets already have established sports.

There’s nothing particularly innovative about league to suggest it could be disruptive so basically we’re taking a mature product into a mature market against entrenched brands with more capital.

If it’s just to spruce it up for existing league fans then fine, but the global dominance of league is as likely as Fiji declaring the next world war and winning

Five changes that can grow rugby league’s global footprint

Not JUST because of Smith but when one guy is routinely involved in 40% of your runs in an 11 man team it’s hard to suggest he isn’t the lynchpin.
