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.

Conceptually it’s fine my only thought would be the cap makes it difficult as teams would need to carry dead cap space to make it work.

The other way to ESL makes sense depending on the economics

Would the British loan system work in the NRL?

I don’t know – if we expand and allow globalised sport to cut our lunch I could definitely see league suffering a fate similar to Union.

It’ll survive but gee…. if it were a horse our Chairman would have sent it to the knackers

Where will the NRL be in ten years?

Will it be disastrous though?

Music and Movies are still being produced despite going through the same thing. I’d go a step further and say the change was an absolute boon for the consumer.

If professional sport needs to rebase it’s revenue expectations there will be hand wringing and claims of disaster from those invested in it but the consumers experience will likely be improved.

Just like music and theatre existed before it was lucrative so did sport. Or did I miss the billion dollar FTA agreement in 1908?

Biased…

He literally spelled out how he had formed his opinion of Castle before she took the post and then takes shots at her appearance based on his views of how a female leader “should” look.

I’m definitely not a Castle fan. But anyone who needs to stoop to insults about the make up of a CEO discards all credibility.

He’s delivered an eloquent, but ultimately vapid, assessment that was predetermined, unbalanced, sexist and lacks broader context.

Raelene Castle's tenure has been a failure – what else did RA expect?

Not enough hot takes.

Most of the “high profile” guys are basically trolls designed to get people angry and engaged with the platform.

That’s my question – how. Hope on it’s lonesome is not a strategy.

I feel like we looked at the 80s and went – they had jobs and this behavior stuff didn’t happen and ignored all the other differences in the two situations and come up with this smoke and mirrors misdirection of a strategy.

I see value for those that want to get a safety net away from football, but that already existed.

But for those that wouldn’t choose this I just don’t two four hour shifts will achieve what you “hope” for. The roles are likely to be cushy friends of the club and a great way for the wealthier clubs to attract young talent.

They’ll still get to go out at night and to end of season trips.

So again “how” what mystical element am I missing that is going to transform these wealthy idolised young men into wise sages?

It’s likely to further embed the sense of entitlement, like when a CEO’s kid “works on the front line”, as they are treated like royalty in the jobs.

Or the “training” will be the hours credit style that in reality can be 1 to 2 hours a week with club certification.

The NRL has done a terrible job of policing the salary cap with how it has treated breeches and the complete naivety of how they’ve openly incentivised teams to cheat.

There is nothing in the entire history of the NRL to suggest they have the capability to turn this into a meaningful policy

This new rule is one of the NRL's best ever moves

But does it do anything.

The reason prior generation were “grounded” was they had to work to make ends meet.

I struggle to see this imbuing the values we’re trying to impart because they came from the motivation for the job, not the job itself.

This new rule is one of the NRL's best ever moves

Fair enough, wonder how relevant it is.

Or if it’s the freakenomics parents book

I thought that was always the case, in fact haven’t consumption patterns shifted older in the last 10 years?

Is that even if she wore red lipstick and dyed her hair blonde?

Raelene Castle's tenure has been a failure – what else did RA expect?

What with a different shade of lipstick?

Why’s that AF because they didn’t handle it the way you would have despite you denigrating the idea of multiple possible outcomes.

Raelene Castle's tenure has been a failure – what else did RA expect?

Really Andy? You think that posted was a balanced approach to the topic at hand.

Heck you ended it with a parting shot on her appearance

Where’s the stats part in the article?

It sounds like the issue is the niggle not being policed.

The issue is why is slapping some guy a part of the game or the “rubbish on the face” tolerated. There’s nothing gladiatorial about it. Surely we could penalise it, the only reason it’s in the game is “because”.

Bit unfortunate that Kenny’s only solution is punch the bloke like an emotionally overwhelmed 12 year old .

Eels legend calls for NRL to scrap ‘no punch’ rule

Only issue is, if it doesn’t go out you’ve just given up 6 tackles with your team offside

Well to be fair the “Bad human” believes dissenting views should be accompanied by never ending torture of your soul…

Yep that’s basically the fundamental tenant of religious teaching methods.

The AFL got gifted something pretty special in terms of the Super League war.
