No. Teams live up to their means. Give them more money and they’ll spend more money

The greatest NRL home ground advantage is in the spreadsheets

Breeding is part of the industry. Owners are doing exactly what you and I would do. Trapeze Artist is getting 90k, The Autumn Sun 70k, risk free, little chance of injury. Trapeze Artist will need to serve just 18 mares to match the winners prize money for the TJ Smith.

Redoutes Choice added more to the local racing industry in his first 2 years in the barn then anything he would have done had he raced on

It’s not the breeders that have stopped breeding the stayers, its the buyers who stopped buying them. I’d rather see a race with the field like this years TJ Smith and last years Everest then watch Count Chivas plodding along beating Skybeau and Joss Sticks in an Adelaide Cup. You have to remember that breeders aren’t just breeding for the Australian industry, but are exported to Asia and South Africa, that is what their buyers want too. New Zealand haven’t gone backwards by breeding sprinters, they have done so because they sell horse to Asia at the first possible oppurtunity

Who will be racing's next champion?

Mystic Journey won’t win another group 1 race

Who will be racing's next champion?

Sunlight won’t do anything more. Won a low-rating Coolmore, beating a couple of non-winners, won a handicap on the limit in another G1 and beat Spright and ellizacoom in another. Well beaten in the TJ and Manikato

I don’t think our author had heard of former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson.

Tough questions are lacking in the racing industry

relevant to my comment how?

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

A wildly misinformed article. Antitrust laws alone kill your premise, not to mention Title IX. You’ll have to pay members of the football team the same as members of the mens basketball team, and the same as the womens ten pin bowling team

Why it's time to pay college athletes

It’s not an expansion. Brisbane is an exhausted market

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

Look at the 17 listed for teams this week. There simply isn’t 2 players per club of standard to give up. Super League players are in the Super League because they are not NRL standard

They don’t want to prop up clubs, they have seen the ponzi scheme the AFL are running in western Sydney and the Gold Coast. How much do you think a Fijian team will cost? And what income will they bring in?

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

There are not enough players for 16 teams, let alone any more

NRL expansion: The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised

Where are these players then? They aren’t playing NRL or NSW Cup or Qld Cup

Longchamp for me.

Flemington isn’t great

US tracks are generally garbage. Santa Anita is the same standard as Gosford

The world's six greatest race courses

I think Murray only goes 1 if Arizona can get the right trade for Rosen. If they don’t I expect OAK to trade up, they have 3 1st rounders they can use as collateral

The first 5 will probably be Murray, Haskins, Bosa, Williams and Allen. It just depends which order. There will be trades to move up. Gray , Sweat and Oliver will definitely go top 10. Denver will waste their pick taking a tall QB

The players to watch at the 2019 NFL Draft

“How can one side be punished so harshly while another isn’t”

Easy, the extent of the crime

If the Sharks title isn’t stripped then the Storm must get theirs back

Melbourne Storm
Brisbane Broncos
Sydney Roosters
St. George Illawarra Dragons
Parramatta Eels
Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles
Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
Canberra Raiders
Penrith Panthers
North Queensland Cowboys
Newcastle Knights
South Sydney Rabbitohs
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
New Zealand Warriors
Wests Tigers
Gold Coast Titans

The 2019 NRL ladder as voted by you

And now the Giants are making Gruden look like a genius in comparison

Touching down the New England Patriots way

Gruden lets Mack go, says he isn’t worth the $23.5 million. Signs a WR, who is 3 years older then Mack, for $19 million a season.

Do you know what contracts are? Awards? Collective Bargaining Agreements?

Conditions in one role, industry or organization are. It the same as the next

When sport attacks civil liberties: The NRL’s no-fault stand down

What has gone unmentioned is that Greenburg is the deciding factor on what is a suspension and what is not. He doesn’t have the greatest track record in this regard. Remember he decided to take no action against Ben Barba a few years ago, after apparently looking at all the evidence. Apparently bruises aren’t evidence. That hasn’t turned out well.

Then he decided to give a character reference to a player facing court. He doesn’t see the hypocrisy in this? Did doing this mean that players thought they had a green light? If Greenburg won’t punish Inglis, but actively try and prevent him being held accountable, will he take it easy on them?

Players who are found guilty in court need to have severe punishments handed to them by the league. But useless administrators need to be held accountable too

What has he done to bring the game into disrepute? An allegation is simply an allegation.

Let the courts decide

When sport attacks civil liberties: The NRL’s no-fault stand down

It’s been done to death, but there are actually two debates – should the NRL suspend him and could they suspend him.

The latter needs to be answered first, and the hearing that was supposed to begin today (NRL are useless so it didn’t) and the one the RLPA are preparing (NRL in breach of CBA) will determine that. After those legalities have been sorted then the matter of if he should can be sorted.

The NRL should have renegotiated the CBA in the last couple of weeks, and public opinion would force the RLPA go along. Once ratified then suspend the players. Beattie cracked too easy under the media pressure

Why wasn’t his case heard today?

Classic Greenburg/Beattie NRL. Incompentant fools

What about existing sponsorships?

St George Bank have no right to, he has not been found in breach of his contract in way. Whether he does or not is irrelevant to his circumstances today

“Court documents also show de Belin stands to lose sponsorship deals, Blues selection chances from the ARLC and NRL’s “unconscionable conduct” which amounts to an unlawful restraint of trade.”

The money the NRL makes from its behaviour crackdown will easily finance the lawsuits

Yeh, you really don’t understand the subject at all, do you? It has zero to do with wrongful accusations or wrongful arrests, or the fact they are still getting paid
