Ok, I will just write puff pieces from now on.
I mentioned his origin record but his form for 3 years on big money has been terrible

How do you know I live in a glass house ?

Jack Birds form was very sketchy before injury and he has been tried in numerous positions to try and get him to work
Mal was never in that type of form

A team of the NRL's most disappointing players

Good points, Dirk seems contagious

A team of the NRL's most disappointing players

Definitely – prob was in the 2017 version. I’m sure he’s on small coin now

A team of the NRL's most disappointing players

Yeah, he hasn’t shown much

more than anyone else?

Can SBW still be at his best despite his age?

fantastic

Wallabies coach happy to see Sonny Bill playing in the NRL

i think a new coach is needed, but there needs to be more go in admin and management. good to finally see some juniors coming through.

Has Paul McGregor done enough to survive?

easy, make the cellar dwellers from QLD move to regional NSW

NRL seeking travel exemption after Queensland closes border to Sydney

the PGA tour is up and going in the USA. why stop a tournament here in 4 months time?

BREAKING: Australian Open postponed

well said barry, i hate defending the roosters but you are correct

If Sonny Bill Williams returns to the NRL, the Roosters have to suffer (at least a little bit)

i think he is still in the team.

Sonny Bill Williams to the Roosters is just another marketing stunt by the NRL

agree

Sonny Bill Williams to the Roosters is just another marketing stunt by the NRL

hes getting squeezed in for minimal money. you think he wants to win a premiership or play for a team coming nearly last? maybe it is the players decision?

dont waste your time with these 2 , wolly. not much between the ears. steveng – seek help

Which superpower is in faster decline: America or Queensland rugby league?

wests tigers new players – you mean like Harry grant? the current leader of the dally m voting?

Sonny Bill Williams to the Roosters is just another marketing stunt by the NRL

wow, i do not like SBW but this is some misconceived hatchet job. first article about nrl by a self confessed AFL fan. you say you are an journalism student?

you have your sources? know players and their managers?

Ben Hunt is now the highest paid starting nine in NRL history

i think Novak needs to look up the meaning of witch hunt

Djokovic accuses critics of “witch hunt”

some horrible suggestions. lets put them on normal wages?

D-Day for Paul McGregor comes this Sunday

100% from weidler or from his manager?

D-Day for Paul McGregor comes this Sunday

i get the point of your article but its based on the back of unverified numbers. Yesterday you quoted Danien Cooks salary as being 1.125m per year 100% and called the Melbourne Storm crooks for not verifying and publishing salaries. This is completely false, all salary numbers are private. the sources of reported salaries are
1) The club they are leaving. the old club always suggests a large number so it looks like they had no choice to let a player go. the 1.2 mil for Hunt was reported by the Broncos. when Jack Bird left the sharks, some claimed 750k and the Sharks leaked 1 mil
2) the players agents – they leak a high as number as possible to make themselves look good, if you believe this group of people (isaac moses etc) then you are not getting the truth
3) news limited journalists such as Bulldog and Bizz or Channel 9 Danny Weidler. these gossip mongers need to keep the player managers onside as they are a great source of information for clickbait stories. Once printed, the number becomes gospel (like Hunt and 1.2m) for the next 20 years

it would be good if the NRL officially reported salaries to remove confusion and false information. instead we rely on gossip journalists and player managers

I do take your point that Api is probably on unders. He has been a good NRL players but keeps running into opponents for his position. Luke at souths, segeyaro at penrith first time and Fainu at the Sea eagles. finally he has a spot locked in this year and is proving his worth

Ben Hunt is now the highest paid starting nine in NRL history

Another good article Mary. good content plus you have a great ability to trigger those somehow get offended by the Opals

Australian Opals 'Rise up' against racism

i dont think comparisons with NBA and NFL are apt. what % of AFL players have been indigenous? (10%).

both the NFL and NBA have been african american dominated for 40 years, thats why you see their media representation the way it is.

Do black lives really matter in the AFL?

agree, but i dont think Jake Turpin is breathing down his neck

Ben Hunt needs to accept his best position is hooker

great summation Barry

The sports media must promote inclusivity
