Awful – just damned awful.
I’m a Cronulla fan and I loved Greenie and saw him at the Old Boys’ Day.
Shocked and immensely saddened.
RIP mate.

'We cannot find the words': Tributes flow for former star player, premiership-winning coach Paul Green

Even the scumbags in the corrupt NSW LNP government admit they had a deal and they’re walking away from it – even those crooks.
It seems you share the shame dishonourable characteristics – next time you have a tradie come around try your ‘flexible’ approach on deals with him – it may leave you in a hospital bed.
Speaking of the potential for physical injury – still no comment from you on the Leichardt Oval incident I see.
Such an inconvenient event for you – no wonder you refuse to engage on it.
“Running” along indeed.

Terrific column as always.

MICHAEL HAGAN: NRL soap opera keeps us entertained but only strong survive this time of year

They had an initial deal – fact.
They agreed to alter it – fact.
NSW government has welched on the deal – fact.
Still ignoring the incident at Leichardt I see.

PS. No comment on the Leichardt Oval incident?
Bit inconvenient for the no cash for stadiums brigade – for those few capable of critical thinking at any rate.

You wrote: “Pretty amateur level “deal” where it was nothing more than a verbal discussion.”
I quoted: “The cited deal is, in fact, a formalised heads of agreement negotiated during the previous administration and signed by both the state government and the NRL.”
A signed deal.
Get it?
Ask an adult to explain it you.

Was not just a verbal agreement – it was a signed heads of agreement:
“The cited deal is, in fact, a formalised heads of agreement negotiated during the previous administration and signed by both the state government and the NRL.”

I suggest you do some research before you open your big, dumb mouth. LOL.

He made a deal and the government won’t honour it – how is that his fault?
The game is in great shape and he did a superb job during Covid.
The game is lucky to have him.

Hey genius, any response to this? I wonder if the ambos had to give “oxygen” to any of those hurt in the collapse at Leichardt? What do you reckon guru?:

A Sydney mayor who has lashed out at Dominic Perrottet for alleged rugby stadium “pork barrelling” has reacted with shock after a grandstand collapsed at the weekend.

A disturbing video shows the moment a railing at a Leichhardt Oval grandstand collapsed under the weight of fans attending a schoolboy rugby match.

A number of fans went tumbling over the stand like dominoes and face planted onto concrete metres below.

Paramedic crews at the game treated some minor injuries but no one was taken to hospital, NSW Ambulance reported.

Inner West mayor Darcy Byrne, who has campaigned for funding to upgrade the Leichhardt Oval, issued a media release just days before the collapse, accusing the state government of pork barrelling for choosing to spend upward of $300 million to build Penrith Stadium despite numerous commitments to fund suburban sports grounds.

I love it when stupidity , such as yours, is so spectacularly illustrated.

Inner West mayor Darcy Byrne, who has campaigned for funding to upgrade the Leichhardt Oval, issued a media release just days before the collapse, accusing the state government of pork barrelling for choosing to spend upward of $300 million to build Penrith Stadium despite numerous commitments to fund suburban sports grounds.

“Dominic Perrottet is happy to spend $300 million in Stuart Ayres seat, to build a shiny, new Panthers Stadium for the exclusive use of one club,” Mr Byrne said, referring to the outgoing trade minister and MP for Penrith.

“But the Wests Tigers, and all of the other senior and junior, men’s and women’s Rugby League, Soccer and Rugby Union teams who regularly use Leichhardt Oval get nothing.”

The Council had plans to use part of a planned $250m slated for suburban sports grounds to upgrade and expand their grandstands.

“I call on Mr Perrottet to explain why this shocking pork-barrelling continues while most footy fans across Sydney get dudded,” the Labor mayor said.

Leichhardt Oval hosts more than 50 games a year across various rugby codes while Penrith Stadium will host just 11 Penrith Panthers games a year.

Mr Byrne took to his social media following the grandstand collapse to share his shock over the dangerous incident.

“The collapse of grandstand seating at Leichhardt Oval today during a schoolboy rugby match was incredibly dangerous,’ he said.

“The footage is shocking.”

Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne called out Premier Perrottet for ‘dudding’ Sydney footy fans.
Inner West councillor Philippa Scott jumped into the comment section to direct her anger at the state government.

“I am heartened to know that the spectators were sent home with only minor injuries, however I am incandescently angry at how our inner west infrastructure is treated by the state government,” she said.

“We are being smashed by not being a marginal Liberal seat.”

Mayor Byrne said his team are working to make the site safe and will fully investigate the safety risks it raises.

Australia Rugby League boss Peter V’landys this week accused Premier Dominic Perrottet of reneging on his agreement after he redirected funds set aside for sports grounds to flood recovery.

Premier Dominic Perrottet has denied backflipping on his deal to upgrade Brookvale Oval, Leichhardt Oval and Shark Park.

“We won’t give up. We’re going to make sure the fans will get the facilities,” Mr V’Landys told 2GB radio this week.

A tense 24 hours of negotiations on Tuesday night had the ARL boss and the government tussling over whether the grand final would be moved from Sydney to Queensland.

Mr V’landys said in a radio interview at the weekend negotiations were ongoing and that a decision on the grand final would be made on Monday.

“We‘re still negotiating with the NSW government, we don’t accept the excuse they’ve given us,” he said.

“The (ARL) commission will meet on Monday to decide the strategy it’s going to use … we don’t want to punish the NSW fans because the government isn’t meeting its commitments.”

Spot on.
Paul Suttor “expert” (apparently) isn’t the only one either – the thread is full of fellow “experts” parroting the same NSW government spin.
How embarrassing – for them.

Yep, of course the grounds don’t need upgrades:

PS. Shrek, I see you’re an expert on all sports – quelle surprise.
Also, what a smackdown from you!
Ouch! LOL.
If only I had even just a tiny bit of respect for your opinion.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

What a comeback! LOL.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

I have no issues with most of what you’ve listed, especially scrums and captain’s challenges.
Perhaps rugby league isn’t the game for you.
Check out the AFL if you want to watch a crap “game”.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

Admitted what?

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

If you don’t think V’landys has done a top job since he took over as the game’s boss then you clearly haven’t been watching.

Tell me – when it comes to the “focus groups” you “run for the NSW government” LOL – do you use the two-way focus group or the dual moderator focus group?

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

I read your reports on the focus groups you conduct for the NSW government! LOL.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

Oh no – not the nasty words again!
And I thought we were pals, mates, cobbers, fellow lovers of NSW government focus groups! LOL LOL.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

Oh no! Don’t go! I want to hear about the “focus groups” you claim you “run for the NSW government”.
Please, please, pretty please.
I’ll bet it’s a fascinating tale.
But I do understand why you’d want to flee – I can’t believe you’ve hung around this long – talk about playing with a shocking hand! Stupid is as stupid does.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

I didn’t “claim” to be anything except not being a Redcliffe fan.
Get a grip man!
But while you’re at it – please tell me about those “focus groups” you “run for the NSW government”?

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

But please don’t enrol just yet – this is just too much fun.

Political grandstanding abounds as stadium stoush gets ugly - but it's correct call to cancel suburban upgrades

You should think about quitting “running focus groups for the NSW government” – THAT IS A CLASSIC – COMEDY GOLD – WILL NEVER GET OLD – and go to a TAFE and learn spelling and grammar and punctuation and also do a course on not opening what is a very dumb mouth.
