Outstanding.

TELL US: What will the headlines be after State of Origin Game 2?

Great to have you back, Jay! NBA in serious need of some third and fourth contenders for next year or it’s going to get very boring very quickly

Unstoppable and perfect: Golden State reclaim the title

Breathtaking read Geoff.

From London Bridge to Edgbaston, there's no separating sport and politics

Thanks man, I really did try with this – means a lot when people recognise it once in a while. xoxoxo.

CSIRO REPORT: NSW-born people that barrack for QLD are "weak" and "deadset flogs"

I’ve spoken to Morgan, and she confirmed that she did not.

I’ve already asked Malc for a Royal Commission.

Cheers Sheek, appreciate the thoroughness of your response! And I think I agree with you, I’m very cautiously optimistic…

TELL US: Is the new Super Rugby format a change for the better?

It’s a blessing and a curse 😉

Hahaha I do vividly remember coming back to the article, seeing 50+ comments after about 15 minutes and thinking “oh dear god.” Great piece, refreshing to see some notes on actual rugby rather than administration after the past week!

A plan for rugby rehabilitation

He’s a home-track bully, I agree – but we’re on our home track!

Tell us: Who makes your way-too-early Australian Ashes side

Dane, I dare say this is some of your finest work.

I love you, Matt Renshaw

Great to have you on board, Tim – and I think tightening up tackling laws would surely lead to faster games and more points. Personally I’m not entirely on board with Lethlean’s obsession with ultra-high scoring affairs. I think the GF proved how absorbing football can be even if neither team makes it to the magic 100. Goals suddenly become more precious and valuable – I just don’t think the game’s in need of some sort of existential transformation.

Want a higher-scoring AFL? Tell the umps to blow the whistle more

Have already pre-purchased knee-pads for protracted prayer sessions.

Tell us: Who should play the first Test and how the hell do we beat India?

This is a completely foolproof plan. No need to see anymore answers – comments closed, we’re done here guys.

I would still pick Rodgers before I pick Brady, but I can no longer argue with the stats. GOAT.

You tried to convince us to like the Patriots a few weeks ago, Jay, but I still couldn’t do it. After the SB though, I have to admit, I’d come around,

Flawed but perfect: The Super Bowl was Tom Brady’s masterpiece

In the midst of all the anti-beard comments, I’d just like to go on record saying I’m proudly pro-beard. Maybe it’s because I’m genetically incapable of growing one myself, but mostly because it makes you look like Hank Scorpio and that brings me endless joy.

The Roar says a fond farewell to Managing Editor, Patrick Effeney

Really well said Digger – almost 200 articles later, hard to believe that you ever hesitated! I think the opportunities that sports-lovers have to really get involved and be part of such a special community are unmatched in Australia and Paddy’s been right at the centre of it.

Thank you Paddy

“Jarryd Hayne”. 10/10.

Tell us your way-too-early AFL and NRL season 2017 predictions

People gravely underestimate the value of defeating yourself before a series – so good to see the boys in tip-top shape.

Australia shaping nicely for India after impressing itself in warm-up

Ah, Jobe Watson shooting for the never-before-seen ‘Revenge Brownlow’!

Tell us your way-too-early AFL and NRL season 2017 predictions

Bulldogs dropping to 10th is an enormous call. Love the boldness. Will be fascinating to see how Eagles goes up north, I’m rootin’ for him.

RIP The Dab (2015-2016)

Ken, while this article was sensational. I’m pretty upset that I now know that Gillon has dabbed. I didn’t know that before and I was much better off for it.

RIP The Dab (2015-2016)

Hit the nail on the head Josh. Some very watchable games this week, great to see the improvements happening so quickly.

Skills up, scoring too! Five talking points from AFL Women's Round 2

Apologies for the confusion. Meant to be two completely and unrelated sections but it’s hard to fit all of that in the title!
