Jesus I hate typing on the phone… Excuse that tripe above! Not even close to what I was going for! Where is the facepalm emoji?

Why the 2020 NRL premiership will be forever tainted

“Bad tempered alpha male hate to loss amateur golfer’s”!
This is a show I would definitely watch!
A couple of go pros, mike up the carts and you have at least 1/2 hr of gold footage and rampage!

Why the 2020 NRL premiership will be forever tainted

This sucks but we will be lucky to be watching the cricket in the summer…. They should set up cameras at public golf courses and we can watch amateurs loss their sh@t. That is about as good as going to get!

Why the 2020 NRL premiership will be forever tainted

I haven’t got the time. RN is my job not my initials, but can someone please write the following articles for the downtime;
– Hate to Love, Players you hated that you ended up loving
– Love to Hate, Players you loved and ended up hating
– Technicaly Correct, best one on one defenders
– Locked Up, the best players that have served time
– Purple Patch, the best purple patches of the the last 20
– Spares, what dead player should your team clone
– Reconstruction, players that never reached potential due to injury
– T2, who are the most durable players that can’t be put down
– Bariatric, big boys who got the job done
– Anomaly, players where statistical analysis can’t represent their true value

Thanks that would be great.

As sport goes into lockdown, what do you want to read on The Roar?

I love the footy and would love to see some games this year but it won’t happen.

The NRL will be back, better than ever

The private hospitals will be used to do the urgent case surgies (life threatening) that the public can’t do due to influx of patients. If this goes as every expert believes it will go every bed in every hospital will be gold. Orthopaedic non urgent will not get done… Potentially career ending, but not life threatening.

When life’s great distractor can no longer distract

They need to suspend yesterday for multiple reasons… Here is another one! Injuried players often require hospital beds. Beds and medical attention wasted that is wholly preventable. Between the codes even if thats only 4 bed days a week that will still be too many.

When life’s great distractor can no longer distract

Galacticly stupid…

NRL to meet Australia’s top medico

There’s names on this site that I have been reading and enjoying for around 3years. Not all these names will be here in a few months.
Shut it all down right now before round 2!

Warriors refuse to guarantee they'll stay in Australia during NZ lockdown

Morgan’s comments were thoughtful and honest. I agree the season should be shut down. One point not discussed which I think is important….
This is a collision sport which sees multiple players each weekend getting injuries, some of which require surgery and rehab. 1 this puts players (and families) at increased risk of infection 2 is a small but unnecessary burden on services which will be at breaking point

NRL to lock fans out from Round 2 after coronavirus grips nation

If the msg read “are you at TAFE today?” Would there be a problem?

Bulldogs refuse to answer any questions on suspended players in baffling press conference

Thanks for the cows article… Agree with most points although I think you actually meant Sequela not soliloquy!
“Typically, a sequela is a chronic condition that is a complication which follows a more acute condition.”
I think this term sums up Greens selections better!

Cowboys selection soliloquy

Doesn’t he have a form of arthritis which I assume requires medicines which may predispose him to injury. I feel for him but I think he should take a long hard look at whether long term this is worth it.

UPDATE: Scans confirm the worst as Bird injures ACL

Thanks for the article!

I like Capewell…. every team needs a reliable fill a hole player!

Players I never rated as highly as others did… Laurie Daley and Sam Burgess!

In regards to Kurt Mann… he does some things sometimes that make me think their is alot more player than what we have seen. I could be wrong but I wouldn’t be surprised if he went on a bit of purple patch at some stage!

Mark Geyer is wrong about Kurt Capewell

One of my favourite things about Manly last year was their young hooker. Pity about his off season! Was really looking forward to how he was going to develop… I don’t think Levi is anywhere near a ballpark replacement. Anyway… hope they go well, really enjoyed their brand of footy last year and I love Jurbo! Who doesn’t right.

Sea Eagles hovering under the radar once more

The boy is a talent… I wish him luck where ever he ends up. I still can’t fathom why Souths would let him go!

Israel Folau and the governing bodies who are powerless to govern

This ex home and away dude has a neurological reason (Huntingtons disease) for hitting a cop and is still in jail… What’s Scott’s reason?

Curtis Scott charged with assaulting a police officer

Look… actually I don’t really care, just bored with off season and happy to comment on a non Mitchell story.

Like Laurie Daley before him, will Jack Wighton now become a star?

Like Laurie Daley before him, will Jack Wighton now become a star?

I apologise only for spelling Wighton’s name wrong in my first post.
Go through the Daley highlight reel in your mind’s eye…. it’s pretty thin when compared to other great players. I never said he was bad player, just that he is tremendously overrated! Which I stand behind!

Like Laurie Daley before him, will Jack Wighton now become a star?

Hang on… Massively might be underselling. Daley was/is the most overrated player ever in the history of the game.

Like Laurie Daley before him, will Jack Wighton now become a star?

I think Whighton is already a better player than Daley ever was. Daley was always massively overrated!

If Smith retired I don’t think Croft goes. Smith was certainly the issue here, not whether the kid could could play! He has great potential… I think he will have a really good season!

The Broncos see Brodie Croft as a mini Cooper Cronk, but the Storm just see Brodie Croft

Just read young Doueihi has been by given permission to negotiate due to the signing of LM… Hope the cows pick him up, this kid has talent.

"I'm not GI": Latrell to blaze his own trail at the Bunnies

I really have no strong opinion on the anthem…!
However, I would like to wish all a happy new year and sincerely hope the fires aren’t in your vicinity! To those affected all the best in recovery of property and spirit!
Hears to the coming 2020 season and may your team stay injury free and be there at the pointy end!
Actually the anthem should never be sung… Just get to kick off already!

No need to play the anthem before the NRL All Stars game
