Musings of a frustrated sportsman



Couldn’t agree more DIanne. Well said.

An open letter to Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios

Absolutely dreaming. There are just some things that shouldn’t change. The Grand Final is the one of these. Sorry – but no way in hell. What are we going to do next….move the Boxing Day test away from the MCG?

Time to move the grand final away from the MCG

true points Mushi.

Dellacqua's disgraceful treatment speaks volumes for Aussie sport

Yeah it’s a shame Scott. The media have a lot to answer for in terms of how society views sportswomen. I don’t believe it’s the other way around.

fair point matt. Just pointing out that I think it’s time things changed.

More time is spent focussing on Stosur’s early exit – again – than is on the Dellacqua win.

Great article Outsider. Well written.

You don’t know what you got (till it’s gone)

There is absolutely no way in hell that he should be the next captain

Quade could be the next Wallabies captain

Thanks Louis. Glad you enjoyed it.

Bravo to Jonathan Trott for facing his demons

Hang on a second. One minute people are moaning about the fact that we have no stability and no experience in the team. Now, people are whinging about the fact that they are “journeymen”…..Come on! Lets get realistic!

SPIRO: Clarke at 5, Johnson taking wickets keys to Ashes success

Great article mate. well done.

Forget the search for a new Warne and let Lyon roar

Couldn’t agree more!

Socceroos fans must be realistic in wake of Osieck sacking

Couldn’t agree more. Well said.

Sonny Bill is not the Messiah (he's just a very talented boy)

For the Rabbitohs to be a chance, they have to sort out the issues that are in the top few inches. Their minds and the self-belief are their own worst enemies.

NRL 2014: Who looks most likely for next year?

Apologies all for the double up on Tamou. I’d have Fifita in there starting.

Should the Roosters have more players in the Kangaroos side?

Interesting point there Red Kev. Hard to argue with as well. It boggles the mind.

Jake White joins Super Rugby's Sharks

Funny is not the word I’d use….

Jake White joins Super Rugby's Sharks

NZmate – There will undoubtedly be a thousand of the roosters boys in the NZ team….which will probably mean they’ll win the world cup haha

Should the Roosters have more players in the Kangaroos side?

Couldn’t agree more – he is fast running out of chances.

Warner in trouble yet again after grade cricket no-show [UPDATE]

AAC isn’t a wing – he’s an outside centre. Rock Solid.

SPIRO: The brilliant Wallabies winners are finally grinners

Everyone loves a ranga. Go Tom Symons.

Roosters' discard Symonds has a point to prove

Great article David. Really accurate assessment of the current situation and the sanity that has prevailed.

Genia back, O'Connor gone: Sanity, finally, at the ARU

Great idea in theory…….

Would a cross-code 'super club' work for the Waratahs?

A great article Spiro. Couldn’t agree more with much of what you’ve said.

SPIRO: O'Connor must grow up if he wants to be a Wallaby again

The Changa: SBW
The Jacko: Tom Symons
The Junior: Michael Jennings
The Villa: Hard to argue with Justin Horo
The Smithy: Matt Balin
The Rudder: Gotta be George Rose or Daniel Mortimer
The Satts: The Wolfman Williams or possibly Watmough
The Doom: Junior Moors for the Sharks

Picking the characters who will arise out of the NRL Grand Final
