We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Gallen knows what taking on a new high profile job is about

What the heck do you mean by this!?

Official: Kevin Walters quits Maroons immediately to coach Broncos

Agreed.

I’ve never met a coach who had a “proven track record” before getting into the coaching gig.

You take a gamble with ALL head coach picks. Sometimes they pay off in spades, other times they don’t.

You don’t bag the board for a hire. You bag them for extending a contract of a failed hire.

So, yes – the Broncos board took a considered gamble and it didn’t come off. It happens in footy. We can’t see the future. Unlucky. Maybe Walters will do better.

The Dragons on the other hand gave Mary McGregor a contract extension after five rounds in 2019 when he presented no credible case to earn it, and the coaches market hadn’t yet fired up. That is the board’s fault.

Yes, because this year is 2018.

Richmond versus the field: Can anyone topple the Tigers in finals?

7.

Collingwood are gonna get creamed.

Don,

I’m a fair man.

I’ve agreed with your comments when appropriate.

But when you post delusions, I’m going to respond with the time honoured simpsons response. It’s gentle banter.

Richmond versus the field: Can anyone topple the Tigers in finals?

They’ll be hard to beat, but remember they bottled it in 2018 (when they were a more dominant side than now) and so it can happen again.

A domestic rugby competition probably involving NZ teams is NOT a domestic competition.

It’s an absolute acknowledgement that a domestic competition without NZ teams is not remotely viable.

But as you say, if one was to get up, there just won’t be the money it once had.

Super Rugby as we know it all but over after South Africa votes to quit, send teams to Europe instead

Krusty is coming. Krusty is coming. Krusty is coming.

The only answer is independent physicians appointed to each game…whatever the cost.

They – and only they – should have the authority to sideline a player.

How the NRL is failing the concussion test

Nah – put up a line…if the ball goes in front of it it’s forward.

Screw this “momentum” or “hands were facing back” crap.

NRL mull bunker changes for 2021

Yeah, radio commentators dissect it and stay calm, while on TV Phil Gould has a stroke.

that would still require broadcasters to go back to pre-COVID pay.

Which 2020 finalists will not be back in 2021?

fine.

Cooked Chooks make NRL semis a five-team fight

Says the bloke who spells Souths as Sou ffs at every opportunity.

Cooked Chooks make NRL semis a five-team fight

He really has been rubbish.

Never fear, the sombreros will apply for an exemption to replace him with Jason Taumololo for the finals.

Cooked Chooks make NRL semis a five-team fight

Fantastic, sir. Fantastic.

There is no chance that there will be 28 rounds next year.

Which 2020 finalists will not be back in 2021?

I’m trying to contain my shock that you think that.

One question mark for each finalist ahead of Week 1

See, I disagree a tad.

Last year and 2013 were the only prelims – indeed even finals matches in general – under Scott where they played their absolute best and were just beaten by a better team.

Otherwise they have a remarkable record of disappearing entirely for a quarter or two and letting the game go.

And that’s before we mention his near deranged ability to change the game plan or starting 22 moments before the first bounce.

I don’t trust he has the ability to make them any better than they are.

Especially if it’s back to hubs, 28 rounds, and 4-day turnarounds.

What fake news website did you pull that from?

Which 2020 finalists will not be back in 2021?

So, never then. Hahaha.

Why do some batsmen get dropped more than others?

Yeah, I have to agree. I really enjoy his AFL commentary. He dials back the hyperbole a shade or two and is indeed unbiased.

He’s just a horrific cricket commentator.

Why do some batsmen get dropped more than others?

Good.

Cause it was a freaking jamberoo before the bear patrol.

NRL mull bunker changes for 2021

yes. He, Michael Slater and Mark Taylor for the Australians.

Gavaskar and Shastri for the Indians – who genuinely believe any chance missed by an Indian would also be missed by superman.

Otherwise, the other commentators are pretty fair.
