If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away' [Henry David Thoreau]. I'm a bit of a sports addict, love competition.

I think he’s hanging out for your lot. The distant whispers I hear are that he’s near front of line.

Todd Payten eyes Cowboys coaching gig

Would you think that Payten is pretty confident given he’s knocked back a top coach gig??

I think you’d be close with your end result, Storm and Cam look like they have unfinished business – that premiership that’s been denied them the past few years. They’ll be hard to toss. On the other hand, it’s not beyond possibilities that chooks crumble. They aren’t playing that well and lost that unbeatable aura. If Dragons knock them off, which is quite possible – they then have a pretty tough run of Storm – and I think Cam might make an appearance. Win or lose, that game will take it out of them and followed by Tigers, Broncos, Knights, Sharks and Souths they don’t have an easy run home. I’d be surprised, but not shocked if they drop 4 of those and just scrape in. My smokie are Souths.

Who is a genuine contender and who is making up the numbers?

I’m with you there. Might be expecting Aitkin to fail the physical and Sailor is the back-up?

We can dream. I agree, but do I have the coogs to back them??

with a high expectation of care for the poor and the disadvantaged, financial honesty and also limits on the acquisition of wealth the the expense of others We could do with a bit more of this today.

I don’t know about you, but I got that feeling that while the games were close, it reminded me of all those fights with my bigger and older brother, where I got in a few good hits and actually almost started thinking I could win, getting close and then he’d like.. “that’s it, had enough” and smash me. You know what i mean? It looked like you had a chance but then he just stepped up and whoosh all over and you’re back in the dirt licking wounds.

Any issue you inaccurately and ignorantly decide to attribute to me pales into insignificance compared to darkness you carry in your soul. I’m sorry for your pain but I didn’t cause it so lashing out at me solves nothing and is wasted.

The article is looking to generate it. It’s not always readily obvious. Want some perspective about anti blm sentiments??

The only way Bennett can/would leave Souths early is if they win the comp…

Good luck, my emails are getting nowhere.

LOL.. Nick K challenges my good will meter… :), yet you have made a point for many who would agree. 👍

We aren’t, but we’re not on the board, sadly. I think you and I could start something beautiful (with the Red V I mean…). I did hear that about Fitz and given both Flanno, Benny and Mary are tied until end 2021 I think the Dragons board will hang off until this current coach hunting season is over and have the pick of the crop next year, and keep Mary as long as there is not too much heat and pay him less. I’d be shocked now if Mary went before 2021.

Didn’t avoid it, was too obvious to mention. Yes some will get jailed for theft , others will not. Interestingly or not, some of that decision is apparently made according to skin colour. And that we ended up discussing theft from an article around kneeling shows how far off topic we went. Cheers, have a good week.

Appreciate the initial response was limited. To be more to the discrimination point, (which I feel you have a used a limited application of the meaning here, I do understand the word) choosing to avoid a guy because he’s off his face drunk and sitting somewhere else is discrimination and it happens a lot. Not dating someone because they are a liar is discrimination and it happens a lot. etc. Though I think we’re going off track a little here. Izzy mentioned a range of people and the media zeroed in on the one that would create that most controversy and paper sales. Others that could have been uptight were ignored.

I disagree. Drunks are very unaccepted in general, as are liars. Adulterers frowned up and thieves end up in jail. These groups cop it as well.

I think he’s good value, depending the structure of the squad. He’d be great around some of the older under performers (Norman) and give it to them straight. He did bring along some of the young fellas in Penrith a bit so he might be good with youth, my general hesitation being that he has/might have a rep (from my limited knowledge) for being a bit of a hard a.r.s.e. and while a no-nonsense approach is warranted sometimes, he might need to soften the edges with the amount of young and fragile egos coming up the ranks. He’d be 4th on my list behind Fitz, Flanno and Benny (no particular order).

Don’t call me that. You have no idea about me and that is an inexcusable comment in any case besides being in no way – a description of me or my character..

Folau courts more controversy

Actually, no. the majority of comments are quite tempered and supportive, however, just about all Izzy articles are put up with headings designed to elicit negative and harmful comments towards him. And most do. It’s more than possible for another Australian sportsperson to do this with barely a comment.

Well, Pickett my new mate, learning more about you aren’t I?

That’s a start 😊 Appreciate the mention. 👍

Andrew, please refrain from any mention of Nathan Brown as a potential coach. You acknowledge this by deploring mediocrity, which Brown was famous for accepting – not even Warriors, Dogs or Titans would accept 3 spoons in a row. AND he’s an ex, which, you know, is also a no-no. As you know more than most, we have a good bunch of youngsters coming through so there isn’t a need for a lot of recruitment. There are some good outside backs and Sullivan who, between them and Sailor can cover 5/8 to FB. I’d keep Aitken on annual contracts only as a back-up and bench player. Forwards are pretty well covered with youngsters too, so, at the moment, maybe an experienced and hard forward AND the right coach to bring the rest along. Not Cartwright, he would be another Norman. Most important investment is in the coach. And you have a valid point, there is no value in buying a player who will be a roadblock to the career pathway of a talented junior.
