Conversion therapy, which I assume you’re referring to, seems to make people suppress their sexuality rather than change it. Who would choose to be gay in this discriminatory world?

Israel Folau to fight Rugby AU sanction

He could probably at least argue about the expansion teams giving the AFL ten games per round.

Want to to change the rugby league world? Cite the AFL first

Pity he’s a KISS fan, though.

Let's hear it for the expansionists

You see, there is a thing called rugby league… Apologies, I won’t do that again.
I didn’t give my opinion before, but I think short-term, the talent pool would indeed be stretched too thin by adding teams and by not importing English talent. Long-term, however, greater opportunity and greater exposure may lead to more juniors moving to or staying in league.
At the same time, the player comparisons are interesting. Blake Austin was so inconsistent, but that did make him entertaining. Admittedly, I may think differently if I supported Canberra

Rugby league expansion back on the agenda in both hemispheres

The NRL “handout” is funded by the tv rights. You know, the rights for watching the clubs play. In other words, money the clubs generate. Do I need to break this down further?

John Simon got an Australian jersey during his time at the Eels. They let him go mid-season two years later.

Five massive overreactions and scorching hot takes after Round 1 of the NRL


I'm wild for the NRL's Wildcard Weekend

The NRL used the current finals system in 1996 (as the ARL), and a very similar system the year before.

The NRL’s Wildcard Weekend is making heads explode

I would love it to happen, but I’m not holding my breath. Beating WSW and CCM is virtually a given for any team this season.

2005: A brief look back at one of rugby league's greatest seasons

And the Broncos never played against Canberra or in a decider. Can’t see another opportunity for it for a while either.

Knights vs Broncos: The grand final that never was

Jamie ‘Schumacher ‘ Young should have a while on the sidelines.

Ten-man Reds stun nine-man Roar in A-League

The side also represents Torres Strait Islanders, so Indigenous is a necessary term.

Latrell Mitchell to snub Roosters' World Club Challenge quest as NRL names All Star teams

Strange candidate list. Not a full season of NRL coaching between them. They may be the best candidates, and you gotta start somewhere, but you’d think they’d interview at least one coach with experience.

Sharks reportedly lock in new head coach

Ummm, he dedicated multiple paragraphs to it.

Manuka Oval’s Test debut 95 years in the making

I would’ve thought this was a serious article, but then you said you were a Roosters supporter. Nice try, but they don’t exist.

Eight reasons the 2018 grand final was the best in a decade

Guess you didn’t see him in the UAE. But he is currently out of sorts against all bowlers.

Stoinis does not deserve a Test debut

You’re right. What I was meaning to say was that the lower ranked Asian sides who Australia regularly face and are blindly expected to breeze over are catching up. Yes, we’ve always have had mixed results, but these days the preparation is better and the opponents are better known. The excuses for poor results are gone.

Australia leading the race to mediocrity in the footballing world

Is Smith’s absence from your top 6 intentional?

Five talking points from Australia vs Sri Lanka first Test

Don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel…

Yes, the current talent pool is not as strong as it has been, but other nations as a whole are greatly improving. Systematic Australian development will take generations to bear fruit; we have a national curriculum, but current players were not exposed to it from the start of their footballing lives. We have a few more years of treading water, but the improvements will come.

Doubles is more about reflexes and precision. It’s less straightforward to hit a winner, and with a second opponent covering the court you can forget about trying to pin an opponent to the baseline for a chip later in the rally. Do we need the 4×100 sprint? Or medley relays in the pool? Do we need sport at all?

Do we need doubles in tennis?

Anyone with half a brain would be in a vegetative state, kept alive only by machines. If they could communicate, they’d say that Australia could have batted first, leading to four innings, and that Sri Lanka were unpredictably affected by injuries to two of their specialist bowlers. Mind you, that’s assuming that the individual with half a brain followed cricket.

Australia win at the Gabba on Day 3

Loving this series!

Looking back: The 1988 Australian Formula One Grand Prix

100 percent agree. Australia could have won every previous game 10-0 and a short backpass still would have eliminated them. Professionals versus professionals but people expect dominant wins every time.

Australia's Asian Cup defence comes to a bitter end

Gallop also reminded players that the information they had given in surveys was to be held confidential.

“There is a curiosity around information. I’ve reminded them of the confidentiality of the survey work that was done.”

The confidentiality of a survey is supposed to allow for opinions to be given without fear of retribution. If someone chooses to provide said opinions without anonymity, there’s no reason that they should be stopped from doing so (yes, process of elimination could lead to a more narrow range of ‘culprits’, but when the detail is being kept anonymous, it matters little). Gallop is trying to go from the protector party to the protectee.
