Tim has been an NRL statistician for ABC Radio Grandstand since 1999, primarily as part of their Canberra coverage. Tim has loved rugby league since Sterlo was a kid with lots of hair but was cursed with having no personal sporting ability whatsoever. He couldn't take a hit in footy, was a third division soccer player making up numbers, plays off 41 in golf and is possibly the worlds worst cricketer ever. He has always been good at arguing the point though and he has a great memory of what happened. Follow Tim on Twitter @GorskiOPork

The NRL quarter season report card

Nothing from 1997 is recognised as it was a split competition.
It was a wasted year. No one won. Everyone lost.
There was no good and evil.
It was just two very rich men arguing over tv rights and using us all as pawns.
Anyone who thinks otherwise is still deluded.

If you’re in Brisvegas you probably think it is

Only one that counted

Just calling it as I see it. The Eels attack is better.

Not an error. 1997 counts for nothing. It was a waste year.

They’ll improve for sure. But the loss to the Dragons said a lot for mine.

It was a sub editor error. In that the sub editor failed to rectify my error…

You mean for his alleged behaviour

Or have the confidence to invest with a CEO who adopts these sort of legal strategies…

'It's Mabo. It's the vibe': The NRL's Federal Court defence

we have how they’ve conducted the defence. Do you reckon it’s been good? Competent? Effective?
And they are the ones in charge. The buck stops with them.
Who they got the advice from was up to them as they run the place and were selected for their supposed suitability and skills.
But you are right in one thing: I bet someone else gets thrown under the bus

'It's Mabo. It's the vibe': The NRL's Federal Court defence

But you just don’t get it. If you are going to do it then it must be based on logic that can get through the courts! And you should have people making that strategy who are capable of making it.

He has been financially penalised : $90,000 for no origin games.
Just because he’s been charged doesn’t mean he is guilty. Just because they are police doesn’t mean they are right.

'It's Mabo. It's the vibe': The NRL's Federal Court defence

Again, just because they are charged doesn’t mean they are guilty!
What part of that don’t you understand?

'It's Mabo. It's the vibe': The NRL's Federal Court defence

BAZ, you can’t stand someone down over allegations for which – as made clear – there are no established facts. Just hearsay.
I refuse to castigate someone on the basis of hearsay.
You only truly understand the paramount importance of innocent until proven guilty when you are innocent of the crime of which you have been accused and people are assuming you aren’t and trying to punish you based on their presumptions, with no due and proper process.
If De Belin is found guilty his punishment will far outweigh anything the NRL can do. But if he’s found not guilty he will sue the NRL until they bleed and he’ll be right to do it.
Populist, knee jerk actions can not be the hallmark of a professional administration.
I had assumed we’d see a half decent defence of their actions. I’m stunned by what they’ve dished up. Who even thought going to court with these arguments was a proper and reasonable course?

You know what the worst thing about this is? My University opus was on the House of Un-American Activities Commission…
I feel great shame…

Like I said: simple

With travel included, over last five years, it’s one in ten win. Huge huge difference. Almost a guaranteed loss.

Are you actually saying it makes no difference about five day turn arounds?!? All of the data indicates it makes a huge difference. It massively disadvantages the side with the short break and equally advantages the side receiving them. Innthis years farce the Rabbitohs and Panthers get MASSIVE advantage.

A good point. Melbourne to Sydney I classify as significant. Maybe I shouldn’t…

But it’s a different audience too.

I thought I’d made that point. Obviously not clearly enough GH.
