Who EVER would have seen this coming? A professional athlete being excused from yet another subsequent law-breaking misdemeanour as the (*pick whatever code you like* code) union insists it’s cleaning itself up. What a freakin’ joke. No doubt Harmichael won’t have any mud on his fingers – the powers-that-be will have handed out amatch tickets and […]

Just go away Bernie. A lot of people have downgraded their criticsm of you because of the “depression” factor. It’s a vastly misunderstood malaise and a political hot potato – for you to bandy the word about shows your utter disregard for humanity. You complain about how hard your life has been, how horribly the […]

I’ve never been a great fan of League-ies coming across to rugby, and landing in Test sides without playing at least a few years dues, but Hunt is SO much better than Kerevi that I’m willing to  change my stance. Hunt can stay in a defensive line, he can understand his role in that line, […]

Because I’m nice (and forgiving), I wrote this comment in response to the article. Whether the SMH publish is another matter… Tom Decent – You’re obviously a Quade fan, like legions of others. I am from the other side of the fence, and what you see as “a solid game”, I see as his usual […]

WTF is anyone surprised that this happened… a. Meafua will have been treated like a mini-God for the last 5 years or so, and would have thought he was untouchable… b. He’s a kiwi – his first reaction to most everything would be violent. It’s how they mostly solve things. Once Were Warriors, anyone? Hopefully his next […]

This whole deal is embarrassing for the NZRU and Hansen in particular. They’ve clearly contravened the meaning and spirit of the suspension – every single person I’ve spoken to (including kiwis) thinks SBW should serve out his time and miss four games of EQUAL stature ie. four test matches. And seriously, is SBW that important […]

What a trite conversation piece. Is it wise for the NRL to keep employing The Plane when he makes such ridiculous comparisons? I wonder if he knows the market forces involved in the US? More particularly, does he realize the hold that NFL has on revenue streams? Does he even know the population of the […]

Stephen Moore? Seriously? I’d love to see the rationale for that choice. He has been in exceptionally bad form since he moved to Queensland, his last game was the first time all season he lasted more than 50 minutes, his lineout throwing has degraded dramatically, and his relationship with referees is, at best, questionable. I […]

I think it’s wrong that Reynolds (or really any rugby league player, or professional rugby player for that matter) can afford a personalised number plate, let alone the Mercedes to put it on. Have you heard the guy talk? He’s barely literate. Lucky he can play footy because he might just be too dumb even to […]
