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 brown paper bags to anyone and everyone involved so their prized monkey can run onto the playing field as scheduled. The biggest surprise is that Brad Thorn is having ANY of it, but they are old team mates so perhaps that has something to do with it…?!?

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 world of tennis has treated you, then boast of your mental strength, your wealth, and your talent? Go.Away.Now.

Bernard Tomic denies being mentally fragile, accuses Tennis Australia of corruption.

OMG – Is there ANYTHING more judgemental than a privileged middle-age white woman?

Why nobody is more judgemental than middle class mothers.

I’m NOT saying she shouldn’t get paid the same as her male counterpart, but he gets paid $6million/year to host an entertainment news program. Ummm…maybe they should BOTH get paid what their worth, which I estimate to be about $US75k/year. It’s a show with stories that other people have researched and written about “celebrities” – they just sit at a desk and read the fucking teleprompter. Even King Wally can do that, and he’s had half his brain cut out. FFS! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?!?!

When will women realize that, if they turn all this #metoo shit into a battle of the sexes, men are bigger and stronger, and will thump the shit out of them. And then “mansplain” to them the meaning of irony…

I’ve been giving my wife the good bread for 30 fucking years, and all she does is complain that it’s stale…

Could your marriage pass the loaf of bread test?.

“…her heart undeniably rests with rugby union and the All Blacks”. She wears black listick  FFS. She sounds like an Auckland Central West moll. She lives in Lakemba. And she was born IN Australia, but has a KIWI passport. I guess that makes her eminently more qualified to deal with the players the ARU are currently paying…
Oh yeah – #metoo…

Oh FFS. Australian rugby is fucked. Not only do they overpay under-performing athletes, not only do they overcharge fans to attend games, not only do they completely ignore grassroots rugby, and not only do they pick non-Australians in the national side, but now…
…they replace the guy who led the Union straight through the s-bend with…a kiwi, an ex-League-ie, and a woman – all rolled into one! If she was obese, Maori, muslim AND lesbian the ARU could have covered every minority known to mankind with the one employment. Rugby is, after all, the shining light for equality in Australia. And rugby in this country is now more fucked than it was before.

Kepu getting carded was NOT the turning point – Scotland had looked better for 90% of the game to that point. Australia need to learn to play smart, which ideally would include a backline defence that isn’t constantly out of alignment because one of them rushes up – every single player had a turn – they have the collective IQ of a garden snail. And Cheika threw up the white flag by putting Phipps on at the 59 minute mark. The Scots knew it, and took us apart. And where were the looks of anguish and embarrassment when the teams were congratulating each other? I saw only smiles and hugs. I guess when you still get your massive paycheck after a flogging like that, there’s no real reason to be morose…On the upside, there’s no more rugby til next year!

Wallabies suffer worst ever loss to Scotland as Sekope Kepu is red carded.

Philip Browne (chief executive of the Irish Union) says that “Money shouldn’t be everything” and he is absolutely correct. Unfortunately, money, in today’s game, is ALL that counts. Hence, players choose European clubs over national sides, tribalism means nothing at provincial level, juniors can’t afford insurance, and beers cost $8. It’s also why Super Rugby struggles to get more than 10000 people to a game…
