And so the tripe about Skelton kicks off again. Bragging about making 45m in eight runs is patently ridiculous. He’s 2m tall, so it really means he made 3m per run. It must have nearly killed the big man to travel half the length of the football carrying a ball…

I can understand O’Connor getting busted – he’s a 26 year-old man-child who’s been pampered (and misbehaving) his whole life. It’s almost expected of him to get into trouble. But Williams? An honoured, almost-legendary AllBlack who spent a decade in the notoriously disciplined kiwi team rugby environment? I can’t wait to hear the excuses and reasons. I’m sure it won’t be their fault…

I’m sure James understands the “disappointment” that Paul White feels. I’m also sure James knows that when he gets on the turps sometimes bad things happen, especially to him. And now I’m sure that James mostly feels bullet-proof because, like so many others before, he can breach contract clauses, the law, and common morality, and keep receiving his ridiculous salary regardless. 

It’s fantastic to see the NRL taking such a stance. Wusses.

“…my first six balls, I try and look to hit a boundary instead of trying to leave them, which traditionalists might argue that’s how you’re supposed to approach Test cricket…”

Gee, Davey, maybe THAT’s why you’ll never be the legend you crave. Test cricket IS traditional – if you change it, then the tradition has gone. But we couldn’t expect a gen-Z’er to understand that stuff. Just like we can’t understand the craving for media attention. Nor that a pretty-good cricketer, but an average human, can make SO much money. I pity your poor children finding out all the stuff from Dad’s (and Mum’s!) past…

Georgina writes on Begg’s statement about club autonomy that it “should have sent chills down the spine of ARU chief Bill Pulver” and she’s spot ob. Unfortunately. his head is so far up his arse it’s pressing on important nerves and blocking any signals trying to get to his brain….

This is just one more story the PC-brigade love to bang on about – the jewish Hollywood moguls forgave Mel as soon as they thought that he could make them money again…;^)

What a joke. Picking a guy who hasn’t once shown he’s up for 80 minutes of International rugby, a guy who often shows a serious lack of judgement and effort, a guy who often gets binned for illegal thuggery, and a guy who still travels on his kiwi passport as Australian captain? Yeah Cheik, you haven’t devalued the Wallaby jersey at all, mate. And yesterday I saw a herd of pigs flying over the ocean…

Will Skelton shocked to be named Wallabies captain but wants to move past Scotland brain snap.

Wow. What insight! No wonder there’s so few world-class coaches in rugby. Clearly it takes years at the top level to accurately pinpoint problems in the scrum – “What we’ve got to do is do our best to stay up” – and then so ably verbalize it. I’m now more confident than ever that  the Wallabies will bag a Slam under Cheika’s tutelage.

Michael Cheika says plenty on the line as Wallabies eye off another hurdle in grand slam quest.

Wow! So generous! That’s about .0002% of Katy’s 2016 earnings thus far. To paraphrase Samuel L Jackson (discussing Richard Gere’s fund-raising for the displaced Tibetans) – Give them $10million, and SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Well Garry, don’t move so far North that you end up on the Gold Coast. My sleepy little fishing village has become a pilot light for modern-day Gomorrah. I asked a little old lady at out local supermarket just yesterday if she’d like some help getting her bags into her car. She was a. obviously quite frightened as I walked towards her, b. she was obviously quite dubious about my offer, and c. so obviously relieved and grateful when she realized I was actually just trying to be helpful, and she echoed the lady in your story verbatim “People don’t help anymore…”

It’s a very sad state of affairs when healthy people don’t give up their seats on the bus for those more needy (and don’t even realize or know that it’s the nice and proper thing to do), that polite merging on a busy road is a thing of the past, and that customer service has gone the way of the dinosaurs.

When did big-city society give up?

Sydney, I love you, but you’re meaner than ever: that’s why I’m leaving.
