Gus had a point when he advocated suspensions for all. 2 -3 players are riding unregistered motor bikes and using unlicensed guns while the other brainiac has 5 young girls at his place who were waiting for an Uber.

In regards to Ado Carr and Mitchell, they broke the law so not sure why no suspension unless the NRL were more worried about social isolation infractions than breaking the law.

Cleary technically did not break any law than social isolation laws but it is not a great image for the game for a star player to be with 5 young girls. One seems to be almost sitting on his lap too.

I wonder how many players are sanitising their social media or banning phones from parties now.

How hypocritical are those NRL fools who were caught breaking social distancing rules

I just went looking for your condemnation comments on the AFL thread about Lauchie Hunter or Tyson Stengle but I couldn't find any?

I guess what we can deduce from that is - 1) you only come here to stir 2) shows your hypocrisy 3) no body gives a f%^k about the AFL seeing there is 4 comments on the thread   :lol:

It's not personal bubba but that is the impression I get from every anti NRL person :sad:

They set a precedent when they sent Mitchell Pearce out for 9 weeks in 2015 which just put Easts out for the entire season.

Can't believe they never got a suspension, and a fine reduced by 60%.

Favoritism rears its' ugly head.  Crowe must have a lot of "influence"  ;)

It was one of Greenberg's flaws, the bias he showed against certain clubs.

Corey Norman cops it for having a pill on him but the 2 Kiwi players only get suspended from a couple of tests for video showing them snorting lines  :shutup:

Greenberg actually apologized to Pearce a couple of years ago.

That was one of the most disgraceful incidents in Rugby League, and is the reason I rarely watch Channel 9 and their "Footy Show" or "A Current Affair".

To pay $250,000 for a video taken by a sneak hiding in a cupboard whilst someone outside goads him into doing something stupid whilst he had had a few, then running a daytime ad campaign saying "watch tonight's A Current Affair where we show a first grade footballer having sex with a dog" (which was a lie), to me was just beyond the pale.

This is the same media organization that goes around saying it should receive special treatment in the eyes of the law because they publish in "the public's best interest". FFS.

An interesting article about NRL and changes for the administration of it.

Mal Is supposed to be on $300k per year. It will be intriguing to find out how much Fittler and Walters get for their Origin gigs.

Surprised that nobody has broached the 'conscientious objectors' subject

Black and white to me . . No jab = No play

I think these anti-vaxxers are  :censored: wits , hese ones that don't have their vaccinated but as far as  I know this is the first year that there has been an NRL discussion re flu jabs?

Why have they become mandatory this year?

As far as I know these are just like all the other flu jabs that people either get or don't get every year. they have nothing to do with the coronavirus.

This is also the first year that there has been CV-19 . . my point of view is that the flu' is a mitigating factor as regards the CV-19 . . so even passing on flu' virus is not helpful to anybody

These poor sods need protecting from themselves . . as has been evidenced so many times in so many areas

You'd be surprised how far up the Richter Scale Of Fears is the "fear of needles".

People who are afflicted will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid needles all through their life.

My best mate growing up lived two doors down. His father was a Yugoslav immigrant. Towering bloke could have been a Heavyweight boxer. Scared the begeezus out of everyone but had a great sense of humour and was a very good friend of the family.

Morbid fear of needles.

He had a stroke on his dying day and got rushed to hospital but even though he was in critical condition his fear of needles won out and he died without a drip in his arm.

Setting aside COVID, I'm surprised this hasn't been mandatory from the clubs before (forget the NRL) after all the players are the 'asset'. You can lose a comp for not having your best team on the park through injury or illness.

Wouldn't you do what you can to protect your asset and maintain a healthy squad to the best of your ability?

Talks about a $2.3b deal for next 7 years. Great deal for Fox and Nine if the NRL digital arm is part of the deal or reduced coverage. Previous deal was $1.8 for 5 years. AFL deal will be interesting  as they were first off the rank last time and had all the networks competing for it.

Not sure what you are on about as it is a NRL deal.

Last deal worked out to be $360 mill per year as it was $1.8b over 5. This one works out be around $328 per year.  Thus about $32m per year less than last deal. The article did mention a discount for this year so was it a $200m discount?

Saying that nine and Foxtel donít have that much money especially with Foxtel shedding staff. So with the new world order with Covid19, this could be one of the best deals ever in Australian sporting tvdeals ever.

The one referee in a game saga gets more stranger every day.

https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/peter-vlandys-hits-out-at-ludicrous-referees-following-fair-work-commission-dispute/bd5858f1-9ac4-47c3-9d87-b83525f54016

I've liked PV bash and barge to get the game back but this changing of rules & refs seems like he simply wants to stamp his mark - shows the ego of the bloke.

Shocking decision to be making changes now without having at least trialed it  emthdown

He's an opportunity to showcase to the world as one of the first sports back up and running and what do we do? Create confusion and change around the way the game is played  :stop:

This does seem strange. Walker going to the police for an alleged blackmail plot about footage of Walker kicking a bloke.

The story has two threads, with Walker likely to be asked to explain the original incident and also how the alleged blackmail unfolded.

The Integrity Unit investigation puts a cloud over his immediate future as the Rabbitohs prepare to resume their season against the Roosters on Friday week.



Him and Latrell Mitchell.

One gets the feeling that Rugby League is a thing that gets in the way of their lives.

I am not sure what is going on at Souths at the moment with Mitchell (social isolation issues) , Roberts ( rehab) and now Walker (blackmail) involved in off field issues. We also had a public spat involving Richardson resignation and then others calling him out for issues with Burgess etc.

It is quite unlike Souths who have become more professional than most
In the last decade. I think some of these issues happens at others at other clubs too but because of their profile no one really cares as much. Souths to their credit have always been upfront too unlike others.
