    Yeah, I'll concede that, the wallabies showed zero heart on Saturday, they just bent over and took it without even making NZ pay for the taxi home.

    Saw this on Sports Tonight last night as well:
    Teen footy thug banned over bashing | The Daily Telegraph


    What the video on the telegraph site doesn' show is the players walking back towards the crowd with their hands raised in Triumph and their 'supporters' going wild and cheering them on.

    I can't believe this would happen in any sport, it's an Under 16 game ffs. The team in Blue doesn't even instigate anything, they just retreat after scoring a try, the ****heads on the orange team just grabbed at guys for no reason...sickens me that this sort of behaviour is applauded in some parts, all involved should be castrated IMO, improve the gene pool no end.

    EDIT: better video on foxsports: NRL Video : League News - NRL, NRL Results, NRL Ladder, NRL Live Scores - Fox Sports

    Yeesh. From the BBC. Sounds like he's in a bad way.

    Wish him all the best, obv.

    Benny Elias on the radio just described the pre-interchange game as "a battle of nutrition".

    Yeah, don't mind Talkin Bulldogs, despite Hughes' well developed sense of self worth. Drags on a bit but there's plenty of league talk.

    Don't mind Hughes tbh, but cannot stand Peter Tunks. Think we can all agree that Robbo makes the show though, WAG.

    Talking Tigers/Bulldogs/Roosters/Souths might be a more accurate description too. Hope none of 'em makes the finals next year, just to hear all their supporters blubbering on the radio

    Another bad point of the show is having to change stations every half hour, as that network has, without question, the worst newsreaders in the world.

    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Matt Orford joins Bradford, and Dallas Johnson has recently gone to France. So Mr Gallop, what are you going to do to stop the player drain? Oh that's right, nothing. Time for you to resign IMO. FTR I don't blame Orford or Johnson for taking the money, and the lifestyle (in Johnson's case moreso then Orford's).

    Sometimes I wonder how Melbourne haven't been pinged for salaray cap breaches (ie big ones). Mind you the Storm CEO used to be the CEO for St Kilda, so he probably knows the tricks of the trade.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Hahahaha Orford and Johnson gone. Gotta lol. Soon it'll be 47yo Darren Lockyer and a team of 16yo's playing for QLD in Origin. They'd still win.

    Interesting in that with Bradford signing Orford and Chris Walker from the Titans, Orford takes their visa players to six (they are allowed five), a massive legal battle is set to erupt as Bradford have told Walker he is not wanted next year, despite the fact that Walker had signed the contract in August (before Orford signed up), had a visa sponsorship number, and was set to go. Walker and his agent have already got the players union onside, and have spoken with lawyer's in England who believe they have a good case. So they are going to fight to have Bradford respect Walker's contract and not let the RLF register Orford's contract, or force Bradford to pay Walker out. It's not known yet whether or not Bradford have registered Walker's signed contract with the RLF when they were in talks with Orford intrying to hedge their bets, in that if they couldn't get Walker (no visa), then they would have Orford, and vise versa.

    Sorry, but I don't see how Bradford can get out of this.

    Greg Bird signs with the Titans. I don't know why, we have plenty of his type and his GF on the Coast already.

    Newcastle might not get much out of Danny Wicks next year.

    Facing Newcastle Local Court this arvo on drug supply charges.

    Off season follies have started early this year.
