    Fuck. What dirty cunt bit Price in the dressing sheds after the match? Bloody Eels are just not very good teammates.

    Most famous person you have ever met.

    I have said for years that even though the Dragons were always lumped with the 'chokers' tag, it was the Eels that truly deserved it. Not so much these days though. You have to actually be in a position to win games to be called a choker.

    Rio Olympics

    Well my favourite uncle died on Sunday aged 93 or 94...he was the father of Greg Brough. Uncle Nev was a great swimmer, lifesaver and footballer in his day. He was a lifelong friend of Harry Bath (former Balmain, St George , Queensland and NSW player who also played in England and coached 3 Sydney clubs). My uncle and Harry used to swim the Brisbane River from West End to Toowong and go to the Regatta Hotel, have a few beers and swim back to West End. They also used to swim from South Brisbane (where QPAC is) to North Quay and have their girlfriends carry their clothes over the bridge, then put their clothes on at North Quay and then go the movies. In 1947 he was the Queensland 220 yards swim champion, the Queensland surf belt and surfboat champion, and he played for Souths in their premiership side. Interesting that RL players then were considered professional sportsmen and could only compete in surf events that involved aparatus (eg reel, belts and surfboats). As far as professional footballers went in the 1940/50s...they got free beer after each game, a jersey at the end of the year, and a free jacket if they won a premiership....no wonder Harry Bath left to go to Sydney to actually get cash for playing. Funny story...when my cousin Greg was selected for the Olympics, my uncle and aunty booked flights and accomodation for the days he was competing. Just before they left the Gold Coast, they got a phone call from Norman May of the ABC who told my uncle that Greg was hitting all the bars with the older swimmers (Mike Wenden, Kevin Berry etc) and getting on the Tequila every night. When Uncle Nev finally got to Mexico City, he grabbed Greg by the throat, slammed him up against a wall, forearm to Gregs throat and said.."I have put 17 years into you, you little cunt, don't you dare fuck up or I will kill you". Greg apparently took the training a little bit more serious from then on. Uncle Nev was a huge guy and for a long time that I remember as a kid, the biggest human I had seen.

    No, my job is not dependent on me having a licence. It is dependent on me not having a criminal record though. I might be able to argue to the court against a recorded conviction if it was a low-range DUI because of my job.

    We lack any kind of visionary a team the moment, on any side of politics. I believe the footy was better in Whitlam’s era.

    Politics

    Whitlam was a great visionary, and one of his great visions was seeing trees with lots of money sprouting out of them. He did have grandiose ideas, some good some bad but zero idea of economics involved. I am not sure if you were an adult when Whitlam was in power but the whole of Australia was in fucking turmoil....inflation through the fucking roof, union strikes crippling the country every second week, and of course the Khemlani affair. Everybody was up in arms when Kerr sacked him but when they had the election a few weeks after that, it was a landslide against him. I personally thought he was fairly good and definitely better than Billy McMahon as PM, but his lack of fiscal knowledge was his weak point. At least when Hawke and Keating were in power they did have the economy relatively in check.

    A Greek immigrant who went to Britain because he was exiled from his own country when he was one year old. He served in the British Navy for 13 years, including during WW2. I know it's just a joke, but to label him as simply a Greek immigrant is a bit shit to someone who served the British people during wartime. Living off State benefits? The Royal family are rich because they own shitloads of land. The Government and the people just pay them in order to use this land. So when I constantly hear people say that the British Royal family are just a bunch of freeloaders living off Government money, they don't actually realise that the Royals could be getting a shitload more money if they wanted to by taking back their land and jacking up the rent. This video explains it pretty well:

    Normally by this time of year, I’d be getting interested in the nrl season ahead. This year I don’t really give a shit. Maybe the off season was pretty poor. Not many positive developments in player transfer area etc. I feel that the season might be too long after all. A 16 round comp with stand alone rep games would maybe work, but it would hit in the income department for the nrl. Advantage would be every team plays each other once, bringing a bit of fairness back to the draw. Balancing Home and away would be a critical factor though. There is an argument that a shorter season would grow the game more, with an increase in quality and a more consistent and even draw. I mean John Ribot used the argument of quality ove4 quantity successfully when they got rid of the lower grades on game day.

    Those kind of tradies are idiots who will all end up in the cancer ward if they don’t fall off a ladder first, or some other shit for thinking they are immune to risk. I did some pretty mad shit when I was a kid. No shoes, no hat, 40 plus days baking at the pool. But I know things are different now. UV is through the roof in SA. I don’t have time for climate change deniers. Had a mate die very young from cancer that started with a skin cancer on his leg. Ive had a few things cut out myself.

    Wasn't Reddy a Queenslander? Not that it has anything to do with his dirty play, other than the fact that all Queenslanders are dirty cheating cunts.

    Fuck off- it's Australia it gets hot- we live with it , we play with it. Roofers, brickies, landscapers, mowerrmen, civil workers, etc spend 8-10 hours a day flogging their arse off 6-7 days a week but our elite millionaire fucking pussy rugby league players can't last 80 minutes ( with multiple rests and drink breaks) ? Fuck off. And don't get me started on overpaid, overhyped fucking tennis players- you are fucking kidding. You probably have an office job?

    Listened to the first one on the transistor radio at my Uncles wedding. The wedding was a hippy occasion in Mullimbimby- All the non hippy uncles and my Dad were at the back listening to the footy - my first real taste of Sydney rugby league.

    I agree that Rod Reddy should have been sent off...I could not believe what he got away with.

    Thanks Quint for being the only person to read my post, or the only person that can read. It was entirely a joke. I do appreciate your point about losing 10kilos in hot sun at Penrith, but how do you know it wasnt the gastro inducing shit they serve in the canteen that did it?

    It was the second game. Reddy was on a rampage and should have been sent off. He received 5 cautions. He was only on the field for just over 40 minutes. It should be noted that the referee of that GF replay, Gary Cook, was employed by Penfolds Wines at the time...Penfolds also being the major sponsor of the St George Dragons. The NSW Premier at the time Neville Wran commented after the game: “In all my years of supporting rugby league I have seldom seen a player [Ray Price] subjected to so much punishment yet still walk off the field the star of the game. When I walked into the Parramatta dressing room to offer my condolences I was disgusted to find he had been bitten.”

    Which Club Needs to Go?

    Flanagan can rip into the NRL all he wants, but he was the one who went against his ban and cheated. He may be a good coach but the game is better off without him. In any case, he will be back at some stage anyway...probably with the Eels.

    My personal belief is that anyone guilty of sexual assault should be severely punished, and in the case of assaults against children and the disabled, there needs to be a death penalty. However, there is no greater harm that can be done to a man than falsely accuse him of DV or sexual assault, particularly in cases where the man has a public profile. To say that is rare, or doesn’t happen at all is just bullshit. The family court is full of cases where these accusations are made by women constantly, and suicide stats include a fair few cases of men subject to this kind of injustice.
