    I’m not familiar with betting parlance.

    Sorry.

    Percentages are better, so let’s go with 80%.

    YOU HAVE NO SENSE OF HUMOUR....
    ...Sorry, accidental caps lock. Please ignore the above sentence.

    You have no sense of humour.

    That's better.

    I’m to ignore “Sprry, accidental caps lock on”?

    No worries, I’m sure to feel better for doing so.

    With CC being “postponed” it’s going to be very hard for fringe players to stay in form, earn new contracts or force their way into the starting side. What a shit year this is.

    For what it's worth I listened to the game on the radio. Good descriptive commentary and informed analysis notwithstanding the shit result. It may not be ideal but I enjoyed it.

    And when you say no crowds, there was obviously a bunch of people outside the ground yelling support, came over quite clearly on the airwaves. That can only happen at suburban grounds like Kogarah.

    Your funny.. the comp will not run it’s full course - seriously you can’t be that much of a romantic.. if you haven’t noticed the rest of the world is in shutdown .. and it will only get worse here before it gets better .. I’m only working off the global stats - it’s inevitable and when it happens At least then you will have no other choice but to agree w me and the many many many experts..

    You predicted the the NRL competition would shut down by round 2. You don't like being wrong, so you shift the rhetoric around like you're doing here in the above post.

    If you throw enough darts while blindfolded you'll eventual get a bullseye. Meanwhile, others are still allowed to laugh at you.

    Mate your not a realist nor are you not some wise monk.. the country will be shutdown any day now and that’ll be it.. it’s a reality most probably round 3 at a pinch .. so apologies for not predicting right on the button. You sit there bagging anyone that has an opinion..

    You said round 2.

    Look, everyone knows about the concerns.

    You don't own the concern. You're not the hero here. Have you got that yet?

    Borrowing words from David Waite in 1996, 'we can only control things that we can control'. And we had a proud season in '96.

    The last thing we need are panic merchants. So settle down.

    It's called social distancing Crush.

    I'm curious though, who is 'she'?

    As a kid I was told “she is the cat’s mother”.

    To this date I still have NFI what that actually means..

    The sooner they suspend the NRL & AFL seasons the better. With further restrictions placed on social distancing and closing of state borders imminent. The people need to understand it’s very serious and as a community it’s a bad sign to let overpaid footballers be exempt from following these restrictions.
    It’s not a good look and sport need to adhere and lead in helping contain this threat.
