    Mate, you are living in fantasy land.

    A lot of people would have guessed Fox would have that number because, for a very long time, people were saying that they just wanted a sports subscription and not the rest of the garbage that came with it.

    It's not now, nor for a very long time will it be financially viable. If ever. Regardless of your dreams.

    "No different to the exemptions for child care"

    Only one problem there, children aren't required to get the flu shot to attend daycare.

    Comparing the exemptions, not the vaccines.

    Good from the QLD Government!

    No jab no play. It’s not that hard.

    Let’s see how much of an anti vaxxer they are when they don’t have 200k of income coming it!

    Bryce is on a good deal more than that I'd expect, even with 20% taken off. Of course whether they can actually refuse to pay him might be determined in court.

    Well worth it if it goes that route. I’m sure the NRL have some advice and it’s not the NRL’s decision anyway it’s the government.

    If the anti-Vaxxers feel so strongly about this, they should volunteer to stand down without pay.

    All they want is to have the freedom to choose what medical procedures and medications they take..

    … Of course they already have that. What they really want is everyone else's freedom to not work with lunatics taken away.

    It's past that now. If the QLD govt ban is upheld, it's going to be interesting how much conviction they have in their beliefs when GC tell them they will be released from their $x00,000 per season contract.

    This is the reality of it. Making costs match what people would pay

    So now the NRL are trying to move the draw around so the NSW Based clubs with anti vaccine players aren’t affected.

    https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/s...e/news-story/ad664673b0f404e10d33f5edfade5d1f

    why are the raiders, dogs, and manly being given special treatment here? Just play the games as scheduled and those teams will need to stand people down for QLD games. Pretty simple.

    seems ridiculous to change the draw specifically to favour these 3 teams

    Why don't their team mates just vax them as a prank?

    Tell them it is a supplement or pain killer and they wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference

    $800k a year down the gurgler for Bryce. Can't see any other clubs signing him either.

    The NRL will partner with Fox the digital arm that will save a heap.

    Fox recently purchased HBO in the US, what's the bet they use the league to get eyeballs onto this plus cash.

    Get your league and the HBO library.

    Plus they get access to 1.5 million people on the NRL data base.

    What about with the whole HBO library to pick from also.
