    Looks like Julia Gillard has responded swiftly to that tweet by omitting Farah from her PM's XIII to play PNG. That should stop the troll

    I'm tempted to start a twitter account just to ask Robbie where I can find a noose

    This thing is taking on the aura of that ad for the new 'Madagascar' movie, with the whole 'Circus, circus, polka dot, affro' feel.

    Robbie doesn't need a noose - he's doing a good job hanging himself without it!

    Wests Tigers Captain Robbie Farah has issued the following statement.
    I have written to Prime Minister Julia Gillard today to apologise for any hurt caused by a tweet I posted in 2011.
    As you are aware I have been vocal in recent days about criticising those who say some pretty disgraceful things through social media and I have appreciated your support in relation to that cause.
    It is an experience that has highlighted the hurtful nature of unthinking comments and even those which are sometimes put forward as ‘black humour’.
    In the course of this I have been alerted to a ‘tweet’ I made last year in relation to the Prime Minister which was in hindsight clearly offensive.
    At the time I did think about what I had done and removed the ‘tweet’ soon after posting it but that of course doesn’t repair the damage.
    I make no excuse and offer my sincere apologies. I can only say that I have learnt a lot in recent days and I hope that everyone in the community can learn about the pain that we can cause through such comments.
    Hopefully the whole situation will only serve to encourage everyone to think about what we are really saying before we hit the ‘send’ key.

    Good on him for being a man and admitting it. This whole situation is ridiculous though.

    I'm a NSW supporter and I must say that the day that both Farah and Gallen are out of the NSW Origin side will be one of the best days in RL history. With the amount of incessant bitching, whining and grubby plays they've pulled off over the last few years, I've had enough of both of them. Neither of them are fit for leadership places in any RL side and both Tigers and Sharks fans should feel disgusted they have players like those two in their sides.

    And a big LOL to all the ppl (predominantly Sharks supporters like Slothfield) who still think that Gallen is the man to lead us to an Origin series victory. Keep on dreaming guys...keep on dreaming

    I'll admit, with his admitted love of diving and whinging all the time my respect for Gallen has gone down.

    I almost [[​IMG][​IMG]] felt emotional when I read that apology written by a PR company. :lol:
