    Pete wouldn't earn extra by bagging rugby league.It's just not his go.
    The guy kept raving on about who the hell is this bio security expert , week after week.
    I had the temerity to send him an e-mail, giving Bandana Boy the name of the Professor who has been advising the NRL, and stating the guy's name has been mentioned many times in the past in the print media.Naturally, he didn't respond to my info.

    Nice rant by him lol. Paper must love him, he would be their biggest click bait article writer. Such is modern day journalism.

    I wont be clicking on it either. Virtually nothing he writes in the tabloids interest me however I do have one question about this latest rant.

    Does his outburst in any way even consider referencing the ever so small fact about a contractual agreement between the NSW Gov & the NRL on the issue of funding stadiums ? If not then why would anyone take that seriously

    It does but he says as the NSW govt has delivered on 2/3rds of it then it is greedy for the NRL to want more and threaten to take GF's away. The bit about no one going to a GF in Perth or Melbourne made me laugh, he has clearly been under a rock when SOO has been played in those cities!

    If Pirate Pete is against us getting 4 stadiums we'll probably get 8. Bloke couldn't pick a winner if Paul Kent told him the result.

    That article was the first of his and from now on not the last , avoided being used as click bait.It's just the same old, same old, sink the slipper into rugby league by Bandana Bro.

    The guy is an obsessive NRL hater, yet gets a weekly gig on the HOME OF RUGBY LEAGUE"S)(sic) Sport Sunday.Just flaming hypocrisy at its finest.

    It would be akin to having North Korea's Kim Jon Un, as speaker in the South Korean Parliament. Telling all and sundry ,democracy sucks.
