    Quite easily the fakest article I have read.

    The last paragraphs mention of AFLW gave the ghost away big-time.

    I thought there was a Bullshit Ritchie thread, but never mind.

    Some genius is going to keep a tally of his scoops and claims.



    Ah even better he's going to cover the lot of them. #NRLRumourMongerTracker

    The best way to put out a fire is to starve it of oxygen, not poor petrol on it. Can nrl players please be taught this?

    Ch7’s “Sunday Night” have a hatchet job on the nrl, coinciding perfectly with the opening rd, pathetic.

    Rugby League always being bashed by the media. When I was growing up it was violence onfield, then drinking now treatment of women.

    I didnt watch the program because, 1. there was something better on TV 2. Having seen the ads for it got me thinking how this could be another anti NRL story and biased towards AFL.

    Also the ads kept changing the story, one bit was saying Footy crisis, the next bit was saying NRL crisis.

    It was all garbage with no new revelations & the women interviewed came out of it looking terribly.

    interesting times for union ... cut the japan team (sun-wolves, in the year of japan's world cup no less) ... hot on the heels of relegating the pacific nations to 2nd tier internationals ... in france they are trialing one man tackles below the waist (wtf?) ... and people urging the crusaders to change their name after the christchurch massacre (bit kneejerk) ... it occurred to me no central person actually has control over any of that.

    reckon if any of this happened in the NRL it would be crisis battle stations, let alone all four over the course of the past week or so.

    meanwhile, our mob looking to expand. nice for a change. wonder how long it lasts lol.

    And notice the hijacking of the term "footy".! Footy where and when I was growing up was rugby-league. Conveniently media companies like FOX have no issues with labeling a whole channel as FOX Footy designed for AFL. And to.make it worse instead of FOX RUGBY LEAGUE it's FOX League. Can't wait to see what FOX call the rugby union channel ? Guarantee it wont be FOX UNION!
