Seeing as being called a dog in Australia is not exactly a compliment , let’s say Stuart called one the following Aussie insults
A. Weak gutted fairy
B . Weak gutted nice person
C. Weak gutted tosser
D. Weak gutted nonce
E. Weak gutted sus merkin
F. Weak gutted gronk
G. Weak gutted flog
Any of those cause a different result ?
Id say A&B would be cause for dismissal
Lift your game Sticky …..
nice person - poo F
This is the thing though - was that really what happened, did Salmon really target Stuart's special needs daughter in some verbal tirade 12 years ago? Or are we all just being led to that conclusion by what the likes of Kent is saying - "I can't reveal what was said, about whom and by whom, but boy oh boy, if you know what I know, you'd all be on Sticky's side trust me"....His obviously targeted Rickys autistic daughter in a hurtful or malicious manner but as a 12 year old which me personally although not good doesn't define him as a person now.
When did all this occur is it when he was coaching Cronulla??????This is the thing though - was that really what happened, did Salmon really target Stuart's special needs daughter in some verbal tirade 12 years ago?

Utter horseshit. Without actually saying anything factual about the incident from over a decade ago and only alluding to it, they're further sullying Salmon's name by inferring the the adolescent crossed the boundary in a manner that an overwhelming percentage of the population would find reprehensible and unforgivable.
Essentially, Sticky has labelled Salmon a weak gutted dog in a public forum. Then when the heat came on him, he feigned regret while at the same time talking to his lickspittle Paul Kent who in turn pipes up, again inferring only, that Salmon (as a 12 year old mind you) has said something heinous about Sticky's daughter. That's the conclusion Sticky and Kent know people will jump to because of Stick's daughters condition.
Sticky says he's protecting his family. He dug this shit up from the past and created this spotlight. If there's damage being done to his family now, it ain't Salmon that's causing it. If someone's got a mirror handy perhaps they could lend it to Sticky so he knows who brought the spotlight on his family since Saturday night.
I wonder what his playing group are going to collectively make of this? The next 4 rounds will be interesting.It is curious to me that the events that led to him holding grudge were considered significant enough that reportedly the details wont be in the written report

Which to be clear, is not to excuse Stuart's actions at all. They were absolutely unacceptable and he's gotten off very lightly IMO. And if it were up to me the club should have sacked him (as much for this as being a generally shitty coach) and moved on. But it is curious.
Kent telling NRL fans to "piss off"? Yea, that'll go down well like a lead balloon.‘P**s off’: Kenty slams ‘idiots’ calling for season ban as NRL accused of scapegoating Rickywww.foxsports.com.au
In case you had the desire to watch a bunch of jabbering sycophants bark at each other.
Makes me laugh. Makes me pity them.
And I still can't conjure up in my mind what Salmon could have said that, to Kent, would swiftly change public perception if it was revealed. I cannot imagine what an 11-12 year old said that could be bad enough to allow Ricky Stuart calling him a weak gutted dog 12 years on to seem like a rational decision.
No mate, you need to follow the conversation. I never said you said you agreed with what Ricky said, I was offering a point of view. Al ittle defensive there...mate.You need to learn how to follow a conversation mate, because I've never once said that Ricky was right to air any grievance about Salmon in the way he did at an NRL press conference, including just calling him a weak gutted dog person just for the deliberate kick on Starling.
However as nobody in here actually knows what happened between the Salmon and Stuart families nobody has the moral authority to say that Stuart has no right to still have a grievance about it 10 years later.
It's a weird argument being made by the same people who are all like "hey man, my friends and I used to call each other spastics all the time, so I don't know why Ricky is upset about that!"
