What do you expect in Australia? :lol:

You lot have trouble with multiculturalism so homophobia isn't surprising :cool:

Last time I checked half of Sydney didn't get burnt down in a race riot three years ago...that was North London.

This is seriously a massive issue? :?

Ask Bateman how he feels and move along. Chances are he's probably already forgotten about it.
Who hasn't called someone else gay in their lifetime? If he's actually gay and the remark was meant to be a serious jab at that, then there is an issue. Otherwise, who the f**k cares

Didn't the NRL just sign up to the whole anti homophobia government thing a few weeks ago lol they'll probably look like hypocrites if no action is taken.

I take it you've never told a friend of yours he's gay, even as a joke? :roll:
Never even said something was 'gay' because you didn't like it huh?

Where did I say i was for homophobia when I clearly said if Batemen is actually gay then such an insult is an issue, and action must be taken?

Scrap the under 20's game. A breeding ground for hate fueled violence.

The ya-hooing and carrying on by the blues was spiteful, hateful and un-called for in a under 20's comp that should be highlighting future talent, not future thugs and bullies.
Either get real refs and have send-offs to maintain the hate, or scrap this non event.
I have just posted the NRL REPORT OVER ON THE TROLL CAVE UNDER WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR THE GAME 2017. If your interested. No skin off my nose if you dont care.

Can't find it bro. Looking forward to reading the oikee mein kempf.

What part of using that as a put down is offensive do you not understand?

In the modern day professionalism and PR is vital. Perception is reality. Sponsors and the like will run away screaming if homophobia is tolerated.

Using 'gay' as an insult is homophobia, plain and simple.

So I take it the word 'gay' has never left your mouth?

Frankly I am much more insulted that he feels that calling someone he name for a beautiful lady part is an insult. What a mysogonistic way of thinking to automatically assume being called a merkin is an insult simply because it's something women have.

Even the male run site that is LU feels the need to censor the word, while dick, c**k, meat wand, et all go unabated.

Women in league should be outraged at this outdated thinking. We need to take back the word merkin as a perfectly acceptable and positive term.
