    the bigwigs at the NRL have strange memories..

    you can be forgotten if you've been in the comp for 50 years..

    you can be forgotten if you've won a premiership in the last 2 seasons..

    you can be forgotten if you've had the only widespread ASADA ban in rugby league history...



    but you piss in your own mouth just once....

    I know what you mean you can stomp on people heads and still play the game, Go on a rampage in New York and still play the game, Carney didn't harm anyone and yet can't let that bloke play he a menace to society

    It’s not the comparative merits of the incidents themselves, it’s the shear number of incidents in Carney’s case. He’s the original repeat offender. Why should the game take the risk on him yet again after being burned by him multiple times? As Gus said, perhaps he’s grown up. But he still has a bigger hurdle than either the other two to justify his return.

    If the NY Times puts a rugby league story in the rugby section of its sports pages I wouldn't expect them to cover the real issues.

    Reminds me of the time Darryl Eastlake tried out for the central commentary position.

    He might not know much about the nrl but he knows what a degustation is.

    Which is far more important when discussing changes to the business.

    Any reasonable person would be thinking ...why in f**ks name does he not know the answer?
    Especially considering Gould even told him the answer.

    What else is he clueless about in regards to the NRL?

    Who hires these f**king dopes?

    The fact he got it wrong is almost expected, the scarey part is he is the bloke they’ve hired to be in charge.

    Surely a good knowledge of the history of the game and even an actual interest in the game would be a prerequisite for the top job.

    I don’t buy this he misheard the question bullshit.
    He was clueless and admitted it.

    This is no different to politics.

    Just like putting some clown in as health minister who doesn't know the difference between a tibia and smegma.

    Seeing how well the 'jobs for the boys' approach has worked in the past maybe it is better if he doesn't know shit about the game..
