Nrl plans for a 20 team comp

Our game is basing its expansion footprint on politics, too. It could very well come back to bite the game on the arse.

The ARLC boxed itself in a corner when it tried to force players to wear a jersey promoting homosexuality. There are a lot of devoutly Christian Polynesian players who took offence because it goes against their religion.
PNG nrl side is all politics

So is Perth

It could backfire spectacularly on us in the long run. If the Perth team doesn't generate as much money from tourism as the WA Gov is banking on then the amount of support they provide will probably drop considerably. We don't know how much community support there will be for a Perth-based team once the novelty of it wears off and the Eagles and Dockers find some form. It could be worse than the Titans.

I don't know what to make of PNG. It will struggle to recruit quality players and rely on handouts for decades. So far we've only got a 10 year commitment from Albo. If it goes wrong then the problems it will cause the NRL will make AwFuL's investment in the Giants and Suns look small.

Go flog yourself mate. And go get a hiding on the 4 corners thread while you’re at it. You are considered a mental Pygmy there. And stay on topic here instead of flogging off your miserable pommie commie agenda. Whinging turd.
talking on behalf of others again I see mate.

as for staying on topic one of the favourite bids for expansion is purely based on geopolitics so you’re just plain wrong again.

If you really wanted to help the people of PNG then you’d support Chinese investment and infrastructure projects instead of an absurd vanity project destined to fail.
If the PNG Gov provides tax cuts to anyone who plays for a Port Moresby-based team then people should protest against it. An NRL player who pays tax can help the PNG Gov fund infrastructure projects that benefit the country.

Why are @Vlad59 and @MugaB having a hissyfit?

Neither of them started the thread!

WB started the thread. If he's happy to talk about politics then that's his perogative. If the other two don't like it then they're free to f**k off.
Here's the thing, we all have notifications for the expansion threads, you guys being the cowards you are want to speak about shit most people try not to avoid, purely coming to the threads to talk about real issues affecting our beloved sport along with.... ahhh... f**k it you wouldn't understand due to me not talking in fluent potato ... spud, potatoes, pot tatters, toe pot spuds spuddly

The Nazis were disgusted by the horrible way the Croats massacred large numbers of Serbs in concentration camps.

Israel is doing the same thing to Palestinians.
