Rothfield and Kent now on NRL 360, uuuggggh
Kent implying the only reason the game hasn’t folded is due to Journos keeping the NRL on its toes and holding them accountable. f**k up you incredible merkin. All you do is write unsubstantiated drivel and steal other people’s opinions.
He tweets how shit the game is, citing that penalties are ruining the game, and when he gets called out for being the negative merkin he is, he runs to the AFL to say how much money they have and how little the NRL have.
Keep digging, stupid.
I used to tolerate 360 but never since that filthy old merkin somehow wormed his way on there
About time people called this clown out on tv.
Paul Kent says rugby league will be 'bankrupt, busted and we won't have a game' if media don't hold NRL to account

NRL 360 co-host Paul Kent has launched an extraordinary attack on the NRL, claiming the game will go broke if its administrators aren’t held to account by the media.
Kent’s comments on Monday night come after NRL CEO Todd Greenberg called for fans to “ignore the crisis merchants” in a tweet posted on Sunday morning.
We will always be debating the performances of Clubs, players, administrators, referees, rules, etc but if you love Rugby League then talk it up & share your positivity. Ignore the crisis merchants & support your club & the game! #NRLtalkthegameup

Greenberg was responding to a tweet from The Daily Telegraph sports-editor-at-large Phil Rothfield, who said on Saturday night that “rugby league is now a shit game".

Speaking on the Fox League programme on Monday night, Kent says the game faces a dire future if the NRL aren’t scrutinised by the media.
“I think it’s dangerous for the NRL to try and school its public that us media are crisis merchants and that our thoughts on the game should be ignored in preference to the spin that they continually pump out,” Kent said.
“Because if we don’t keep some of those people in there accountable to their jobs, then one day we will wake up and rugby league will be bankrupt, and busted, and we won’t have a game.
“We don’t have money in the game and we’ve got a lot of problems there and to try and sit there and put this shiny face on it all the time is insulting to us, but most particularly the fans.”
Kent’s co-host Ben Ikin agreed, accusing the NRL of being selective when it comes to defending itself from criticism.
“It also seems to me that Todd Greenberg only takes umbrage to criticism of those that work at the NRL and the job that they do,” Ikin added.
“Whenever it’s a player, or a club, that’s fallen or stumbled and done a poor job of what they’re supposed to be doing he doesn’t say the same thing.”
Rothfield toned down his original comment in another tweet on Sunday night, but reiterated his displeasure with the current state of the game on the same programme.
I’ve thought long and hard today about my ‘shit’ tweet last night and would like to say the following.

“I’m sorry, I can’t lie, I haven’t enjoyed rugby league this year as much as I have in previous years,” Rothfield said.
“I go to one game and I watch the rest on TV, I’m not on the edge of my seat, there’s too many penalties… It’s the way I feel.”
the world would be be a better place if Paul Kent had been stillborn
Harsh but fair.
Nrl journalism needs a massive clean out. Get rid of the dinosaurs and bring in some fresh minds
Funny how he isn't enjoying the game when his team are playing shithouse.
Maybe he can go back to supporting the Saints...
Maybe he should lay off the grog that way he wouldn’t have to defend himself against his drunken tweets.
2 light beers and 2 glasses of wine at the races.
So half a carton and a bag of goon outside Miranda TAB?
Watching the dribbler on Controversy Corner & he tells us Jackson Hastings has been banished to Bankstown, Manlys feeder club. Is he aware their feeder club is Blacktown? Deadset, a moron of the highest order.
Half a carton and the goon sack were his races pre drinks.
I've been told he was a Balmain fan until he moved to The Shire.
Smacks of someone irrelevant thinking they’re relevant.
Exactly ....he's just a sh*t stirring troll.
