    Wow, that was quite a rant.

    I'm sure you're smart enough to know that you have contradicted yourself a few times. But that aside, if Stallion upsets you so much, why don't you just ignore him? If not, you must enjoy the banter and argument. Surely you don't get off on letting someone upset you.

    Springs09. You are proving to be both ignorant and apathetic. To enlighten you (I know this won't work but anyway): There are just as many that support my information and comments than deride them.Trying to think your 'heroic' stance is for the good of rugby league or common decency is lunacy. So you continue to deride even those whom are balanced and here for the good of the code. And your rant about the Lions not playing the Kangaroos deserves much more publicity and scorn from rugby league fans. I happen to be one of those rugby league fans. I sense you would rather see this massive scheduling mistake go through to the keeper?Some of us don't and know it's a bad call .A real BAD CALL by rugby league administrators.

    Stallion doesn't upset me. We've been perfectly fine arguing and what not and if I ever get annoyed I stop responding, like an adult.

    I was responding to the hypocrisy of a 'staff member' who for some reason has decided to call out abuse towards Stallion while ignoring most of the abuse that goes on in the rest of the forum, while being abusive himself.

    Seriously, 'stop calling him names like a pathetic moron' has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever read on this website.

    Also deleted my post that had a light-hearted go at his nonsense rant. Reason - 'grow up'. Pretty sure I'm not the one who needs to grow up.

    The 'abuse' Stallion cops on the international forum is nothing compared to shit in the NRL forum. If Albert or T-Boon makes a thread in there it's non-stop barrage of shit for about 10 pages.

    What on Earth are you on about now?

    I'm usually the one who supports your opinions. The thing is no one enjoys you making 50 posts a day about the same thing, nor does anyone enjoy you doubting their support of RL because they've had enough of your rants. Like seriously we have been over and over the Lions in Australia thing. I agree with you, I've written to the NRL about it, we've discussed it and there's nothing more we can do about it. Continuously ranting on a forum about it doesn't help anyone or anything, it only annoys the people that agree with you. Use that energy for something more constructive.

    I have to disagree here - once a mod spots those kinds of things (because members whinge about it but don't bother to actually report it to bring it instantly to a mod's attention), it's usually pushed to the Cave.

    What has being a staff member got to do with it?

    May have been a different tale if you had played on a Saturday.

    And it appears others have. Graham LOWE being a high profile example to date. I get the feeling it's not just Graham Lowe though. Just a hunch?

    There was no league on Saturdays, we were all playing rugby.

    Nobody would have an issue with you saying it’s a hunch but normally you use this one example of systematic oppression.

    You have heard the statement : "Where there is smoke there is fire " A reasonable hunch given the vulnerable state of the rugby league code in NZ.

    I have heard it but it doesn’t make it a fact. I’m not saying it’s not true either. Simply if you’re going to make statements be prepared to say it’s an opinion or provide evidence.

    He's made it clear this is his opinion, I think it's time for BOTD and moving onto the next discussion.

    ? From what the link shows its a joint Rugbyleague and Netball club? Might have missed some fine print somewhere?

    It has RL,RU,netball and basketball jnr teams running under the one club. It was traditionally a RU club but couple of years ago joined the NRLWA RL jnr program as well.

    A great shot of a future Pirate maybe?

    IMO the cricket test would have had a very minimal impact on viewing numbers for the RLWC final.

    Any day of a cricket test match goes for approx. 7 hours as opposed to a 2 hour rugby league match. I can't imagine that anyone who was interested in the RLWC final wouldn't have flicked over to that when it started and flicked back to the cricket in breaks of play.
