    Judges have been known to look at compelling evidence as well and come up with a judgement that leaves you questioning whether they actually looked at it at all. Money to pay for better representation often helps. Not suggesting this is the case in this instance either. Domestic violence often leaves the victim looking like the perpetrator..... Hard to prove when the victim is often abused in private and with no other evidence other than their word against another.

    Well, I'm sure that happens sometimes, but the average 'head scratcher' often reflects the public's opinion based a journalists reporting of a decision, which frequently omits half the argument, half the law upon which the decision is based, and half the evidence, and is aimed at selling papers by stirring people up.

    Yeh, it's pretty tough. Though I don't necessarily disagree with the gist of what The Colonel is saying.

    There are no winners in any of this.

    Don't disagree. Two sides to every story. She sounds like a piece of work herself. If it wasn't an NRL player involved it probably wouldn't have received any of the attention it has unless murder was the end result.

    Rarely any winners in any of these situations. DV is seriously a highly emotional issue in the media at the moment. It can be used by the 'victim' which is what it seems to have happened in this case but another victim can also cop more interrogation than the accused because of these situations.

    Canberra are my second team based on the fact that my brother is a supporter so I spent years watching their games with him.

    Apart from that, I like seeing teams who are important to the comp go well. The Cowboys and Warriors, mainly and, yes, the Storm. We need these teams to do well so that rugby league does well. When Perth and Brisbane2 come in I will be wishing them all the best.

    All of that, however, is only dependent on Parramatta winning. Really, that's the only thing that matters.

    I work with a kiwi and he is a massive union fan.

    I said "isnt everyone in nz just a union fan" and he told me"the warriors are actually massive in nz, especially being a 1 country team as opposed to union having 5 teams"

    I hate Melbourne....but it's very hard to overtake 30 years of blind hatred.
    Canterbury are easily my most hated team by far.
    I actually cheer the Storm when they play against them. Literally. In that GF they played against each other a few years ago I was jumping up and cheering every single Storn try.

    The more people who publicly tip us to miss the 8 the better as far as I'm concerned.

    I can see why people have tipped us not to make the 8. On paper Brisbane and the cowboys are standouts.
    I reckon after that every team is quite equal bar titans-knights-tigers. And other then Titans the other two will be competetive.
    Injuries -goal kicking -ref calls - origin period will decide most of the others

    Also unnecessary and inappropriate question mark in the opening sentence.

    It's all dependent on injuries and a bit of luck. Don't buy in to this forecast, predict the future sh*t.
