    I think all public figures need to tread carefully at times

    It wasnt an off the cuff comment - it was a planned statement

    Mate, why should she wait? What makes her different to everyone else who had their say? She called for zero tolerance IF HE WAS FOUND GUILTY and suggested that the NRL had been having a laugh with their treatment of high profile players in the past.

    How was that wrong?

    Yeah they do. Hence the prefix of innocent until proven guilty. No way could she just say what she said without that, regardless of how on the money it was.

    It doesn't invalidate anything she said, and it doesn't mean she was inferring guilt.

    You can't just paste the press for making a comment in a current affairs story she was involved in. That is literally their job. They drafted a perfectly reasonable and factual article about a star NRL commentator being mentioned in a court hearing as having an affair.

    Why would a woman who has sex for free care about a plight specific to make sex workers?

    People care about plights that don't affect them. For example, the Footy Show last night ran a segment on brain cancer (and good on them for doing it) and as far as I know, none of them have it.

    I think it's strange that you think people who take a stand on an issue only do it to protect their own kind??

    Putting aside the benefits of virtue signalling, some people are just full of guilt and sympathy. I understand why they do it. What I don't understand is why you would expect everyone to feel that way. Most people have their own problems to worry about.

    And it's not 'taking a stand' if there is no risk or net cost.

    Does anyone think he's going to see his union contract out being half way around the globe from Fiji?

    For the amount of money he would be getting, yeah why not.

    Once you need to get to the airport and catch a plane does another few hours really make a difference?

    I don't think it does. An hour's flight is as much of a f**karound as a six hour flight. A 20 hour flight is obviously more of a f**karound but easily worth an extra couple hundred grand a year salary.
