Your most unpopular opinion about league

Post by Sataris » Tue 16 Apr, 2013 10:32 pm

Got this idea from another website.

What is your most unpopular opinion about league that most people would disagree with you about? No negging people for disagreeing.

Mine is that most of the 'passion' surrounding SOO is manufactured and not to be taken seriously.

the knights dragon game a couple of weeks ago... gus kept calling or hinting the game as boring coz it was just hit up, tackle, kick chase over and over again.

i quite enjoyed that game.. and idk if most people consider that boring, but i enjoyed it.

actually.. the way gus keeps placing so much importance of "game breakers" like hayne, benji, barba etc. and most of the times pays no attention to the workhorses...usually implementing that they are inferior to the "game breakers".. really gives me the shts

Benji is the most overrated player in the game now and doesn't earn half of his paycheck anymore

Cameron Smith is a mediocre footballer, who has played his entire career in teams full of players who are brilliant.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

I think that josh Reynolds is a grub, he is dirty in every little thing he does, hits high, swings with the arm, sledges, hands all over the ball, hands all over face of players!

Grub!

I'm in the middle with this, but see what you are getting at.
I rarely see individual brilliance, it's more consistently good!

Lately, yes.

At his best, at least he could earn closer the 3/4 of his pay lol

Unpopular opinion? Well......

Cooper Cronk has only come good after a majority of his career in mediocrity, he has stood on the shoulders of giants while he plodded away until only in recent years becoming what could finally be considered a decent/top halfback in his own right. Something he never would have achieved at any other club that was following the cap.

Everyone acting like he was destined for this level is kidding themselves and nobody says anything because its akin to telling the emperor he has no clothes.

Love the idea behind this thread and it's true because i disagree with pretty much everything everyone has said. Paticularly about Smith & Cronk and the "gamebreakers."

Benji, i can live with

The NRL/Rugby League is fighting a losing battle in the western corridor of Sydney, and will never succeed. It needs to place expansion as its highest priority into Queensland and Western Australia if it is to have a future.

I think league is dying slowly. The battle it faces now with soccer and afl. It's slowly fading and it will wont be long before we see Friday night a league on tv.

As someone involved in junior sport I think rugby league promotion is atrocious. The sport will lose out to AFL and soccer, both of which have great junior programs.

Remove the salary cap and make it survival of the fittest.

Yep I agree , but also fear that the Wests Tigers would be one of the first four to fail and die

If Smith And Cronk aren't very good players ,then who is ??

The biggest problem facing the NRL is the Sydney media.

There is an entire generation of journalists who have made their living hacking away at the game while their pathetic News Ltd. puppet Gallop just bent over, grabbed his ankles and lovingly took it.

It has put us 20 years behind where we should be

Just remember, you asked. As much as I love Leicharddt & Campbeltown we need to make a clean cut. Our Heritage began in 2000 & that's as far back as Wests Tigers should look back. Forget Balmain & Wests they should be disassociated with the current club. s*** days like Sunday should be consigned to the bin, just another excuse for old Wests & Tigers fans to stir things up

Play our games out of the SFS until the Gov build a purpose built RL stadium like Suncorp.

Our Heritage game should be against the Cowboys
