why the ARL/NRL did not strip Andrew Johns of his Dally M medals, after revelations in his interview with Phil Gould, and then the rugby league fraternity go on and immortalise him. what message does that send to kids?

some radio/t.v commentators are not happy with the way the NRL is run, :?: become an administrator and make positive changes.
not happy with a certain coach's performances., simple become a coach, see how they go. :roll:

They were't performance enhancing, but had he of tested positive to taking them through his career he would have faced a long suspension.

Here are my unpopular opinions:
1. Rabbits and Hadley are overrated commentators - warren smith and Andrew voss much better. Lockyer adds no value and johns not much more. Keep sterlo - get rid of the rest.
2. AFL is phenomenally better managed and marketed.
3. The rugby league establishment are trying to cover up the drugs issue by discrediting asada and not cooperating.
4. The tigers youth of 3-4 years ago aren't improving with the exception of farah.

1. wests-tigers are too nice. need to be able to rip opponents heads off in the blink of an eye.
2. no on- line betting to be televised, as well as all bet making stop 2 hours before games..
3. on game day, all 3 grades to be played at SAME location.
4. monday night footy to go, have it start at 3 pom on a saturday.
5. no more golden point.
6. shoulder charges, get 5 min in sin bin.

I have an idea to help open the game up a bit

Every time a player gets penalized that player must sit out one full set of six

The Eels will place higher on the ladder than us.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

As a person Robbie probably isn't everybodies cup of tea but as a captain we couldn't ask any more of him. He is a champion ON the field, not sure about off it.

Yeah but i think theres a few people who would cop to that. At the end of the day though as long as he doesn't going around in his spare time kicking babies, the only thing that maters for supporters is what he does on the field

- merritt is the most overrated player in the game
- thurston and queensland origin players in general are mostly out of form (barring inglis, hodges, scott) and if form is anything to go by NSW should win this series
- ferguson is nowhere near ready for origin, still gives away costly penalties and can miss crucial tackles
- fulton is the least effective backrower in the comp in terms of attacking prowess and hurting the opposition in defence.
- farah is the best hooker in the comp this year by a long way
- cronk has cost melbourne at least 2 victories this year from poor end-of-game kicking
He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learnt the secret of life.

My Dislike is based on what he does on the field.

I dont know him personally.

He is our most wholehearted player, shudder to think how bad we would be travelling without him out there. Goes a bit overboard with the whinging to ref's but most of the time it is warranted.

when Slater, Cronk & Smith finishes their time at storm, Bellamy wont be able to cope with not having a competitive team,. He will retire, the franchise will re-locate or cease to exist completely

Can't say it would be too unpopular if the Storm folded. There would be plenty of people who would welcome it. They are scum. Successful,yes, but cheating scum all the same.

My most unpopular opinion:

Greg Inglis 'summersaulted' and deliberately landed on his head in each of those spear tackles perpetrated by Inu, Jason King and Richie Fauoso, in order to gain a penalty for his team.

Be interested to see if anyone's opinions have changed?
