NRL and other Australian Rugby League Discussion
I won't conform if the powers that be try to censor free speech.jirskyr wrote: ↑Thu 09 Aug, 2018 9:59 pmYou've just contradicted yourself.TIGER wrote: ↑Thu 09 Aug, 2018 5:57 pmI don't buy this "you're gonna have to get used to it, that's how society is going"jirskyr wrote: ↑Thu 09 Aug, 2018 4:26 pmI think some of you commenting here will find it continually disturbing the direction the game is going - you aren't going to out-compete AFL if you cannot encourage and maintain the involvement of women and kids in rugby league.
Personally I am ok with it - let a ref use their best judgement. Gallen got in trouble for calling Paea a black **** and you can't be using those slurs either racist, homophobic or otherwise. Personally I would have given him 10 mins to cool his heels, but not my call.
Sorry if you don't like it, but that's the way society is going. Demps said something similar, not sure if he's being genuine or sarcastic.
Why do you think they got tough on punching, because players were being hurt? No, because it's a bad look for the game and times change, views change about such things.
Epere will cop, what, a 1 match suspension max?
We're the ones who decide how society goes. I'm not one to conform
You can't both decide how society goes, and not conform. Unless you want to help decide how society goes, watch the majority go that way, then non-conform for the sake of it.
I won't conform to this idea that "this is the way things are going so get used to it buddy"
If things are going that way it doesn't mean I have to, I'll run against the grain till the day I drop.
(A little Primus lyric for you music fans at the end there)
A little silly that a month ago we were laughing at Burgess sledging an injured Farah with much worse language. Unless the players have a code of conduct stating what they can and can't say to opposition players I don't think the ref should be marching players for this. If he had been warned then maybe she has somewhat of a leg to stand on.
