TAANE MILNE



  • Reports about that Mounties (Raiders feeder club)are throwing a life line to Milne after he serves his suspension thoughts out there?for me its seems all to easy for players who wish to transgress to get back in especially after a second strike it should be an automatic rule that you get one chance and if your not strong enough to rehabilitate yourself it should be a ban from playing the game in Australia we dont need drugs in sport no matter what social attitudes are.

    It is too easy. If a player has his contract terminated due to indiscretions, then they should not be able to play for another club for a full 26 rounds of football. If they are in the final year of their contract, then they only serve the remainder of the that contract as they would have been a free agent the following year anyway.

    On Milne personally, I don’t care. Not too worried about him. The Raiders have sacked so many good players only for those players to line up against them straight away, it’s not fair, so if they get an average one back good luck to them. Hopefully the NRL will eventually sort this out but don’t hold your breath. It’s the weakest organisation in the world.



  • People should be given a chance to redeem themselves and show that they can become better people. His history will make it difficult for him to secure work as a footballer in the future and will have reduced his worth on the market. Drug use/addiction is a complex matter and ostracising someone is just getting to push them further away from society rather than bring them back into it.

    Of course they should be given chances, I agree with that. But they should not be allowed to walk straight into a direct competitors office of the team they let down. What does that teach them? Its time society toughened up instead of cuddling these clowns. Put a process in place, help them become better people, but don’t just let them walk into another club. Make them do counciling, make them work a normal job, make them miss the game for a while. Once that’s completed, and they have shown the willingness to complete that process, then allow another NRL contract to be registered.

    I agree with that and feel that proper supports need to be put in place before a return to the game. I was more referring to the post above saying that should be cut if they are not tough enough.

  • If he can redeem himself, great. Everyone deserves a second chance.



  • Milne will be on his third chance.

    Why do you care so much? Is it because he was with us when it happened?

  • Did the Tigers know of his first offence at the Dragons ? If not it is unfair that the Tigers signed him in good faith.



  • how about we STOP been soft and making the clubs responsible for there welfare. how about players start taking responsibility for there own poor and illegal choices. this is way the world is in such a downward spiral because all the dogooders want everyone else to feel it was there fault.i like everyone else was told the basics by my parents dont steal dont take drugs and so on. so lets stop been baby sitters and make them stand on there own feet.
