Equal when then the fulltime shooter sounds and a point each. Just how it should always be in every competition match.

RE: Why Maguire's Tigers will be different
Hopefully, many more will look at the traitor’s tenure without the rose coloured glasses, nor those tainted with hate of his predecessor. He took over a team not of his making early into a season, sure, but unlike Taylor who had little say and no money, the traitor had a bucket full of cap money and half a roster to fill to his liking for his first full season.
Even with such luxuries, he still dogged those same players that believed in him, by preparing to bail out on them mid season. I have an extremely low opinion of the man and doubt it will ever change.
RE: ‘I feel sorry for anyone who supports us’: Ivan Cleary vows to make changes at Penrith
So good! Can we sticky the press conference?
Thanks for sharing the traitor’s press conference. Think it is the first opposition one that I have bothered to watch, but enjoyed it immensely and especially Rothfield (?) asking him if he would call on Gould for advice, priceless.
RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
I know what your saying but if he’s available to play NRL we shouldn’t be the games social conscience. Someone is gonna sign him.
Well let them sign him, as I want to be part of a club that has social consciousness and fosters a family atmosphere.
Knuckle dragging type players have no place in modern society and WT are leading the way in creating a female friendly environment. If players don’t like it and want to live in the past or be part of a boys club, the NRL should recommend they join a certain political party.
RE: 'It's his team': Brooks putting Tigers veterans in their place
One of the better it’s my team articles I’ve read…some nice honesty from Farah both on Brooks and his own short comings/ego…
And pretty well exactly what many have been concerned about for a good few years now. Whilst many others have been stating that Brooks had to take matters into his own hands, it has always been unreasonable to expect that with many extremely strong personalities surrounding him.
For mine, it was always Robbie’s job to accommodate him as he was very experienced by the time Luke came along. Too bad it took so long, as it may have saved a lot of dirty water flowing under the WT bridge and not divided the supporters.
@gallagher maybe, but not much point in the coach keeping Momirovski travelling with the team in the nineteen if he is not going to use him.
We are fast approaching June 30 and hope we are targeting a player that is as comfortable at the back, as he is as a threequarter.
RE: Too Early For Humble Pie?
Critical with some level of discussion is what most people do. A very small % just lay into players or the club. Be it opinion or fact most of the people accused of being critical are simply discussing the things they think can be improved.
In general, yeah and and I am happy to be critical when it is reasonably deserved. Still some of the crap on here of late has been nothing sort of crazy, with the dump Brooks to reserve grade and/or put him on the market rubbish at the top level of ridiculousness.
RE: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here
Laughable that in general, the coalition government are saying that the discussion in the wake of Christchurch should not be political. Absolute rubbish!
For more than twice the lifetime of my eight year old son, those parties have been fostering hate and creating a divide in our community since they started creating fear, winning an election on the back of knowingly and fraudulently claiming that asylum seekers were throwing their children overboard, whilst also having refused to allow the ill equipped private Norwegian rescue ship Tampa to disembark rescued refugees from another sinking fishing vessel.
There is no doubt that the Australian terrorist responsible for the horrendous massacre of our New Zealand neighbors was affected in some way by their words and actions, just as are people that I know, have been by the consistent narrative.
Quite ironic that most of those people aboard that sinking fishing boat were fleeing a country to which the next month we deployed troops, with our armed services still having a presence to this day.
Edited. Plus, as a hundred or so of those refugees were taken in by New Zealand, I wonder if any of them, or their families, were present at this attack?t
RE: Pascoe sanctioned by the NRL
Nah, doesn’t wash with me as it was never about getting more and/or better players to fit into our cap, nor a calculated and systemic rort. The CEO mutters that it is all about fairness and then a day later hands out what is still a whopping penalty, for something that had reasonable public knowledge and has not even been finalised.
Half the salary cap fine may have some merit as it was obviously a transgression of the rules, but I can in no way accept this penalty being even close to fair.
RE: Indigenous All Stars do not sing the National Anthem
Certainly agree on the England bit and their terrible policies, but have never heard any indigenous person complain about the convicts sent here, rather their masters. I watched the anthem and note that at least a few were indeed singing along, well at least lip syncing, but I understand those that chose not to, and particularly as they were not representing their country. After all, they would be singing along to support a foreign head of state whose forbears took their land by force, whilst also having no recognition in the nation’s constitution formed by similar peoples.
I am 53 and part of this modern Australia that you write of, one in which some remote indigenous had their first contact with the colonists, were not allowed to vote, continuing to have their children stolen and in some areas, still suffering from aparthied like segregation.
Sure, I was too young to have any bearing on that situation, but my parents, their siblings and many generations beforehand were. My family has enjoyed the fruits of past indiscretions and reaped the enduring benefits of land grants etcetera of policies past, so a little guilt should rightly fall on my and similar other’s shoulders.
RE: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here
The honest truth is that while the boomers are around, policy will always lean towards their self serving ways.
I don’t agree that Bill didn’t sell his policies well enough. He vallently tried to take the biggest demographic on, for the first time in my memory, and lost.
Nailed it Hammer, though I think that a lot of us born up to, say the end of the Vietnam war are also of a similar cloth, with greed seemingly being at the forefront. Of course not all, but enough that generalisation is fair.
I find it really strange that this has been the outcome, particularly as we were overwhelmingly brought up in a Christian environment that was all about community and caring for others. What the hell happened to so many of these kids that used to share everthing.
In another post you spoke of talking about pollution rather than coining the issue as climate change or it’s predecessor, global warming. To extend on your black liquid running our vehicles, another derivative being plastic, which is everywhere, even as a lining inside aluminum cans and many still line their garbage bins with them.
From large families putting out a half filled 50 odd litre bin, we here have transformed into households with often overflowing multiple ones up to 240 litres. Many kids see nearly all their food and drink packaged in plastic, let alone the toys and live amongst a myriad of chemicals.
Marry this with driving past piles of glue and pulp furniture along these streets, and if at night, to now have hardly any insects on our windscreens, it shows just how much damage we are doing to our planet.
