I understand that it is a convenient narrative for some to push, though to show another example, there is enough evidence out there that even though in the much safer outdoor environment, we all know which group in the situation shown below during the protest are more likely to pass on the virus.
.

FG, why exactly is it a “convenient narrative for some to push”? Can you please expand on exactly what that narrative is and please nominate who here is “pushing” that narrative?

@formerguest? Care to elaborate?

No need to when my post had already been replied to by Tom, Dick and Mr Grant, plus you have now doubled down on it since.

Ok so you have clarified that it was directed at me. Coward. Gutless coward.

There is a very strong need to FG. I find it pretty disgusting that you could potentially post a defamatory or inflammatory accusation out there without clarification. If you are going to make these kind of accusations, at least have the courage of your convictions to back up your words otherwise it is a weak gutless smear.

Your call. Either have the courage to back up and elaborate on what you meant or slither off with weasel words like a gutless coward.

The realisation is we all will to have leave our homes / go to work and open our boarders and live with this virus ! Many are going to die …as locking ourselves away is only going prolong this virus for years and our country and others will not be able to with stand the financial burden . Until there is some sought of vaccine we are just going to have to deal with it and our lives will never be the same … unfortunately the older generation which I am included will be most in harms way but we will have to accept this fact ! The WHO has released data pointing to around 99% of the infected will survive .

Stats stats and more stats. Let’s look at this another way. I predicted at the beginning that the USA will have 100million infected by Christmas. I’ve seen nothing to change my mind. That’s 1 Million dead. Is that acceptable, to just get on with it?

Yes that’s an acceptable number when you have a population over 800 million and a way of eradicating the virus over 700 thousand died in the US with the Spanish flue alone! Countries in the EU are doing just this and will deal with the deaths to save there sovereignty and economy’s .

Not a lot of facts in that post Snake. US has a population of 330M. Name a country other than Sweden in Europe that is adopting a herd immunity strategy?

Apparently if Reynolds didn’t get suspended brooks was a good chance of being dropped… but it’ll be him and Benji in the halves next week I reckon.

Says who…?

From people I know… considering he dropped Benji I wouldn’t put it past him to drop brooks

YOu know Christian Niccolusi?

1 try assist for the year is petty damning stat

It’s unbelievable. He’s had a terrible year and last night his performance was indefensible.

His cutout ball put Mbye away to pass to Hoffman . He gets zilcho for that , and Mbye gets the try assist for the draw and pass . There’s at least 5 -6 others like that this year .
You guys are just sitting there waiting for a Bad game to prove your point . Bunch of agenda driven douche bags

It doesn’t matter what you point out in games that he does it’s just countered with he’s crap…nothing you can do

Brooks took the line on and got a quick play the ball when Grant put Aloiai over Brooks also put in both attacking kicks one which Rowdy caught on the line in the 1st half and Nofoaluma seemed took have knocked forward… defensively he had a poor game by his standards but still put a hit on Sua that forced a mistake…

Don’t matter cause he’s crap

Brooks did have a poor game, and was still the best of the three halves we had on the fields. Many of the Brooks bashers are Reynolds fan boys. Go figure

I don’t think fan boys is accurate. It’s west’s fans that are tired of watching Brooks trudge out the same rubbish year in year out. I’m sure someone will say he won dally M, if he was behind a better pack or insert your excuse. If Madge is serious, Brooks needs a spell on the bench.

I don’t agree with you but I respect your right to that opinion. My question is, who do you replace him with that is assured of being better?

Don’t care, bring walters in and have Benji/JR rotate. How much worse could it be? There’s no easy answer but sticking with Brooks is not the way forward. I’d like to say he’s complacent and some time off might push him to be better but I honestly think he’s just not very good and what we’re seeing is his best. I mean, does he have any try assists this year? I can’t think of any without digging through the records.

Anyways, our stocks are thin and I don’t think they’ll drop him so I guess we just have to get used to being 9th.

You pick the best player and at WT it’s Brooks. Doesn’t get the Try Assist hut Brooks set up Hoffman’s try with his pass to moses

I’d like to see Jock Madden have a run

With Brooks or replacing him?

Keep an eye on Charlie Staines playing for Penrith today, he’s a young talented back who I believe is available to talk to come November

He is quick and plays well.

Very quick. Still just a kid but he has skills, don’t know how likely he is to leave Penrith though. Can play anywhere in the backline including fullback

He is not a Panther junior but another good country player from Forbes.

Panthers group has bought so many small RSL and Leagues clubs, anything west of Kellyville is Penrith

My young bloke plays div 1 for Emu plains and at every game there’s always 2 Pamfers talent scouts with their clipboards …
Massive nursery to scout from .

No doubt. My point is Bathurst, Wellington, Wagga Wagga etc, these places are all Pamfers nursery now too because of money poured into local clubs. These kids are brought from the bush into SG Ball

I’d have to go back and watch the tape but I thought Hoffman made a number of bad decisions and I don’t think those were necessarily Mbye’s fault.

Or to put it another way, Mbye defended fine the past few weeks with different wingers, but tonight our LHD got destroyed, and the difference was the new kid and Brooks missing more tackles than usual.

Last week it was the RHD being exploited.

But I don’t see any specific reason to crucify Mbye, which is a favoured past-time on here, slightly ahead of lambasting Brooks. Hoffman isn’t a winger clearly, and he went in of his own accord many times. The winger either goes in with his centre or stays out, but Hoffman did neither, kept getting caught in-between.

Not going to lash the kid, first game, but I don’t see this being Mbye’s fault.

Or to put it another way, Nofo for years has been savaged about running too far in from wing and taking nobody / turning like a bus, but Mbye gets blamed for Hoffman doing the same thing? They attacked Hoffman all night and waited for him to make his defensive play every time they went to their right.

Exactly, and Mbye had to scream up a few times to try to stop it because he could see Hoffman out of position.

If you are going to scream up make sure of 1 thing stop the man.

I think in just about all the try scoring plays they cut his man out
