Whats your timeframe here Watto. Being extremely serious, because everyone knows Lodge has jumped jurisdiction on this one, hence the argument that he has zero intention of making good in any way, shape or form.
If you personally cannot see the difference between someone doing time, then making the financial restitution in a prompt manner once they re-enter the workforce, and Lodge running away on a technicality then there is no talking sense to you.
I whole heartedly agree that neither can take their offences back, not only their lives but the lives of their victims were irreparably changed in both events.
So give us a time frame Watto. The time in which you put your name on the line for Lodge, then accept that your name is as good as the person you are defending if they fall through. Im all for you defending the guy, and his opportunity to make ammends… But if you are going to vouch for him, you are going to eat the dirt as far as your judgement is concerned from that day on. Considering he didnt have incarceration voiding his ability to work hence earn, obviously has to be taken into account retrospectively if you are in any way serious.
I’m not defending Lodge. I’m calling out the hypocrisy on here and the atrocious media reporting on the subject.
I see Lodge and Packer as the same scumbags. I have repeatedly said neither should of been allowed back into the game, but if one has, so should the other. Whats at debate is why Packer should be allowed back into the NRL and Lodge shouldnt. I couldnt give a rats about whether or not he pays his restitution. Its really a matter between Lodge and the yanks, but more so none of my business.
All I care about is the circumstances as to how he has been allowed back into the NRL. I see those circumstances are the same as to how Packer[and those before them] was allowed back into the game. If you supported Packer back into the game, I dont see how you can critisise Lodge being allowed back considering how alike there circumstances where.
GNR mentioned how people have changed their tune since Packer has pulled on a WT jumper. I went back and had a good chuckle and then noticed another thread ‘biggest scumbag in the game’. In that thread I called out Packer as the #1 Scumbag.
Upon reflection and since that thread was created, I have decided to move Russell to #2 and place Lodge at #1.
Both are Scumbags!
