I guess that’s why it’s called “The Off Season”.
Bad run of it this year, why so many alleged sexual or domestic assaults? Not even just nuffies either - Walker, Hayne, De Bellend, Musgrove.
tall poppy syndrome?
Yeah poor buggers, should be able to assault whomever they want in peace…
Happens every year, we just don’t hear about a lot of it.
I’ve heard stories about Sonny Bill back in the day (not the incidents in the news) to nightingale etc clubs keep it hush hush
how about the NRL look at stopping the clock when the ball is out of play for once? The greatest anomaly in the NRL is why the clock doesn’t stop when the ball is out of play with no added time at the end of a match. NRL where the game is played for about 73 minutes.
One of the great cities of the world. Seriously love the place. When you live there you forget about how great it is. But it maybe the best city in the world.
Also the place of my favourite dad joke…take the kids to south Sydney and say this is where they invented the toothbrush…anywhere else it would be the teethbrush.
i’ve lived in hanoi ,nauru, geneva (work) to tokyo and asia but sydney has to be right up the top of lifestyle in general. it’s all subjective really…
calling it a cesspool etc is short sighted. It’s a dynamic multicultural city with the best food; coffee and culture in the world. Go to Petersham and eat Frangos; go to granville and eat El Jannah; go to Cabramatta and eat Pho; go to Surry hills to eat Lebanese and Persian cuisine or Glebe for a German beer cafe?. Sounds alright to me…
Was at the German beer cafe last night!
really? how was it?
Hayne is the superior of the two.
Simple as that.
Val gets donkey of the day.
Hes top 5 wingers in the NRL and top 10 fullbacks…
In the NFL he won’t be first string anything.
I heard a wrestler once say, a real wrestler not the WWE nonsense… That he could take 5 years off and not train whilst a person with no wrestling experience can train for that 5 years and get all the coaching possible… The five year off guy would still win because its second nature to them and they’re conditioned since young to do it. It’s a massive American culture and they take it serious because it can take them to the olympics and college… Jus like AMERICAN FOOTBALL.
As far as I know Val didn’t spend his whole life since he could walk tossing the pig skin in a grid iron sense. He’s up against an entire country of potential stars who play from young ages. Every school has a team. High school state championships, national championships, college!
America is huge also.
He’s a big fish in a small pond over here but yeah… Good luck Val. Gronk.
So you’re slating the guy for taking a risk on a total unknown because it is something he wants to do, despite forgoing all the money he stands to make here?
If everyone thought that way the human race would go nowhere.
Wah Wah Wah.
Allz I’m saying is….
The kid is very unlikely to make it.
Dream big kiddies.
He’s probably not. As you say it’s a game you have to be pretty much playing from birth. Calling the bloke a gronk for having a lash is a bit unfair though.
or was he talking about Gronkowski? Just watching today’s game with Kareem Hunt (almost made the olympics for sprinting) and Gurley in action, it’s almost comical to think Val has a shot…but yeh, nah he ain’t gonna make it. doesn’t mean he can’t try
