Re: Ricky Stuart banned for seven days and fined $25,000 for press conference comments

Personally, I didn't really care one iota about what Ricky said. I'm more incredulous that everyone else seems to care so much, to the point the NRL felt compelled to step in. If I was in the player's shoes I'd probably either return serve, or take the high ground and publicly frame Ricky as an unpr...

So with ACT at over 99% for first doses, statistically the Raiders squad has over 20x more unvaccinated players than the community they represent.

Bravo. Muppets.

If they're going to be unavailable for a significant number of games, we should do to them what was done to Kyrie Irving.
