Raiders Review with Blake and The Pork

Matt sailing perilously close to the sea of arseclown on the origin send off. The point of a send off is pretty much that the offence is so bad you should lose. All the alternate proposals don’t work as a disincentive. You think Queensland are happy to bring in their 18th man as a suitable replaceme...

Re: 2024 NRL Round 14: Teams and Game Day

Well it was disallowed based on Preston. But since Gutherson didn’t touch it, the winger being offside meant it could never be a try. Technically, the offside players aren’t supposed to advance or impact play until they’re put back on side. Yeah, I just thought it was a funny one because Gutherson ...

Settle petal. Bit rough on ol’ Tdubs there. That theory was provided as grounding for papabear’s assertion that the far left and right hated moderates more than each other.

I’m so confused. Are you saying that anti-vaxxers are far right? And science deniers (like woo-woo folks?) are far left? Then have more hatred towards moderates who follow science?

Not altogether the same thing I’d argue. That’s proposing there’s more similarities between far left and far right, not how they perceive others on the spectrum.

Xavier Savage wants to be a one club man

Timoko debuted at 20 and was playing like a stud at 22, basically the same ages as Savage. I’m still bitter about this one too, he got left out of a Finals series for Valemei in 2020 from memory. He was a better player and should have played finals. With a S82 caveat that he was physically and ment...

Re: Xavier Savage wants to be a one club man

I think there’s a sensible middle between our two positions here as well. I don’t think anyone believes Woolford is being kept out of first grade for his own good/development. Ricky’s personality and past behaviour also suggests he holds grudges and it appears hard (though not impossible) to move fr...

Re: Xavier Savage wants to be a one club man

Also fair enough. If we assume that he was brought through slowly due to after effects of the broken jaw and wanting to build up confidence I’ve got no problem with that, nor being patient while it happened.

I don’t accept that he wasn’t good enough and needed to go work on his game back in NSW cup.

Annesley hates people having a go at the refs when the decision is even vaguely defendable (and sometimes when it isn’t).
