Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Ricky Stuart had a Rugby Union pathway to the Raiders - just sayin'. Cooper Cronk had a Union background in his early development years. There are plenty of quality players who have made and who could make, the switch. The trick is to get them in their late teens or early 20s and take the time to develop them.

Heartbroken Wallabies flyhalf Reece Hodge felt "like I've let my whole country down" after missing a kick which could have won his side a Test match: https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/ ... /?cs=14280

Don’t worry. No one knew it was on. And now, no one cares.

Sounds like there are more goals in soccer than there are tries in yawnion... although If penalty goals are what you wish to watch then boy you’re in luck!!

They do have a 'set piece' though and everybody loves a 'set piece'. I flicked over to a Wallabies / kiwis game a few weeks ago and yes, right on time for a 'set piece'. Wallabies won a free kick from some sort of scrum infringement... so they decide instead of tapping and going, twenty metres out from the kiwi tryline, they opt for a **** scrum? They then got penalised for some sort of scrum infringement.

So I flicked over to an excellent episode of 'murder she wrote'.

I got my 15 minutes of rugby for the year, watching the Brumbies getting robbed at the death.

What a stupid sport.
