I think that CEO might have some slight narcissistic tendencies.

They seem to refer to him in the media as having an "abrasive personality"

God that's great
I can't imagine the smug, **** eatin grin I'd have on my face if I was returning to work after an injunction granted from the courts

First order of business would be to summon everyone to the board room for a pep talk, surely?
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Love how rugby refs call out player numbers target than names. Much more professional.

Hope he gets a good payout as he isn't very attractive to future employers. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

I wouldn't be surprised if he came out tomorrow and called Brumby Jack a total ****

There's something wrong with him. Surely at some point you'd realise your not only causing the club major issues but your own future employment!

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.

After watching the Rugby World 7s, you'd have to say that Hayne is about as much chance of representing Fiji in Modern Pentathlon as he is rugby.

What a farce.

I've just been following the Rugby 7's tournament with Fox's thorough coverage. So apparently England have scored a try, the honey badger had a yarn with someone, and some bloke called Hayne played

Interesting, his knees are cooked so that's a good effort.

He has looking at a comeback a few years ago when they ran out of halves

Oh, imagine my **** surprise.

I consider myself pretty patriotic and I cheer on just about any and all Australian teams except this one. I don't watch it and I don't care for it. I've even found myself today somewhat smug about us having being beaten by England.

Then I pop in here and I'm reminded why I hate this sport so god damn much!
