Don't care who the halfback is, Jarrod Mullen will be NSW 5/8 this year though.

Our review identified changes needed to be made and, in Stephen, we have a coach who has a reputation for demanding the highest standards.

Maloney has been the best eligible 5/8 for 2 full seasons so deserves a crack with a competent halfback before he's dumped.

I don't trust the selectors, the Knights get ignored enough as it is.

I still can't quite believe Chris Houston came out of that ok and in fact went on to become captain.

On the flipside, I can't believe Tavita Latu was deregistered, whereas Greg Bird and Greg Inglis are poster boys.

Yeah, and it seemed pretty clear to me that Pearce was selected for Origin 2013 because of Maloney. Pearce is competent (at Premiership level :v:) but a better halfback would make Maloney more potent.

Apparently the authorities wouldn't let him speak to anybody until Monday, they wanted to talk to him first and then sack him. Also they have to help look after his wife and kids.

Due process and all that. It was always going to be a formality. Good on the Knights for looking after his family, I don't think they were under any obligation to do so.

Darius Boyd's not all bad. My sister's disabled and the broncos had some involvement with the day facility she goes to. Darius turned up there reasonably often and was really good with all the kids. Seems like a nice enough bloke outside of nightclubs and press conferences.

Also, the media likes the angle of all footy players are ratbag cunts who will glass their granny then snort their prescription meds while naked on a golf cart in the cbd at 9am.

To be fair, a lot of the players are only too happy to oblige with giving them material for the first kind of story...

It is poo poo, though. Much like in every facet of life, it's scandal that sells papers. That, and 5 page spreads on the Burgess clan.

The Bulldogs are coming to the park where I take the dog for a walk - I hope I meet some and become the subject of many puns!

The good news is your chance of being raped by the Dogs has reduced over the past decade. But not being assaulted. Or not - It's confusing in a quantum kind of way.

It's not during the act, it's the way you treat them after it. Most of them could have been avoided if they had put them in a cab and said thanks or that sort of thing, not just kicked her out and called her a dirty whatever. It's how you treat them afterwards that can cover a lot of that sort of stuff up."

I hope Dugan manages to avoid being suspended for at least half the season. That would be nice. Maybe Widdop won't suck either, that might be stretching it a bit though. :smith: Here's to another season of mediocrity!
