    The NRL agreed to guarantee the grand final will be played in Sydney for the next 25 years on the proviso a world class rectangular stadium was built at Olympic Park.
    see this here is a little bit cheeky (and no surprise that Ch9 has put out a pro NRL article).
    but im of the understanding that at present, the NSW Govt PAYS the NRL around $5m per year just to put the Grand Final in Sydney. So obviously a 25 year 'guarantee' would also be a guaranteed price for the next 25 years.

    Ch9 making out NRL doing the Sydney fans a favour by having it here.
    Most people consuming the game watch it on TV, who cares if its at a different stadium.

    Call their bluff. It would be epic.

    Yeh that's the spirit. 2 and 3 lane road slow it down 10km/h that will ease congestion. ffs people do 60 along there and up towards Wallsend is the worst.

    In addition to this how everyone feels entitled to know what happened between two grown males behind closed doors that they would have otherwise had no idea about what unfolded if it wasn't for footage from a security camera.

    I dunno, I think there are some. Like if his wife was dead.

    But I don't think they were crossed here.

    Also agree with Wilso, and people ignoring the fact that similar situations would have played out many times in the past. Its only a problem when certain people deem it to be one, and then everyone else agrees it is also a problem.

    This is how it cam get out of hand..

    Occasionally, sledging doesn’t go down too well.

    McGrath to Ramnaresh Sarwan: “So what does Brian Lara’s di*k taste like?

    ”Sarwan: “I don’t know. Ask your wife.

    McGrath : “If you ever F**king mention my wife again, I’ll F**king rip your F**ing throat out.”

    Unfortunately for Sarwan’s quick wit, McGrath’s wife was very sick at the time with the cancer that would later take her life.
    From www.cricketsledges.com

    Now if Sarwan didn't know about her illness its a pretty good response to something McGrath started.

    But...

    I see the biggest problem with that is where the media mention Jane McGrath's illness. It's totally out of context and I believe has nothing to do Sarwan's response. He would have said it if it were any other Aus bowler in my opinion.

    So you’re cool with homophobic insults but not ones about wives?

    Ok.

    But you just made my point for me. McGrath, like Warner started it, and have no authority to state where the boundaries are.

    With sledging don't start anything you can't finish, especially if you are easily triggered.

    Warner was shown on the boundary yelling at De Cock and calling him a f $#@ing sook...twice. What does he expect?

    I cant stand the bloke and cant be arsed watching him bat with his antics. Khunt of the highest standing.

    Just watching the Carragher thing....not defending his actions but like Warner was goaded beforehand, this time by a twit with a camera looking for a nibble. Would like to see him getting done for using a mobile phone whilst driving....

    It's like the Current Affair thing of chasing "wrongdoers" down the street. Whenever someone bites they are told "you'll be up for assault" or "you'll have to pay for that camera". Under extreme pressure you have to expect a brainsnap. One of these idiots will pull a gun eventually.

    Leave well alone - if you are prepared to goad someone don't be a wuss and run to mummy when they hit back.

    I did say I wasn't defending the action itself, which was terrible...I just find it curious that people looking for a bite whinge if it actually does happen.
