Eight times he's gone to the video ref, there have been nine tries scored in the game.

The video ref has given maybe three of them.

But yeah, i also question the feasibility of a second Queensland team.
What I have never understood is why Australian sport seems to not even contemplate having multiple national divisions like the English soccer or the NPC rugby pre-butcherjob. Not the half-arsed lower level competitions they have now. Both the AFL and NRL would, I think, quite clearly benefit from it. Many of the propositions for new teams that are marginal cases would thrive if they entered a second division, and in time could build up enough skill and a financial base to make it in the top flight.

Certainly I see what you mean with its Englishness. But that can be said about just about everything in all of Canterbury.

Then go to Dunedin and you might as well be in Scotland.
Especially the grey sideways rain.

I'd be throwing things at the telly by now.

And I think it's about time I made dinner. Pizza for the win.

I'm so not down with promotion/relegation in the NRL. For example, in 2005 Newcastle finished last and were in the running to win the comp in 2006.

The lack of stability just fucks everything when it isn't an established set up

I would but i think enough televisions have been destroyed by annoyed Dragons fans tonight.

30-18, that chip and chase disaster on halftime really must hurt now.

I hate how cliche SBS's sport reports have become with their lame puns. "Something-or-other allowed the Sea Eagles to swoop."

See, I don't see it as a negative. You play like shit, you deserve to go down. The system seems to work very well in England. Give it time to establish here and I think it'd be brilliant.

Though I do think it's more of an imperative for the AFL than the NRL. It would give some of the dying Victorian clubs another chance at life, and reduce the disparity between states by allowing more interstate teams in.

10 minutes until the Warriors start.

Ugh, but at least the Warriors and Cowboys have two of the more unusual jerseys this week

Oh yeah, I see it everywhere else, but I tend to expect SBS to be a bit of a higher class of journalism. They've seemed to be slipping in the last year or so though.

I think the AFL could support it, but league supporters are quite fickle. The team goes down the fans will be on to another team in no time. Plus league doesn't have the money to help the bigger clubs that go down, some clubs are struggling to stay afloat now.

And again i point the example of 2005 Newcastle out, they were the best wooden-spooners ever. Would it have been fair to relegate a club that, even today, is financially fucked but not too bad on field?

SBS is now showing some piece on how there's controversy in France about how the French entry to the next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is mostly sung in English and some people - including parliamentarians - think it's an insult to the French culture and language!

They've got their priorities in order, huh!

That's like a congressional hearing into steroids in baseball, except...less ridiculous.

My lovely horse running through the
field
Where are you going
With your fetlocks flowing in the
wind

I want to shower you with sugar lumps
And ride you over
fences
I want to polish your hooves every single day
And bring you to the horse
dentist

My lovely horse you're a pony no
More
Running around with a man on your back
Like a train in the night
Like a train in the....hold on, i can do this...

Niiiiiiiiiiiight.


That's so going in my DI playlist.
