    An argument for the negative could be mounted based on the number of players who hit the headline for all the wrong reasons. Because if you include role model as part of the job description then they definitely fall short.

    The players are expendable, do the minimum to cover any legal requirements and the players are treated as less than assets like you and I. Because assets can return a tax break through depreciation.

    I will hark back to one of the biggest miscarriage of justices in my book:

    Young gun goes away on a trial game
    Shit goes down he wasn't involved in
    Kid has to attend interrogation
    Kid is cleared
    Club tells kid don't get yourself involved in this kind of behavior
    Kid gets selected for origin
    Kid bangs a hooker to celebrate
    Media report him coming out of a brothel
    Kid gets dropped from origin

    Who fucked up ? The kid, the club or the media ?
    Who was this?
    I can't see anything wrong with any of that except the media for reporting a non story, I've also said plenty of times that I think the NRL should licence journalists who report on the game.
    Saying that the Pearce thing is a different story though, he's been educated about what not to do and should have known better especially if the club was handing out cabcharge vouchers to get home after the cruise. If that's not a hint I don't know what is.

    Fuck man if they had reported on regular people could you imagine how society would look, I got slapped on Australia Day for calling a girl a cunt for saying that Steve Irwin was a prick that terrorised animals. Steve Irwin! On Australia Day! I could have thrown swings I was that mad haha

    If she was a vegan as well - you showed admirable restraint.

    She was upset with me for having a joint after she came and sat next to me who were smoking. She was quite hot but every word out of her mouth warranted a punch.

It's the parents job to raise these kids properly, I remember O'Neil pissed at the casino table, my parents told me he was in the wrong and not to do that. It's not like kids are going to sudden go around kissing lesbians and humping dogs.

    One of these is on my bucket list. Smile

    Yeah, odds on she was a Vegan as well.  Although normally that would have been the first thing she would have said.  They can't NOT tell you before anything else.

    I've got a blind date with a vegan crossfitter tonight. I wonder which one they will tell me about first?

    Who fucked up ? The kid, the club or the media ?

    Was this Big Willie? I thought it might have been but the term 'kid' is throwing me.

    I like to harp on about the media but in my opinion it is the club and the code that has let the player down in your example.....and in all the other incidents for that matter.

    The media (including hypocritical shitbags like Rothfield and R. Wilson) are indeed disappointing but in my view the players are the code and the clubs greatest asset, however far too often they are hung out to dry because the code buckles to even the faintest of public pressures.

    And don't give me this shit that they are concerned about sponsorship etc.
    Sponsors only care about return on their investment and will only turn away if the publicity becomes too negative - but the code bowing to public pressure and making a big deal, rather than hosing a lot of these incidents down as the minor indiscretions that they are, only creates or magnifies this negative publicity.
    Young blokes making mistakes, will not affect the popularity of the code and therefore the marketability one iota.
    That rubbish is just a cop out to justify buckling to the public pressure.

    All the education in the world won't prevent young blokes from being young blokes and quite frankly I hope it doesn't because these life lessons are essentially the most effective way, actually I would argue the only way to really learn and mature.

    On a side note, why is it that we just accept this inaccurate and incorrect tag of 'role model' which keeps getting attached to these blokes.
    We don't suspend pop stars when they go through the same process of learning to mature and as a parent (and an actual role model), these examples actually assist with letting your kids know what is acceptable.

    I actually know a Vegan who does Crossfit and is also an Anti-Vaxxer!

    For realsies.  Long story short, she was my PT when I got up around 120 kgs  Embarassed (95 now  Very Happy ).  Thought she was great to start, then slowly starting trying to change my rudimentary diet (not just cutting the shit food) by saying how disgusting eating meat was etc...didn't know what a Vegan was back then and didn't click at the time.

    Also used to chastise me for taking anti-inflammatories just to get to the gym, I was that sore when I first started.  It's like, you have a go at me when I don't turn up, then you have a go at me for taking some mild OTC medication to take the edge off the pain just to get to the gym so you can earn money at the expense of my pain and poor coping skills.  "Pharmaceutical companies are just in it for the money".  Correct, but so was she, because she would then direct me and every other client to the same Herbal supplier at least once a session  Rolling Eyes

    Did I say long story short...anyway, after I "broke up with her" she added me on FB and then I realised she was also an anti-vaxxer.  "I wasn't vaccinated and I am fine" on her wall.  She links every story where an allergic reaction to a vaccine disrupted the life of 1 in 10,000 people but ignores the figures on polio before it was preventable  Lol

    Each to their own and I respect peoples personal choices, unless they are Anti-Vaxxing Vegan Crossfitters.

    Anti-vaxers can all go and get fucked. They basically kill innocent children with their stupid choices.

    The only pro vaccination argument I can entertain in a debate is it prevents is from necessary evolution. Otherwise it's crazy.

    I've got a heap of vegan friends and majority of the time they're tolerable. A few of them have had health issues and had to go back to meat which was delightful. Shopping with one of them is a pain in the ass, I'm the type of guy to have a trolley packed inside 5 minutes. I know what I want and what I need. They stop and read every ingredient on the back, it's enough to drive a man insane.

    Sorry should have said pro anti-vaccination. It's very early over here still, you should know that.
