    We talk a lot of shit in these threads. We always have. This is something that a lot of people feel strongly about given the last few pages of posts and there's nothing wrong (in my opinion) in letting it play itself out organically.

    Personally agree. The thread goes anywhere at any time, but generally if it is off topic it is either something very superficial or something very serious.

    95% of the talk in here is on topic, if 5% is off topic then so be it. It's a community.

    I'm one of the ones that don't really go anywhere else on this forum, and to be honest, I don't know why. I will definitely have to fix that.

    No late mail at all mentions Surgess being in doubt.  If Surgess isn't named in the final teamlists, Souths are the kings of keeping player mail a secret, especially after the Surgess secret in rd 15.

    I apologize if my original post has led to this thread becoming off topic. My original post was to raise awareness and to remind anyone who reads this forum that there is light at the end of the tunnel and that if you are feeling depressed or having negative thoughts that there is help.

    I have personally been in that situation and I feel very strongly about the need to raise awareness and for those who need help or who are struggling to seek help. While this thread may have gone off topic of NRL Fantasy if it means a single person reading this forum who is feeling depressed seeks help or asks someone to talk about it then it is worth it.

    Just my 2 cents...



    Anyway back onto NRL Fantasy.

    Who should I trade in? Fifita or Taumalolo?

    I thought your post was brilliant and as the other guys said, anything off topic that happens here is legit and worhtwhile. We are human so a couple of pages in regards to this very important topic IMO is more than welcome. It's a serious issue and we are seeing it more and more and we need to get awareness out as much as possible and where ever we can.

So boo fuckin hoo you have alcohol & drug problems. Stop thinking about yourself & your pain you ass hole & just think the pain & misery you're are going to leave for your family & friends who will have to deal with your death for the rest of their lives.

    I genuinely want to take this opportunity to really give a push to trying ur hamburgers and/or Bacon n' egg rolls without any sauce on them ! There it is, i said it. I'm dead serious. Even if it sounds stupid, make urself do it.

    Im all for the open ended forum regardless of thread, and if for some reason any single one of you randomly needed an ear to listen or to get something out, I'd welcome contact from anyone. Peoples circumstance, inner thoughts, perceived perception can twist a person's headspace no end.

    I wouldnt worry about it. If you dont know anything about it, and or have not experienced it, or know someone who deals with it, then how are you supposed to know...

    Just realize, that most people who finish themselves are not thinking optimally. (it is a rational solution in their heads though) Its a very dark all consuming endless nothingness.
