    Hey Surmbro, Mead just got KTFO, was on the ground right near the play and the game didn’t stop immediately.

    Just prepping you for your rant mate because we all know what an advocate you are for player welfare.

    christ almighty you're a petty little bitch, a player gets knocked unconscious and opposed to showing concern, your first thought is to jump on here to try to prove some sort of point, i see player welfare is super high up on your list too Rolling Eyes  

    i'll be more than happy to comment once i see vision of the incident, had higher priorities today than watching England beat up on PNG. Though i don't suppose whatever i say will mean anything to you, Mead is contracted to the Broncos after all, so it's not disproving any bias you claim i have.

    Is this going to be a thing now? every time a player gets knocked unconscious, i'm expected to explain myself to some-one who thinks needlessly endangering a unconscious player's life is 'part of the game'?

    well i can't find vision, if any-one can feel free to share, i'd be interested to see why Poorman'sRaffamatta was so convinced he had a 'gotcha' moment coming, so i'll just repeat myself from back when:

    if a player is unconscious, not moving, play should be stopped.

    There ya go, you got my consistency of opinion, whatever that was worth to you... So Should i try to figure out how to save that line as some sort of hot-key to paste in? or are you done caring more about being petty on a internet forum than the well-being of a human being?

    Huge result. First time a tier 2 nation has beaten a tier 1 in the last 7 days.

    The Tonga/England game is going to be the match of the tournament, yeah? So hype for it. Tonga/NZ was a cracker but given this is a semi, its next level.

    Ever felt so under underpaid at a job that you go “fuck that, I’ll drink my underpaid wages at the Xmas party in 1 night” I assume that’s Papallii’s thought process at the buffet while playing for a tier 2 nation.

    it was jsut so odd to see that samoa seemed to not give a shit, meanwhile lebanon, Fiji & Tonga have given everything


    NZ since they won that mid year teat at suncorp that got everyone hyped about them being # 1


    V's other Tier 1 nations: 2 wins 7 Losses
    V's Tier 2 nations: 2 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw



    Forget about #1 now NZ, you probably don't belong in the top 3

    Of course I thought, gee that looks nasty. Then I thought, player got KO and play didnt stop. Then I thought of you, babe.
    Well we literally spoke about it a few days ago, so it was fresh in my mind mate. Bronco player got KO making a tackle. Was waiting for you to advocate for him the way you did Oates.

    You are the one that put out the "this is the kind of person you are dealing with" post a while back. To me, that means you are passionate as fuck about the topic, and if someone disagrees with your opinion on it, apparently they are some form of monster. So I just want to make sure that you are advocating for play to stop every time someone is knocked out. Or every time someone cops a head knock that results in an apparent injury. As I said at the time, I want to to stop every time someone cops a head knock.

    Comments by Graham Lowe pretty much sum up how I feel about the pathetic, immature, dumb arse people involved in the Kiwis side.

    Kidwell's post interview - said the kiwis had a positive campaign and he has a good vision for the future. Attacked the fans for not being behind the team and not turning up and that he doesnt know if he will reapply for the job or not.

    Delusional.

    I heard he also said he wasn't sure the 'sacrifice' was worth it! Honestly. It should be a privilege to coach the Kiwis. And I would have thought he gets handsomely reimbursed for his 'sacrifice'. The guy just seems completely out of his depth and really out of touch... yup delusional!!

    Sometimes when you advertise a job you don't attract the right clientele, so you re-advertise with a line "previous applicants need not apply". I think Kidwell needs to read the whole job ad.

    Kidwells selection and bench rotation (didnt he admit to forgetting about using taumalolo or somthing ?? ) from his very first test showed he may not be up for it, its probably obvious now that he isn't but the team they had V's Fiji should have won with any member of this forum coaching them, that fiji result can't be just put on kidwell, its easy to just replace the coach and think everything will be ok but the playing squad itself has zero leadership (outside of mannering who still tries his guts out)

    He's done a terrible job of rebuilding the culture lost with the non-selection/non-appearance of their most experienced players. And his press conference further damages the culture with a complete lack of accountability.

    Thats why you should advocate for every head knock, not just ones that involve players you have pinned up on the back of your toilet door

    And fark thats hypocritical coming from a bloke who openly supports Adam Blairs late hits on playmakers.

    Amazing

    Absolutely.

    No doubt that the late Lolo defection hurt them but he has really done a terrible job and he, amongst a handful of players, should be punted immediatly.

    Not picking benji was a huge fuck up IMO. He is passionate, he was playing well and he is an experienced head.

    I get the whole 'minnows doing well is good for the game' thing, but fuck me, i'm sick of seeing Australians getting behind Fiji in this game, show some pride for your country ffs, I've never uttered the phrase 'geez the Knights are doing it tough and probably deserve a win, i hope they beat my team this week'
