    By the way, in trying to be objective on the whole Serena thing thats been going on, I took the time to watch the whole press conference post match.

    If you set aside the on court tantrum I think she actually makes a lot of sense with what she is talking about. The media thing is an aside, that's a beat up to sell more papers, get more clicks, all that shit, but what Serena is actually saying is pretty fair enough I think.

    The message gets lost when you behave like an idiot. Kaepernick is a prime example.

    She only brought up "well the men do it" argument to muddy the waters if you like, to sidestep the real issue & because she didn't want to own the fact that she broke the laws of the game so got penalised under the laws of the game. Serena thinks she's bigger than the game & thinks she can do whatever she likes. I was watching the news & apparently the umpires have come out & said they will not officiate any game she is involved in. Good on them because she needs a stern reality check. And this is not the first time she's carried on like that.

    And that cartoon re Serena is hilarious. Of course the liberal left has bombarded him with their usual labels of racism, sexism, etc.

    That would be excellent. You can't really drop Lawrence or Che Kam from the 2fr because both played very well throughout the season. ET is a defensive tackling machine but that's all he offers because he doesn't rack up run metres & he's not really a ball playing lock so the Tigers lose a little bit on attack. Eisenhuth has played a few games at lock but he's better suited in the frf rotation. I think a Lawrence, MCK, Matterson back row would be great.

    Manly's Tom Wright has signed for the Brumbies. He has gone to the dark side. Cue a Chewie gif.

    So I'm bored so I found 2 other Serena Williams meltdowns at the US Open apart from this current meltdown:
    (1) 2009 semi final v Kim Glijsters:
    Clijsters won the 1st set with Williams receiving a warning for smashing her racquet. In the 2nd set she was called for a foot fault, giving Clijsters double match point. Serena then directed a venomous rant at the offending lineswoman including a threat to "shove this ball down your throat"

    So in this instance Serena has threatened to kill because if you shove a tennis ball down someone's throat they will suffocate & die.

    (2) 2011 semi final v Sam Stosur:
    The chair umpire warned Williams for hindering her opponent for shouting "come on" before the Australian had reached the ball. Any angry Williams attacked the umpire verbally during the changeover. "If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way. You are out of control , you are a hater & you're just unattractive inside. What a loser, you give a code violation because I expressed who I am. We're in America the last time I checked."

    So in this instance Serena is guilty of sexism, racism & misogyny.

    So in summary in the above 2 instances she has threatened to kill, was sexist, racist & misogynistic. It seems all the things she mentioned in her press conference in the latest incident she is guilty of herself so Serena should change her own attitude towards women first. Also these are just from 1 tournament so god knows how she's carried on at all the other tornaments she competes in.

    If someone does something 3 times in a decade - do they do that thing a lot, or a little?

    Depends on the thing. Full on abusing an official I would say a lot, eating Mexican food I'd say a little.

    Whether or not her points are valid I think Serena is still a petulant child. If Fifita threatened to ram a ball down a touchies throat imagine the outrage.

    Won 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014
    Spat the dummy 2009, 2011, 2018

    So if she doesn't win she spits the dummy 3/6 or 50% of the time. I consider that more than a lot and totally unacceptable.

    To put it into NRL context in the last decade Melbourne have cheated to win the grand final 50% of the time

    Tyronne Peachey has instructed his manager to get him out of the Titans deal. Mind you this is not earth shattering news as we all expected this to happen with all the rumours in the past month.

    With the Raiders losing both S. Boyd (to Titans) & J. Paulo (to Eels) I was quite keen on Guler but I assume the 2 Raiders purchases John Bateman & Ryan Sutton both from Wigan are props so that keeps Guler on the bench.
