It was a mistake from a drunk kid, who lost his brother and like we all have in our time been hassled by police. No one was actually hurt, so excuse me if I skip the pearl clutching.
Has he shown a pattern of this particular behavior? NO!

Oh no he was in a car unlicensed in a paddock. THE HORROR!!!

I've lost a brother from brain cancer but I didn't feel the need to abuse anyone because of it. I think thats a pretty lame excuse for bad behaviour tbh. And he wasn't in a paddock when he lost his license, or in a paddock when he decided to drive while suspended instead of getting one of his team mates to take him to training or get in a taxi. He was on the road.

Meh, sorry but giving cops a bit of verbal abuse is really low on the give a **** scale. They give as good as they take, and "female" cop, double meh. She's a cop, he showed the ultimate respect by verbally abusing her equally to the male cops.

This whole thing though really isn't about what people's standards are concerning what Haas or anyone has done. Everyone is going to have differing opinions on how serious they think an incident is or isn't. I clearly think he has been out of line a lot worse than you for example and that's fine.I was originally saying that if we are serious about raising standards, we can't keep serial offenders around even if they are quality players. We have to draw the line somewhere about what's acceptable for a Broncos player to be doing in public. It would be nice if just for one year we didn't have idiots breaking covid rules, or abusing cops, or making homophobic slurs to fans who just want a picture.

I agree mate but they're a young squad so we're going to have problems.

Even Melbourne have problems every other year. Curtis Scott, Solo Moaner punching the shit out of people, Proctor and Brom getting on the white horse.

When you have a bunch of elite fit, star young men all together there's always going to be teething problems you just have to nurture them and hope they develop into good men.

I wait to see how players perform before forming an opinion.

It seems strange to see a Townsville born and raised nrl player not wanted by the Townsville team. I mean, it doesn't sound like it was a bidding war. That being the case it may be that he wants a change although I cannot help wondering why he'd want to leave. Intriguing signing and you can bet I will watch him closely as I do all our forwards.
I know that while he had always been fairly solid on the field, he got held back because he just wasn't proffesional enough off it and by the time it clicked with him I think the Cowboys had just had enough.

Yeah other wise you get stuck with a bunch of nerds like Carrigan and Bullemor and don’t win anything unless golden point changes to a sudoku contest.

I'm hopeful he's had a big wake up call. Knowing our luck in recent years we will have no choice but to sack him and he will turn himself around at the Storm on a small contract.
Payne Haas as a person can get fucked. As a footy player he can play footy. He was the final straw I had with liking footy players or caring about the kind of person they are. When next years articles about Payne doing Ramadan come out and they expect you to believe he's an angel like they have in previous years, don't believe it because it's not true. He has to earn being called anything other than a shit human by proving that he is something else.

Anyone understating physically threatening a female police officer can get fucked too.

As much as I love beating the cows, as a Queenslander to the core, I would be far happier if all 3 Queensland were up at the top end. Having all three clubs suffering is not a good thing as far as our Qld squad is concerned.

Having a better preforming team means they can take more risks on juniors coming through and they join a winning culture. None of them are really getting that in the current environment.
**** the other teams. They don't want us to be successful and with every team having their hand in the QLD pie we don't need to rely on the other two (one of them being a fake QLD team anyway) to create players for Origin. Also **** Origin until the Broncos are good again.

Meet the right female cop and it’s actually quite easy to verbally abuse them.
Pretty easy to go almost an entire lifetime without having to deal with cops if you can just avoid being a dick head in the first place. Would love to see some of you spend a few hours dealing with the stuff cops deal with. One moment they're finding a dead body in a house, the next they're knocking on someone's door to let them know someones died, the next they're dealing with some dick head yelling at his girlfriend in the street and have to be nice enough about it to not be physically threatened by someone twice their size.

You have our attention. Please continue.
Haha happened almost 20 year ago. I was passenger in a car that was pulled over by her because “ I was being an idiot and looking at her” which is true, I was looking at her because she was death staring me.. Her male partner took my mate aside for a few generic copper questions while she stood there trying to force me to call myself an idiot. I was laughing at her and telling her that she’s the idiot so she told me that because I was rude to her my mate would now be getting a fine for having an unrestrained passenger who was “yahooing” at them.(me). I pointed out to her that I had my seatbelt buckled and the window was up and this would have been captured on her car’s dash cam with no yahooing( this all happened while we crossed an intersection and she was waiting at the red light on our left) and she just went silent and stared at me, seething and unable to think of anything to say. Her male counterpart who had been over-listening to our conversation then abruptly stopped talking to my mate and came over to us, where he calmed the situation and discussed Like an adult what happened and then told me that nobody here today is an idiot, but we can all be a little bit silly sometimes, even the police. We were then allowed to leave with no fuss.

Maybe I was raised differently but nothing comes before QLD loyalty..... but at the end of the day even if you disagree with that, it's still the NSWRL with a new logo. The "outer" clubs used to stick together a bit and I think that going away to a degree has gotten us where we are.

In the past, there used to be a lot less sniping and poaching between the QLD teams and it's been a big part of our downfall I believe to let it degrade to such a point. We've forgotten who the common enemy is and we have outlandish plays to secure QLD Talent like Fifi's massive offer just putting an exclimation point on that.

I think the old ways were alive and well as recently as a 5-6 years ago with player deals that looked like favours - even as recently as Ash Taylors first contract with the tits. Bennett didn't think he'd get a run so he picked up the phone with the mob down the road and deals were arranged.

We used to be like that and it benefited many. Those days are gone and I really long for them back. Just like our association with the walker bros, jets, many things are just not "right" from the last 5 or so years. Those bridges can be mended and should be for the good of QLD League.

I can vouch for the one kid with the Euro name. He'll be our next hooker.

But then again I said Reece Walsh would be our fullback for many years to come, so what would I know?
