I agree the slights against Hodgo's good nature have been a bit cheap, but I don't know how you could think calling Gallen a drug cheat is going too far. If anything it's not going too far enough.

If they wanted to present a fair and balanced perspective on the man picked to lead NSW they should have referred to him as a stitch-ripping squirrel-gripping coward-punching floor-****ing cheap-shotting diving whinging self-admitted drug cheat who is the losingest State of Origin captain of all time. Dead set, this NSW team is a dirty pair of undies under the bed of the NRL, and Captain Peptides is nothing more than a dirty wet skidmark right up the middle.
Gallen is such a cheat, he played the entire Origin campaign last year while suspended! Could be the biggest cheat in sporting history. Fifa could have blamed him for their scandals and we would have accepted that.
Seriously? our fanbase, I mean seriously?

I wouldn't go throwing the word classy around with the comments you have just made. I'm sure NSW are stoked to have a homophobic little prick like yourself as part of their fanbase.
Haha if that was meant to upset it's an epic fail.

Here's my problem with it.

If it was somebody involved in the match, I could understand it as far as building heat but the media have no influence of the game so who is really getting over here? If anything they're damaging the reputation of the game by saying things like 'This is the worst team ever' or 'this guy is a drug cheat' because it paints the game in a negative light.

Origin will draw in spite of itself but if the NRL knew what's best, they'd reign them in because these articles are doing far more bad than good.

And that's because they're terrible at their jobs and get stonewalled for asking dumb questions about DCE which were always going to get treated one way. Their inability to draw a compelling reaction from their interviewees is telling and right now we've got one of the most boring Origin builds in one time where the media is trying to get themselves over.
Fair enough and I can understand where you're coming from on this, but I can't agree fully. It's not great to be calling any side the worst in history and crapping on about grubbiness doesn't really help anyone or do anything to sell the game.

But while calling a convicted, self-confessed drug cheat a drug cheat may not be helpful I can't criticise it at all. Ultimately the blame for that falls on the drug cheat in question and I don't think it's fair to blame any media for using something which is an established fact.

It wasn't meant to upset you at all, it was meant to call you out for the homophobic human being you are. I would have to believe you have a conscious if I thought it would upset you.

Christ, Paul Kent is a dribbler.

He's on NRL 360 complaining about the Blues not winning enough penalty counts at Suncorp. Whatever dude. No mention about how the Maroons do in Sydney regarding penalties. Gotta love that balanced approach in the media.

How does this one-sided nonsense get aired?

Have they gone too far this series?

Sure, there's always been a bit of banter but the back-page for the past few games has just been petty back and forths from both states.

NSW calling Cam Smith a phony, Queensland calling NSW the worst side of all-time, NSW calling the Queenslander's grubs and now Queensland calling Gal a drug cheat.

While it adds to the theatre, none of these journos have to run out to the field on Wednesday and seem to be getting awfully personal.

Are they going too far?
Mal's rats and filth comments are ringing true once again.

have they gone to far?.....fucken oath they have.

What we saw on 60 minutes last night has to be one of the grubbiest acts ever performed by a sporting association.

NSW born and raised, Channel 9's David Gyngell .....and the NSWRL, set about attacking the QLD captain on national TV, just days out from 2015's origin decider. The cowardly manipulation of such tragic circumstances is a disgusting new low even for NSW.

A young NSW junior who's been tragically injured play the game we all love, thinks Cam Smith is a ****. Him and his entire family hates Smith and they let the whole of Australia know about it.

How is Cameron Smith supposed to feel about that....how is any body supposed to feel about being shamed, maligned....embarrassed in front of millions of viewers in Australia prime time tv slot ??

I tell ya....Les Boyd had nothing on David Gyngell. Les Boyd was an angel compared to that ****.

Not only a lot of QLD'rs lost respect, but a lot of RL fans lost respect for Alex McKinnon Sunday night.

I predict Smith getting a King Wally like cheer when he runs onto the ground on tomorrow. They'll be letting him know that RL fans are all supporting him


and the QLD'rs will be screaming at him to smash those filthy NSW grubs back into the dirt.

Yep, the 60-seconds-is-all-you-get bullshit has got QLD into the siege mentality, I'm sure of it. I hope they DO boycott the run tomorrow. Crank it up even more.

QLD by 12+

Useless cunts in the media. Sickening.

There's a lot of talk being slung around about boycotts and I'm all for it tbh. Smith should have been given right of reply. They could have got a comment from him and not have it detract from the main story.

It is awesome to see the rest of the QLD team circling the wagons and supporting their skipper. It was a hatchet job - plain and simple. What's the point of giving them more ammo? They'll just take it out of context and make it a beat-up anyway.


Screw nine. Stay strong, QLD!

Go nuts mate, spread the message far and wide. Let the word ring out to the four corners of the earth: Gal's not just a drug cheat, he's also a fucking awful human being and spectacularly unsuccessful to boot.
