Nobody is asking to replace them. Instill a professional work ethic in them and ban them from pokies, soft drinks, Mcdonalds and all the other negative shit that affect their ability to become better rugby league players. Why bother coaching them to be their best if they're just going to go home and **** around. They've got ten years at their peak at the most, waste your money and life away when you're not earning millions and pissing on the fans with poor efforts every week. It's that simple. If you're not aspiring to be the best don't expect to play for the best clubs. You and anyone else making excuses for them is 100% supporting mediocrity.So we f*** them off and replace them with who exactly? You don't think the next crop of guys we bring in will behave exactly the same way?
It's the NRL FFS, half the clubs are literally funded by a Leagues club. It's part of the DNA for the game in Sydney. It's gross and I don't personally support it, but you can't exactly be shocked that football players love poker machines.
