    Hi guys.

    I have felt a need to offer a 'disclaimer' sometimes when I type in my comments because while I will have a go at the NRL and others it is totally 'tongue in cheek' and no offence is intended.

    I wonder what your thoughts are and if there should be an inserted disclaimer a the end of each comment.

    I have used the following sometimes:

    Disclaimer - it should be understood that my comments are to be taken in jest and that I know the NRL and the associated clubs are professional trustworthy and of the highest calibre.

    Any comments I make are not to be taken seriously and no offence is intended.


    I wonder if a more 'legal minded person' than I could draft a general disclaimer we could put at the bottom of each of our posts? Just ot be on the safe-side.

    While I fully believe everything I type, I concede occasionally my comments may be incorrect.

    DISCLAIMER: My participation in this Forum is at all times light hearted and satirical and is not in any way intended to impugn the integrity of any individual or organisation. None of my comments should be construed otherwise and if any unintended offence is caused I withdraw the offending post and publicly apologise unreservedly.Shy
    Ralphie that's pretty good. I like it.

    It's just in our litigious society I think it is needed.

    If I have slandered you or caused you offence in my post, it's because you suck.

    The characters referred to in this post are fictitious, and any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Although I have to admit, it's a hell of a coincidence :D
