    I'm astounded at this. Not even in the sports section.

    The USA lawsuits in the NFL is because the NFL witheld research it had conducted and didn't act on it.

    Sounds like good defense to me!


    Edit: Hey! If anyone gets those "you've read x out of 10 free articles this month" on the website.

    Don't be scared into subscribing - nothing happens when you go past 10.

    If you already knew this, well you're all as clever as a wombat in a lipstick shop.

    What a load of drivel! If you did anything you do in rugby league 'in different context' as he puts it, you'd end up in court.. Imagine you tackled a bloke as you walked into a restuarant or ankle tapped someone as they started to walk across the road.. no wonder this bloke doesn't have his article in the Sports section.

    This guy is either a souffs supporters, pu**y or both! No mention whatsoever on the grapple tackle Sam Burgess put on Matai, Sam running in as third man backing off like cat then punching on with a Manly half nor George Burgess elbowing King in the head while he's on the ground. One sided hypocritical bullsh*t. Go watch netball you wan*er!

    I expect better from the SMH.
    His twitter account should get hammered.

    The guy isn't a sports reporter he's one of SMH's right wing political opinionists. Take what he says with a grain of salt. He and his kind always relish in finding the bad with the good.

    Unbalanced reporting?
    This is why this turkey ISN'T in the Sports' section.

    Of course, one of the biggest, best players in the opposition is going to be singled out. That's just defensive football.

    Paul Sheehan (born 1951) is an Australian columnist and senior writer for the Sydney Morning Herald, where he has been day editor, chief of staff and Washington correspondent. He generally writes from a conservative viewpoint in the opinion of observers.[1]

    He is a graduate of the Australian National University in Canberra, and the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University in New York, and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly and Foreign Policy.

    Sheehan's first book, Among the Barbarians, was published in 1998. The book, written by Sheehan to "lift the veil of intimidation" hanging over critical discussion of multiculturalism and Australia's immigration policies, spent five months on Australian best-seller lists.[2] In 2003, he released his second book, The Electronic Whorehouse, a critical examination of the media in Australia. His third book, Girls Like You (2005), commented on the Ashfield gang rapes, a series of gang rape trials in Australia involving four Pakistani brothers.

    Sheehan's columns in the Sydney Morning Herald are generally written from a right-wing perspective and are noted for their criticism of the "human rights industry", Australia's Muslim community, and the Australian Labor Party. Other topics covered by Sheehan include criticism of the Australian legal system's handling of sexual assault cases as well as criticism of the neo-conservative ideology.

    Paul Sheehan, who suffers from chronic pain, has written a controversial article promoting magnesium-rich "Unique Water".[3] He did not seek validation from scientific experts: any apparent pain relief is possibly only a placebo effect.

    He obviously knows sweet f..k all about rugby league, amongst other things. He should get off the " Unique Water".
    It's not as if there are'nt enough Manly hating pseudo sports journalists writing about league already.
    What did the SMH think could be achieved by printing the rantings of this reactionary right-wing Colonel Blimp?
    Perhaps they should rename their rag The Sydney Moron Herald.

    If he listens really hard he will be able to hear a lot more people laughing..... at his article.

    Genuinely stupid opinion piece written by someone within very little knowledge of the subject.

    ha ha, we hate the tele and now we hate the herald, I thought the herald was great as I read on here. You are until you say something bad. So many people have questioned me about how we played last week at school. It's been very negative and drop kicks was a nicer name. That timeline isn't far off but who cares. Watch out Manly Daily.

    If you didn't know, it's sounds like he's describing a game of Rugby League.

    I reckon this bloke would be an AFL supporter. How many RL fans use the word melee.

    Someone should send him a photo of poor defenceless GI almost killing Dean Young. Just to keep a sense of perspective about the game.
