      Murderer you say? Has he been breeding footballers on a property out west and disposing of the ones that aren’t up to scratch?

            The original title was better.
            But no.
            Let's not let us judge between humour and reality for ourselves.

            It’s not a case of political correctness gone mad or whatever poorly considered theory you’re implying. It’s common sense and means the site owner won’t get into any trouble.

            Otherwise we might not have this website at all.

              Cmon though - anyone could see I didn’t think Arthur was actually trying to intentionally kill his players. Or did I..? No. Then again, can anyone be really sure..? Maybe. But... :wait:

                  Nope.
                  No poorly considered anything.
                  Just that at no point did I consider any serious implication that queen Arthur was a murderer.
                  A murderer of football careers got my only consideration.
                  As I would have thought would anyone...

                    Doesn't-matta are the worst club in the NRL for having a player go off for a HIA even if the player in question has injured an arm or a leg and never got close to having a head knock.

                    I think it was about 2 or 3 years ago I remember seeing one of their games on Ch.9 and Tim Mannah went down holding his knee or ankle. Yet the trainer patted his head and called it a HIA and when Mannah went off, he was limping but showing no signs that he'd been hit in the head. It was so laughable that it actually wasn't funny. It got to the point at one stage where they were doing it just about every game.

                        Arthur has made a mockery of a serious situation.
                        Something brought in to protect players from further damage from concussion has been made a joke of by this twerp.
                        The league should have long ago made on example of him.

                            There was actually stats on this that showed Parra (over a few years and even the year they made the finals) used more HIAs than any other team.

                            BA got questioned by the media on it and shrugged it off. Cheats.

                            If that broken nose had happened to any of the forwards they would have enjoyed 10mins on the sidelines for a free interchange... But because they were forced to put Gower out in the centres they needled Fergo at half time and sent him straight back out there.

                                  Good to see Ferguson has been named. Someone clearly suffering a rib injury and a horribly busted honk getting needled up to play. If BA doesn’t finish you off the first time he’ll sure as **** try again the next week. This has Foran written all over it.
