[moved] Don't Judge Hoppa on past mistakes. Sure John Hopoate has made mistakes in the past, who hasn't? But in all seriousness, if any other player had done the same thing they would have been put on report, given a couple of weeks and that would be the end of it. Because it is Hoppa, and i"ll quote Canteen Worker, "the media's favourite punching bag" the whole incident will be blown out of any rational point of view and Hoppa will be given a ridiculous sentance. You might see every "expert" in the country calling for his head, and this is just what the media has been waiting for, "rugby leage's bad boy finally does it", with out looking at it rationally, the media will get the hype going to try to end his career. Perfect example, Manly V Warriors, yes Hoppa called the ballboy a little ****, but if you were calling for the ball and the touch judge was telling the ballboy to throw the ball in and he didn't, he just placed the ball on line sideline what would you think? what would you say? and finally what does the media do, blows a minor situation out of control, come on, how's about you get an objective point of view and get off the "Hoppa hater's" band wagon!
