Say what you want about Sam Burgess and Sonny Bill Will, they're fantastic footballers and there's not a team who wouldn't want them or players like them. My question though and ive been racking my brain of late is why are channel 9 and somewhat the NRL promoting so heavily these two fellas when they won't be in the competition next year. Sonny bill was lauded in the footy show last week, there was an article on nrl.com a week or so ago about sonny chasing the rugby World Cup dream. Sam is just untouchable as far as anyone in media/nrl is concerned. What's the go? Why in gods name are thy being praised and lauded given their defection next year. What the hell is to gain from a Sam bill Williams love fest? Even now... It's the clash of Sonny vs Sam Thursday night footy. I'm perplexed.
