Penrith are set to be announced as the next team locked in for Las Vegas next season.

Nrl has stated they want to be taking 4 new teams.

From what’s being written we haven’t been mentioned as even a possible long shot to be there which is a shame.
Oh well. At least we can enjoy the footy without having to stress about our team.

Maybe we are being financially responsible. Until our new leagues club is thriving we need to penny pinch as much as possible. I'm sure the NRL doesn't cover absolutely all costs.

Disarray? "Sporting team in high collison contact sport needs to react to injury through extended roster designed for this occassion " doesn't have the same ring to it I guess
They're ****ed without him. His kicking game was immense on Sunday. Brown is massively overrated.

Moses has been pretty amazing. But let's see. Injury is bringing the field back a bit and there's still a lot of quality in that side

Here’s one for the wokes



I for one say overturn the result if they are going to behave like that.
Did she try telling the security or cops or just save it for twitter knowing she'd get a few responses like that giving her an article to write?

Twitter isn't real & what goes there isn't news.

A DT opinion piece is probably barely better than twitter. As a writer for DT though I assume her job is write for DT not crowd manage Leichardt.
If people are yelling at the players loud enough they want them to hear it presumably the crowd facing security could have acted without help.
If it is dribble and bants and funny yell away.

Another Sharks fan I know also said it was awful, she has big anxiety issues so probably didn't feel comfortable going and seeking security to speak to.
Two stressful weeks in a row for her after Crichton booted a ball at her face the week before haha - different kind of anxiety that brief scare vs the Tigers crowd stressing her out.

Not end of the world stuff but if familes, older people, women, aren't comfortable at footy games it doesn't do the NRL any favours.
Sounds like security need to turn their hearing aids up and put their glasses on and not expect everyone at a small ground to do their job for them.

At Optus there is a text line you can report crowd issues. I know someone who works it, they had a woman use it to report her husband for not buying her chicken nuggets recently, so at least the NRL crowds aren't that bad.

Walking out some random politely got up in my face and told me to **** off back to the shire because I was an inbred ****. Never seen the bloke in my life so I'm not sure how he knew so much about me.
Sounds like that's your fault for not telling security about it

Well if you want it to stop report it. If they do nothing then you got 2 things to bitch about!

I'm not condoning that behaviour but tweeting & hoping someone else does something aint getting you any resolve. If you're too uncomfortable reporting something that makes you uncomfortable then you got bigger issues to sort out.

If anyone in the crowd took upon themselves to tell them to neck up (which she seems to expect) it probably starts more **** & you'll get kicked out too - or worse. I can cop that noise & enjoy a beer so no way I'm defending some other ****s sensitivities. Cops & seccys all over the place it's their job to sort that rubbish - whether they were aware or not I can't say but I know 100% if she told them that they would then be aware of it.

The daily telegraph is not a tweet still, but the sentiment someone should raise it with security is fine.

Perhaps she now has by using her platform?
Wonder what gets more action going forward - Karen who tells random security guard who just wants to sit around that she heard swearing or the whole venue/club being called out by a major media outlet (even if it is just an opinion piece on there).
Good chance it actually is the second one.

Apparently security responded to multiple incidents so perhaps they were told/saw things AND someone wrote an article about it

Well it didn't solve her immediate problem of the deplorable behaviour. She says herself that polite society shouldn't tolerate it - she tolerated it.

Did she call out the club & venue? Seemed to call out a group of dicks at the footy and whoever responded unsupportive on twitter, which is gonna happen on the internet. People who read & respond to her tweets are representative of nothing more than people who read & respond to her tweets.

Jai Arrows season is likely over. Going under the knife for his injury.

Huge loss for the maroons along with Tino.

Wonder if he'll yell at the surgeon after his procedure like he did when Talakai had finished his
