It's all being reported wrong - dier did nothing wrong.

Jack Reed (impersonating dier) was loose & a complete tosser & bailed Luke up while he was trying to have a quiet drink.

The gronks there injerjected with howls of protest, laughter, farts and... kept drinking somewhere else...

I think, but many brain cells have vanished since then.

I had a couple of big nights on the turps with Hitman Harding about 10 or 12 years ago, poor bastard wasn't in a good place. Heart of gold and a good country lad from Grafton but felt he'd been ripped off in his career and was suffering from the victim mentality.

Gotta say that his first world title has got to be one of the bravest fights I've seen.

Can't stand Andrew johns absolute wanker, however his brother ****ing awesome! How can both be polar opposites.

Does it have to be sports as I met the head female of our country a few yes back and didn't like her.

Ha ha. I used to teach Kade and he was a bit of a tool at school as well. Also taught Luke Walsh Brad Tighe and Dane Tilse. These three were champion kids. ( not overly bright but good quality young men)
Inglis was also at my school before we suspended him. ( knob of the highest order) having said that I wouldn't mind seeing him in the blue black and white

I'm assuming you taught at hunter sports high?

Yeah. Not there any more. Heaps of kids from there have gone on to play in the NRL. Most of those kids will have an exceptional grasp of Australian Geography and History. Ha ha

I was working at a Trade Show yrs ago & I was giving advice to Adam Macdougal & talking footy, he seemed to be a good guy.

Tara Dennis & Jo Griggs from Better Homes & Gardens are both nice & friendly ladies.

Living in Newcastle I had the miss fortune of meeting Andrew johns a few times while on the town. Absolute douche. Everyone in Newcastle knew he was on ekkies way before he admitted to it on the footy show.

Haha and you think he is the only player from any team to do so? I could open up and tell you stories that could sink quite a few players. From many different clubs.

I knew what johns was like from my days bouncing in Newcastle. I don't know how many times I've kicked him out of one of the clubs I worked at. And put him in a cab.

Yeah there are certainly plenty that do it. I've had a few interactions with 20's players that come to the club that I work at. One in particular who has now recieved a life ban from our club.

At the end of the day what players do on their own time is their own business.

Bloody oath. I couldn't care less... Infact you have to have even more respect for the blokes that muck up and still perform at the top of their game IMO.

Agree. And I can tell you now. Choices between dealing with a bloke who has had a skin full of booze or a bloke who has downed a few pills I know which one I'd rather be dealing with.

Intact I'd say most players that have played up (notible incidents where it has made news) have been drunk rather than on recreational drugs.

Down here our major problem is everyone that does the recreational drugs do it when they have a gut full of piss anyway.
