Ban the Bump? Rubbish!

May 29, 2014

All this recent rubbish about banning something in footy called “The Bump”…

Get real, you wimps. It’s meant to be a man’s game. And a contact sport.

Watched the first State of Origin tonight. One broken arm.  Two dislocated shoulders.  Blood everywhere… And that was just during the opening ceremony before the kick-off.

Don’t believe me?. Well, I have to admit that the last bit  is  an exaggeration. But the list of injuries wasn’t.

After Union, Rugby League is the SECOND best sport in the world, and, as I have said before, I would love to see the Maroons up against an AFL side. But would people pay to see a 15-minute massacre?

P.s. The Queenslanders wuz robbed.

    I’m a Maroon supporter. Don’t hold it against me, but I was a banana bender for 4-5 years ie. I lived in Queensland for 4-5 years.
    The Cockroaches out-performed the Maroons in the first half. They were just too strong.
    In the second half the Maroons came back hard, real hard and there was not enough time to equalise.
    It will be hard for Qld to win the next game in Sydney. There will be a psychological disadvantage.

    Just for the record, don’t think that all Queenslanders are Maroon supporters. I remember a pub in the outback and there was a giant blue cockroach above the bar. The locals had no choice of where to drink as the next town was 75km away. The XXXX was as usual cold and terrible.

    Mike, the amount of blood and injury should not be used to glorify the merits of rugby 😦

    For more of my thoughts, come visit me 😉

      It’s a MAN’s game, Bob. And like, you, I support the Maroons.

    AFL is the man’s game and there is more thinking involved.
    In rugby you just run and fall.

      I agree with bert. And AFL is better than rugby…….by a mile!
