Another cleverly orchestrated performance to ensure the rivalry and support of a so called sport, which in all honesty, is like all other choreographed events these days, a kind of travelling circus, designed to make people think it's real, so they'll keep buying the merchandise and keep going to the shows.

When this country starts to appreciate its academics to the same level they do drunken, womanising, drug filled morons, that's when it will have a future, but whilst it continues to idolise the steroid filled, short term gain mentality of the likes of sports people, it's on a path to its own destruction.

I once heard these lunatics described as not being real smart, but able to lift heavy things.

Seriously, who in their right mind would take on something guaranteed to make you an arthritis ridden, physical mess, with a lot of money you weren't physically able to enjoy?

I taught my children to aim at owning the Colosseum, not to be mindless Gladiators.

You have problems mate but at the same time you raise a few good points.

My son plays rugby league and he aspires to much more than your stereo-typical profile of the average player. Congratulations to Manly on a magnificent and fairly won Grand Final that was a befitting send off for possibly the game's greatest ever role model in Steve Menzies - a family man that doesn't drink or smoke, runs his own successful business and after equalling Terry Lamb's record of 349 1st grade games today leaves Manly in top physical condition and as an intelligent , thoughtful and virtuous man. Manly's coach Des Hasler has been an inspiration to noted author Thomas Keneally who has expressed his admiration for Hasler in prose when he was a player.
My son is also in the school choir, school play, school instrumental group, represented the school at cross-country running, long junp and rugby league he attends Tae-Kwon-Do classes and plays cricket. He is academically advanced, particularly in mathematics, and rugby league has been woderful for his fitness and confidence.
I've taught my children to be well rounded individuals and to set goals. Sport has taught them valuable lessons in committment and team work.
