Train Without a Station
Is it just a rumour, or true that Cheika made a statement on Beale's behalf to be submitted to the tribunal?
Still current?IS, there is zero evidence that any Wallaby or anybody sent the 2nd text at this time. The truth will come out in time, but look outside the current Wallaby tent.
Not a lot of evidence of smart heads anywhere around this. But I do think that is a very appropriate beneficiary and the ARU can at least salvage a sliver of dignity.
The next steps here are really interesting. If Beale stays in Australia to play rugby I would think it likely:
- he will receive less $ than he could receive in the NRL or overseas
- he really wants to play for the Waratahs and the Wallabies
- he probably values the support he has received from those closely around him
If he wants to stay there will be little the ARU can do it about because I think they have placed themselves in a very weak negotiating position.
Still waiting for some humble pie to be eaten here. I cancelled my fast because there is no need for me to save any room for it.
What are you basing this on?
24 years old: an adult who is expected to vote, earn a living, and can make binding contracts.
The problem with all these online petitions is that there are too many floating around. If we want to do this, we need to pick one and get right behind it.
Your right it is a fantasy. A fantasy i have is a world where females have an equal role to play and treated with the same respect as males.
To what end?
Should the ARU have ignored the tribunals verdict and chucked down their punishment based on what angry internet commenters deem appropriate?
they just aint what they used to be. My 2 step sons, little younger than KB (Kurtley Beale) and both Joeys boys as well are the 2 biggest idiots I have ever come across. All their mates are the same, and all their mates mates are the same. Zero respect for woman,
Oops you've changed the argument on me.
Please just hold your thoughts, and review in good time to see how far off the mark you are with your original position I commented on, not this new thought you threw in late.
Based on so many posters calling out individual journalists and media groups as having secret agenda's, accusing them of making stuff up, taking sides etc.
Others ridiculed the articles written, and point of view or position taken simply because the journalists were from rugby league, or were not solely rugby scribes.
I'm not really proposing an end, just stating that 10 petitions with 500 signatures isn't as good as one, strongly worded petition with 5000 signatures.
Rubbish.No i haven't. All i've said this whole time is that KB (Kurtley Beale) committed an act which was sexism in the highest order. I firmly believe that the ARU could have done more to protect her. They chose to protect a male player over a female employee. That's my position and always will be. It was nothing to do with weather Beale should have been sacked or not. It's a duty of care.
and yes Link and Cheika have a role in this if they knew about the texts.
