Re: American Cops behaving Badly (All inclusive thread)

I was listening to an interview with CC Sabathia today - retired baseball star. His oldest boy is 16, learning to drive. First things he taught him, as is commonly the case for black kids, is how to behave if the cops pull you over. Just so, you know, you don't get shot.

Re: Jerome Garces

Nige was excellent today tbh And I don't rate him at all usually So, so performance, controlled the ruck as well as anyone, but he gets in the way of the halfback pass far too often. Missed on obvious holding back on Barrett that ultimately led to the first Irish try, and then cocked up the Todd YC...

Re: Crusaders vs. Highlanders Thread: Quarter Final of the R

On the Squire YC.

A good decision. Squire was not trying to tackle, he was not trying to charge down the kick, he was trying to hurt. His arm was straight and swinging with no attempt with it or his other arm to wrap.

No place for it in the game.
