As moods darken and the prospect of physical altercation becomes inevitable, it seems evident the rats of the social media sewer holes are being exposed in the daylight.
But now the keyboard warriors used to spewing their foul epithets into hyperspace unfettered by customary behavioural constraints are launching a verbal assault that will provoke real reprisal.
........And it finishes off on this profound note: The drunk abusive louts don't know the limits of decent behaviour, the triggered opposition don't know how to respond, those who went to cheer and shout loudly for their team are lumped in with the morons, and the art of barracking seems lost.
What an odd article. It's all over the shop.
It's a bit of a Milton the Monster piece. Three drops of essence of terror......
Slob I going on a ten minute rant about the Rampe non free and then has the gall to ask Horse if his opinion would be different had roles been reversed.
Can you imagine Slobbo had they been reversed "Nothing to see here, had no impact on the result".
The rule states you cannot intentionally shake the goalpost. Doesn't say you can't climb it. He wasn't trying to shake the thing, he was trying to gain height in case the kick carried so that he could potentially get a hand on it when he otherwise wouldn't have.
That has been explained to some of the media peanuts. But they're drawing their own roadmap from "deliberately climbing post" to "deliberately shaking post" by passing through the magical land of "deliberate acts with unintended consequences still count". He deliberately climbed the post. It shook. Ergo he deliberately shook it. No. No no no. No. If they want to apply that logic, jumping to try and spoil and accidentally nudging the post would be penalised too. Deliberately jumped. Nudged the post. The post shook. Stupid.
Rampe was, as far as I can tell, within the rules to do what he did. Doesn't make it good for the game, and perhaps that rule should be changed/clarified/added (though it's never been an issue before.....).
As it stands, it looks to me like a deliberate smoke screen to detract from the Ablett/Fyfe/Durdin debacle.
