I know nothing about rugby, even though I played it at school. I just kept away from the ball, as I did in all team sports. But in spite of my lack of knowledge, Manly beating Melbourne Storm by 40 points to zero sounds like Melbourne did not do so well.
I think we Victorians can be thankful of that and less will be seen on tv and during the news.
If I am tired and cranky, when I sit in front of the tv, I am inclined to verbally criticise every thing I see on tv. Program plots, continuity, newsreaders hair, pronunciation, supposed facts. I do this until R rightly tells me to shut up.
But there is one occasion where he joins in with me. When rugby comes on the television news, in unison we yell, 'We just don't care'. I don't care about Australian Rules football either, but I tolerate it for all you fans out there and it is a Victorian game with a long Australian history.
So Sydney, take your ball and your boof heads with no necks and stay out of our state. NRL players make our AFL players seem quite intelligent. K?
