    A Political Thread

    Calling someone by another name is by no means denying their existence. Not even close. You can call me whatever you want, that doesn't mean i cease to exist. It can be rude, impolite, uncalled for, ridiculous, even illegal, but saying that someone's words deny someone else's existence, well...

    A Political Thread

    C'mon Oly, you can make the very same argument without using unnecessary labels. I wouldn't say it's secondary but i get what you mean. Strictly speaking, it is probably secondary. Allow me to elaborate: in my line of work you tend to catalogue problems in 4 categories: basically all the...

    If you dont mind me asking, why? Are you sure a red offence is necessarily worse than two yc offences? I am not. In fact, I'm inclined to think in something like a high tackle, two YCs is probably worse.

    Please explain

    We've got bigger problems and we're retarded, we'll find a way to **** up things, no matter what we do. We couldn't organize a **** up at a brewery even if our lives depended on it. We are in one of the most delicate financial situations on the planet AND we have the longest quarantine. If you...

    Rugby AU: Australia Domestic: Round 1 (03 - 04 July 2020)

    Thought Angus was a bit harsh on the ponies at the scrum.

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 4 - [04 - 05 July 2020]

    Wasn't talking about the ref, more about how a couple of offloads and plays worked out for the landers. Took their chances instead of playing it safe and they looked way more effective than usual, both on defence and offence in the 1H. Regarding the ref (again, 1H), other than a forward pass he...

    Super Rugby Aotearoa: Round 4 - [04 - 05 July 2020]

    Thought they got the rub of the green here and there but solid job from the landers. Quite entertaining game.

    Just like your choice to dodge questions. And regardless of whether i think your question is relevant, i am not afraid to answer a straight question from you. That's the difference. Have fun.

    Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

    I was thinking of replying to your points, but since you dodge the questions that are not convenient to your narrative, what's the point?

    Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

    So you basically label the questions you don't like as "absurd", without any justification whatsoever, in order to dodge them. Got it. How very tolerant of you.

    Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

    Let me take this up a notch, just for argument's sake and please, for the love of god, dont take what I'm about to say personally. I am just trying to push the exact same logical argument to it's extreme, to fully understand it's consequences. What if the same people who find this offensive...

    Very few kiwi posters anymore?

    He had good moments, exceptionals ones in many cases, i agree. I dont think anyone here will dismiss his added value to many threads. He also sincerely believed he was god's gift to the forum and we should all place rose petals on every footprint he left and bow to his every word. He treated...

    Entertaining game. Penalties a bit over the top here and there. .

    A Political Thread

    I don't have a problem discussing both, but since different problems might require different solutions i find it more efficient and clear for every intellectually honest party involved to treat one problem at a time. Otherwise, you keep going back and forth between different issues and switching...

    I dont have a problem with you disagreeing, course, but i do have a problem with you making a statement and presenting as facts/revealed thruths when you haven't presented evidence to support them. Allow me to illustrate with an example. You imply that the problem is police brutality towards a...

    You know i like you, but this is as condescending as ***** and you've presented no evidence to support such claim. No he did not. This was, as he mentioned, about unarmed black people being killed by the police. Specific problems require specific solutions and the first thing you need to do is...

    Fly half

    Saving the distance from amateur to top tier pro, i couldn't help thinking of Felipe Contepomi when you described yourself. He was a very opportunistic player thou. Fast (not feet, head). I used to think that way, now I'm not so sure. I've heard TONS of players/sport psychologist say...
