James O'Connor could go to London Irish

I apologize before creating this thread. I didn't know whether to put in: "NRL" or "Super Rugby" then I put it here, since he's still a Rugby Union player...

James O’Connor draws interest from league:

If he can't act like a gentleman then maybe that's the place he should be. I really had hopes for the kid when he first came onto the scene, but I've been very disappointed by his recent antics. And I don't think it's just what he's been doing that's at issue, but probably the thing we don't really see - his attitude. If a good player (and he IS a good player) acts up a bit but shows the right attitude, he's not likely to be blacklisted as O'Connor seems to have been by the union teams. That just makes me think there's even more to the stories we've heard, and if so then who wants a player with a bad attitude? Nobody...'ceptin' those dirty league folks. ;)

To be fair there is only so many times a man can get mistaken for Bieber before he turns to drink.

It's us BO'Dhists who should be told to straighten up, but don't really want to.

I'm not exactly sure...I'm waiting to see what the BODhists have to say...couldn't find anything online about this, it's very intriguing.

I don't understand people's problem with O'Connor. He has acted unprofessional but on the field he tends to always perform

He's a bad role model
He's letting his teammates down
He's embarrassing teammates, coaches, the ARU etc
He's embarrassing his sponsors
He's causing disharmony in the Australian squad
He's putting national coaches under pressure and inviting greater scrutiny from the press

etc etc

As a professional rugby player, you just can't act like a cünt off the pitch, it ain't gonna work. If you do want to act like a cünt, get a labouring job and go play club rugby.
