Raiders reduced to speed bumps in the Rabbitohs fairytale journey. Canberra 16, Souths 38

By johnboy 16 September 2012 23

Foxsports has the grim tidings from last night’s thrashing of the Raiders:

South Sydney are one step away from a first grand final appearance in 41 years after brushing aside Canberra 38-16 in Saturday’s NRL semi-final at ANZ Stadium.

Rookie halfback Adam Reynolds was the star of the show for the Rabbitohs, scoring a try and kicking seven goals on his way to becoming only the second player in the club’s history to chalk up more than 200 points in a season.

Eric Simms was the last player to record that feat in 1970 – the year the Rabbitohs won the 19th of their 20 premierships – and they must now beat Canterbury next Saturday if they are to add to that tally.

The win was Souths’ first finals victory in 25 years.

(Note how the Raiders are irrelevant to the narrative)

That’s it for Raiders Fever (TM) 2012, hope you enjoyed the ride.

I’m sorry to have upset you Dr Koresh, I did not mean to patronise. My tone was intended to be jovial sarcasm, sorry it came across as smug.

I don’t have much time for sport, like nationalism its primary purpose seems to be to divide the populace and provide a common enemy. I don’t think less of someone for enjoying a game, but I suppose I do hold some level if disdain for the zealots who hold their game or team as supreme and holy.

Mostly I’m just mad that sport results are considered news, every channel dedicates a quarter of their news to the latest scores in various games. Its not that I particularly dislike sport, I just think the footy results are about as important as the checkers results or someones farmville score.

So maybe that feeling shows through some how, but I wasn’t trying to be patronising.

Bwahahahahahaha, either too puny to play and only game enough to sit and belittle from behind a computer keyboard or 200kg and too lazy to do anything else but sit and belittle from behind a computer keyboard so as to become 250kg next month.

I do not mean to insult or troll, if someone has criticism of me, I take it on board and try to rectify my actions. I am open to having my opinions changed by convincing logical arguments. Dr Koresh raised a legitimate concern and I attempted to address that point. I still find hand egg uninteresting and have not shifted from that position.

I played sport in school, I was pretty midling, not the worst, not the best, just uninterested. Playing can be fun enough, like any game, but watching it can be quite dull, like any game.

Also I said that rape was *like* a cry for help, in that their actions clearly show they need help. Not that they brutally assaulted a young girl with the specific intent of seeking help. You’re either misunderstanding or misrepresenting my comments.

Would you honestly say footballers aren’t meat heads? Isn’t half the point to bulk up and then bash into each other? And is it really fair to even call it football when it is clearly hand egg? I am sorry for upsetting people, but I still think my description was more accurate than belittling.

That was never my point. I think rugby is a mugs game – bunch of gorillas on one side trying to bash through bunch of gorillas on the other side to see who gets the banana – you were far from offending me.

I was just highly amused at how completely owned you got by Koresh’s comment #10 and how hard you tried to wriggle out of it instead of sticking to your guns. Proves you know you got owned. You won’t manage to offend anyone in future if they know how easily you fold.

Being owned is a trolls kryptonite. How does it feel?
