Maybe a forum isn't the best place for you if you want to avoid negativity and moaning, surely differing perspectives are the whole point of debate? RL is surrounded by negativity, because there is plenty to be negative about at times. However in the current circumstances, it appears perfectly valid to disagree with the whole concept of the honours system and what it stands for without it being a slight on RL or Scully. Better that than being a hypocrite in changing views that have been expressed in the past when RL was not the beneficiary of such honours.
Well done Paul Sculthorpe, congrats on a very deserved award.
And as usual, all news is bad news for a lot here, must be a NH thing to whinge and whine about everything, follow another sport ffs because I'm sick of reading all the posts whinging and whinning about everything to do with the game.
What in the world did RL ever do to make so many people feel down?
Nothing, that's what, it's just in your whinging whinning blood.
It's nearly 2013, get out of the dark ages at last please.
Notwithstanding the above it is nice for RL to be recognised on a national stage and Sculthorpe in particular for his charity work as much as his contribution on the field. Its his personal decision whether he values the gong or not. I don't respect him any more or less whether he has three letters behind his name or not.
