The issue being I if you don't go there to read it or buy the paper don't be surprised if they drop or diminish their coverage.
It's a bit like complaining about the lack of local green grocers on the high street while doing all your shopping in Waitrose ( I was going to put Tesco but as a southern RU fan I have a certain image to maintain)
An article that positive from outside the code's normal sphere of journalism, an article that makes more positive points about RL to a new potential audience than you'd normally see in a year and that's what you took away from it?
And people wonder why RL has trouble expanding.
But if every speccie or every player disregarded the rules in this way there'd be no game - not just Union, League, soccer, cricket. What if a soccer player picked the ball up and threw it into the net and no one turned a hair? The whole point of sport is that it's played in an artificial framework of rules. If someone is running down the street having stolen something it makes perfect sense to trip them up, or knock the stolen article out of their grasp, but within the artificial context of sport it doesn't. TBH I don't see the difference between what the speccie did and what Back did.
A participant breaching the rules of a game can be dealt with under those rules, in a nationally or internationally organised sport such as Rugby those rules will have a process for dealing with breaches and sanctions that can be applied up to and including not being allowed to play that sport again. A non participant does not come under that jurisdiction and any interference in play by them would need to be dealt with under the wider legal processes, in the case in the original post it could potentially lead to a charge of assault and a criminal record. It's a clear and obvious difference.
Its worse than Arrogance, it's also a cynical ploy to reduce the perceived importance of International Rugby while pretending to care.
Australia are I'll admit the top of the international tree but it's not a tree with too many branches on right now and to help the smaller branches grow will take time money and effort which will take money and time from the likes of the NRL.
If the Roos play a team made up of the best the rest of the world can offer and win then it gets trumpeted as showing how weak international competition is and the best way to improve the smaller nations is to get more of them playing in the "toughest rugby competition in the world" and concentrate on the NRL.
The chances of a scratch team put together a few weeks before the match being able to gel together enough to even give the Roos a game is minimal at best, the nearest equivalent is probably the RU Barbarians or Lions and neither of them have a particularly good record against the All Blacks.
