Plenty of rl fans appear to be happy for Price to use phrases like this, and anyone complaining is just woke. See social media and the match thread for this.

A 'Mong' is a derogatory term of a person with Downs Syndrome, and other similar associated disabilities. These people often have a physical strength that is above average

Some people believe that when someone with learning difficulties/special needs gets wound up they can appear to be significantly stronger than expected.

Maybe I'm wrong not getting the pitch folk out but is he not just shortening the word mongrel in that typical Aussie way, mongrel being commonly used as in players showing a bit of mongrel when talking about fight and desire?

Now I know it means different here but I don't think that was the meaning he meant.

Possibly but that explanation won’t fit some people’s agendas

Mong strength is a specific phrase.

Almost certainly not. I've never heard anyone shorten mongrel to mong. Mong has long been a derogatory word for people with down syndrome

Your seriously trying to defend him using terms like 'mong' in a televised interview. This is every bit as offensive a terms used based around someones race, colour or religion.

I'm sure high profile Warrington fans like Adam Hills are delighted with their head coach using terms like this in TV interviews.

I guess your OK then if he starts referring to Inglis as a fat crippled 'Abo' based on his overweight body structure, his constant injuries and his racial background.

nobody in the history of mankind has ever shortened mongrel like that. it makes no grammatical sense.

It was exactly the meaning he meant.

Just now, Damien said:

Well a simple search does say its used that way

mong

[ muhng, mong ]SHOW IPA
 
 

noun Australian.

mongrel, especially a mongrel dog.

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/mong

Now, find examples of +strength that make sense beyond the also well understood, and apparently, well known phrase used.

have you ever heard anyone ever, refer to a mongrel dog as a mong dog?

 

I'm 44, my family have rehomed a number of non 'pure bred' dogs from the rspca over those 44 years, i've had many conversations with people, whilst walking, and talking to others about them.

 

not once has anyone either corrected me, or said, unprompted 'mong dog'

😆 Yeah right

I've heard plenty of aussie commentators in the NRL refer to players as mongrels, when those players are perceived to have a bit of fight or aggression in their play.

Even the supposed shortened version of 'mong' has no reference to physical strength

It is irrelevant what I think and know. It is a term that is obviously used in Australia that is short for mongrel dog and Price is Australian. You may not like it because it doesn't suit your agenda but its a fact:

Excellent.

So, like Damien, off you go and find that +strength used in that way.

And where in that definition is there any reference to a players strength, which is exactly the phrase Price used 'Mong Strength'

Just an FYI - you don't get paid for everytime you type the word agenda.

Can you find me an example of an Australian using the phrase mong strength to refer to mongrel dogs being stronger than pure breed dogs and then applying that to humans?
