Weak gutted dog!


Recommended Posts

Ricky Stuart not holding back calling Jaeman Salmon a weak gutted dog.

You don't hear that kind of language often from a coach.

Not ever do I remember hearing a coach publicly and personally slate a player like that.

it’s very personal for Ricky, as it usually is.

He is very much in the wrong for this public execution. I don’t like it

That’s the sort of thought he ought to have kept inside his head rather that say out loud.

Salmon deserves to miss at least a couple of games for his nasty play. 
Stuart should have left it all up to the judiciary to punish him.

I have heard coaches criticise players actions plenty of times but to have a go at his character like that is remarkable. 

He implies he has been associated with him before and drew this opinion.  No idea what this is but as a senior figure in the game Stuart should either be crystal clear in what he is saying or shut up.

Sticky's fines for losing his rag and speaking thoughtlessly over the years have probably kept the game afloat.

Raiders coach Ricky Stuart will reportedly be suspended for one game and slapped with a $20,000 fine

That's a decent chunk of money.  Do we know in these circumstances that the payment is strictly policed... i.e. it definitely comes out of Stuart's pocket and not funded by the Raiders. 

That's not a dig at Stuart, just wondering what the protocol is.

Good question. You’d think fines would come out of the players’ or in this case manager’s own pocket thereby being a deterrent, otherwise what’s the point. Anyone know for a fact?

The other question that then occurred to me was where does the money go. I looked around for an answer and found this:

“NRL fines traditionally go towards player wellbeing and education-related initiatives, as part of an agreement with the Rugby League Players Association when the monetary sanctions were introduced to the judiciary system.”
