Just for the record, this is a world first? Has anyone in the history of pro sports taken a game off to go to a wedding?

I'd like clarification on this please.
Rory McIlroy???...Sorry got that wrong...he got smart and called it off.:D

Because as Polynesian posters have explained that weddings are very important to Polynesian families. I, like many Palagis couldn't care about weddings, you only need to go to the Registry Office and then somewhere for a bonk. Half the marriages end in divorce anyway, and even more the second time around. For Asians and Polynesians it is the joining of two extended families.
what a crock of shit.
 
If you don't sacrifice for what you want, what you want will be the sacrifice.

I have no problem with Sam going to his sisters wedding. What I have a problem with is him getting paid and getting picked for the game after the Bye...

If someone is willing to sacrifice everything for victory then they get picked ahead of the guy who goes to the family party. I'm sure Lisone will get picked to be best guy at the party so he's not missing out.
 
fuck, so he can't go to his sisters wedding if it's in the pre season either now
It's a free country. He can do anything he want's.

But reality is reality. If he wants to win lotto then he needs to buy a lotto ticket. If he want's to play in the NRL he has to maybe think about not going to weddings during the NRL season.

Im in this camp.
You are free to do what you want. But if you want to be great at whatever you do, it requires total commitment and dedication.

I wouldnt think guys like Ali, Jordan, Kobe etc taking work time off for a relatives wedding. These guys weren't taking time off to sleep.

You think our players going to party's, forming gangs, taking prescription meds, coming back in preseason overweight and our constant mediocraty are unrelated?

no, I think they are definitely related. What I don't think is related is missing your brothers funeral, missing the birth of your child, missing your sisters wedding.

OK so please explain why it took Bam Libone to be the first guy in the history of sport to miss a top level pro game to go to a wedding?

I wonder what the backlash would be if Shaun Johnson skipped a game to go to a wedding.
Touche...
Hell to pay.
This place would go mental.
It's not so much about one player for one game but what is the precedence we are setting here?
What if next year a dozen guys have weddings during the season?
Everyone alright with that? I mean it's only fair if bam can do it...
Anyway I think you're right- this topic has been done to death now and we don't have all the facts anyway so that's all from me.
Now over to you jonno jonno with the weather....
LOL that read like a TV One News round up..... Jonno U gotta change your Nic to Jim Hickey....actually scrub that....no nic changes please.
