Representative week could have been better TEST: Jesse Bromwich of the Kiwis passes during the Trans Tasman Test match between the Australian Kangaroos and the New Zealand Kiwis at Hunter Stadium in Newcastle, Friday.
DAN HIMBRECHTSWhat should have been a great week of representative footy turned into an absolute shemozzle over NRL players and an employee getting busted for drugs. Firstly though, let's talk about the footy and what I believe was a golden opportunity lost. The international rugby league administrators (whoever they are) could have made the weekend of footy far better. There was Australia v NZ on Friday night in Canberra, with youth, women's and men's games. Then there were international games at Campbelltown with PNG v Cook Islands, Fiji v Tonga and England v Samoa on Saturday. There was Queensland Residents v NSW at Easts in Brisbane and City v Country in Mudgee. It all sounds good but could have been so much better. This is not an original idea but why wouldn't they have copied Super League in England where they have their Magic Weekend, which is all their fixtures (one round) played at one venue over one weekend. It makes an amazing gathering of players and fans celebrating the game they all love. Why wouldn't they have done that in Australia last weekend? louis vuitton authentication melbourne They could have played all games at one louis vuitton shoes price in india venue, letting players, officials and fans have one massive weekend of footy, particularly with the passion the Pacific Islanders bring to the game. It would have been one hell of a time. Rather than players being insulated from the fans and each other for that matter, arriving by bus, then playing, then leaving, it could have been more like a festival In my opinion footy at any level is not only about competition, it's about life and it's about not only your mates but also who you meet along the way. You make firm friendships with people you play against and those that helped along the way. So I would think that even at the highest level an opportunity to get together and celebrate louis vuitton black epi leather briefcase not only the game but all who are involved would have been a pretty good idea. Now, call me psychic but I reckon I know what you are thinking. But with more footballers, fans and staff in one venue at least the police could concentrate all their resources in the one area. Opinion has been raging all week about appropriate punishment for the recreational drug episodes with many folk wanting them barred for life which I just can't agree with. I also don't agree with these guys being role models because really that's what parents are for. Do I want my grandson to pick louis vuitton neverfull replica ebay out a footballer or other sports person and model himself on them? No thanks. I want my grandson to model himself on his dad and his mum, learn from the mistakes they have and will make knowing that everything they do is a best endeavour to making a good life for him and those around him. Leave the footballers and crew to make their own mistakes, with their only influence being the way they strike the ball, tackle or conduct themselves on the field, not in the rest of their lives. Sure they need to be punished but nailing them to the cross when so many of us have made similar mistakes is not the answer.
