What if the problem wasn’t Rugby League’s alone?

May 22, 2009 — 4 Comments

This whole debate over player behavior in Rugby League is bizarre. On the radio the other morning, John Faine went as far as comparing RL to AFL, suggesting that the problem was one of Rugby League’s alone.

Of course that’s bollocks. Anyone who has ever been around a football club of any code knows that these problems are evident in all, and you only have to go through the record of the AFL and see players there mucking up.

But what if the problem was one of sport, or male team sport in particular?

Consider this: DUIs the biggest off-field problem for NFL

The drinking problem is happening in the US as well. The difference in the US perhaps is that group sex wouldn’t raise an eyebrow.

  1. What if its just a problem with Society in general and any group of men is a possible one for this sort of thing. I definitely wouldn't rule the AFL out as possibly being involved in this behavior.
