    The fairest thing would be to have them do their thing before their GF and the men do it before theirs. Do they give the winning grand finalists presented with their trophies straight after their match or to be all 'inlusive' why dont they all get up there together and receive them?
    Agreed

      On Ruan Sims, she has really progressed to be a very good commentator on the game. She has that rare mix of footy IQ and being able to communicate it. Also comes across as an intelligent and nice person. Although softly spoken, she even gets some humour across too.

      Sterlo is the only male commentator who ticks all those boxes similarly, for me.

        I agree and I don't mind Greg Alexander either. I've always found him a very articulate and humble person.

            As for the other stuff, complete different kettle of fish mate and we had better not go down that path on here. To put it simply tho, how is it fair to mandate a certain number of positions for females over males? Surely that's discriminatory against males? The best candidate for the role/position should get it. Its sexist to have it any other way. I employ my staff based on what they can offer and I don't care if that person is black/white/pink/yellow, young/old, male or female, although I would probably draw the line at transgender. That shits just messed up! lol
            Obviously you don't work for the hardworking and under paid Public service (mmm thanks NSWIRC for our 0.03% payrise instead of the usually annual 2.5% one ) - its all about inclusiveness - Straight / LBGTQI+- they have regular events - colour and theme days etc etc.

            Our Secretary of our department encourages us to have a coffee/lunch/zoom catchup's with different folk(background/nationality/sexual orientation etc ) as well as attend their workshops/events- wanted volunteers to organise a float for the mardi gras - dont think Mark Latham would like Public Education used in such a way though.

                Its traditional to give the trophy to the winning team after the game - goes back to Roman times as do stadiums - nothing new - gladiators etc would receive awards from the local governor/dignitary for being the winner of whatever event was held (their freedom/ wooden sword on retirement etc) - ditto the ancient Greek Olympics where the winners were awarded wreath of leaves etc

                  I know exactly how the public sector works and those things you mention are exactly why I won’t work there. I’m not going to say no to the right candidate simply because of a doo gooders policy that we need a certain percentage of minority representation. That sort of policy is revered in the public service and causes exactly the same issues and resentment it is supposed to address.

                    Oh so now you want to live in the past?

                    i thought you were all for inclusiveness and moving with the times so as not to be left behind right?

                        15.5% - but we always put the public first in providing quality customer service. One time last year i even interrupted my afternoon tea one day to answer a customer enquiry - that is surely dedication to the public

                          Just pointing out that without the Greeks and especially the Romans the concept of stadiums wouldn't exist and thus no sport perhaps and awards for the winners - Women went to these sports events even much to the angst of some on here i suggest- they were inclusive in some ways the Romans and even had Female Gladiatrix's (Female equivalent of a Gladiator)

                            Fair enough but they never had their women walk out with their men to recognize their retirement. Women actually did fight in the Colosseum but it was more light entertainment than anything else and they fought animals like hippos and giraffes. It wasn’t really full on contact like the men. So thanks to the Romans and their colosseums, we still have hippo fights called the WNRL today! (Joke btw!)

                              Its a joke and it's forced down our throat.
                              there is no way the womens game could stand alone , it would fail miserably , so we have to put up with it riding the coat tails of the NRL.
                              call me old fashioned or a dinosaur and I'll take it as a compliment...

                                Sorry I don't agree with that at all. Look at the Roosters/St George game round 3 last year at Leichhardt. Look at the SOO games at North Sydney Oval. I understand plenty of footheads don't like it and thats fine .
                                But there are plenty of people that do and that number is growing.
                                I actually don't think it should be played as an opener for an NRL semi, they should be stand alone. The NRLW GF probably should but games had a couple of hundred people watching at the ground if it was standalone they would have had between 5000 - 10000.


                                On the GF retirement parade, so what. I see a far share of wankers that gave nothing to the game get celebrated why not celebrate a woman that has done an absolute bucket load for the game.

                                On that they should have had Shannon Gallant on the parade, he only played a handful of NRL games but a bucket load of Cup, Massey and Shield and has given a lot to the game. He finally retired this year
