Heart break is a funny thing. I mean we’ve all got a story that could define a heart breaking moment for us. Sometimes these things are gone in a day and others stay with you for what feels like an eternity. In the sporting realm heartbreak comes in many shapes and forms. It could be an injury to a key player or it could be that crushing defeat from a formidable rival. Maybe thats why we all love sport so much…in sport we all bear witness to the same heart wrenching stories and its something that can be shared. That being said though Sporting Heartache can be cured using a simple 5 word remedy…”there is always next season”.
Throughout the month of December I’ll be posting an article every Wednesday about a range of topics that I wouldn’t normally talk about during the season. Part 1 has to do with the NRL Salary cap and a few ideas I had concerning it. I’ve named it the ‘Off Season Chronicles’ which will hopefully become a regular during the month of December. Enjoy.
I know…I know…I know…I said I was off until the start of the 2012 season…I lied. Like you care? I’m giving you a reason to not do work right now. I’m also giving me a reason to not do work right now but that’s beside the point. December is a hard month to be a football lover because your brain is slowly regressing and you start forgetting all those ‘important’ facts (The Editor doesn’t seem to agree that knowing the names of every player in the NRL is important…she’s crazy!!). You’ve already forgetten the Dally M winner from 2011 and you can’t even remember who won the premiership…unless you live in
Kurl Kurl Curl Curl and you are still celebrating
I’ve been told that one the best qualities a man can have is to be ‘humble in victory and gracious in defeat’. Throughout the season I’ve made some comments and fair amount of assumptions about all 16 teams in the NRL. What the October Release does is prove just how wrong I was in most cases. I will try to be humble when I’m right (which is very rare) and gracious when I’m way off the mark. Yes, this is an article where I talk about how terrible I am at predicting the outcomes of teams at the start and midway points of the season.
According to the research I did, there are more than 15 live rivalries in the NRL in 2011. I completely disagree with that total. That’s why I sent out that survey, thanks again for filling that in guys and gals. I found out those results also disagreed with that number. Why do I disagree with such a reliable source as Google? Not only that, but why do you?
