The list of Australian people and animals I’m willing to fight keeps getting smaller by the minute. If you go on the YouTubes, you can find video of every native Australian species fighting from koalas to wallabies. Getting punched by one wallaby while the other tries to proper fuck you? No thanks. I’ll pass. Maybe I’d consider a wombat reacharound but that’s it. My last hope was the children in spite of watching Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. So much for that.
An under-16 rugby league grand final ended in a massive brawl. The game between Blacktown City and Lower Mountains ended in chaos when several fights broke out between the teams. The worst left one player with a broken eye socket and nose.
“About 11am (AEST) … the under 16s match in Penrith stadium was almost finished when, after a try was scored, it’s alleged numerous players set upon a member of the opposition,” police said in a statement.
“This resulted in players from both sides involved in various incidents.”
The footage shows one teenager being punched to the ground before he is repeatedly kicked in the head and body, one of his attackers then running to another nearby scuffle to throw more punches.
Footage of the fight can be seen here. Needless to say, severe penalties were handed out. One Blacktown City player was banned from playing rugby for 20 years. His teammate was banned for five years while another is finished for two. Reports have some Blacktown City parents high-fiving their children as they came off the field.
In case you think this is an isolated incident involving Blacktown City, check this:
The brawl is the third violent incident involving teams from the Blacktown City junior rugby league club this season.
In July, two men were charged after an assault in a carpark following an under-12s game.
A Blacktown supporter also allegedly grabbed a 13-year-old player from Katoomba on the neck on the same weekend.
How have no Blacktown players or supporters been sentenced to a booting? Anarchy I tells ya.
Former elite Australian national swimmer Simon Partridge has retired from swimming at 21 and has decided to “let his hair down”. Apparently this includes dropping trou to show off a G-string with a donkey face right over his goods to his friends while on a train. That incident offended the other passengers a bit and got him arrested and fined over a thousand dollars for his discretion. Best thing about his crime? He had just gotten arrested 4 days earlier and was out on bond.
So, for as much flack as Michael Phelps has gotten in the past year…i mean, least he hasnt done this? Although, you can’t fault a man for wanting to rock a donkey g string. Who hasn’t felt the allure of wanting to wear a thin pair of g stringed undergarments with an animal on ? Am I right or am I right? Wait…I’m not right. Damn.
This video isn’t sports related unless lighting oil spills on fire is your game. Our intrepid reporter begs the helicopter pilot for permission to have a smoke while filming an 80,000 ton crude oil spill. Let’s just say that hilarity ensues. It continues when the minister of shipping tries to explain “what had happened” on a talk show. Warning: some NSFW language.
There may be no I in team but there sure is a me especially in Aussie Rules. Carlton’s Cameron Croke was knocked out by teammate Setanta O’hAilpin during an intrasquad training match last week. The two players scuffled off the ball and O’hAilpin landed a punch while Cloke was on his knees. The punch dropped Cloke who lay motionless on the ground. While he was down, O’hAilpin added insult to injury by kicking him in the ass.
A bit hypocritical for the Aussies to resort to stereotypes of Irish tempers in the news report, don’t you think? Maybe O’hAilpin was pissed off because he was named after a television network. Wait until ESPN Montana Real gets older.
