There is a Golden Rule in Rugby League that states: If you wanna f*cking it up, leave it to a Pom.
So goes every single thing the Poms touch when it comes to Rugby League, it is like they have a national commitment to Rugby League disaster.
This time around the dirty, soap dodging whingers have failed to pay any of the prize money to the victorious 2009 Four Nations Champions, the Australian Kangaroos, who won the competition by destroying yet another English team in one of their closest fought finals against the old foe in years….46-16.
The Rugby Football League, who no doubt have been accumulating interest on the $220,000 in prize money they have been withholding, basically just kept their dirty, stinking mouths shut and hoped the incredible athletes that make up the Kangaroo’s lineup would just, you know, forget about the $10,000 per man they are entitled to by destroying England once again.
It got to the point where individual player managers and then eventually the Australian Rugby League were forced to contact the Rugby Football League and demand these payments are made.
Of course, more than two months after the event, the RFL are still playing petty, stupid games, saying they are still calculating hotel costs the Kangaroos squad incurred during their long, drawn out, cold, wet stay in Northern England.
Now I’ve never accused the Poms of being smart, get ten of them in a room and they would be flat out having two IQ points to bang together as they sing God Save The Queen. However, they haven’t worked out what was missing from the mini bar by now, something is terribly wrong.
Any decent hotel will give you a list of what you owe them before you even leave. In fact I know people that are not me that have spend hundreds of dollars on room service and pay per view porno-graphical movies in just a couple of days stay.
Any time someone hands you an itemized list that shows you like Spaghetti Bolognese and watched “Teen Sluts 15 – Lesbian Edition” five times in 48 hours, you pay the extra and walk to the taxi as fast as you can!
So the Rugby Football League KNOWS what was spent by the Australian players, they just haven’t paid up because like all Poms, they are a bunch of tight arses and most likely, criminals.
The thing that worries me is that these morons think they will be able to run the 2013 Rugby League World Cup!
If these stupid, arrogant, self important losers can’t work out a room service bill, how they hell are they going to be able to coordinate a large scale international sporting competition?
Oh, thats right, they have already shown they can’t do that by the crippling financial disaster that was the 200 Rugby League World Cup!
At the end of the day, if you want something done right, you don’t ask a Pom to do it.
Hence, the Golden Rule….
