Warriors reprimand - more broken than bent

Well I never thought I'd blog about rugby league, but...

To borrow from P!nk and Nate Ruess' single, "Just Give Me A Reason", it makes you think society is more broken than bent when a sports team is "reprimanded for displaying a relaxed and carefree demeanour in the aftermath of one of the NRL club's 'darkest days' as management react to a record loss to Penrith".

Come on, people, it's just a game. Actually I think the Warriors should be praised for their good sportsmanship and generosity of spirit.

If the Warriors' brand managers are worried about "good losing" being bad for the brand, perhaps they should be working on turning the perception of fans around, rather than perpetuating a national sporting attitude of which, I hope, we would all be embarrassed.

Here's the song, just because I like it, and let's hope our nation's sporting spirit is not broken, just bent.
