Ha!

Talk about pipe dreams - Artie Beetson with a Super League Team ?  That'll
never happen.  I saw Beetson on Fatty's Footy Show one Sunday (or it may
have been Chris Bombolas's Thursday night effort in Brisbane) and I seem
to recall he is about as anti Super League as there is (with the possible
exception of Arthurson and Quayle).

Politics should be put aside.  Let's have a team that represents Australia
as a whole (like Kym said), not just the ARL or SL.

The country deserves to see the *best* boys playing out on the paddock, not
those who happen to have sworn fealty to whatever political machine holds
the selection power at the present time.

Enough ramblings for the present.

Steve.

PS - I've been out of Australia for a while now - what is the story for the
ARL / SL next year ?

I think you missed my point. I SAID I DON'T WANT A SL TEAM WITH A SL COACH
EITHER! OK?

Thats what I said. I was merely pointing out the fact that it is REALLY
interesting that everyone complains about the fact (me included) that the
ARL have picked an ARL only Australian side (which, so you don't
misunderstand me again, is a BAD IDEA!) but no one seems to mind the fact
that the Super League will be playing tests against other countries and
NEGLECTING TO PUT ARL PLAYERS ON THE FIELD! Now do you get it? That is my
point. Next year, I do NOT want two Australian teams running around.

My point about the coach is for an Australian side, I did not say SL or ARL
side(s).

Thats what I said. See above.

Thankyou.

Two competitions next year. I hope they can settle their differences and
pick just one Australian team, but it doesn't seem likely. I also hope that
we don't end up in the same position we were in in cricket between late 70's
and early 80's where we had such a shit team that everyone seemed to be
beating us.

Regards,

Rob.
