 self-control and common sense...

 

Perhaps. But that's easier said than done and surely applies to alcohol and drugs as well. I've indulged in quite a few vices in my time. Maybe I've been lucky, but none of them have ever got a hold of me. I'd like to think I was smarter than those who succumbed but I'd be kidding myself.

There are people with biological predelictions to certain things, there are people who stumble across the wrong thing at the wrong time, and there are people who never had a chance from the start. Vice has always been with us and always will. 

But what I think a thread like this highlights is that people judge things through the prism of what they like or don't like. Railing against one whilst simultaneously indulging in another. I like gambling, and I can control it....bollocks to that.

and who cares where the kids are ??


 well, I often go for a social half-hour...so does my mum and my sister...

 know a lot of others at the local club who play bingo in the morning, have a quick play on the pokies....then go home... they pay their bills and just have an outing at the club...

 yes, there are hardened players who put their whole paypacket in...but there are a lot of lonely people who just go for the social outing...especially the older brigade...

Pretty fair to say all relationships...not only marital..have some level of "control". So the term "control" in itself is not the issue...its the type & amount

A lucky one too.
Rugby League has a lot to lose if they get this wrong.
THOUSANDS of kids will be steered away if the NRL don't wipe this lot OUT.
Bird is a great player but A NO GOOD.
He has to go. LIfe.

Watch the crowds dwindle .

Maybe because it is full of drug trafficking criminals who send the kids to Soccer or needle work.
The Ozzie rules is home to a few " sniffers " too.

Thumbs Up  those clever enough know you can control anyone ( spouse, kids, dogs, whatever ),  in a nice non violent way if you just use your brain a bit.
control isnt always bad.  its just what type is used, and how its applied, thats the problem.

Oh , and  , who calls a kid Karmichael ???
He was doomed from the start with a name like that .
His parents should be hauled over the coals for dropping a name like that on a liddle kid.

Doesn't the manager or someone high up in the QRU have the same name ?

Yeah, very lucky I was not pressured into having kids to please my family . Or having one by mistake.
I chose not to have kids.   
Obviously you stuffed up and one came along.
