Who Needs Handshake Anyway!

Post by barmy billy » Sun Mar 08, 2020 5:08 pm

Now that shaking hands has been outlawed by teams at the start of a match, might I suggest that the new 'Joe Marler' greeting (as demonstrated at Twickenham yesterday) is universally adopted at PR.

You never know, some of them might stand up & be counted.

Similar thing happened in an Australian Rules football match last season. Hawthorn player was beaten to the ball by a Collingwood forward to the “mark” and line up for goal. As they separated, the Hawks player had his full package grabbed and twisted. He pulled away quick and burst into laughter. Everyone thought it was funny in the commentary box, and the next day, the press thought it was Fking hilarious. And it was hilarious.

Only in Britain do people start calling for sexual abuse investigations! :shock: My God.
Sexual abuse? Really? 🤦‍♂️
Just read, “rugby fans call for Marler to face sexual abuse charges....”
I honestly cannot believe I’m reading this sh*t. You’d think he’d dropped and gave him a blow-job. This country needs to lighten the fk up.

I quite agree Marko. It was nothing more than an hilarious wind-up & it shoukd be treated as such.

Great victory over the frogs this afternoon by the way.

Made all the better by Gareth Thomas' comment and then the guys on commentary adding that England were playing better with the ball in hand!

Rolling around we were.

Just keep thinking that folks need to 'get a grip' when I hear the comments, but of course that is what is causing all the consternation in the first place.
