I didn't say anything about the last couple of months so why bring that up and also why use such a small sample size? It was an observation about the NRL getting like the NFL in the offseason, which is a fair comment imo.

Also, NFL players know how to behave do they :lol: , have a word with your self. If you truly followed the NFL you'd know about all the discussions about their behavior in the offseason over the years. Aaron Hernandez doesn't spring to mind no? or Rae Carruth, Stanley Wilson & Sam Hurd. They're just a few former NFL players that are/have done serious time in prison, all 15 year plus sentences. A more recent one, what about Mychal Kendricks, he's up this month and could face 25 years or what about Adam Jones, who's been charged with god knows how many different types of crimes over the years.

ATEOTD most that are reported are for DUI's or domestic violence, for example, Michael Floyd in 2017 got sent down for a month or so for DUI or Donté Stallworth had to do a year for manslaughter while drunk at the wheel in the middle of his career. Plus there are loads of former NFL players doing serious time as well.

Tbf In real numbers, they're no more likely to get in trouble in that age demographic than people in other jobs, the same as the NRL but obviously, they are high profile and in this day and age of social media, CCTV etc people get caught more.

Even a NY times article from a few years ago highlighting it.
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/13/upshot/what-the-numbers-show-about-nfl-player-arrests.html

An article highlighting the domestic violence problem.
https://www.pennlive.com/expo/news/erry-2018/07/5705c996636274/nfl-players-arrested-for-viole.html

Or what about a site that highlights among many other stats that NFL's players get arrested on average every 7 days. It also shows there's been 8 crimes in past 3 months, 20 in the past year. It sort of busts your claim about the past couple of months & totally takes a dump on your point about NFL players know how to behave. :LOL: .

Someone at the club told me he is on his way to Cas to replace Gale.

He’s not, for a few reasons.
1. Cas have the maximum number of non-fed players allowed.
2. He’s likely to be charged with criminal offences and have his passport confiscated.
3. He’s likely to be involved in a trial.
4. If the allegations are true, no club will touch him with a proverbial barge pole.

If his beaten up his partner it would look terrible on Cas as well as Superleague if they sign him.

If what is reported is true Barba is done with Rugby League. There is no way back from that.
