Prominent rugby league commentator, club CEO, coach, assistant coach and ex-player Phil ‘Gus’ Gould is ropable about the new decision to indefinitely suspend the 2020 NRL season.
Moments ago, ARLC chairman Peter V’landys and NRL CEO Todd Greenberg have fronted the media over their decision to suspend the 2020 season.
It is heartbreaking news for both fans, players and gossip the NSW police force, who are now looking for other ways to spend their winter.
However, no one is suffering more than the rugby league pundits.
As journalist, Gus Gould makes up a long list of whingeing couldabeens that thrive on the peripheral limelight they snag from the game.
Now, without a steady stream of salary cap speculations and Latrell Mitchell gossip – they too are going to have to find other ways to spend their time.
The Betoota Advocate made an extra effort to be within earshot of Gus Gould when he received the news.
“NO NO NO NO NO!!!” said Gussy.
“They just can’t!”
Gould went on to echo the sentiment of ARLC char Peter V’landys.
“An Australia without rugba leg is not Australia!”
“And a Gus Gould without rugba leg is just some old codger at Panthers League’s club front bar!”
“WHAT AM I GOING TO OUTRAGE MYSELF AND THE AVERAGE PUNTER WITH NOW?”
V’landys confirmed there would be no end date to the closure and insisted all options were on the table, with the league to convene regularly with the aim of getting the product back on the field.
At time of press, Gould was seen driving towards Taree to sniff out another clickbait scoop about Latrell Mitchell’s rather squeaky clean personal life.
