In what comes as a real feather in the NRL Off-Season’s Cap, the greatest game of all has successfully managed to score a few big headlines in the midst of the current media landscape.

With nearly 100 people dead from the Coronavirus which is spreading across the Asia-Pacific region and locking down huge cities in China, the horrible news regarding the helicopter crash which killed Kobe Bryant and eight others, and the historic impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the NRL Off-Season has impressed the country with its ability to stay relevant.

This comes after allegations an NRL player punched a cop and was tasered by police in the middle of a long weekend bender.

The behaviour is set to bring NRL CEO Todd Greenberg back in front of the green press conference backdrop for the first time in a little while.

Speaking exclusively to The Advocate this morning from his office, Greenberg said he couldn’t believe he was about to get through a long weekend without having to deal with any work shit.

“Then I got the call,” he sighed.

“You can’t help but think that this is the NRL Off-season getting a bit jealous about the attention all these other events were getting.”

“Suffering from a little bit of relevancy deficiency like Barnaby Joyce, Malcolm Turnbull and Israel Folau.”

“Anyway, whatever it is, we are back, I’ll give a full statement later this arvo after we’ve figured out exactly what the fuck happened.”

More to come.
