@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly The great vanishing act! @KirstiMiller30 Trans erased!

Writing a book about farked up things people did back then.

Sad thing is people don’t get it when it comes to trans lives: we do matter even though some people think we don’t & our very existence is drawn into question.
@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly 1/2 The pic bottom right shows male winners names still on there. Mine & Belinda’s are missing.

If they only took my name off list they’d appear directly #transphobic but underhanded way they did it erasing award winners before me & Belinda makes it harder to hold to account.
@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly 2/2 It was calculated & final straw after being assaulted at club training, ostracised at rep training & bullied on team bus back to Sydney from ACT. Yet I was player suspended.

Silver lining was rep stuff got better & bullies gone from Sydney team - 2006. #Rugby #transathlete

Muchos preguntan porque NUEVA ZELANDA es una fábrica continua de talentos

¿Cómo esas dos pequeñas islas de Oceanía son los reyes del rugby? 👑🏉

Hay muchas aristas, pero sin dudas, unas de las respuestas está en el rugby colegial
Esta tan importante representar al First XV del colegio, que muchos alumnos lo toman como el primer gran paso en sus carreras deportivas.

En este hilo pongo énfasis en el tradicional duelo entre AUCKLAND GRAMMAR SCHOOL vs. KING´S COLLEGE para mostrar el significado del deporte
KING´S COLLEGE es una institución fundada en 1896 y establecida en Otahuhu al sur de Auckland.

En tanto el colegio público AUCKLAND GRAMMAR SCHOOL, creado en 1869, está en el corazón del centro.

Right, rugby (and other contact sport) friends, gather round and let me try to share with you some slides & ideas I presented at the @NFLResearch Conference on Collision sport in London last week. This set was on nudging safer behavior, it’s a thread. But it’ll have pictures…1/
2/ First, a philosophical issue that *SHOULD* influence actions (subtly). Change is hard. It’s resisted. That’s as true in the #NFL as it is in #rugby, and in any other sport. These quotes are basically interchangeable - players, coaches, media etc - push back against change.
3/ However, we also can’t allow the tail to wag the dog - if risk is too high, change IS necessary. But how much? The key question, for me, is how you achieve “change without change?”, as this slide asks? Change X but not Y (the sport) (too much). That’s key to getting buy-in.

I have used ESPN3 for streaming rugby. What ESPN has done is taken away (it seems) *all* rugby content. In some cases they've done this somewhat gradually, like cutting out almost all @ChampionsCup @ERChallengeCup to where only a few games were streamed each round. (1/x)
The @top14rugby was dropped completely. They kept @SuperRugby coverage, where all games each round have been streamed. Now I've found that after taking away all rugby coverage from ESPN3, I can now get "additive" and "complementary" coverage of just some of that lost... (2/x)
... coverage for an additional $5 a month on top of the $ I already pay them in a cable TV pkg. Frankly, I find this pretty shitty. Maybe I'm wrong and someone will adequately explain how this is actually a great thing. But for this to make sense to me, you'd have to... (3/x)
