Have you heard the one about Robbie Farah joining the Raiders, and subsequently pushing Aiden Sezer out the door? We have, and we didn’t think much of it either.
Which is good, because according to the Raiders, it’s what we at The Obstruction Rule like to call “classic bullshit”.
The story originated on a rubbish click-bait site that we don’t reference here, but was later picked up by the more reputable Fox Sports. Since then, Fox have done their due diligence and discovered what we suspected all along – that it’s nonsense.
The story went that the Raiders were set to add Farah, then they in turn would release Sezer to the Bulldogs, who would then release Aidan Tolman to the Sharks. It’d be a good story, if it were true.
Enter Raiders recruitment boss Peter Mulholland:
“There’s no substance to those reports whatsoever. Farah is not coming to the Raiders, and Sezer isn’t leaving.”
So there you go. Nothing to see here. Please move along.
