Which sport is the most self-censoring?
Posted January 18, 2019 02:00:10By the numbers:Self-censorship: The term comes from the fact that sportswriters have been encouraged to promote themselves as self-interested.
This is particularly prevalent in the sport of rugby league, which has been criticized for self-promoting for years and has faced widespread criticism in recent years.
In 2016, Australian Rules Football player Sam Williams was banned for 12 months by the Rugby League Players Association for publicly promoting his own interests in a series of tweets that criticized the league for its poor performance in the World Cup.
A similar situation occurred with former Australian women’s cricket player and AFL footballer Lindsay Thomas.
Thomas, who had a successful playing career in the game, also received a 12-month ban from the AFL.
The term “self-censored” has also been applied to rugby league players who have made a habit of expressing their opinion on social media.
In 2017, the NRL banned former NRL player Paul Vaughan for two months for posting comments on social networks that were “insensitive, racist, sexist, or homophobic.”
The sportswriter also faces charges for a series on social networking platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, in 2016.
The ABC’s Adam Simpson said it is not uncommon for athletes to post photos and videos that are considered inappropriate or inappropriate to others.
“I’m not sure what they are trying to say, but if someone’s taking pictures of you in a bikini, I think that’s pretty offensive,” he said.
“It could be a bit too extreme for a young athlete, so I would definitely think that those sorts of things are inappropriate.”
