If you haven't seen it already, NRL chairman Peter V'Landys has spoken out defending the decision to let Penrith winger Taylan May to play in the NRL finals despite being found guilty of assault.
The 21-year-old was fined $7,500 by the league with half of it suspended and banned for two games, but in an unprecedented move by the NRL, he is allowed to serve it at the start of next season so he does not miss the Panthers' finals campaign.
V'Landys says:
"A lot of ex-players look at it through the players' lens, we look at it through everyone's lens. And the most important person now is the fan.
"Why penalise the Penrith fans for an indiscretion the player did?
"The person that should be paying the penalty is the player, and they will because they've got two matches and a substantial part of their salary."
I have many thoughts on this, but you didn't come here for that. Do you think the NRL made the right decision to have May's suspension… suspended? Let us know by hitting the blue comment button.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened to completely cut energy supplies to the West if it tries to cap the prices of Russian exports.
Speaking at an annual economic forum in the far-eastern port city of Vladivostok, Mr Putin scoffed at the EU's plans for a cap on Russian oil and gas prices as a "stupid" idea that "will only lead to a hike in prices":
"Will they make political decisions violating the contracts?
"In that case, we will just halt supplies if it contradicts our economic interests. We won't supply any gas, oil, diesel oil or coal."
He also vowed to press on with Moscow's military action in Ukraine until it achieves its goals.

Sanderson was released by a parole board in February while serving a sentence of over four years on charges that included assault and robbery.
He had been wanted by police since May, reportedly for violating the terms of his release, but there are limited details available on the specifics at this stage.

Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said there will be an investigation into the parole board's assessment of Sanderson.

"I'm extremely concerned with what occurred here. A community has been left reeling," he said.

Sanderson's brother Damien, who was also wanted over the stabbings, was found dead near one of the crime scenes earlier this week.

"Let me thank my husband, first of all, for such spicy remarks," she began with.

"And of course thank you for Joe and Jill, President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, thank you for inviting us back. This means so much to us."
(If you missed said spicy remarks earlier, they're further down in the Loop 👇)
Ms Obama acknowledged that artist Ms Sprung joins a "small but mighty group of women" to have painted official White House portraits:
"I'm thrilled that this extraordinary work is going to be enshrined forever as part of our nation's history, but Sharon, it was wonderful to work with you.
"You are a true spirit, that's one of the reasons why we connected, your work is phenomenal but it was your essence, your soul, the way you saw me, the way we interacted, and it shows in this beautiful work. So thank you for your brilliance, your artistry and your patience in this process."

Better battery life, faster operating systems, better cameras — Apple has officially launched its iPhone 14 with all the bells and whistles you'd expect.
According to AP:
"Among the latest improvements is a 48-megapixel camera in the Pro and Pro Max models that the company said will produce especially crisp pictures.
"This year’s high-end models will also have always-on displays that stay lit even when the device is locked, a feature that has long been available on many smartphones powered by Google’s Android software."

Can't wait to see what that always-on display does for my already-embarrassing screen time report.

ICYMI yesterday, the Australian 23rd-seed will not progress any further in the US Open after losing to Karen Khachanov in the quarter-final.

Kyrgios said in a press conference after the match that he feels like he's "let so many people down":
"All credit to Karen. He's a fighter. He's a warrior. I thought he served really good today. Honestly, he's probably the best server I played this tournament, the way he was hitting his spots under pressure.
"He just played the big points well. There really wasn't anything in it. I'm just devastated, obviously. I just feel like it was either winning it all or nothing at all, to be honest.
"I feel like I've just failed at this event right now. That's what it feels like."

"I want to thank Sharon Sprung for capturing everything I love about Michelle," he said.
"Her grace, her intelligence, and the fact that she is FINE. She is! Her portrait is stunning.
"And I want to thank Robert McCurdy for taking on a more difficult subject, and doing a fantastic job with mine."
Mr Obama also took the opportunity to thank his wife Michelle:
"Michelle was the best thing about living in the White House, and let me tell you, the pastry chefs here deliver delicious pies on request, so that is saying something.
"I could not ask for a better life partner, and in my humble opinion, America could not have asked for a better first lady."
