NRL is 'forced to delete controversial comments' from interview with Aboriginal State of Origin star who slammed treatment of Indigenous players

Another black whiner.  They criticize Australian society but want it to give them everything on a plate.  They should do as the Chinese do.  Get on with it regardless of social handicaps.  Chinese who look different and often speak little English still make an economic success of themselves.

The NRL has been forced to delete controversial comments by an Aboriginal State of Origin star after he raised concerns about racial discrimination in an interview.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg stepped in after Sydney Roosters star Latrell Mitchell, 22, made the remarks in an interview with nrl.com.

In the original interview published on Sunday, Lattrell was talking about  himself and other Aboriginal NSW Blues State of Origin team members Cody Walker and Josh Addo-Carr.

'NSW went real funny on us because we don't sing the anthem,' Lattrell said.

NSW Rugby League chief executive Dave Trodden was furious and threatened to take legal action against Greenberg if the comments weren't removed, The Courier Mail reported.

It is understood the Blues management team saw the comment as defamatory and sought legal advice before the quote was removed.

There were also concerns Mitchell broke media protocols when he did an interview without approval.

A New South Wales Rugby League spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia: 'The NSWRL is disappointed the issue has been given any air at all and we won't be making any further comment.'
