      What has God got to do with it Alicia? Look at all the unhappiness in this world, why should God choose to let this couple be happy and not millions of others? I'll tell you a secret. God doesn't exist. Being happy is very close to being lucky. Millions are starving, but lets ask God to let this couple be happy. God doesn't grant happiness. Go read the bible, he creates misery.

    A Bulls player is any father-in-law's dream. (And mother)

      @Cape, at least they don't throw tables at weddings ala Schalk Burger.

      Neutedop - 2012-07-03 15:33

      Taurus, so throwing a table is worst that drugs, paying for pleasure, or beating someone to death? geez, only in Blue Bull country! And PS - it was Schalk snr, and it was a week before the wedding.....

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 15:22

      So your sister can stop harrasing him.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-03 15:39

      Harold think more it is a question of: so Dayan can stop sending him love mail...

      DayanGovender - 2012-07-03 16:00

      DayanGovender - 2012-07-03 16:12

      ha ha ha you guys are so hilarious - goes to show what you consider news worthy

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-03 16:20

      Dayan not all of us are such a SUUR KNOL soos jy. We like to get away from day to day activities and have a laugh at the same time.. Poor you the world is upon you...

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 16:28

      Charlie, this IS my day to day activity.

      Jaco - 2012-07-03 16:35

      @harold, I was just about to say...With the amount of comments made I dont think Charlie or Harry has any other day to day activities. haha... Good on you Harry for admitting it.

      DayanGovender - 2012-07-04 08:28

      My Charlie whoever - there is a laugh and there is useless information!

  • stephen.axtell.7 - 2012-07-03 15:42

    Very unusual for Bulls player/ supporters, normally the family tree is one straight vertical line

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 15:58

      Tree, straight line, whatever. 3 Cups to 0.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-03 16:21

      Stephen if it wasn't for the Bulls, South Africa wouldn't have had a history...

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 16:29

      The groot trek would've been fruitless if it wasn't for the emergence of the Bull.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-03 16:44

      lol.. Charlie and they thought Bloed Revier was a minor incident...

  • anwar.addinall - 2012-07-03 20:16

    Thanks for that. Wouldn't have been able to get through the day without this information. Wow! CJ getting married. Amazing!

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 20:26

      I think you struggle to get through the day, regardless.

  • anwar.addinall - 2012-07-03 20:29

    Don't think too might hurt yourself.

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-03 20:57

      The fact that you commented in the wrong place, really negates your comment's effectiveness.

      Benny - 2012-07-03 21:17

      En daar maak ou anwar n groot gat van homself.

      anwar.addinall - 2012-07-04 14:51

      Harold, I prefer to have a line between us.

  • kenjaymay - 2012-07-03 22:27

    Hopefully he will not be a bull when he comes back! nee sies man, daar bring hy nou skande op die Neethling familie!....Ryk praat met hom asb, 'n Leeu of 'n Cheetah ja!... maar 'n Blou Bull nooit!

      sean.brady.14224 - 2012-07-04 11:20

      I think more to the point, we hope he does come back...
