spruse, I'm not the messenger, Trent Robinson has that honour.
Pomoz, the NRL has made referees, the bunker, and the judiciary protected species, while coaches and players are fair game to the media post-game.
There will be no coaches-player trust until the referees, bunker, and judiciary turn it into a level playing field with the NRL making it compulsory for the trio to attend every post-game media conference.
You can bet no coach will ever criticise any referee from that point on, and the trio would have to justify their decisions under media scrutiny.
My bet is the referees, bunker, and judiciary will take more care with their original decisions, take more care with consistency, knowing the media will grill them post-game if they are sloppy,
Transparency is an unbeatable commodity.
Train, don't shoot the messenger. Rugby league is a great game as instanced by so many brilliant clashes this season..
But if you genuinely believe there's nothing wrong with referees, the bunker, and the judiciary, please advise Roarers where you purchased your rose-coloured glasses.
