In fairness; the referees have a huge say in who wins the game; a penalty on the fifth tackle running the ball back, is worth so much more than a penalty on the first tackle when you are on the attack.
The good sides know this and try to milk them, i.e. Broncos and Melbourne. They only need to get 1-2 per half and its a game changer. What I would like to see, is a player penalised for milking!!! Wouldnt this be great to see!! Although the chances of a referee penalising Melbourne for this would be 1000000/1.
All I want to see is consistency from the referees, but all I see is that they have their favorites (who never get penalised) Brisbane/Melbourne and the sides they do not like (Roosters).
Example last game. Brisbane player plays the ball about three metres in front of where he is tackled...... result Broncos penalty, Roosters inside the 10......... next half; opposite happens, Rooster player plays it about 1 metre in front of where he was tackled..... result asked to go back and play the ball. Shocking refereeing. But its what you see all the time, referees are too scared to penalise Benny and Craigs teams.
Oh and 5 minutes in the bin!!!! Its a must; any player that stops a team scoring..... 5 minutes in the team! Any player that slaps, 5 in the bin and given a pink dress to wear for 24 hours.
Knights are specials this week; Roosters are shot; Aiden G; how is he running around in first grade?
SKD is in the worst form of his career, Fergo doesnt want to be there. Gordon has had enough. The forwards are soft.
Knights 13 plus.
The solution is easy.
Put him on gardening leave and dont let him play for anyone.
