Maybe they need to repeat them every few years? The old ones they did seem to have worn off in their impact. Boys need a refresher.

Panthers slapped with breach notices over post-grand final antics

He’s not good enough to keep getting away with crap.

Panthers slapped with breach notices over post-grand final antics

I predict this rule will never be enforced

There could be some very weird diamond ducks in the Big Bash with huge rule tweak

How we get a failure of one of the most basic things officials are responsible for beats me. Just outright incompetence/negligence. And while the ref and touch judge were out there screwing this up, was the bunker asleep? Surely if anyone there had been paying attention they might just have said “hey Gerry, he’s not lining up on the right mark”.

NRL promises no conversion blunders for grand final

I think the higher ratings reflect only 1.5 quarters where the Dogs were good. They should have all scored zero for the 4th quarter, so a max of 7.5 even if they were perfect in the other 3.

AFL grand final player ratings: Western Bulldogs

Amazing turnaround! I thought the Dogs just about had it, and then suddenly Petracca and co went “bang” and the game completely changed.

'One minute to end 57 years of pain': Talking points from Melbourne's extraordinary premiership win

I knew there’d be an article about this. I agree with you, trainers should not be on the field anywhere near as much as they are.

Why does the NRL do nothing about it? My guess is that it’s too hard and they’re too lazy to come up with a fix.

V’landys, Abdo, Annesley, McGuirk and the trainers: Failure and zero accountability

or else they start a brawl immediately on top of them if the injury is caused by foul play. 😛

V’landys, Abdo, Annesley, McGuirk and the trainers: Failure and zero accountability

While we’re at it, why do highly paid footballers need constant coaching from the referee? Just let them play, and penalise them when they break the rules? Is there any other sport where this constant coaching happens? Are NRL players especially dumb?

V’landys, Abdo, Annesley, McGuirk and the trainers: Failure and zero accountability

That happens all the time. Ref should tell them to piss off, and award a penalty on halfway to the other team.

Meh!

US commentators go nuts as baseballer takes standard cricket catch

Watch now – he’ll be gone by about round 8 next season.

Wests Tigers make the call on Michael Maguire

Well they already go for HIA’s when the only obvious injury is to their lower leg. So faking a heart attack isn’t much of a stretch.

NRL hands Panthers breach notice over controversial trainer incident

If it’s in your own quarter = automatic penalty. If it’s in first 3 tackles, the 6 again gets added to the end of the existing full set of 6. If it’s in penalty goal range, the attacking team has the option of calling for a shot at goal (I mean very quickly, within a few seconds). Also, once a team has received 3 in a half, all subsequents calls are penalties.

Peter Sterling explains why he thinks the 'Six Again' rule needs to be amended

How typical of the NRL to allow similar things to happen 50,000 times without worrying about it, and then jump into action only when it possibly affects a close game, and more importantly, generates sufficient negative publicity. Another example for Tim Gore in his case about the (in)competence of the NRL Operations manager.

NRL hands Panthers breach notice over controversial trainer incident

I can buy that the Luai one wasn’t the referee’s fault but the touch judges. However, I don’t accept that the bunker has no responsibility, they are there as insurance to pick up stuff the on field officials miss. If they aren’t picking up stuff like that, what the hell are they there for?

'Should have warranted a penalty': NRL admits crucial error in Eels loss - but digs in on other calls

It’s been going on for at least a couple of years. I hate it. It’s really blatant when the blockers move late to get in the way of the chasers, or worse still, grab hold of them. Should be penalised out of existence.

Another one that bugs me is teams who take the kicker to ground uneccessarily. Generally it will be slightly late, and they’ll take them to ground gently. No harm done so never penalised, but does take the kicker out of play temporarily, unfairly.

Has the NRL's blocking the kicker 'trend' become too out of control?

I think play should only be stopped when its heading in the direction of the injured player. So in defence that would only be where they are in or behind the defensive line. Obviously there are going to be exceptions to this, but only at the discretion of the referee.

'I don't like it': Gorden Tallis slams NRL injury rules after Mitch Kenny incident

It seems weird to me that free interchanges due to foul play don’t have to be used at the time of the incident, to replace the player who was injured as a result. To allow it to be saved for later use strikes me as a stupid rule.

Interchange controversy sours defensive performances for the ages: Talking points from the NRL semi

Not all one sided though. I thought Niokore’s 2nd report was worth a sin bin. It would probably have been had (a) it not been a close game (b) not a final, (c) the crackdown was still a serious thing.

Interchange controversy sours defensive performances for the ages: Talking points from the NRL semi

Why was Pangai allowed a free interchange? I don’t remember anyone being penalised, put on report or going for a HIA at the time. Wasn’t it when Kenny had his foot trodden on?

Brad Arthur takes aim at Penrith's 'whingeing' after Panthers' epic semi win

This I agree with. But I also hate seeing Manly win.

You mean the wall that was obvious except to the officials and one-eyed Roosters supporters.

What success? They haven’t had any yet.
