With all due respect Gray-Hand I won’t engage or comment on anything you post, your condescending way is very offensive

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Well maybe (except for AFL) the standards are higher

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Your suggesting that my suggestion somehow can change a result, I’m confirming that right now refs are being corrected for future games ( and that’s without a koom ba yaah)

Agree with the lack of quality, wouldn’t hurt to have em front a post match summary

25.7

Cam Smith made 400, but is a triple-ton against adversity worth the same?

Many here are suggesting the refs are being disrespected and constantly harassed which isn’t the case in RL it may be the case with the Victorian game but not here

Tackle was at the high level dangerous
“Spear tackle” is a term that doesn’t exist, never has in any official rugby league rule book
The term “spear tackle” is media owned

Sorry Ricky: If the game is to be safe, we need send offs

400 beats 300

They don’t answer to ANYONE THATS MY POINT E47 !! When was the last time they did ! Dude you’ve just completely contradicted ya self, or is it a “let’s mock Insider for his opinion day” lol

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

My point exactly, so how would you feel if from now on players were off limits! No questions please, we have media offices who you can speak to, refs hide because it’s harder to face the truth, some are unable to face mistakes, the bias they have to certain players and clubs, your right don’t let anyone ask the refs anything keep it quiet

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

BA yes true, great 1 example, people here are carrying on like it’s a regular occurrence

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

That’s one jurno you picked ,
Who holds anyone accountable for their opinion,

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Ben everyone agrees their

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

I just gave you the example of the question “costing us the game” the refs are very capable of handling players in the heat of the moment I’m sure they can handle a controlled interview, it’s not about trying to change an outcome of a game simply more an exercise in transparency and accountability, maybe just maybe everyone is scared the refs might say “ I’m under instructions” ( agenda driven)
I’ve just also realised many here are confused Gray-Hand I believe the AFL crowds are the ones responsible for the ref bashing, they need you over the dark side

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

It’s not a hanging session simply asking why the ref felt it was a knock on, or a sin bin or a Penalty try is that unacceptable?
Ref :” I believed the player had control”
Jurno: “ and what about the similar try in second half”
Ref: “ was similar however I felt he hadn’t control”
Jurno: “ the replay shows you were wrong”
Ref: “ l will have a look at it and if I believe I made a mistake I will address it”
Jurno:” but you cost em the game”
Ref: “that’s how you feel I understand, I will review and respond “
Is that so hard ? Really ?
Mary is about to be savaged by StG faithful and you want refs to be unacceptable,,,,,, not me

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

E47 that may have been the case in the past, the present suggests otherwise!
So enlighten me on the reasoning behind 12 penalties in first half of SOO 3
And only 3 in second?
Enlighten me on why every Monday since 2019 season began refs boss had fronted media to apologise for ref blunders
Remind me when the “boss” had been disrespected during these conferences or in paper!
And then explain to me why the boss can front but not the ones who are so incompetent

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

I’m simply stating that everyone’s accountable for their performances
Brad Fittler, Paul Kent, Buzz, Blocker there are to many to mention! Even the Roars Mary all posted or had PLENTY TO SAY ABOUT LATRELL
I’ve used the most recent examples of referring incompetence as they are most recent and fresh in people’s minds
No point looking for any ref bashing articles, not enough are written to justify your assumption

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Gray-Hand when was the last time a Rugby League referee had to be escorted by police off the field? Home? To a game? Had a death threat? To suggest that fans in Australia have little respect for refs is a cop out! What is quite clear is that this is the ONLY SPORT IN AUSTRALIA where an offence in first half is not an offence in the second half you should have a little more ,,,, let’s say respect for the intel of footy fans ? Yeah ?

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Gray-Hand “ public humiliation “ that’s your spin mate! Are you a referee?
To say that it won’t change the decision is simplistic and insulting because that’s not what I’m suggesting, will it change future decisions doh it does and that’s without having to front anyone, emotional well those who love the game become emotional just like the players and coaches who represent them, for 80 mins at least, it’s clear to me by the lack of understanding with what I’m suggesting that your not vested in the game a groupie who hangs around for the “entertainment value”
Those who work hard, continuously purchase merchandise involving themselves with all the support networks the game has interests in and pay a membership are at least entitled to expect more than the current status

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Gray-Hand If your not concerned about these decisions your not as interested in the game as most of us are, you accept ineptitude and just enough , sorry I don’t my expectations are higher, just as my expectations are high of my chosen club and all involved I’ve the same expectations and professionalism from those who determine who wins and who loses

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

E47 Good for some , when Latrell “failed” expectations he has hounded, and still is, don’t give me this BS, as for a player making mistakes your right however drop form and they are gone, consistent ref bashing ? What paper what article ? Again LATRELL MITCHELL,
You are yet to explain any example I’ve raised nor have you given an alternative to my suggestion simply hidden behind a fallacy of “bashing refs” seriously time to find another angle

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Paul you make sense, as for throwing them under a bus sorry but they stepped out in front of that bus, SOO 3 highlighted on the biggest stage of the year how poor these refs are, as for blaming Admin well they aren’t in the bunker or are they on the field the only blame they carry is not making their department accountable

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

Players, coaches are expected to front the media and explain everything, from game management to what milk they use on their cereal, why can’t Paul Kent, Andrew Moore, Andrew Voss, Dan Ginaine and co ask a ref why did you make this call? Why didn’t you make the same call as you did last week? How is it a team can play 80mins of football and only give away 2 penalties ( a recent international ended with Tonga giving away 1 penalty! SERIOUSLY)
If you can’t understand why some of use would like an explanation then maybe your not as concerned but let me say this, the current state of affairs is pathetic, and some well many are saying it’s managed furthermore only a few feel it’s a “whipping” exercise it’s not, everyone involved in the game at every level is accountable EXCEPT THESE REFS

Proposed NRL rule changes fail to address the real problem

AJ your surly not serious? SOO a game of two halves from a refereeing perspective ( and you want fans of a tribal sport to just sit their and accept that rubbish)
Manly v Souths, after 80 mins of playing the toughest team sport on the planet and your going to expect me to accept that Souths only gave away 2 penalties? Seriously don’t insult our intelligence, 3 tackles all the same in 3 different games with 3 different outcomes
1) sin bin
2) on report
3) play on ( until MRC gets involved)
AJ this is the most recent, please your an intelligent man treat us equally, you earn respect! I’ve said before but here goes
Make refs front media and make their actions accountable just like coaches / players / CEO’s
