That last paragraph says you didn’t watch the game…tighten up the discipline ?
You mean the discipline that’s been described by Annesley as 3 ‘crucial outcome deciding’ errors by the 4 refereeing officials he’s relieved of duties for next week ?

"Ref's fault" culture ruining rugby league

No, I’m not..they all appeared to be instantaneous decisions and who knows what the referees were thinking at the time of making those decisions..but Trent Robinson could have, and it’s a sub conscious could have, in the RTS instance, been close when he refers to referees over correcting..

The defn. I’m running with in this instance looks pretty unloaded and cogitation lacking to me

They don’t need to be fair ?
Hopefully we’re both working on the same definition of fair ie if A team gets penalized for infringing rule x then B team gets pinged for infringing rule x…that’s what I’m working on..if not..you don’t make sense to anyone who’s ever played sport..

They dont need to be even Mary absolutely..just fair..
You dont get the focus on the match winning try ?
Check out the still on the front page of the online SMH and let me know what
the physics say on how that ball could ever be deemed rule definition forward..
I’m not a regular ref basher by the way..but when theyre tragically wrong..burying
your head in the sand isnt helping..

"Ref's fault" culture ruining rugby league

If you watched the Warriors game on the weekend and didnt feel angst with some of the decisions they had to wear you oughta check your pulse..they rose above the 9-2 penalty count,they rose above the 3 in the tackle strip..but on the bell Rogers out the back of the hand, how is it even remotely physically possible to propel the ball towards your opponents goal line from that point of delivery…out the back ? And that didnt cost them the game ? How in Hades the release of Shaun Johnson has to the result of this game…pretty sure Kearneys decision on that has been more than justified by the way…is mystifying at best.

Will Dunamis keep his spot when Young and Sutton come back ?
Still need to squeeze Joey and Cotric back into a winning team as well..
Were $21 to win the comp in June…now at $12…

Eight talking points from NRL Round 19

Isaac, an interesting insight into how coaches view your very issues regarding intent is in tonight’s Ricky Stuart’s presser..I share his views totally.

One area where union smashes league

2 things Isaac..has anyone in an official capacity outside of his coach (surprise) used the ‘not his go excuse’ ? No one,objectively would..it’s a zero course of rebuttal and insignificant to the argument…but more importantly can you cite me the quote where Ponga says he was playing the man..this is crucial..to tackle Chee kam would NOT have prevented the try..to wedge his body between the ball and Cheekam would have..ie there was no tackle.

‘These things happen’ is not lazy..otherwise we wouldnt have an HIA non return with no apportioned blame in nearly every game..unlike union there is far more hurtful intent in every collision,from both the runner and the pack defenders.

One area where union smashes league

How long he was binned was totally irrelevant..it’s already been assessed as ‘ no case to answer for’..so belated common sense..wish they’d share it around..

Robbie’s 300th inspires the Tigers, while the Red V continues to die a slow death

True, but as the coach pointed out in the presser…the defence…goodness, Robbie and Benji went thru the middle of the ruck..for the second week in a row Mann was doing little more than throwing an arm out.. Ese’ese needed to be stronger on the line and Gavet is a non contributer..they just shouldn’t be sifting the wheat from the chaff at Round 20..

Robbie’s 300th inspires the Tigers, while the Red V continues to die a slow death

The thing is it wasn’t even a tackle or an attempted tackle..his intention would have been to get his body between the ball and player Chee Kam and legally obstruct..crazy..dismal performance nonetheless…Mann, Gavet, Herman E. all shockers..

Robbie’s 300th inspires the Tigers, while the Red V continues to die a slow death

This is the best article of Roar’s Gore I’ve ever read…seriously good.

CNK's honesty makes all the cold pies totally worth it

slapping it on a bit there..but theres truly no one youd rather send it to when youre sides in a clutch..

Official: James Maloney to leave Penrith and end career overseas

Can you give even one example of a player who Newcastle have let go that should have been kept for further development…or even one player who on being let go has been nurtured into a solid first grader by their new club and walk back into the Knights starting team..the only 2 you could refer to as developed players,let go recently, Meaney and Cogger …well, do you really rate them ? Brock Lamb had so many chances…when champions like Ponga, Pearce and Klemmer come on the market,you just buy..

Knights, Titans and Sharks must clean up off-field mess

Do you really think the Sharks bought him to play structures and not run the football whenever he can ?
He would be under implicit instructions to take off..but he hasnt ..doesnt..wont..

Kyle Flanagan officially signed by Roosters

You’d have to think he’s been released for reasons other than football ability, if it is all about the clubs attempt to rebrand or a makeover then do it fully, with the retirement of Gal,its tap on the shoulder time for Fifita, Dugan, Moylan, the whole sook squad..cleanse the joint give the fans a team who care as much as we do..

Kyle Flanagan officially signed by Roosters

Depends what you mean by ‘developed’ but from the squad those who come from or played junior football in the Hunter and it’s hinterland : B Jones C Watson (Erina) both Saffitis J Ramien J King L Fitzgibbon M Barnett Pasami S Phoenix C(Erina)..only Brodie hasn’t played 1st grade this year..it’s a huge misconception to believe the juniors have been ignored..

Knights, Titans and Sharks must clean up off-field mess

If Herman’s on $300k we can stop wondering why he’s been sulking..

Knights, Titans and Sharks must clean up off-field mess

There would be quite a few handsomely paid Knights starting with Pearce,Ponga,Klemmer,Glasby, Watson and Ramien of late and those on overs due to plight of circumstance SKD, Guerra, Sione M….Fitzy, Saffiti and even Barnett warrant upgrades…be very, very surprised if they’re paying Herman E. ‘ a
couple of hundred ‘ thousand…last year close to the clubs most consistent forward performer..he’s more than probably gone, coach conflict happens..with rumors of more Sharks coming there’ll be a cleanout..it’s happening at the Broncos, the Eels and most certainly sooner than later at the Dragons and Titans..just for starters..

Knights, Titans and Sharks must clean up off-field mess

They knew Johnson was solely a runner when they bought him Albo..he seemed the perfect game breaking substitute for Valentine.Trouble is, other than last week ,he rarely runs..so, the club has a half who can’t organize, won’t run, is kicking horrendously in general play and cost the club three games with lousy goal kicking…a million dollar man who gets the ball on the last play of the game last night, this is his chance, take the shot Shaun…too hard, passes the buck onto Townsend…miserable…you could rip into other big name players on the roster,
Fifita,Woods, Prior, Dugan, Moylan, the on field non rallying of Gallen..none of them leaving the field with nothing in the tank..systems need immediate auditing..

Would a merged Dragons and Sharks outfit do better against teams like the Warriors and Panthers?

I guess all they’re really asking albeit a blunt way is ‘what’s going on here ?’
Angus has gone from one of the best edge runners in the game to losing his spot in the Blues team, a huge half time coach spray,losing his right edge to Mitch Aubusson…and from an 80 min. player to last weeks abysmal 37 mins on field time, with no Cordner to contend with..
Robbo talks a better game than any coach in the NRL..but something’s out of kilt..

'Get some facts': Trent Robinson fires up over Angus Crichton questions

How do we find somebody in rugby league who can understand what’s written in front of them ?

Why all the hate for Cameron Smith?

Perhaps the most telling sign is for someone who is touted as the GOAT, and he is , but irrelevant to the question of his unlikeability, is the fact that he has never ever won an RLPA award…the most prestigious to the players …because it’s voted on exclusively by players..the press have given him 2 Dally M’s in the duration..but his peers have given him zilch..total peer neglect..there’s the only picture you need Insider..another huge leap..

Why all the hate for Cameron Smith?

Oh, it’s a momentous leap…quantum..goodness me..
