Hahahah.
Although I don’t agree with some aspects of this, I certainly found it very entertaining. Thanks for reading it.

The problem might be you, not six again

Yep. That makes a lot of taking the time to read it.

That’s very nice of you mate. Thanks!

Thanks Andrew, that’s very kind. You raised some good points in your response too mate.

Thanks for the feedback Greg. I appreciate it.

I really enjoyed this mate, which I am sure I was not suppose to. I think I tentatively agree, risking 1000 evil responses.
I think the commercial value at Bank West is too high currently. I agree that basing the majority of games from there is the best option, and then doing a once a year game at LO.
In a perfect commercial word, where we don’t have to rely on ANZ or BankWest, then your suggestion is great. Heavily investing in that region, while still paying homage to the past.

Thanks mate. I appreciate the time you took to read it and comment on it. Great to meet someone else who comes on here with an open-mind, happy to learn something.

Thanks KK. That is very kind of you.

Thanks for taking the time to read it Adam, and for your polite and considered response.

Thanks for the kind words Nathan. Also wonderful to meet someone who is polite and respectful, even while disagreeing. Thanks again.

The course is free, and so transparent if you are welling to put in an hour or so of work. Pretty fair from my perspective.

All of these terms are collectively created with coaches and the NRL, as well as referees. These are not new, they just may not be known by fans. Players, coaches, trainers, etc all know about them.

Thanks Ken. I appreciate the kinds words.

100%!
The other night a player lost their legs. The referee called it. The Storm players were on the tackled player for a fraction longer than a normal time (which is legal), and the commentator blew up. Storm do a lot of great work with referees during the week, and it often pays off on game day.

This is great mate. Thanks for commenting. I would suggest all penalties are more frequently in the first half. Referees and players often feel each other out, find each others timing, see what the referee will accept and what they won’t, during the first half.
This may be an indicator of that?

Thanks for taking the time to read this mate, and provide a thorough response. I can assure you that all clubs have referees on the books. No, not in the “you paid the ref for the win”. They all have a retired ref, like Sean Hamstead with Parra, that does a session with them weekly. Players and clubs are not just aware of these terms, coaches are part of the body creating them. Its a share language. This is not sprung on them during the game.

Thanks for reading mate. Yep, that is a good point.

I’d watch it.

Great point.

Yeah that might be true. I think I know that how you get in each year is done in such a way that it encourages new teams to enter. Everyone’s main goal is development, even before winning. That’s the impression I’ve been given.

Thanks for the kind words Pickett, and thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

Thanks mate.

Yeah I think it will. And so do the coaches and players…
“We can’t wait to train and with and play with draft players,” says coach Lahr, barely containing his excitement.

“We would like to make some training sessions open for all Czech clubs. I believe the draft players will give us lot of experience. We don’t want only Vrchlabí to benefit from this opportunity, we want all of the Czech RL to benefit”.

What makes you think it wouldn’t sir?
