We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

I still like Tim Gore’s idea of a 3 point penalty kick for any penalty conceded inside the 20.

Also – spruiking my idea, of 15 demerit points per penalty, and every 100 points accrued is an automatic week suspension. A second penalty in a match is 30, and all subsequent penalties in the match are 40.

It would have meant Sam Burgess would have been suspended a week + carry over change over his blatantly poor sportsmanship against the Raiders.

Two simple ways to solve the NRL’s creeping penalty trend

Andrew Johns I’m fairly sure was conceived purely on ‘the flow’ judging by how much he talks about it.

And adding into the mix the Tigers appear to be doing a lot better under Madge than Cleary too.

Is Ivan Cleary actually a good coach?

A lot of pressures on the bowlers there.

Australia would need to win the toss and bowl first. That batting line up couldn’t chase a 340+ score.

England are either gonna get 400 or 150. Australia would need to hope for 150 with that batting line up.

Not criticising your selections, David. There’s scarce sustained hitting power in the squad.

What will be Australia's first choice Cricket World Cup lineup?

I want to see the game move towards season long management of fair play, similar to what football does.

The NRL already has a demerit based system when it comes to suspensions, why not widen this to all penalties in a game. 15 points per penalty. If you are penalised twice in a game, 30 points for the second penalty. Sin-bins are 50.

And for every 100 points accrued, it’s a mandatory one week suspension (just like how 3 yellow cards in football is a one week suspension).

And these are added onto a players existing carry over for reportable offences.

It would naturally drastically reduce penalties. Particularly those players who are already sitting on 60-70 carry over points.

Spare us this 'emerging trend' rubbish, Annesley. Deliberate cheating is entrenched

Nor I to read it.

Tim, I do believe you missed your calling as chief hydrological AND hydrodynamical engineer.

Either way – a fab article, and (as usual) right on point.

However, while refs are not given the appropriate support that they deserve by the game’s administrators (who instead allow Phil Gould and Andrew Johns to attack them at every opportunity) this isn’t going to change.

A really, really good idea.

But…but…what about the “flow”?

Good work Phil Gould.

Sows the field, then puts WAY too much roundup on the crop, lights a match and walks away.

it’s the vibe of it Gray-Hand.

A letter to Alan Jones on the matter of Israel Folau

You know, Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for about 27-28 years, roughly from age 44 to about 72. On being released, he decided there was no point spending his life intoxicated with thoughts of revenge.

Quite right.

But it’s worth reading up on the ANC post-apartheid/post-1994 elections. Mandela may not personally have held a grudge, but he didn’t exactly go to measures to stop others from exercising revenge either.

He was always strangely quiet on it.

I digress…

But one thing I can add, is that speech which should be repressed, is anything from extremists, be they religious, political, or whatever. It’s the extremists, or fundamentalists, or ideologues, who are the problem of the world.

Hear hear.

The problem is, Folau has quite obviously been ‘descending’ down the path of fundamentalism, extremism and hard ideology.

The post may only be the beginning of something much worse, and it’s why it’s better to cut it off at the pass.

Fred Nile started out with this type of stuff, then he descended into absolute buffoonery by holding public “pray for rain” sessions on Mardi Gras day.

Qantas mourns your loss. That Jetstar flight to the gold Coast will be particularly noticing your absence

@tander

I’m ignoring you on account of your rank homophobic comments on other articles.

You’re about as worth while to our nation and dog poo. The latter at least fertilizes lawn

Dude,

Inserting a philosopher into a post doesn’t make you smart.

Who Qantas aligns itself with internationally is utterly irrelevant to this issue.

Someone is a sore loser.

I don’t give a toss what religion you are. Enforce it on me, then we have a problem.

That is true.

Way too many knocks on the head.

He’s also taking far too much advice from his father…who is suspect is pushing him down this path.

The miracle would be him successfully overturning this.

He has no chance.

A pretty clear breach of the contract and so any court or commission will hold.

Hold up – women can vote? That means they are allowed out of the kitchen?

But those black people…they are still ‘fauna’ right? We haven’t changed that yet, right?

So true Ruckin…bigotry is as timeless as a Ming vase.

Hey….cancelling those Virgin flights then, pal?

Folau fired: Rugby Australia axe Israel

Anon has been absolutely silent since he learned Virgin is UAE owned.

He’s now thinking how he can live without his car.

And soon, he’ll be thinking how he can sustain his retirement without middle east investments.

Suck it up, then.

This has nothing to do with free speech.

Will Raelene Castle survive the Folau scandal?

You can choose not to do the other things.

How can you still not get this?

Lol – now your telling us you have a companion.
