Absolutely mate

There’s nothing wrong with being one eyed and loyal and we all fall into it

I’ve been having a bit of fun with it but I get where you’re coming from…

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

I’d love to… 😛

I’ve never said the MRC gets everything right

You’re saying that the MRC AND everyone else is wrong that Mitchell elbowed Nofo in the head

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Anything’s possible…

Souths fan and former Souths player have it right…

I guess that means these guys who all described it as an elbow need to go to specsavers?

…and that photo of Mitchell’s elbow in Nofo’s face must need specsavers too…

Sorry Jethro – read Big Migs comment above. It wasn’t an elbow

You need to get to specsavers too

“low energy shot” that’s a new one 😂

Yes your honour, I hit him in the head, but it was a low energy shot…

I like it…

I watched the video before making the comment above

I still see it (and maybe thru one eye) as Hetherington being wrong footed. Holmes put a massive step on Thompson and Hetherington. Thompson was flat footed and didn’t get close but Hetherington was a bit further away and had time to react

Just before impact Hetherington’s momentum is going completely across Holmes and is why he threw the arm out

The commentators at the time called it a coat hanger and not a swinging arm. The coat hanger tends to be more of a reactionary tackle than a premeditated one

Anyway it is what it is. I’m comfortable with Hetherington’s suspension. Not so much with Radley getting zero weeks. It was still high contact

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Ok sure…

I’ve got it wrong, Mary’s got it wrong, the MRC has it wrong, the judiciary has it wrong and every other fan on here has it wrong and we all need to go to specsavers or…

You’re a biased, loyal, one eyed fan who’s struggling to accept the reality of the situation

I honestly don’t know what to believe…

AFB is a very good player but he’s nowhere near Latrell in terms of profile and public interest (good and bad)

It wasn’t Mitchell creating all the hype and writing dozens of articles a day, seven days a week

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

He got four, Momirovski got three, Hetherington got five

The suspension wasn’t over the top at all. He elbowed someone in the face – for no reason and he kicked someone else in the face

The headline and the content of the article are completely fair based solely on Walker and Mitchell’s behaviour

They don’t carry on like pork chops and there’s no article…

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

I don’t think we’d all agree on who the w#nker is…

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Bias alert – but I disagree about the degree of difference in the Radley and Hetherington tackles

Hetherington was flying through on Holmes to put a shot on, same as Radley. Holmes stepped him and Hetherington threw out his arm and caught Holmes high

Both Hetherington’s feet were off the ground at impact (like Radley) and his momentum was going to his right, while Holmes was going in the opposite direction. His arm was thrown out in the classic off balance coat hanger – there wasn’t a swinging arm at all. No way was that a “fully in control”

It seems a big part of Radley’s defence was the Storm saying there was nothing in it and Munster only came off to game the interchange rule

Holmes and the Cowboys did the same thing minus the public support

Hetherington’s tackle was worse than Radley’s and with his record and loading absolutely deserved a longer suspension, but the two tackles were not a million miles apart…

Mary – as a bulldogs fan I look forward to your article about how Hetherington’s lack of discipline will cost him a shot at the Dally M, a blues jersey and the Bulldogs a potential premiership

It will be the best news I’ve had all season… 😂 😂

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Mitchell and Walker are talented and exciting but they’re also showing they’re reckless and impulsive

So journos can only write stories about how talented and exciting they are…?

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Waaaaaaaaaaay over sensitive

I’m as big a fan of Latrell as a non Souths fan can be but Mitchell’s (and Walker’s) recent acts on the field have been largely pointless. Neither them nor Souths gained anything by their petty lashing out

With AJ at fullback, Gagai on the wing and Marsters in the centres, Mitchell has weakened Souths in three positions for a month

Do you think it’s in Mitchell’s and Souths best interests to cut that nonsense out of his game?

If your answer is yes, then you agree with the point Mary is making in this article

Saying no is so utterly clueless as to not warrant further discussion…

Take the dominant player out of most teams and they’re buggered

I’m not sure about the Panthers forwards. I think they were a bit flat and maybe complacent against the Broncos. I don’t think JFH, Yeo, Kikau, Martin, Leota, Leinu will be regularly “out-aggressed” – I guess we’ll see

The Penrith Panthers will win the 2021 NRL premiership

That’s my problem with the suspensions

I can live with Hetherington, Latrell and Momorovski getting 5,4,3 weeks but I’ll bet London to a brick that’s not the standard moving forward

Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to clean up their games

Yep – they got Kaufusi wrong, that doesn’t mean it becomes the standard

I think they’re looking red hot right now, but as others have noted there’s a lot of water to pass under the bridge yet

Injuries look like they’ll play a bigger role than ever before and the Panthers have had a charmed run for two years. It’s funny saying a team missing their 1 and 9 for extended periods has been “lucky” but a lot of teams are carrying 6-8 players out at any one time

I like how they can shift gears. They’ve got a tough pack that can go toe to toe in the middle, but there’s also some skill there. Then they can turn on the razzle dazzle

Cleary’s arguably the best game controlling half in the NRL and Luai one of the best eyes up halves

* Radley was sinbinned

A plea to coaches: Stop rorting the HIA system

I don’t blame a player for accepting the money

It’s fair enough to blame them when they’re not putting in

Are the Dogs now the elephant in the room?

Yeah – he’s been a good club man in tough times. There have been lots of times over the past five years when he’s been the standout player… but it looks like the game has moved past him

Are the Dogs now the elephant in the room?

Radley hit Munster high, so why shouldn’t the Storm get an extra leg up

Because the intent of the rule is that Melbourne aren’t disadvantaged when Munster has to go off and get treated for an injury. It’s not there to give the Storm a leg up and a free interchange to replace a player who wasn’t even involved

Munster wasn’t injured and as you say they got their leg up when Radley was suspended

The Storm aren’t the only team doing it and to be fair they’ve legally exploited a loophole in the rules. That doesn’t mean the loophole shouldn’t be closed

A plea to coaches: Stop rorting the HIA system

Concussion is caused by the brain moving inside your skull and banging against the bone

Please tell me how wearing a helmet prevents your brain from moving inside your skull

This is pretty common knowledge bud

Good to see you’re willing to double down on dopey comments…
