i think the future of the NRL is in serious trouble, especially in Sydney. The crowds are diabolical. They seriously had to have counted everyone twice to get a total of 20000 and the Roosters game the other night and the 15000 they got at Manly/ Penrith was a terrible look for the game. The Sharks/ Cowboys game this arvo looks like another disaster, why its not being played at Shark Park in front of 20000 rabid Sharks fans is beyond me. But let's talk about referees. The Storm game went the way we all expected with the Storm getting every call all game. But the performance in the Manly/ Penrith game took the cake. Manly denied a perfectly legitimate try for an offside only the bunker could see and if Peachys try wasn't a knock on since 1908 I dunno what is. Players, coaches and fans have been saying all year the referees should not have to guess weather it's a try or not and simply send it upstairs with an "I have no idea" call. But has the NRL done anything about such a simple fix to the laws of the game? Of course not, cause there appears to be no one running the game, despite the much vaunted "commission" being hailed as the savior of the game. I often wonder if the plan isn't to let the crowds get as low as possible to justify moving teams, I know who's first on the chopping block.
