Nothing wrong with 10 or the old 5 in the bin. Complicating something unnecessarily.
20 posts and no mention of Topball? what has happened to this place
Here's an idea, no country is allowed to change the rules of the game without international ratification and adoption by all countries!
Sounds like the shoulder charge rule, bring it in then have trouble working out what constitutes a shoulder charge, despite already having a rule that makes it illegal to attack the head of a player, the only rule that was needed.
Sounds silly. Just send a player for 5 mins on the 3rd penalty in a row or give the attacking team a 7 tackle set with a zero tackle like with a knock on.
because they don't want to ruin the contest for tv and there is a perception that 10 minutes will do
ongoing niggling fouls are perfect for 5 minute bins, you reduce the impact of a subjective decision
The perception is wrong.
Does anyone here actually think a sin bin or send off *ruins* a game?
If anything it ups the drama
think you're not thinking it through correctly, would you be happy if boyd cordner/jake friend got sent to the bin for 10 because of a 3rd penalty in the redzone?
Don't like the idea. Just need to apply the rules we already have. Before I was a fan of bringing back thet 5 minute bin, but now I think they should just keep the 10. Having two different bins opens up a whole new issue with what deserves 5 minutes, what deserves 10 etc.
Of course I wouldn't be happy.
I'm not happy when Friend and JWH get penalised 19 times a game either but they shouldn't change the rule because I've got the shits.
Sin bins are for professional fouls.
Professional fouls effectively means cheating/deliberate penalties, especially in try scoring situations.
Giving away repeated penalties to slow the game down i try scoring range definitely qualifies.
Draw a line in the sand from the first trial game so players, coaches and fans know what to expect.
AND this is the important part... ACTUALLY STICK TO IT FOR THE WHOLE SEASON
If they want to try something, why not have the ref call penalty advantage, and let the attacking team be able to throw the ball around without risk of losing possession for one tackle, - so if they drop it, or it gets intercepted or they knock it on, the only thing that happens is the penalty is awarded where the infringement occurred, and the attacking team can then take a tap, penalty goal etc.
The NRL can have its own rules.
Just put any rule change to a $122 million plebiscite/referendum or whatever it is.
It is a solid idea. There are potential advertisement opportunities such as the Bundy Rum time out zone. Or maybe the Kit Kat time out zone or just Kit Kat Zone or KKZ ("need a break, need a Kit Kat").
Maybe all sin bins should be spent behind the goal posts in the KKZ. Let the crowd taunt the offender for ten minutes. It would be cool to force the player the watch from the KKZ. Some bad call goes against his team and the camera pans to this big dope foaming at the mouth getting angrier and angrier as the opposition fans taunt him. It would also still be 13 on 13.
Maybe they can stay on and just be forced to stay on the wing wearing a McDonald's hat ?
haha, but you wouldn't call it the wing position you'd call it the gherkin.
And if you lost the match the coach in the presser could say, we really copped the gherkin dry today ?
5 minute sin bin for the 2nd penalty in a row would be better then this shit.
Just make a penalty inside the 20 worth 4 points if you are trying to stop them.
Then it's black and white, not open to interpretation
Couldn't disagree more strongly.
For example if someone avoids a send off for a high shot early in the season, that precedent shouldn't be continued.
what a shit idea
