    How stupid is Greenberg, can't he understand that after one or two games sending the players to ten in the bin as allowed by the rules would just about stop the penalties in the so called red zone. You just have to look at the punching rule, a couple of players were sent to the bin, Guess what Todd, we seldom see a punch thrown. The trouble with the game is that it rewards cheating, such as hold a player down inside the ten for too long and you may get penalised- but the attacking team can't take a quick tap and use that advantage of the penalty. (How stupid is that)

    Harsh penalties as in having someone in the bin for ten minutes will soon stop just about all of the cheating (or call it Professionalism ). The Game certainly needs to grow up and stop being nice to teams that are breaking the rules and cheating.

    Leave the rules as they are and just f*cking enforce them.

    My point was they should set a precedent of sending people off..

    If you are penalised, you lose the ability to use your dominant arm in both attack and defence for the remainder of the match. Your second penalty, you lose the ability to use your non-dominant arm as well. The third penalty results in you losing a leg and needing to hop. The fourth penalty wouldn't result in you losing the ability to use both legs- that would just be silly.

    This rule change would be quite problematic for a player like James Maloney. He not only concedes quite a few penalties, but is also his team's goal kicker.

    The ten minute sin bin is fine as it is, the problem is that referees, in particular NRL referees (I find the Super League guys are more willing to use it on average), are afraid of the players. This is one area that League needs to follow Union's examples; referees need to grow a set. Compare a ref like Nigel Owens who will politely tell players to shut the f**k up or eagerly bin them for deliberate penalties and compare it to someone like Cecchin, Sutton or Perenara who sit there and take abuse, or make vague piss weak threats like "Mate that's been five penalties, pretty soon I'm going to start thinking about punishing you but probably not, but maybe". The NRL needs to stop with adding extra layers of rules and just tell the referees "if a player deliberately slows the play of the ball, or deliberately knocks down a pass they get the bin".

    In my mind - 10 mins way too long in this era of footy. They should do based on number of sets and once you score, you can come back on for professional fouls. I do find it odd that you can stay on for a high shot and just put on report for next week and take a bloke out for the game.

    Apparently there was 40 sin bins this year up from 20 or so last year.

    Greenberg really is losing the plot, simply bring back the 5 mins in the Sin Bin.
    No need to add new rules.

    Definitely more than a hint of Monty Python there.

    But bringing back the 5min sin bin is introducing a new rule ;).....but I think most would be happy to see some sort of sin bin (either 5 or 10) to be used in this situation.

    Absolutely. They need to start sending blokes to the bin for talking to the refs the way they do.

    Probably the easiest way to stop the scourge is on any successful (or unsuccessful) penalty kick the game is restarted with a try line drop out rather than a kick off.

    Kind of makes me think the referees will become gunshy in calling penalties in that area. So the defensive team may be able to get away with even more.
