    The Game 2021 Judiciary Charges

    They all know what they're doing - don't be fooled by it being disguised as a "clumsy" tackle. I think his earlier high shot was also on jac

    Refereeing The Magic Round sin bin directive

    All this talk about suspensions - question - do players still get paid whilst suspended?

    Refereeing The Magic Round sin bin directive

    They'll need to tweak the rules for sure to maintain the spectacle - sometimes the high shots are accidents (but still worthy of a send off) but to ruin the game for all the fans and the other players for 1 mistake is too much. Losing an interchange player (is that player can't play anymore) is...

    Refereeing The Magic Round sin bin directive

    I hate the hip drop tackle... and I don't get why the nrl only protects the head but not any other body part that can potentially sideline someone or ruin someone's career. Hip drop is more deliberate imho

    2021 Magic R10 Sun - Melbourne 44-18 St Geo Illa @ Suncorp

    How many AC joint injuries have come from storm tackles lately?

    Refereeing The Magic Round sin bin directive

    I dont mind protrecting players - but they do need to tweak the rules with the increasing sin bins and penalties. 3 changes would be: 1. Bring back 5 in the bin for repeat offenders / peofessional fouls - with fatigue, 10 is too long. 10 should be for bad stuff. 2. Player comes back on after...

    Most hospitalised sport?

    Wow, feel like there is an ACL per week. Actually I just counted 9 players with season ending knee injuries - assuming they're acls. Roosters doing their best to contribute to the average

    Most hospitalised sport?

    I guess when you have a dedicated webpage called casualty ward, I'm more describing the volume of players sent to hospital vs the severity of injuries. I don't think I recall a round where not a single player was injured. It's turning into a game of injury roulette now.

    Most hospitalised sport?

    Unless you slice someone open with your blade, still don't think 1v1 punch up will necessarily lead to a hospitalisation. I think NRL would now have to be up there with being the most hospitalised sport on the planet.

    Most hospitalised sport?

    3 players taken to hospital that I counted on the weekend, so many players having season ending injuries, a webpage called casualty ward on the nrl website... is it better to simply rest your stars for the first half of the season? Are there more players hospitalised in nrl than any other...

    2021 R9 Fri - Parramatta 31-18 Sydney @ Bankwest

    This whole thing about protecting the players head from concussion doesn't extend to other body parts apparently. Free for all to twist knees and puncture someone's lung with their own broken ribs.

    2021 R8 Sat - Newcastle 4-38 Sydney @ McDonald Jones

    I just watched the injury replays... so bad. whilst the Morris one was really bad luck from the timing of the tackle, was the Collins one preventable? Looked like a hip drop to me.

    Scoring side to kick off?

    With so many blow outs with the new rule changes and increase in fatigue - I think the best rule change to implement next would be that the scoring side kicks off. Probably nothing more deflating than letting a try score to be 40-0 and then having to run another 40m just to tackle a bloke. what...

    Concussions and in-game punishments

    When we watch reruns of 70s 80s footy, you think wow how did they get away with that.. in 5-10 years time this era will be so obvious that these were dirty plays .... and of course the worst had tk have come from storm player

    Concussions and in-game punishments

    True but you gota start somewhere... eventually we will run out of body/chicken parts to name tackles after and in about 50 years, the next generations generation can actually keep the game going

    Concussions and in-game punishments

    I reckon include lawyers and doctors from each team in the bunker and if it's on report, they have 60 seconds to watch a replay and put in a guilty/not guilty plea. If they put in guilty they're off to the bin and suspended based on the grading assigned after the game. Why should they be allowed...

    Concussions and in-game punishments

    But they're not sitting out for the game they're playing... they just go back on the field whereas the opposition player is knocked out cold. I think the best way to think of it is what if that was the grand final? Sitting out for a trial or round 1 of new season doesn't even matter

    Concussions and in-game punishments

    Put em in the bunker - the kafusi one was terrible - Def got his monies worth but if they're subsequently suspended, then a penalty didn't fit the crime is all I'm saying. Ref got it wrong and hasn't been criti ised enough.
