    If you're going to allow the tackle count to manipulated on field, you might as well abolish it entirely and revert to union. The tackle count is part of what makes League so much faster and emphasises creativity on the field, if a team can have unlimited tackles just by passing then you're going to see teams get in front on points and just keep resetting the count to waste time.

    I've often been intrigued by the idea of multiball, similar to a pinball machine. I'm not sure yet what would activate multiball mode, but those sort of minor details are irrelevant when the idea is a winner.

    All I am suggesting is as a reward for taking the risk of keeping the ball alive and moving it around a bit you retain the tackle not that the tackle count restarts.

    To be fair, this idea suggests that he got drunk on Tuesday, and was still drunk at midday Wednesday.

    I get intoxicated by my passion for the potential of this great, but sick game. The game has shitcoacharistis.

    Very true! I would regularly watch the Broncos team of the early to mid-ninties play and they would quite often spread the ball in their own half and it would quite often end poorly for the defensive team with Renouf running the length of the field. It is very different these days.

    I like this but only if the pass ends being caught by the Apex

    I think when a possible try is scored rather than have The Bunker three judges should critique the try's entertainment value and also take into account any post-try celebration, with their final score being awarded on the board. Not grounding the ball will cost you some judges points but provided its entertaining enough you'll still tick over the scoreboard.

    American Idol rates its tits off so its the logical way to go. The people who watch it aren't League fans but that's exactly who we need to aim to please.

    I don't know what that is, sorry.

    Gonna take a stab that you're referring to 3 or 4 that all did an arm strapping sort of thing after scoring?

    I googled 'fortnite' but am still none the wiser.

    Ya just know Duges and Fergo come up with that after a few Breezers.

    This idea of mine seems to be positively received by the LU community so it probably needs a name for the commentators and the stats sheet and then I'll pitch it to the powers that be.

    In terms of a name...what do people think of a "4play"?

    Yeah, if mocking you and telling you to lay off the drugs is positive then sure, hard to argue with logic like that

    Yet somehow 337 points were scored last week. What does 'working' look like? Do we really want games that are 64-48 scorelines?

    Bitterly disappointed there's not been a mention of topball yet.
