    Huh? I don't think I've ever made a comment about Griffin. I may have mentioned Gould a few times but only as a commentator and I certainly don't go out of my way to comment on the Panthers, they're one of the few clubs I don't mind. You may be mistaking me with someone else?

    But they are fine for competition rounds

    In finals you use extra time as they do now

    But if still drawn after 20 min of extra time rather than a replay midweek I advocate the winner be awarded to the team who was placed higher on the competition table

    Thats how they solved the problem in the 1910 drawn premiership final

    I'd be happy with limited extra time (5 each way) for all matches:
    - 90 minute result stands during regular season whether a win or a draw.
    - At 90 minutes play resets via a third extra time kickoff and its golden point from then on

    I'm like Wayne Bennett. I only like it if I win. I cry like a crusty old poof if I lose.

    Oh it’s hilarious when your team wins .

    Last week I walked off to the toilet at the start of golden point.
    I nearly got hit with the ball as it sailed over the post .

    That was not hilarious in the slightest.

    I think a change in that a golden try only then stops it. If a field goal is scored the remaining time/the other team has the chance reply via a field goal too. If at the end of 10 mins extra time ( ie without a golden try) then a draw is called. BUT BUT when a winner in extra time (golden try) that team gets.... One and half premiership points while the losing golden try teams gets half a point. This means 2 premiership points were allocated/won. This gives the losing side a small reward/winning side a reward BUT not two points. This will play out on the table better when the final eight is finalized. The one and a half point and half point shows the true nature of the game ie it was very close, the winning side does not deserve the FULL two points.
    Also with having half points opens up interesting ideas of say, a nines comp (3 rounds) with the winner getting 2 points R/U getting 1 point and semi finalist half point each which will make for true style competition..

    Gold Coast deserved 1pt today and if Penrith got the other point then Gould would’ve looked much more like a dick
