    Can you see it? Said how good it was for the ruck to be cleaned up so he can ply his trade. Who has spoiled the ruck by stretching the patience of the refs interpretations?

    What is with that chunk of bum-fluff perched on the top of his head? Looks like a cat has farted a fur-ball on there.

    I agree with Poor Cam, it's disgraceful how the NRL have allowed this awful wrestling to go on for so long and stop poor Cam from developing and playing his natural game. It's held him back so badly, shame on you NRL.

    Bellamy now putting pressure on the refs by whinging that he can’t see what his team is doing differently to others in regards to the tackle resets.
    This is going to come down to a showdown between Bellamy and the refs.
    Hopefully the refs hold their nerve, although they look to be crumbling already.

    agree , if anything the media should have reported it as DISGRACEFUL pressure from Bellamy. If refs explain the 6 again him and his merry mean of cheating scumbags will just slow down the game again .

    stats don’t tell lies, knights slowed the play the ball yet storm was getting pinged. Storm has consistently produced slower play the balls than there opponents and are consistently pinged more for slowing the ruck

    stats actually lie.they don’t show the cause of the play the ball or even take into account what the speed was 1st half v 2nd half when teams start to tire . Also they don’t tell you

    - How dominant (Hard) the tackles by each side
    - how often was one side tackles with back in ground .
    - what was comparison of of 1v1 tackles compared to 2/3 man tackles by each side
    - how energetic and quick was the tackled player in trying to play the ball
    - when one team was slowing th play the ball did it appear inentional or more from tiredness versus the other one using wrestling tactics


    I’ve watched every game so far and all Melbourne games have been the pita . Melbourne have been lucky not to have multiple sin bins against them, they are continuing the wrestle and give away cynical penalties in red zone .

    Not disagreeing or agreeing with the PTB argument, more just wanting to point out that stats CAN be used to spread falsities and lies. People have been doing it for centuries.

    So salty.

    Just sit back, crack a beer and appreciate the greatest of Cam Smith. This is the best footballer that's ever laced a boot.

    Second best. Both Qlders but it comes down to how they ended their rep careers. One would have died for the jersey.

    Cam Smith is so good he had a testimonial match and lunches 10 years prior to his retirement in 2028.
