    Take betting out of the game,and that ridiculous bunker,and things will improve out of site.

    And if he is retiring,I think it best that it is immediate. Every ruling he makes from now will be amplified and scrutinized like crazy.

    I like the first comment on the reddit post:

    “Gettem onside”, “doin it all day sir” and “send him off” are culturally protected terms and as such sit outside of these guidelines.

    Media need to not worry about referees, it only fires up the uneducated.

    NRL refs have about a 98% accuracy when it comes to decisions across a season. How does this compare to teams completion rates at the end of the year? An incomplete set is an error.

    Hopefully Checchin's decision will have a positive result but I think people will forget about it quickly because it's engrained in the culture to blame a referee

    You’ve got to be a massive basement dwelling piece of utter shit to threaten a ref and his family.

    They way it is, is why I came here. Too many soft cocks downvoting people professing their love for Vonny being the main one.

    I LOVE YOU VONNY!

    After watching an interview with him just now it seems he's more unhappy with the ways referees are being managed than any fan abuse.

    Fan abuse is the NRL’s way of softening the exit.

    Referees get little to no respect on the field. Until that changes, I can’t see it improving.

    I’m okay with human error. I’m not okay with players crowding referees, badgering in their ears or talking back.

    Oh and stop calling players by their names during general play.

    I prefer it when referees call out the number. Address the player and get on with it.

    I’d support that rule at LU. The abuse they cop is ridiculous.

    This. It isnt the individual ref, it is the policy and control imposed on them by the buffoons in charge at nrl hq.
