    The continued adversity they face is nearing Broncos levels.

    Maria softgreaves choking Ponga on the ground and staring at the ref begging to be penalised was a real hoot.

    It makes our success over the last decade or so that much sweeter considering we get no favours from the refs year after year after year. Where we ranked on penalties for
    2019 - 15th
    2018 - 14th
    2017 - 16th
    2016 - 12th
    2015 - 13th
    2014 - 16th
    2013 - 15th
    2012 - 7th
    2011 - 6th
    2010 - 16th
    2009 - 16th
    2008 - 16th
    Thankfully our success doesn’t rely on souffs 2014 level leg ups.

    Great question. It’s a combination of identifying and developing young talent disregarded/rejected by other clubs, recruitment of key marquee players and having arguably the best coaching team in the comp. these factors negate the impact of the obvious bias against the club. Yes, amazing.

    That's what happens when you have morons like Jake Friend and JWH in your team.

    Why? What do they have to do with how many penalties opposition teams give away. This is for penalties we received.

    Just like Broncos fans, Roosters fans maintain the delusional that a penalty count is the only way referees can influence a match, and ignore the other 75% of the officiating.

    Exactly where did anyone say that? It’s easy to generalise and just blurt our other 75%. Elaborate. Where exactly do we get an advantage if penalty counts are irrelevant. It’s definitely not the video ref, it’s not penalties conceded because we get no favours there year after year.

    How do you explain Klemmer being binned, whilst the protected species Maria Hargreaves is putting players in chokeholds?

    The Roosters are the kings of the leg up.

    So 1 call is your evidence of 75% leg ups to us despite but overwhelming penalty stats mean zero lol. And no other team gets those kinds of calls?

    Yes because every single little f**k up by the referees is a sign of intentional bias

    Souths aren’t even involved in the conversation and you have to bring them up because you’re so obsessed with us. #foreverinourshadow.

    Feel free to bring some stats to the table of the other 75% of officiating.

    Perhaps you can start with the amount of opposition tries sent to video ref :joy:
