    Oh ffs! It's been suggested by another person here before. You kick the ball, if it touches the try line or beyond, it's a tap on the 20.

    How about none? Can we just stop messing with the game. There are plenty of things that could be better but the NRL have a habit of making changes trying to make the game better only to have them blow up. Besides the 40-20 and the change around corner posts, few have had a really positive impact on the game.

    Yes: I would be okay with field goals being worth as much as conversions (ie 1 point) because I think conversions are extremely boring and 1 on none sucks.
    No: don't raise tries to 5 points instead of the 3 point conversion I have suggested. My idea of 7 on 7 for 3 points would be very exciting to watch. That is what the game needs. More excitement.

    Nothing too serious but I think the coaches should be able to do a coaches call similar to the NFL. Refs regularly get things wrong and it's cost many teams this year.

    I’d go even further and say simplify the current rules even more. I’ve played and watched the game for 40 years, and am mystified as to what constitutes a ruck penalty these days. Seemingly identical tackles are randomly penalised, and seemingly obvious penalties are let go purely at the referees discretion... and this is allowing referees FAR too much influence on the game and the momentum of teams..

    Compounding this is the way they are then able to put this down to “discipline”, and happily blame the players, when in fact both teams are “guilty”. What I’m getting at is that they essentially victim blame, when both teams are either right or wrong at the same time, according to their very loose interpretations..

    The referee is God, when he/she crosses the white line divine power comes upon them, they are always right, especially when they're wrong.

    Half the suggested rule changes here are about reversing the f**kwit changes the NRL made in the first place like 7 tackles, golden point and 2 refs.

    Don't disagree at all. But you just know the NRL will find a way to make things worse.

    The problem, in this case, is that “God” answers to one Todd Greenberg..

    Its amazing isn't it?

    For years, the morons have been screaming "clean up the ruck" and "get em onside"...... so they tried to and the morons whinged "there's too many penalties, I came to watch footy, not referees"

    f**k me dead.

    Most of the suggested rule changes are about reversing the influence Bellamy has had on the game.

    This is the dumbest f**king idea... Like, I don’t even know where to begin with describing the amount of utter stupidity in it. *Slow Clap* Well done if you’re actually trying to come across as a complete and utter drop kick

    Not much different to now, my suggestion. This would help the GB Lions.

    Reduce interchange numbers and get rid of rolling substitutions. Once you've done your stint and are replaced, you don't come back on.
