    LU once again pretending that no player in history has ever successfully fought a MRC charge.

    So much salt

    Any TRUE RL fan would want to see the best players play in the GF, especially a legend like Billy. Shame on you RL haters out there who wanted to see him banned.

    Judging by your posts you don’t come across as a true fan. And people want to see integrity in the system and consistency.

    NRL already took down the clip.

    This was a 2-week suspension in Round 11.

    I was happy to see common sense prevail and the legend that is FB GOAT Billy Slater allowed to play, ergo I am a true fan.

    Went to the fan fest today and Billy was being nearly sucked off by Roosters fans - everyone wanted photos and all. Make up your minds!

    They want photos of him before his face is rearranged by Napa’s pec on Sunday.

    Sigh. Do the Storm have a single well-balanced, knowledgeable league fan amongst their ranks? To me it feels like Molly Meldrum's dogs are the closest they'd get.

    I wasn't going to watch the GF (not because of any of this silly boycott stuff, it doesn't tee off until 10.30pm NZ time) but now I will in the sincere hope something like 2008 happens again and Billy & co have a grand old sook.

    How can I break this gently - Slater is playing, no amount of panty twisting will change that.

    You can want to see the best players play and the rules enforced at the same time.

    If the best rule thensleves ineligible by their own actions it shouldn't be up to the judiciary to give them a sympathy vote to play.

    Lies such as the one in bold undermine the credibility of your whole story.

    TO be pedantic they deemed it not a shoulder charge so no need to enforce a rule as none was broken. Did they find excuses to say it wasn't a shoulder charge? Probably. Are the judiciary inconsistent? Of course they are. Is the match ban regardless of shoulder charge impact ridiculous? Sure is. All round everyones a winner, except the Roosters who have to face the GOAT FB but they got Friend off so all is fair in love and GF's.

    Friend didn't get off. He plead guilty.

    to a minimum charge when the charge could and arguably should have been more severe. That's the farce, which one of the two tackles is most likely to cause serious injury? Yet one is an instant one match ban and one isnt. Hopefully this makes the NRL realise its got its loading of severity wrong.
