    You won't find any argument from me about the stupidity of the shoulder charge rule.

    I'm just saying that your post was factually incorrect.

    Yes they ignored the rules so that he would play. Do you believe any other player from either side would have got off besides smith? If you can't see what is wrong with that then i can't help you.

    Jake received 75 points as punishment for his tackle so he didn't get off. If you believe that his tackle shouldn't be less of a punishment than Billy's that is all well and good but those are the current rules and it isn't up to the judiciary to circumvent or straight up ignore them.

    I'm sure Blake Ferguson would have received the same sympathy :D

    Given Bellew's directives, the panel basically gave both he and the NRL judicial process a big F**k you.

    None of them should ever sit on a tribunal again.

    They freed Billy. But the price was their integrity.

    So much melting. Slater tackled Feki from the side in a try saving tackle. It wasn’t a shoulder charge.

    You and the 24 other muppets who liked this opening post should be banned for showing poor judgment. Anyone with half a brain knew that Slater was going to get off. NFI the lot of you clowns.

    what I find very confusing to say the least is that the judiciary, in their attempt to explain why he was not guilty, said he actually tried to put his arms around Feki

    as many times as I have seen the replay, I just cant see that at all

    But what flavour of lunatic are you?

    Everyone knew he was going to get off, but not for the same reason you think he got off.

    Nailed it.... you would have to be missing half a brain to think that Slater was not guilty of a shoulder charge.

    You should be boycotting the GF on Sunday. Everyone who doesn’t support these two teams should. The refs suddenly turn a blind eye at finals time to offside and Melbourne’s WWE and they look unbeatable.
    The Rorters were offside all game against Souffs and everyone was praising their rush defence. Why does the game change every year at finals time due to the referees?

    Yes. He plead guilty to a charge that should’ve had Slater’s 200 points minimum.

    It is right result but wrong reason. If first contact was with right arm then left pec it is not a shoulder charge. No way in hell did he have any intention of wrapping his arms around it was always a bump/shove/charge

    Maybe. But he definitely plead guilty. And he definitely didn't "get off".

    I thought the left pec ruling was the judiciary's view. But not sure.

    It is absolute crap. Who aims to hit someone with their pec? It was inside of the shoulder.

    Maybe the future rule change will be inside of the shoulder fine, outside bad.

    The whole idea of 3 players on the judiciary panel is a joke. Even without challenging their integrity, three dumb arse footballers have had their pants pulled down by a slick lawyer, or taking it to the extreme they didn't get pantsed, but let the player emotion over ride what should have been a 15 minute hearing with a guilty outcome. How about a panel of 1 player, 1 ref, and 1 other tba who isn't a dumb f**k and has the nouse to not be bullied or outwitted over a technicality by a professional lawyer.

    This would be why the nrl use a professional prosecutor isnt it, to have a fair trial? Who is to say the outcome would be any different regardless of the judiciary.
