    Wasting time you with him, he still thinks Melbourne were hard done by after systematically rorting the cap.

    I’m a Storm fan, yes Billy should have been rubbed out because it WAS a shoulder charge. But we all knew he’d fight it & get off. Anyone trying to say it wasn’t shoulder charge is either dillusional or simply a one eyed supporter.

    Open your eyes mate, Trying to say it was a legal tackle is stupid. As blatant as you’ll ever see.

    If the rules were worded differently then sure, but with the rule how it currently is by the NRLs definition it’s not a shoulder charge.

    You’re the only fan that I’ve seen that disagrees it was a shoulder charge lol. Everyone went “oh f**k, he’s gone”

    If he’s clearly guilty then why was he found not guilty at the judiciary? And please come up with something better then “the judiciary ignored the rules”

    Well it’s all about applying the rules consistently. If Tedesco does a cover shoulder “bump” on someone like slater and as long as there no penalty then it will be fine.

    What everyone really is uncomfortable with is that there is a rule for one and not another (slater has been protected his entire career for some reason) and if there should be different penalties for finals.

    Even OJ got off mate.

    I’m glad he’s playing cause I thought it was a good hit and not the sort of tackle the shoulder charge rule was intended for but f**k me he comes in with his arm tucked by his side and hits him with his shoulder, pretty clear cut to me.

    I’ve seen poor blokes cop a few weeks for a lot less over the years where they were coming in for a tackle and either the attacker steps in on an awkward line or passes to someone else coming on an unexpected line and the poor defender tucks his arm in bracing for a collision at a different angle he was expecting and then he’s rubbed out for it, I really expected Billy to be sitting out this week.

    So in other words, you got nothing. Ok let me explain again why he got off. For it to be a shoulder charge there must be no use of or attempted use of the arms. It’s been well documented here multiple times that Slaters arm are involved in the tackle. Therefore it cannot be a shoulder charge. It’s a technicality sure but that’s just how it is. It’s similar situation to both the Jack Whighton tackle and the Mick Ennis one, a technicality in the way the rule is written means that technically it wasn’t a shoulder charge. It will stay that way until the rule is changed. Have a nice day

    The judiciary ignored the rules.

    That is exactly what happened.

    Do you believe any other player qould have got off?
