    One player never gets sin binned, both always go. Mark Gasnier is a deadshit but he had a point, get a bench forward to punch the opposition halfback, you’ll lose them both for 10 minutes.

    Referees are too gutless to just bin one or send one off

    i’ve said the same thing in here a few times. Get your bench forward to sit one on the opposition stars jaw and let the good times roll.

    Saifiti is well entitled to throw one at a merkin who just head butted him, the rules are f**king pathetic.

    The sin bin didn't stop players punching on in the ol days.

    Because if you punch back you go as well.

    A Smart one, or one thats already on the ground. Its happened a few times, even once in origin.
    Its just rare.
    I didnt want the sin bin rule to begin with, but this is the rule sadly.

    Oh has it? I must have been remembering the 80's 90's and early 2000's differently when there were punches throw and there was no sin bins.

    The enforcing of the rule was used with some discretion in the past. There was sin binning all the time due to fighting in the previous years.

    shit like this

    I didn’t see that. He was holding players back and copped a punch and a head butt himself though.

    Alot of people didnt see it, but the replay showed him reaching over and punching after Sam came rushing in with his head and fists. The bunker did however.

    Apparently. I’m not saying it didn’t happen because they really only showed the footage like twice. The bunker saying something happened doesn’t mean shit.

    Funny how the bunker could see that but either didn't see or chose to ignore a blatant headbutt......
    Problem is refs are too gutless, if they only sin bin one player it's a game changer, they'd rather sit on the fence and equally punish both teams even if one team is clearly more in the wrong

    The headbutt will be a MRC issue, it was prob classified under the same as punches.
    And no, thats not the problem. If anybody throws punches, they sit down. It does not matter if IN YOUR OPINION one team started it or did it worse. One team doesnt get off throwing punches cause the other team did a headbutt.

    Fitzgibbon didn’t throw a punch. The footage doesn’t exist.

    Considering the rants you went on in the game day thread, you were probably too busy spitting chips to watch.
