I'm still trying to see where the "unnecessary pressure" supposedly is. Maybe I'm one-eyed or maybe some blokes are just judiciary targets. Granted, Blair is no clean skin and has earned the bad rap, but if Josh Morris performed the same tackle on Blair I doubt he even gets cited. Anyway, no use crying over spilt milk!

Agreed, but surely a penalty was enough.

The guys on Fox tonight are going off saying he should have copped more! I guess I need to see it in super slow motion but it didnt look like much to me.

It is very typical of the NRL on Fox panel.

I agree it should be pulled up more.

However with the exception of MG they only tend to call out ex Storm players whilst all the time ignoring the club that causes it and always deflecting attention away from Bellamy & the Storm

The judiciary's reason for suspending him was ridiculous. That "he applied avoidable pressure with his shoulder". If this is their justification for finding him guilty then this is a joke! As Humphreys as said, this sets a real low bar with future cases. If you ask me, his Melbourne back ground counted against him.

Its a deliberate, malicious move with the potential to cause serious injury.
Totally unnecesary

You blokes need to drop the goggles....this crap isnt rugby league, its wrestling, what everyone here has been pissmoaning about for years!!

i wish it wasn't our player, but an excellent long term "line in the sand" to stop that tactic

That's fair Ink, but the inconsistency from the judiciary is ridiculous. Ennis' effort was far worse and he gets off scot free. It's not just this game, or even our club. Teams regularly have players cited whilst there are other incidents that are let off, be it the opposition or even their own team.
Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest!

I get the suspension but as stated Ennis came up with an absolute dog act and wasn't sighted.

In a sense I agree with you, its just tough to take when there are other clubs where this sort of act is part of their game and its not pulled up

I think he deserves 3-4 weeks

Grabbing a guys ankle and twisting it is a dog act. Nothing accidental about. Nothing tough about.

Face it Blair is a grub and is playing average footy. I couldn't care less that he is missing a week.

This sort of rubbish has always been in his game and if they gave him 3-4 weeks maybe he would wake up and get rid of it.
