Garner for us, Suli & Fainu for manly, Lewis for the dogs. None are allowed to play 1st grade until they have their contract upgraded and in the case of Fainu, the NRL telling Manly who the can select at hooker.

The Broncos can pick Kotoni Staggs from outside their top 30 despite having Pearson, Opacic, Shibasaki & Mosese Pangai from in their top 30 available.

Can't have Queensland not have a team in the finals.

This bias - has to stop.

Broncos won by 30 and people are saying the officiating handed them the game. What am I missing?

I really think you're confusing 'rigged' and 'uneven'
The comps been uneven for years... If you're so angry about it stop putting your own $$$ into it... Don't buy memberships, don't go o games, don't buy merch, cancel foxtel and stop punting on it

9 from the last 12 premierships to the NRL - not bad.

Have to give a dog the odd bone, or maybe on 3 occasions the dog was too good to be overcome.

One thing the NRL try and push is how even the comp is. If they were rigging it you wouldn’t have teams missing the finals for years in end. Everyone would get a turn every couple of years.

The best thing you can do is to follow another sport... plenty of options available. For me, I choose to start following the NFL (not everyone’s cup of tea)... I loosely followed it from 2012-2014, and then started really getting it in 2015. Now I absolutely love it. I still follow league, but not as closely as once upon a time.
lol Do you know how rigged a lot of supporters think the NFL is. I'm a huge supporter of the NFL and the forums have so many threads about how rigged the NFL is.
It's a phenomenon you will see across just about every sporting league; i.e. fans claiming the competition is rigged to favour a few teams... e.g.
NFL - Pats, Cowboys
NRL - Broncos, Roosters
NBA - Lebron, Warriors etc.

It's a universal reaction for fans to whinge when things don't go their way. If you truly think your beloved competition is rigged (it's not, by the way), then I suggest allocating more of your time to follow other sports.
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

Correct.
The NRL is just poorly run, they are totally incompetent.

Was going to say the same thing

XL February 5, 2006 Pittsburgh Steelers over Seattle Seahawks
XLI February 4, 2007 Indianapolis Colts over Chicago Bears
XLII February 3, 2008 New York Giants over New England Patriots
XLIII February 1, 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers over Arizona Cardinals
XLIV February 7, 2010 New Orleans Saints over Indianapolis Colts
XLV February 6, 2011 Green Bay Packers over Pittsburgh Steelers
XLVI February 5, 2012 New York Giants over New England Patriots
XLVII February 3, 2013 Baltimore Ravens over San Francisco 49ers
XLVIII February 2, 2014 Seattle Seahawks over Denver Broncos
XLIX February 1, 2015 New England Patriots over Seattle Seahawks
50 February 7, 2016 Denver Broncos over Carolina Panthers
LI February 5, 2017 New England Patriots over Atlanta Falcons
LII February 4, 2018 Philadelphia Eagles over New England Patriots

Certainly lots of Super Bowl appearances for Patriots, Steelers and Seahawks... must be rigged! Patriots have won 5, lost 3 of the last 18 Super Bowls.

Idk what’s worse, the bad officiating or the constant whining about it. If anything ever turns me away from the game, it will be the whinging.
If the whinging upsets you so much i am curious to why you would look in this thread and then bother to post in it? Seems strange to me.
