NRL and other Australian Rugby League Discussion
Penrith have done well here to only be down by 4. They have had no ball. It seems like Melbourne have been campbon their line. The penalty count is ridiculous and two men have gone to the bin. If they have energy in the tank they are a real chance here.
The NRL are as corrupt as a major sporting organisation can get. They treat their fans as absolute morons. Cue Toddy with #talkthegameupandkeepyourcashcomingin. Two-bit pathetic organisation needs a major boycott by fans to enforce a monumental shake-up IMO.The Patriot wrote: ↑Fri 31 Aug, 2018 8:52 pmIve been saying it since about round 6. Its a deliberate thing by ch9.Fade To Black wrote: ↑Fri 31 Aug, 2018 8:48 pmGood point you highlight there. The TV coverage only shows certain decisions on replay on Fox and 9. Blatent crap decisions from refs are very seldom shown up on replays.......think Broncos 3-4 metre forward passes for tries as an example. Have noticed this as well Patriot.
Cant ever imagine ESPN or an international network not showing replays to protect the refs.
The bunker is the worst thing that's happened to the game
There was no obstruction... Should've been a try.
It was a shocker !
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !
No more plodders !
This pipsqueak ref is a disgrace.... The 2nd.half difference in the ruck tacklers lying on the tackled player is drastic... They've been told at half time.... It's BS, it's game management and manipulation and not reffing what they see
Sorry to hear that DP but your story is so common - many many loyal RL fans losing interest. My best mate - made Newcastle supporter now follows Jets in soccer. My cousin - all her life season ticket holder now only watches Souths games.diedpretty wrote: ↑Fri 31 Aug, 2018 8:53 pmI've been going to football games for 58 years - and religiously watched every game up until about 4 years ago when i would watch the Tigers religiously and other games as standouts. Now i couldn't give a rats. I don't even watch the Tigers games if i have something else on and usually couldn't be bothered watching a replay. As much as i love the standard of football i can no longer stand the bias by referees and the fact that only a certain number of teams are ever a chance of winning. I still follow the Tigers and still enjoy coming on here to see whats going on - but as for the NRL its a lost cause.
The numbnuts of the NRL have no idea how much damage they are causing. Let’s get weekend footy mums and touch footy fanatics interested and let’s totally ignore the people who love and support the game.
