Why watch if you feel it is rigged? How can you still get enjoyment out of the game?
By putting money on the golden children.Works every time but my love for my team and for a fair go for the people sees me rile up.
Ha. Often works for me. The more I hate 'em, the more I put on.
Yup.Its like Kissing your sister(I would imagine :)Betting oon the teams you hate.Oh well as I write this Fox are crossing to Cronulla for Ricky Stuarts post match conference.Make ZERO MISTAKE THE ONE AND ONLY REASON CANBERRA WERE RORTED TONIGHT WAS TO HELP MAKE SURE THE BRONCOS GET IN THE FINALS.

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.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Storm, Roosters, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

Realising I'm Right is months down the track for you it seems.Difference between you and me is I'm gonna do something about this crap while you just continue to sarcastically rip a fan of the same team while we get well and truly F'd over.Ever seen a team told your not the home team this week Souths are now give Sutton everything he wants.This was basically the words from our own CEO a little earlier in the week.

I think it is going to take a team to storm off mid match to make a statement to the NRL

Oh, there have been times where I wish our team would do that. Wouldn't that be something.

It's a bit sooky though, childlike even. Better off starting a fight and start swinging with half a dozen players at least really going at it and being sent off first. We lack the personnel though. None of our players have the cajones. Robbie maybe. He'd be the closest. I don't know if the team would follow him his lead now in doing that, where once upon a time they definitely would have.

............or just boycott the game. Show up, but just stand on the sidelines and refuse to take the field. Let the NRL deal with CH9 and Fox with the explanation.

It wouldn't be that hard , coach calls the team off

Gus almost lead his team off v Manly years ago , I think it was the match Harragon sent Gus off the from the bench

Or better still, fan boycotts. Boycott any game against a Mexican team.

As I read this watching the Broncos game and Milford pulls Corey Harawira Naera by the hair and slams him to the ground after a Panthers line break no sin bin.Commentators say this must be a sin bin.Nup.Two times earlier in the game commentators say well that bronco must go to the bin.Nope.3 times in the one match.Throw in the absolutely nothing penalties that the touch judges have screamed to the ref to give to the broncos.Ricky Stuart is totally right the outside voices are influencing the refs FAR TOO MUCH.Golden child teams win or see yourself in Reserve grade quicker than you can say squat.

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.

Seriously though......we all get emotional when we feel ripped off. But is the game rigged?? I used to think absolutely not - not a chance. But I now don’t say that with such assurance. Why?
1. Brisbane’s run of Friday night games over the past few years - surely gives them a 4 to 6 point advantage on the table
2. Smiths ability to manipulate refs which manifested to refs giving storm majority if 50/50 calls
3. Subconscious bias towards stronger clubs - this happens with unhealthy regularity
4. Betting on NRL - betting on sport has historically led to corruption. We are crazy to think our game is immune
5. Money - it just makes good sense to ensure that a team like Melbourne or Brisbane are playing the money games because their audience is bigger. Much more important than a team like..... I don’t know ..... maybe Canberra?!!
When you think logically about the above points the conclusion I come to is there has to be a level of corruption at some point - do we go as far as calling it ‘rigging’? I don’t know but what I keep seeing over and over again scares me.
And no - I don’t want to follow another sport but I’d like to feel more comfortable about the sport I do follow
