What part did you find funny?
Realising you're serious

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.
LMAO yeah mate you're right.
What you gonna do about it hey? :lol:


Just joined the Raiders forum gonna talk about the same topic I just found the Manly Site by google search where they are livid with the Broncos calls from Sutton and REFS CEO Sutton Snr etc.

So the NRL is rigged for Melbourne, Brisbane, Souths, Manly and Roosters.

Melbourne have had success on the back of have 3 of the best players for the passed decade.

Brisbane haven’t won a premiership since 2006 and have made up the numbers in the finals most times since then.

Manly have been a basket case for almost 10 years.

The Roosters have had up and down success but they stack their roster trying to buy premierships and have got one of late.

Souths were a disaster, had a few good years won a premiership, were rubbish again, have come good again.

If you were the NRL wouldn’t you want the teams you’re rigging it for to win the premiership?

Tell me another Major Competition in the world where one team always plays on the Friday night thus getting a seven day break vs their opponents.Do you think if Wests tigers won a premiership with a grapple tackle,chicken wings putting players in wheelchairs we would of gone unchecked like ten years straight.Manly this year suck and have no pull but don't worry once they get to the top again you watch them get the calls again.

Not to a Brisbane or Melbourne level but a hell of a lot more than us Wests tigers.Souths(as I have stated previously only turned into darlings once Rusty came on)have for the first time in history complained to the NRL(Rusty called on Tuesday.FACT)Complaining there was nothing for Suttons 300th the NRL then tell Justin Pascoe you gotta put the 300 on the field how bout 250 for Robbie?Nope go get bent.Roosters where do I start?

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

I agree with Ricky that the problem is the referee boss changing interpretation of rules whenever they feel like it.

These things should be changed in the off-season unless it is causing some kind of major issue (player welfare)

Now they call the coaches some with 1 session left before a game and want to target a certain thing in a game?

Inconsistency has always been the major issue in the NRL for me, seems be even worse this year.

Will never work.. what other sport does it?

Just got home from the Broncos game and I'm not saying Penrith would have won but gee wizz the Broncos get away with murder.

Every time I go to that joint I say I'm never going there again, bloody misses birthday had to coincide with the Penrith game.

The real problem is much deeper but much more simple.Just look at the teams getting the calls and the teams getting dudded. Do we remember that try the Roosters scored last weekend off 27 knockons only for the video ref to allow it.

Uneven is the better description. Still, my continued participation is being tested this season like none before. I couldn't give a rats about Canberra but I think they were badly dudded by ref calls last night.

I doubt the game is actually rigged however there are some sides that do get favoured. We all know who they are. But Brisbane is in a different league altogether and especially this year. The NRL has to have a team from Qld in the semis otherwise they lose half their viewing audience. I wouldn't be surprised if the good calls keep going Brisbane's way and they end up in the top 4. Two home semis at Suncorp. Great for tv. And great for Qld.

But terrible for integrity and fairness,under Greenberg even the illusion of balance is evaporating

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.
