They're just inept.
You need a legal degree to watch footy these days. The heart of rugby league isn't your highly qualified academic type and we're getting disengaged by all the rubbish that's actually affecting the results.
We'd do a lot better as a sport to remember it's entertainment and not an ongoing investigation.

Just came back to reception and **** the match review and the explanations are ridiculous, can they **** up any more?

NAS is a Joke and the explanation is hilarious.

As you say, the nrl response to our question would be some political mumbo jumbo.

People need to be sacked without being melodramatic. That explanation was so bad it isn't funny. Minimal impact.....yeah the teeth just fell out by themselves.

That’s because the teeth slowed it down on the way there

Totally right mate. It's about the effect, not the action. So many shoulder charges, head clashes, elbows, hip drops and high shots have gone by without mention in the last few weeks because the player hasn't been laid out. You can understand why they stay down looking up at the screen and basically holding up play until it's reviewed. I don't blame them for doing it even though I don't like watching it.

Was a good example of this in our game last night against Dragons. One of our players tackled McGuire in what looked like a borderline spear tackle but McGuire stuck his arm out to brace with the ground and he was fine - ref let play go on so we logically assume was a legal tackle

Whats the bet if McGuire doesn't stick his arm out and his head hits the turf that the ref would have still have ruled it a legal tackle? Especially if McGuire stays down and they check the replay

I hope he’s a little more uncomfortable after watching Dykes on Saturday. Watch your back Will, you’ve got some competition now, so step up young man.

When the rules encroach on the game you're trying to watch to the point no-one knows what the rules are anymore it makes it impossible to seperate the two.
I cancelled Kayo until the basketball season starts again.
