Professional sport? Yes, I'd agree.
British American Football is spectacularly catastrophic in how badly it's run, this year has seen playoff teams forfeit because they can't afford a coach trip, referees not being allocated to games, a division made of 3 teams because of clubs pulling out before the season even started, then the governing body refusing to call an EGM because the Chairman was going to have some 'Town Hall style meetings'

Knowles has been fortunate but it's most amusing to see some pie fans claiming Knowles actions were worse than Bateman's when his cheap late shot caused a player to go off and to now miss potentially the biggest game of his life whereas the Salford lad played on for the rest of the game and would've been available for selection had they had a game this week. But that's Wigan 'logic' for you.

I agree with most of that, quite a lot of clubs over the years have become more professional in many areas, whilst the RFL with its disciplinary process has become more amateur.

For me the Bateman ban manipulation is far worse than what we we,ve seen so far this season.

If people actually read how Knowles got off instead of just going “grrr St Helens” they would realise that Saints were actually correct. It’s not their fault the rfl are utterly incompetent and should be glad that St Helens did what they did which may open the door for other teams to get their players off stupid bans next season

Hi mate. You’ve been quiet since “the best team in SL” got knocked out of the play offs by a team who lost more games than they won all season. You ok mate?

I have read it. Officially, he has got off because no reasonable panel could come to the conclusion that two previously had. Rush has been able to conflate the concepts of unnatural position and unacceptable risk, and suggest that it is unreasonable, even contradictory, to suggest that the latter could exist in the absence of the former. It is a very basic rhetorical trick (allowing the defendant to define a threshold above a previously accepted description) and in of itself not an unreasonable point. However, it is nowhere close to rendering the opposite view unreasonable. The second appeal panel may well agree with definition helpfully provided by Rush - but more than that, they have to say that taking the opposite view is unreasonable, that the original decisions were not guided or based on good sense. A lot of people would disagree with that view… but, I get that it isn’t a democracy. However, presumably the members of the previous panels who lacked good sense will be suspended from future involvement in disciplinary procedures, on that basis, or at least have the opportunity to be educated on how to act reasonably by Mike Rush, Danny Sculthorpe, Wilf George and His Honour Roger Thomas QC DL.

What we have to realise is that many people who post on here or not, will be absolutely sickened by the way our sport is run, especially with this latest mrp decision. When attendances start to drop, we'll start doing more surveys as to why this is happening.
