Stop changing the rules! : Fri Nov 24, 2023 3:48 pm  
One of the big problem with the game these days is constant rule changes

If we struggle to keep up how is your average sports fan supposed to ?

You don't see any other sport changing the rules season after season

Try/no try on the screen is rubbish

2 point drop goal nonsense

Captains challenge makes the game too stop start

6 again is ok if policed right

How does captains challenge make the game stop start? It’s literally twice a half. The only reason it wasn’t brought in because they wanted to stop St Helens winning 5 in a row. If it was brought in, saints would have won SL again

I will address you as a multiple account user. Here goes...... Whatever the rules are next season, Saints won't win anything again next season. There you go. :thumb:

If it was brought in last year, Saints would have finished lower as their grubiness would have come to light.

As an example, Leeds would have turned you over twice if a Captains Challenge was brought out on Lomax's imaginary punch, and he would be sent off for lying to the referees instead of the innocent McDonnell.

What kind of champions can't fairly beat a 13 man Leeds team who struggled against Wakey and Cas? :lol:

It was Leeds who finished the season as the grubiness team in Superleague, finished the year with most red and yellow cards totally 11 for the season.

You need to watch the game ref Lomax and McDonnell again, it was the previous tackle were Lomax got punched thats why there was blood all over his face. What McDonnell did was rub his head into the face of Lomax on the next tackle, bit of grubby play that.

The question is with the new head tackle rules will James Bentley be made OBSOLETE.

There was no punch. The disciplinary panel desperate searched for one on the footage and nothing was found. The blood came from a legal tackle.

What is apparent on the tape, is Lomax blatantly lying to the match officials about being assaulting, resulting in a player wrongfully being dismissed and possibly changing the outcome of the match.

But of course, the RFL didn't penalise him or Saints. They tried to screw Leeds over again, because nothing changes.

Leeds have become a dirty team the past few years. That’s why all their best players always want to leave and are left with players no one else wants. Coupled with a poor academy that’s why they are no now a mid table team
