  • It grieves me to hear to follow League mick.

  • Hate video referees.
    I already have lost a lot of interest in this game because of it.
    Watching players pacing up and down whilst the vid ref deliberates is not the most exciting aspect of the game.
    I would prefer to hurl abuse at ref for making a decision.
    Refs get it wrong, the fans abuse the ref , this is Australia and what makes Aussie sports great.
    The rawness of the game and the pub arguments that follow.
    Don't need Big Brother running our sports.

  • These people are fools the Ref refered to the Video Ref because he was not sure. The fact is that sometimes and maybe more than often the "Benefit of the doubt" was just another way of saying biased opinion, which is what the video ref took out of the game or at least miminised it, typical Bob you are always for cheating.

  • Yeah two good rule changes. We finally have certainty over who can represent their State after some pretty dodgy selections by the QRL and NSWRL. And now the ref has to signify whether he believes it is a try or not before referring it to the video dolts who never seem to get it right anyway.
    And really pleased the Commission has actually done something.
