Admitting they got it wrong doesn't give the Tigers 2 points though.

Just another standard NRL balls up. I can guarantee it won't be the last for the season.

You can tell it's the NRL's favourite team. No points lost !!

So much for consistency.

They were cap compliant at start of season, every other team that lost their points were not compliant.

The breach was found later in the season last year, so they would lose points for last year as per the rules. No point now. If they had won the premiership then that would of been stripped.

A few years back the Warriors lost 4 points, and even though they were compliant when the finding came out they were not when they garnered the first four points.

That goes part way to explaining why they are inconsistent . Thanks Slippery.

Storm always my No 1 mate. Cowboys my No 2.

Looks like the ref is trying to make amends in the second half. All over the shop.

Once again ref consistency being questioned by the commentators.

Storm atrocious tonight.

Should have stayed home and let the refs blow their whistles.

The Storm/Sharks game had no flow,- full stop.
One try and 33 penalties, FFS !! The players were just so frustrated at full time that they had a go at each other. I can't blame them.
Sure every player in recent times has been flouting the rules knowing they won't be pinged, and if the ref's don't make them obey the rules it will just be a shamozzle,- but it must be done with consistency and it's not. I've seen two identical infringements and one player is given 10 minutes and the other is simply penalised. Crazy.

Yeah well If I had gone into the refs it would have been sour grapes or some crap from someone. Something is very wrong when Smith gets sent off. First time in his career.

I don't usually take much notice of Gus Gould but I reckon he was on the money (there's a pun in there for later) when he said he believes the refs are going OTT as a protest against the games highest officials.

I wonder if those same officials are pandering to their major sponsor to drag the game out? Time is money.

CF if they are going overboard, I think it is aimed towards their biggest critics. The same ones that repeatedly bagged them out for not taking action on repeated deliberate offside on the try line and the play the ball.

These critics are led by the king hypocrit- Gus Gould!

He is the boss at a footy club, vested interest maybe?

I have heard countless criticism of the officials on countless threads, and they are the same people who lambasted them last year for not blowing the penalties. Yet not one has placed the blame on the players for infringing the long standing rules.

Funny the two least penalised sides in regards to offside are the Dragons and the Warriors, where do they sit on the ladder? I guess they actually took the refs edict at the start of the season seriously.

It seems to me that a player only gets criticised in this country if he tampers with a cricket ball.

Well that's another theory.

So you missed Bellamy's post match interview.

Yes and I thought both he and Smith handled it very well. However it was hard to miss the passive aggressive swipe at the officials, “the refs are only following orders from above”. Basically that translates to, We don’t agree with them, but do not want to get fined.

I posted on another website in regards to the current stand off in league and the ball tampering episode. Went something like this:

What we are seeing at the moment in RL is a crackdown on breaking the rules. These rules have been in place for as long as I can remember, same as ball tampering in cricket. As fans we have lamented the damage to the game that these infringements are causing but have largely turned a blind eye in the name of entertainment, same as ball tampering in cricket.

In fact ball tampering has largely been ignored as part of the game for decades. We have seen the constant bending of the rules by not only the Australian team, but nearly every other international side. The fans shrug this off as part of the modern game, enhancing the spectacle. Now look where that has got us!

I now see a lot of people sanctioning the same ignorance in RL in the name of entertainment. So the question is, where will this stop?

The hypocrisy in all this is palpable. Only days ago three cricketers got flayed and destroyed by all and sundry for breaking the rules, bending the fabric of the game. Yet here we are condoning the flagrant bending and breaking of rules in another sport.

I agree with most of that. It's the lack of consistency I am sick of. In the Penrith / Nth Qld game the ref blew once early for line creep and then no more , yet both teams were up off their line for the rest of the game.
