    Ref boss coming out saying: "It was the right decision", is so fucking weak it's not funny.

    You prick, it's not the decision that's the problem. It's the changing of the call during the run of play.

    What a fuckwit.

    The controversy has been way overstated now, Raiders certainly were not 'robbed' of anything. If he still knows it's the last he's either going to throw a random pass or grubber it into the legs of the defenders, there was nothing happening. Roosters won because when they had to score points they did so. They played conservative all night, then had to weather 12 men and then when they needed another try they attacked and got one. Raiders couldn't do it despite having 10x the chances, and if they did get some luck and grabbed a try I'm confident the Roosters would've started chancing their hand more and likely would've scored a try straight back.

    Could easily have made them go back to play the ball after changing the call.

    Yeah I agree with most of this. 70% possession in that second half and only a penalty goal. Whatever blame is put on Cummins, much more needs to go on Leilua yet nobody is talking about the try he butchered. Surely that cost them the match more than anything else.

    Players are meant to have a say in determining the result of a match, not offficials. If that incident didn't happen the Roosters could and probably would have gone onto win the game. But it was a massive part of the game, and denying it wasn't is just dishonest. The fact you are looking for things that possibly decided the match more, proves how big it was.

    Yeah not really....

    Rapana almost certainly wouldve scored. It's unlikely Canberra wouldve scored off the play Cummins ruined.

    Thats just the fact of the matter.
  7. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    For you to say ive been dishonest about the gravity of it is ridiculous. It was big, just not as big as the people on social media think it was.
  8. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    And bigger than the people saying it didn't make a difference. It was one of the biggest moments of the match.

    Well i've said what i think.

    Well done to Easts for going back to back first time since 93. Well done to Canberra for their season. Thanks to Cronk for all the great moments in his career.

    Great game of footy.
  10. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    First time since 98 realistically. SL was the stronger comp by far.
  11. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Not really. There were only 10 teams.
  12. Julian BJ Taylor

    I can’t watch a replay but I was pretty convinced at the time the late pass ended up being ok. I could be wrong but I’ve definitely seen worse let go this season.
  13. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    It was quite forward imo.

    Im not saying Brisbane wouldnt have probably won a combined comp. Just as i wouldnt say Bradman wouldnt have hit countless centuries in the hiatus during ww2. But we dont know for sure because it didnt happen. Thus it doesnt count.
  16. morgieb MC Burridge

    That Newcastle side seems so ordinary by Premier standards. Even Manly on paper leave them in their wake.
  17. Julian BJ Taylor

    The top 3 Super League sides would have been top 3 in a combined competition IMO.
  18. Julian BJ Taylor

    It's a horrendous bench but besides not having a gun hooker it's a pretty bloody solid side IMO. The entire backline (besides Craigie who himself was supremely talented) played Origin.
  19. morgieb MC Burridge

    Didn't realise that Albert did (and kinda forgot that Hughes did). Agree the backline is good, just don't think all that much of the pack (with the caveat that I was too young to really watch them play)

    In any case apart from maybe the year Wests won it can you think of a modern side that won the Premiership that was worse? That was mostly my point.
  20. Julian BJ Taylor

    Richards the only below par running forward Imo
