Yeh last Friday night when he sooked over a perfectly legal tackle by Joffa must have made him realise afterwards he's just too old for the rough and tumble of NRL.

Good luck to him in the future. Please don't spoil such a great legacy with anymore of those sooks Cooper.
He earned his team a penalty when they were in all sorts of trouble. Clever work from one of the cleverest players to lace a boot in my lifetime.

If you class sooking as a shrewd way to earn a penalty your welcome to your idea of a great footy game. It's not mine though.

Cronk and the other twerp should have been penalized for their reaction. Pretty much shoved and held Offa to the ground.

Because it was done in a low underhand way. If you can't see that that sort of crap slipping into the game is the thin end of the wedge. If it continues we end up like the Prima donnas of European soccer. There's no place for it in our game and I'm sure there are many here who would agree.

Creeping in? It's been happening for a long time. Wally was the best at it.

Pat wasn't too bad either.


Gene got five minutes.

At least our commentators call it out...mostly. In soccer they go along with it, even praise it.

Cronk's reaction isn't what earned them a penalty.
I think it partly was. The other reason he got a penalty is because of who he is. Same reason he got 6 again for a shit pass.

I think there's a good chance Joffa's shot goes unpunished if Cronk and Chrichton don't escalate it by reacting the way they did, but I suppose they may have still blown the penalty without all the carry on.

I'd put him on par or just above a Ricky Stuart, agree with Port just below Alf and co. He's a QLD legend though, his most valuable contribution to rugby league.
