Looked worse in full speed and in my minds eye, though I still stand by Slater's tendency to lead with the knees and legs
how many times has slater been penalised for leading with the knees and legs? once? twice maybe? he used to slide in feet first whenever he could because it was a legitimate tackle and he saved NUMEROUS tries because of it by getting his feet/legs under the ball and theyre unable to ground it. as soon as the NRL outlawed it hes probably done it once or twice, no more than any other fullback.

I haven't. In fact it's only the second or third game I've watched of the Dogs this year. That's why I went for "allegedly". The old Mike Tyson might be common place in the Northern Hemisphere.
Wasnt having a go at u for the record. Im just hearing heaps of this "out of character" stuff floating around in regards to this, and its out of the mouths of people, who at best, have only seen him play this year

Inu anger at late hits led to melees

I was probably the instigator," Inu said when asked of last night's incident, which came after Melbourne fullback Billy Slater slid in on Perrett as the Bulldog scored his team's only try of the match.

"I was up for the moment. I think every time one of our boys dived in the corner there's always something involved. I wasn't taking it this time."

Inu pushed Slater to the ground, even though replays showed Slater had done nothing wrong after the try, and that is when things got out of control.

How many other fullbacks were penalised during the past 5 years for leading with the knees and legs?

It might have been a legitimate way of defending a try (i.e. kicking the ball from an attacking players hands) but kicking someone in the face has always been illegal.

Again, arguing infinitum about a tangent to the central debate seems to be a way that AP argues (and arguing from ignorance "if you can't prove me wrong, then I am right").

The rules about leading with the feet were changed because of Slater's tactics.

Therefore it is reasonable to state that Slater has a propensity to lead with the feet. A greater propsenity than other fullbacks.

Therefore it is reasonable that he was more likely to have lead with the knees on Perrett(but I accept that isn't the case now after seeing the still frame).

Not sure if this belongs here but it is GF discussion.

Next year or soon after the commission surely have to get the Qcup and NSWRL winners to play each other on GF day.

There are several ways to make it happen. Having the 2 winners meet is simple but it would be hard to get back up for another GF after winning your local comp.

Another way is to have a final 8 made up from the 4 top sides from both comps making sure the respective state sides play each other. So essentially have a final 4 and you would have to beat your local sides first which makes you premiers of the local comp then play for an interstate final on GF day. A total of 4 weeks finals.

GF day would be under 20s, interstate GF then the big one.

That is a great idea. Maybe a gateway to a National Tier 2 competition.

I thought this as well when watching it. Perrett was pissed for all of a second then got up and threw the ball in the air to celebrate and move on, until Stag and Inu come over to start the scrap. Very ordinary from Tolman, hopefully gets made an example of once and for all for the biters in the game.
Apart from that, the atmos at the game was awesome, so much blue and white it was unbelievable. Never seen the crowd so one sided at a GF, and in saying that, dogs supporters were great (storm as well), good friendly banter (not including Belmore Streets haha)
