    Here are some head line updates:

    I couldn't believe I was reading this... again.

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/n...rigin-refereeing/story-e6frfghx-1226418329394

    He's off to meet the REF bosses next week after they came out and said the Hodges try was the correct ruling. Unbelievable... IT WAS A TRY! He want Harrigan to be able to over rule video refs...?!??!

    ------------------------------------

    I read the above just after reading this:

    http://www.gladstoneobserver.com.au/story/2012/07/06/blues-let-down-southern-media/

    (this was a breath of fresh air before reading about Sooky off to the refs office again. And he said he's sick of being called a Sook... well, he was pretty admirable after the game but can he keep it up..?)

    ------------------------------------

    For those who like to talk about how much is too much, NSW have found a banner to blow up about:

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/n...-suncorp-stadium/story-e6frfghx-1226418307653

    (seriously though, while some things in this article are a bit too much, if we reported above everything the spectators do at any SOO game we would have a list of similar offences.. just seems like digging to me)

    I remember when QLD was being banged by some real shocking ref decisions. It was Origin 3, 2006. What did we do? We went and won the ****ing game. Started this amazing run. You have sill much to learn, NSW, my padawan.
     
    Darren Lockyer. No Try.

    Argument is invalid NSW.
     
  4. I love how they say he was "cleared of all charges". Actually, he was convicted and sentenced, and got off on appeal only when his ex "miraculously" decided to testify to the appeal hearing in his defence, after refusing to testify in the trial.

    If anyone believes Greg Bird is innocent they're absolute morons.

    Absolutely. But he was cleared in court, so let it go. It's exactly the same as the Inglis case.

    I read that article, and I can't find where it says he's meeting with the refs?

    Sigh. Looks like the Tele's run of good sportsmanship lasted only a day.
     
  9. The first paragraph?

    very first line, in bold....

    "NSW coach Ricky Stuart is set for a fiery showdown with referees bosses Bill Harrigan and Stuart Raper next week"

    beat me to it nashy!

    on the cam smith article, i cant believe they have the nerve to put down "77th minute face rub". i would go back and document every single face rub that NSW did on QLD in Game 3 alone, but to save the effort you could just take the total amount of tackles NSW did, minus about 10, and youve got your figure.

    WHAT!?!??! LOL!!!!!

    Here is the banner for all those who love it so much :)

    P.S They were complaining about it being on channel 9 in full sight of however many million viewers, so what do they do? Go and let another million viewers see it in the article :)

  14. The worst part about that punch from Tate is the fact he didn't fracture the scumbags skull.

    If he didn't have that last second hesitation he very well might have... we were all watching the replay guessing Tate's thoughts..

    "Oh.. the cheek is right there... should I.. should I... nah, could get sin binned.. BUT WHAT A CHANCE! Ahh stuff it."

    It wasn't even a proper punch. He totally restrained himself.

    I don't know why they even bothered with this article. You can go through every tackle in game 2 and see plenty of illegal moves and dirty plays from both teams in almost every one.

    Pretty much, it wont do them any good.

    I just realised I wrote game 2 but I did mean game 3. Then again you can do it for all series and probably for the last 5 years as well. I would be interested to see which team was found out to be more dirty.
