Nate Myles Elbow

Discussion in 'State of Origin 2014' started by Big Pete, Jul 9, 2014.

    Late into the second half, Myles had a sickening collision with Greg Bird which left Greg clutching at his throat and in all sorts.

    Do you think there was more to it? Was there an elbow that collected Bird in the throat?

    Or did Bird just sell the throat like he was fighting John Cena for the WWE Championship?

    Correct call, wrong call, Oscar nomination.

    Myles should be severely punished and fined.

    For not doing a good enough job of injuring Bird.

    Academy Award performance. Bird was clutching at his throat for a good 5 seconds before he even found the turf. Just an utter grub of a player.
  4. I wished he'd done a proper job. Bird is a cat of the highest order.

    Watch the 3 hit ups Aaron Woods took and he does the same thing every time before he submits in a tackle.
  5. I didn't know Bird's vagina was up so high.

    That'll do me.
  7. If it was anyone else but Bird, I'd say there was a definite issue. But Greg Bird acts like he's being choked every single **** tackle. Boy who cried wolf etc etc.

    I thought you were allowed to lead with an arm in a North/South position, just not cocked left to right. Wasn't the defense for JWH that it was the former a couple of weeks ago vs the Knights (though he does the latter a bunch too)?

    Plus Bird leapt in and was airborne in order to even make contact. He came in fishing for the penalty, no doubt. He was successful in that respect but I'd be disappointed if the judiciary doesn't see it for what it was.

    Kinda poetic justice when you think about it. Who are the Titans playing next?

    Raiders @ Cbus.

    Speaking of Titans, anyone catch Bird's soundbite to Tayor after his second dropped ball? Funny shit.

    I thought the elbow missed Bird's throat.

    Bird could teach the soccer players on how to take dives.

    I thought gallen's headbutts in the same tackle warranted more attention.

    Myles is a pretty grubby player. Birds acting was outstanding.

    He said "That's twice now, you stupid ****"...

    I didn't think it hit his throat just the collarbone area, he actually looks over toward the ref to see if the penalty is coming then hits the deck to make sure of it.
    When he is walking off he feels the contact spot and it's the collarbone.

    Gallen raises his elbow almost every tackle as well yet the refs never seem to deem it an offence ????

    Saying that though it was a prett bad look from Myles.

    He'll no doubt get some time off for it.

    Was at the game and even the blues supporters behind me were giving him shit and telling him to get up.

    My favourite was the guy in a blues onesy directly behind me that had been smashing beers since 4. He gets up and screams at bird. "Get up ya cat **** before I fucken glass ya"
