OUTRAGE POST 3/3

Have the media decided that they no longer want us as a contender this year? This one is definitely tin-foil hat. But tying in with the above, how many obviously forward passes are let go every game? Very frequently we'll see them in try-scoring situations, especially with a flat pass close to the line.

So why did The Roar single out Corey Oates' try as an "OMG how was this not called" forward pass clickbait video? There would have been way more questionable ones every weekend, in fact there were some against us in that very game that were way more suspect, yet it's us that being made to appear that we are getting away with tries that shouldn't be allowed?

Is it because we beat the Eels? We have been poor in the last couple of games, and some of our players have been absolutely shocking, it's not like the NRL are forcing Niu to be dumb. But with how easy it is to manipulate games, are we being allowed to compete on an even playing field?

Please tell me I'm not the only one that is absolutely furious with this?

Carrigan was made an example of to stamp this out of the game. It wasn't about the injury caused, it was about the potential to cause injury if it isn't stamped out of the game. That's why we grudgingly accepted the over-the-top ban, right?

I've gone past anger and now I'm accepting that the NRL is absolute clown college of fuckwits.

How can they go from demanding 6 weeks for a Pat Carrigan to a fine for Brandon Smith? They can't even be consistent in charging players in the same week (see Tatola's tackle on Kennedy) so why would they be consistent when it's more than 7 days.

Wow............so surprising............the serial offending idiot from a darling club gets off with a pat on the bum.

I've just about had a gutful of the NRL, I'm reaching boycott stage if I'm honest.

The Broncos need to stand up, its all fine and great to be the noble, cop it on the chin club but FMD the NRL farkers aren't even trying to hide the bias anymore.

Biggest farken club in the comp and they let the friggin NRL walk all over them.

didn't they change the system in the off season to eliminate the impact of a players record

Nah Cleary got upgraded because of previous charges .
Patty being a clean skin got taken into consideration in the Judiciary explanation of his suspension .

Maybe previous years charges . But within this year , seems they add on .

It's a luxury having a hooker who has the speed and step of an outside back
