Honestly I can't even be bothered commenting on the judiciary anymore. It's just corrupt. There's nothing else to say.
Exactly and unfortunately for us there is no one with a presence in the media calling out the blatant bias against the Broncos... they're happy to fly the flag when it's a NSWRL darling, but because we've smashed their shitty comp for 3 decades they don't want a bar of us.

Instead it's #penaltybroncos

Surprisingly Gould is in our corner

We're fighting to downgrade the TPJ charge to a grade 1, which would make it a 1 week suspension.

We've also accepted the early guilty plea on the Turpin charge (2 weeks)
Tough on Turpin but he's had this coming. A long stint on the sideline mightn't do TPJ any harm either. Timing sucks though. Could cost us the 8.

It's not only us to be fair, the Warriors get smashed at the judiciary, if I'm not mistaken, the Bulldogs do too. It's only the darling clubs like Melbourne and the Roosters who rarely get charged but also rarely seem to lose when they challenge.

Billy Slater getting off was the most disgraceful blantant corruption I've seen in a "legal" system, ever. They supposedly model the judiciary off the actual legal system, dead set if our actual courts worked like that I'd revoke my citizenship.

Last week game, Melbourne had a minimum of 2 suspension worthy offences, NAS crusher tackle, worse than TPJs! and Kamikaze dude elbowing the neck of Dylan Walker while he was running the ball. Neither were even sighted.

Aaand to push the bias a bit further.

Tapine doesnt get suspended for a punch that got him sent to the bin... so apparently a punching is necessary contact to the head 🤔🤔🤔

Munster didn't get suspended for a cannonball tackle... so taking out knees is also all good in the NRL as well

An absolute farce.

I was thinking something along these lines today as well.

The whole ‘early guilty plea’ for a reduced sentence really does fly in the face of the notion of being innocent until proven guilty - indeed, it’s pretty much the opposite. It just encourages players not to defend themselves.

I also understand it’s the same as a plea bargain, but I’d love to know the statistics on how many players actually contest their charge - I am expecting it would be a very low number. That pretty much tells me the belief among the clubs is that the outcome is a fait accompli, so why bother?

From my understanding too, you have to prove your innocence at the NRL judiciary, rather than it being the responsibility of those representing the NRL to prove your guilt (I could be wrong, so if I am, I would appreciate someone correcting me).

Regardless, the main thing to note is it is an absolute crock. Must be like watching a circus at the MRC / judiciary.

Moloney is the ****. He highlighted Turps effort by running in and then jumped up after a dubious at best 'crusher' tackle to ping TPJ. Get fucked you little ****. And didn’t even have the god damn decency to have a haircut or even a fucken shave before gracing the greatest football field in the world. **** off now.

The club should also be fighting the grading of Turpin’s charge. The only reason why they probably aren’t is because if he loses that’s his season done unless we make the finals whereas TPJ’s season is over so practically nothing to lose.

But in regards to the Turpin one, I was happy enough if he got given a week just for the carelessness of the action but it’s not a grade 2.

All we hear about these days is how the MRC take injury into consideration, even though it shouldn’t. Sam Burgess just had a similar swinging arm downgraded from a 2 to a 1 and he knocked Moylan out and Moylan missed the Panthers game. On that basis alone I would be fighting the grading. The only difference was Turpin did his to a downed opponent but he didn’t even knock the bloke out.

Turpin deserves his sentence, he went in with a clinched fist. It was intentional and stupid, so he needs a stint.

Add the Rabbitohs to that list ... Burgess being free to play was a joke

IMO what Turpin did was reckless not careless so he is getting off light.

And I'm more than happy if that is the standard but they change their mind every week depending on how much scrutiny there is from jounos. That's the joke of it they can't even set their own standard and stick with it, then it's always the next club which infringes that gets whacked.

Thats's Greenburg for you though , under his watch the game has no idea what it needs to look like. The guy is just a pure politician.

So true, he should have just punched him in the head properly. That's much less deliberate.

The player slid and fell on his back as Turpin went in. He had a closed fist but it wasn't meant to be going at his head, unlike a punch to the head...
