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...
No but a swinging arm with a clinched fist to someone on the ground, and it was always going to hit him high. Where else was it going to connect?

He slid on the ground. When you slide your body moves. It was reckless at worst. He went to hit him hard and it went wrong. The non-suspension was a punch in the face.. A PUNCH IN THE FACE...

I hope if we make the finals and have to play the Panthers that Seibs reads this little quote out from maloney to the boys - "They're not the same quality as some of the other sides. And we've still got some improvement. I wouldn't be worried about Brisbane," Maloney said, as he touched down in Sydney on Saturday. Disrespectful little twat!
Firstly Jimmy, let me just say ... SCOREBOARD

and to kick you while you're down, let me just say ... LADDER

and for the cherry, let me just say ... we overtook you with out any bloody halves, since they are all injured

and I'll allow Cartman to have the final word

Turpin should get a week off with an early plea. Tapine should also get a week off with an early plea. The Storm should be kicked out of the comp, dirty cheating spine snapping pieces of shit the fucken lot of 'em.

TPJ should have just kneed Maloney in the head ... would likely have been free to play then.

We all know about Flanagan escaping suspension for blatantly kneeing Lodge in the head,

Well Brooks dropped his knee into the face of the Sea Eagles Jack Gosiewski, who was lying on the ground and is getting off with a $1500 fine

I don't think anyone really minds the Turpin ruling, it is basically the one ruling of late they've got right.
I don't mind the ruling at all. He deserves a suspension... The problem is the 6 or 7 they've let go in recent weeks. There's no way thats worse than a punch to the head "but it's a closed fist", which is exactly what a punch is but with pure intent to hurt.

It feels like every year we are always the club that seem to suffer from any hard-line stance by the MRC, whilst Melbourne continues to get off.

Big difference punching someone in the face when they're upright and looking at you, then lying on the ground holding a footy. It was weak and he shouldn't have done it.

I think we need a montage. Someone with some video editing skills and time to put together all these "highlights of unmitigated violence" and after each hit, freeze and stamp on the screen (with a gavel banging sound effect) Grade 1 - 1 week, or No Charge, or... You get it. Any takers? I'd definitely help that go viral. Expose the inconsistencies of this ridiculous judiciary.

You mean like that time Flanagan kneed lodge in the head while he was on the ground, ball under one arm and at least one other bloke holding him and proceeded to get suspended for exactly 0 weeks?

I doubt anyone is denying what Turpin did was silly and deserves punishment. However, I think everyone is suggesting there is no consistency - some people get away with murder whilst others are hung out to dry.

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.
Wrong, I saw them. I'm surprised neither were cited.

I completely agree it's inconsistent and am real dirty with the TPJ grading. Also the kneeing incidents are ridiculous, that's obvious intent and deserves harsher penalties.
My argument was that a punch thrown when 2 players are face to face is different to what turpin did.

Different, yes. But to say one is worse than the other doesn't really make that much sense. They are very similar.

Of course it's worse, someone laying on the ground with limited vision . It was a cheap shot compared to someone throwing a punch at someone standing in front of them, and least the other guy can see it coming.
How is it not worse ?

Because it's possible it was a complete accident, unlike a punch.

I'm sure it was but maybe you should take another look at it, he was never going to not hit him above the shoulders.
You can think what you like but it was a grub shot .

TPJ given 5 weeks for that tackle? Are you fuckin serious judiciary? How can you fuckin downgrade Burgers tackle on Moylan and not TPJ’s?

You’re a biggest characterless shit out there who are biased blind pricks. Go screw yourselves along with MRC. You guys are the clowns and disgrace to the game.

Locky - how did we end up getting Nick Gabhar as TPJ’s counsel? Why didn’t we use the one who helped Storm grub Slater & Burger boy Sam?
