Who is reporting that?

It's total bs how a young player from any team can have a good game or two and there's already talk of another club chasing him.

Smith has played 2 games and is contracted for another 2 years. Other teams can *lima lima lima duck* off. Sharks have Brailey as well so they can *lima lima lima duck* off even more.

Bigger fish to fry


Yes , Nacho , it is a business. However in this instance it was a total about-face from what had previously happened, even earlier this season. It is very disrespectful to those of us who pay our hard-earned and go to the games. We get less "vision" than those at home.

There is an immense amount of promotion before the game and at half time. The players have logos all over their uniforms. We are entitled to actually have the 80 minutes focused on re game itself.

I see an extraordinary cynicism in what effectively was : " We will now interrupt your enjoyment and information of this game , because we know you are looking up here wanting to know about this game, to tell you about the next game ".

'Nacho - in that context it makes absolutely no sense at all to use that time for promotion. Sorry to be so strong on this , but it was extremely frustrating. For example, I had no idea until I saw the replay at home whether Kaufusi had committed a chargeable offence on Scott Bolton, yet those at home would have known he had simply fallen into the tackle.

Felise may still face a charge. Bolton was obviously falling and Felise could do little to avoid the contact after committing to the tackle, but that hasn't stopped the MRC before...

there is nothing else that needs to be said except for

IM PROUD

Proud of the club and the players

Proud of Jesse being Captian (I heard the leadership group voted with the players to let him back in ...not sure if that's true)
Proud of the young guys stepping up and
Just proud

How loud was the booing of the refs at the end of the game - reckon that would have to be the loudest yet

Why wasn't a penalty given for interference with the restart at 83 minutes?

He may not of said much about the referring performance in his media conference, for obvious reasons as he would of been fined, but i know someone who is an official and was at ground level after the game on saturday night and they have told me that Bellamy gave the refs a huge spray in the tunnel after the game had finished.

What he didnt realise though was the refs were still miked up, so it may of recorded what he said, so this could become news soon to the general public as they are investigating it.

But i am happy to know that Bellyache thinks they did a s*** job as we all think they did on saturday night and let them know it in his passionate way.

If they investigate Bellamy, they need to investigate Cummins to. Check if he had money on the game, I would not be the least bit shocked if he did.
