Was a bit of a snorefest until the last 20, scary how much influence the refs can have, game improved massively when they put the whistle away.
Also why did the inbredlanders get off the avatar bet?

Chambers was decent but you can add Norman to that list
I don't rate him much, think his time has come to an end, really poor miss on Tedesco with Cherry-Evans, you don't let a guy like that run with that much space, never moved in on him and he scored.

your right about Chambers, if he focused more on his footy rather than been a prick QLD would be better off

Was thinking the very same thing when he decided to throw the ball at Cooks head. Just stupid.

Don't think cook was involved in the tackle either, was Wighton i think, unecessary. Poor old cook, copped it from Farrah as well when it was dirty burgess that took to his eye.

Totally agree with you, it is Origin. I was more thinking along the lines of,
Close game, series on the line, refs blowing for penalties left right and centre, and he goes and does that.

nah, not soft, just not a fan of his and some refs could have penalised him for that dumb play.

Was a great game to watch, first half with all the penalties was starting to get boaring, but the close game overall was great to see.
Could have gone either way which is what I enjoy the most. These blow outs regardless of which team does it, takes away the excitement for me.
Bring on next year, should be another thriller.

Does anyone else think the NRL and the sport of league is the most inconsistently officated sport in the world? How do you blow 12 penalties in the first half and almost none in the second for almost the same style of play?

Not only the most inconsistent but also the most influenced unfortunately. Still can’t decide if it’s incompetence or corruption

Someone post an avatar for our QLD fans please. I think Rizzah Rizzah had one? I'll change it tomorrow for them.

Apologies for not changing the QLD supporters after Blues win in game 2. Kinda felt sorry for them. Poor innocent naive souls thought they were going to win against the might of the NSW Blues.

;)

If your manipulating a game to get an outcome (keep the score line close) is that corrupt?

Only if it is done unevenly.

If every game is made close by the refs, in the same manner as every other game, then it's just a part of the comp that all teams have to deal with.

It just means every team needs to be setting up to play their best footy in the last 10 mins to win the grandstand finish. And goal line defense becomes the most critical aspect of being the best footy team, so you can defend against all the catch up penalties when you're in the lead.

One thing I will say is that it gives the refs a lot of cover that they can manipulate games under. If everyone is expecting the refs to bend the rules, because reasons, then when they bend a few rules to swing a game unfairly it's much harder to spot.

So all in all, the refs playing catch up is great for getting new fans into the sport, as there are more tight games, but it makes the game ultimately unsatisfying for the long time fans, as it makes the refs actions very predictable and boring, and it even leads to some fans going a little crazy.

It reminds me of a doco I saw about Scientology for some reason.
