    NO Greenburg you are WRONG-STOP hijacking the time issue last Sunday

    Todd, please stop being a politician and please stop trying to hijack the time keeping issue at Brookie last Sunday at the Panthers game to add to your agenda of killing Brookie and all suburban grounds to deliver your utopia of all games at nice big stadia like crap ANZ and semi crap Allianz. your motives are SO obvious. footy fans love Brookie, Leichardt Oval. so cater for it. employ some tools who can press the on/off button on a stopwatch.
    stop thinking like a bean counter and listen to the fans and look at the reality 18,500 who turned up on a Sunday afternoon. oh, lets not start on about Sunday afternoon games, that would be considering the fans way too much.

    They're going on about it like it decided the outcome of the game. Another (what was it 12 second or something?) Wouldnt have helped the panthers at all. Snake smashed it over the sideline then the panthers would have had to pack a scrum pretty fast. Then soward would have had to snap a 45m field goal from set defence off a scrum and thats never going to happen. What a joke

    'There have been at least three timekeeping issues this season, but the most high-profile was during last year's qualifying semi-final between Cronulla and North Queensland at Allianz Stadium.' Plus the Scumos rort against the Drags was at AAMI :mad:

    Greenturd and his cronies are a cancer on the game we love :exclamation:

    Toddy is right. The atmosphere would have been heaps better at an empty stadium where human error does not occur. We love you Toddy. You are awesome.

    It does take guts to push an agenda and pedal outright and clear BS with it, that's actually pretty ballsy

    RE: NO Greenburg you are WRONG-STOP hijacking the time issue last Sunday

    Ask other teams where they would rather win an away game. In a big empty stadia or in front of 20,000 passionate Manly fans at Brookie?
    Then you could even ask the fans what they prefer.

    It would be good to get some business people involved that actually like Rugby league

    I thought Gallop was bad, but Greenburg is a complete and utter moron. There is a clear agenda here by him to undermine suburban grounds, I don't know what is driving it though. TV demands ?? Big stadia kickbacks ??

    These guys running the NRL are a joke. How could they come up with this idea as a solution to the time keeping issue. This is just a cop-out.

    They should do a thorough review and actually fix the issue. My suggestion would be to mike up the ref (which he already is) and time keeper and then it would be very easy for the ref to tell the time keeper when to start or stop the clock.

    You are a dead set embarrassment Greenturd.

    The games history has been built on so called suburban grounds. Piss off back to Belmore, you are a blight on the game!!

    The Riff wasted time when they had the lead, nuff said!

    Let's see Monghead put his case on all these issues to the fans directly. Tired of him hiding behind reactive media announcements.

    I love rugby league but there's so much pollution these days. Let's get rid of technology - back to sunday games and packed grounds because sunday shopping hadn't happened yet, and the only updating of scores was to hear over the ground announcer!

    You are so out of touch Greenturd, just crawl back under your rock.
