    My 1st suggestion

    Kicking the ball dead all the time gives me the ... so if ball is kicked dead the defending team gets the ball back from the 40 if kicked dead from outside the 40

    2. Stop all of our Journos and commentators bagging the game in every breath. It's getting tiresome.
    [hr]
    I would say a play the ball from where ever it is kicked from. Unless it's closer than the 20.

    I'd add reverse 40-20's too. So 20-40's lol

    Make Ben Barba hop on one foot for the first 10m when performing a kick return. Make Kasiano perform with the cheerleaders, in full costume so he knows what it is like to be spoken to with disrespect.

    Get rid of the double movement rule. It's an outdated rule that is a joke. Anywhere else in the 99.5m of the field you can struggle forward in the tackle and promote the ball, regardless of whether your elbow hits the ground. However get within 0.5m of the tryline and you must instantly freeze every muscle once a hand is laid on you.

    If you can get the ball over the line in the act of the tackle being carried out than T.R.Y. in my book, regardless of how you do it. Will get rid of at least half a dozen ridiculous decisions a year and make the refs life easier. Look at the way Rugby treat it, you can immediately promote the ball in the act of scoring try, works plain and simply.

    Get rid of the stripping rule. If the ball come loose in a tackle is free game.
    [hr]
    Give the benefit of doubt to the defending team. Will stop ridiculous trys being awarded. I'd rather see a try not awarded than see try awarded when there is so much doubt around it.

    - If the ball is out of play, the clock stops.

    - Captains can only speak to refs during a stopped clock. None of this questioning every blow of the whistle "just to give your team a rest."

    You want respect from the ref's, respect them first.

    - If a player is deemed to be diving, penalty reversed.

    - bring back 5 min sin bins so refs aren't afraid of using them as 10 mins is too long

    - enforce the sheparding rule. the dogs got to a grand final on the back of one rarely enforced illegal play.

    - vip status to Canadian fans!

    Separate the origin rule that you must play for Australia and allow the likes of Costigan, Uate to go back to their home countries and play.

    Push for more internationals (countries to play 5 a year) - it's blatant stupidity that the year before a world cup that the two best teams in the world only play twice.
    Setup the Emus and they can tour the likes of the islands
    Same with NZ A.

    Say who the new teams are for 2017 and allow another 2 in for 2020 (new tv deal)

    Release a full draw not favoring one team (broncos - sure they could get bigger crowds on a Sunday but hardly get it)

    Move Origin to a separate weekend enabling for a full rep weekend i.e
    NSW vs Qld
    Png vs Fiji
    Auckland vs Counties
    Samoa vs Tonga
    Cook Is vs Maori

    Make a federation like the RLEF to oversee the area and to make sure the bigger teams aren't bullying the smaller places ie say if Australia takes a player not only should the ARL be paying him his money for the game they played they also pay the developing country money to develop another player to fill there own ranks. It'll stop the waiving the origin carrot in front of the player

    I've been suggesting this for a couple of years.

    I would also scrap the stripping rule, it seems too hard to get consistent decisions, so open slather, if you can't hang on to it, you lose it.

    put me in the video ref box!
    or just get rid of it?

    or let the onfield ref who already has an opinion on the try/no try be the video ref!
    also give them crystal clear 70 inch teles in HiDef

    5. Get rid of Rebecca Wilson. She is to journalism what Josh Massoud is to journalism.

    24. Get rid of News Ltd. It is the global poster child for corrupt and inept journalism.

    Have the video ref make a ruling on forward passes in the try scoring movement.
    One ref on the field.
    Make the line runners raise their flag if a ball goes forward, like in soccer. Make them DO something.

    Leave scrums as they are. (They're really only a re-set of play)

    if the attacking team kick into touch on any tackle but the fifth, the scrum is packed where the ball went out (when in the 0-10meters) not bought back to the ten. So we can have scrums packed on the 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9 meter lines. this could reward a good set and make those bludging wingers do more work potentionally.

    What's the difference between Rebecca Wilson and a catfish?

    One's cold, slimy and has whiskers and the other one is a fish.

    Get rid of the refs. All decisions could be made on the toss of a coin, it'd be bound to be an improvement. Either that, or get the coach of the home team to adjudicate, most decisions seem to go to the home team in any case, except for our home games.

    A serious one - the kick off should be from the 20 meter line rather than half way.
