    Does anyone else think Blair was biting Glenn Stewart's shoulder towards the end of the *first* brawl? Have a look.

    Yep, Glen showed great restraint in the first place, no doubt

    Maybe that is the magic bullet that is Glenn's defense. It did look like Blair had his chompers into him but hard to tell. You would think when Glenn was binned that he would have said to the ref at the time and showed him the marks. Not hopefull of this one but anything to clutch at straws at the moment.

    Not sure about the biting but I still cannot work out why Glen was sin binned when he clearly wasn't third man in and he didn't throw any punches in the first brawl.

    Blair jogged after glen to catch up with him and obviously said somethign to incite Glen. These must be the loopholes the club will use to get his charge downgraded

    I don't understand why the penalty was given to us because of Hinchcliffe's elbow to Lussick but Hinchcliffe wasn't charged.

    Just saw Laurie Daley on Fix Sports news, he seems to be still quite on Manlys side on this one. Went through the footage along with the ref comments at the time, interesting

    He must have thought that Gifty's shoulder was a pillow that he was bitting into.

    Seeing as though we are going to show up incorrect referee's decisions, now might be a good time to get back the 2 games we were screwed by those same officials.
    Glenn Stewart free to play and Manly given an additional 4 points to claim the MP.

    The refs are only human like all of us, they try hard to get it 100% correct but occasionally there are mistakes. We all accept that playing every type of sport.

    Every rugby league team and its supporters believe that the refs have an agenda against them - Manly is no different

    Unless there is some angle that we are not privvy to looking in from the outside, the "ref's mistake" seems be the only reason that the manly legal team will offer up for the not guilty plea ie incorrect referee decision to send Glenn to the sinbin in the first instance.

    Will this be enough in the judiciary's eyes to exonerate Glenn from what went on with his decison to start punching in the second melee? Who knows...or is the tactic to get a downgraded charge of a couple of weeks because of this ref error....could be

    PS: Canteen Worker I would never dream of suggesting that our dear David Gallop acts in any way similar to Adolf Hitler :heart: hmmm wonder what he looks like with a mo and hair brylcreamed over the one side

    "Sir, I feared for my safety as soon as I saw this massive bloke chasing after me" "He had already assaulted one of my team mates and I felt he would attempt to do the same with me"
    "What choice did I have?"
