    I read that the NRL have threatened to deduct points from the club that next has misbehaving fans....
    What rubbish. If they were serious they would take points off the Dogs immediately. This club has form. Every time there is off-field trouble the Dogs are involved.
    Why give them another warning? Two words: Todd Greenturd!

      Agreed. They need to set a timeframe on how long they need to behave for. (ie if another offence in two years) as it is obvious they have wiped the slate on previous misdemeanors. The same idle threat was issued to them the last time they carried on like imbeciles at ANZ, plus there was the time they ran amok through Parramatta.
      Des can't have it both ways. He can't be making sly, smug jokes about how he is going to get around criticising referees by calling them Voldemort, and then say it's not what his club is about when his players carry on like A grade a*#eholes to the referees face.

      What's the bet that the punishment is minimal.

      It's not their go after all. Seems to be a sufficient defence nowadays.

      For sure the NRL will do nothing. The dogs will get a slap on the wrist. Nothing more. As if Greenburg would do anything against them

      I agree. I highly doubt that the dogs will be deducted points. maaybe another suspended fine but the threats will be flying around, the dogs will do the mea culpa's and they'll all move on.

      The fans....wont go to gaol like the papers infer. Probably a ban from the stadium.

        Points loss is ridiculous unless the offence is by a player on the field.
        No one can 100% contain a drunk in a crowd@:cool:

        However Graham & Klemmer are a 100k fine easy. Manly and Scumos were fined for a melee, no Ref was abused :cool:

        All a Club can do is bar someone after the event.

        Greenturd will be on our screens all week . He would be miffed that changing the Ref's jersey colour , was not the master stroke that he assumed :p

        Look if they dock us points then so be it, not much I as a supporter can do about it.

        One thing that needs to be looked into is how the people in charge of pre game entertainment thought having Tim Omaji aka Timoatic perform before the game. I wasn't even at ANZ for the game but reckon I threw 10 bottles at the TV whilst he was on.

            I dont think you can strip points from a team for crowd behaviour but a hefty fine should be a no brainer and a bond if it happens again a crowd lock out and only members from the visiting side can attend would hurt a lot more

              You don't think as behavior modification other fans and friends would pull the misbehaving ones in. If they're true fans they won't want losses and lost points are equal to losses. Maybe the club will do better to control it with security if they cop a harsh penalty. It would certainly motivate clubs to control it

              There are paid Security People and CCTV, its their job to control the crowd - they failed to do so.

              Other Fans are intimidated of aggressive people and would not put themselves at risk of assault.@:cool:
