    The response of Annersley and the NRL to a spate of headbutts and eye gouges over recent weeks is ... .. wait for it ..... I can't make this **** up ........ Annersley has vowed to stamp out the bloodchilling practise of boot throwing ...

    Any person that witnessed the distressing images of QLD'er Hunt .. throwing a boot off the field in SOO will welcome this cracktown .... one fan cried "no more please, my children watch the game and the sight of that boot flying through the air still haunts them" ....

    FMD .... numbnuts and punchies run the place ...

      Little steps.

      which you generally do when you've lost a boot.


      edit: The trouble is, the nrl think they have gotten everything right with regards to headbutts and eye gouges, yet there's no 'rule' in place for the boot throwing, so that what's they 'fix' (because common sense meant refs were just so powerless to do anything about it...)


      followed by long lunch, pay rise, a few more jobs for the boys and this weeks anti manly meeting

              It took them 30 years to eradicate the bootlace tackle due to a the fear of bootlace theft. Now they can safely move on to the whole shoe. Its a mighty win for rugby league and the wider community in general

              The ivory backscratchers will be in smugness overdrive from NRL supremos

                These clowns should be running a circus, not a professional sport.....at least they have their priorities in order -
                Life ban for throwing a boot
                Maguire gouging out an eye - play on

                    Gave you a winner, could have gave you agree and an hilarious funny thing too, if it wasn't such an outrages decision in comparison it would be just that !!!

                    By all means lets watch these players with eyes hanging out of the sockets and whatever damage from headbutt, but if they lose their boot, YOUR OFF !!

                      Jokes aside, I'm actually happy for a penalty to be given for a player throwing another's boots away.

                      It is unsporting

                        I bet Bellache is about to instruct his players to run on the field with loose boots so that they can get penalties . . .

                          James Maloney may as well retire now, he'll be rubbed out of the game with this rule

                                  It was already an offense that was explicitly outlawed, the refs just weren't enforcing it.

                                    Back in the good old days, you could throw boots.....while you were still wearing them.

                                      What's next? If you throw 3 passes in row, a handover with ball will occur? or you have to pass the ball from dummy half, if you dare to run yourself it will be a penalty or turnover? hmmm

                                      Theoretical questions here; imagine if an opposition player tackles DCE, Taupau, Turbo's, etc, steals their shoe and tosses it into the crowd.
                                      The boot falls in your lap, by the time you look up, the trainer has already run a new pair out for the player.
                                      Would you be overly upset with your gift?
