Gallen was saying there should be no microphone feed from the field to the TV. That no-one needs to know what is said on the field. Weidler then started saying that the fans have a right to know and it's part of the entertainment.How can they add another charge?
He was charged with Grade 3 Contrary Conduct wasn't he?
That's the highest I think.
Surely they've had all the evidence and charged him accordingly.
If they haven't all the evidence then why put out the charge?
Does that mean the NRL MRC/judiciary haven't done their due diligence in regards
to the match officials reports and put out the charge anyway?
Why are they so beholden to the media that drives "public outrage"?
As Gal said last night on 100% Footy - why does anyone need to know what he said?
He said it on the field to the match officials, no one in the crowd would have heard it, so
why is it published what he said?
Funny how a few weeks ago when Latrell was crying leaving the field and in the dressing room,
when the media probed and asked they were told that what goes on in the dressing room should stay there. No more follow up but this, we'll keep digging to promote outrage.
Then Weidler brought up that the guy that abused Ivan Cleary after the Tigers-Panthers game is actually a journalist. Weidler's description was that he had given Cleary an "almighty spray". So Gould asked Weidler to reveal what he said. Weidler realised he'd sucked himself into a trap and refused to reveal anything further. Despite several digs from Gould and Gallen he refused. Gould closed with a sarcastic "perhaps there should be microphones to record the journalists".
