It wasn't legal, merely unpunished.How was this legal even in 2007?
Crocker was an A grade cat and that night summed it up. Took out our best player so called legally and it won the drizzle what it turned out a tainted grand final.Penrith last night reminded me of our steely resolve in 2008 which I believed was partly generated by this incident....
Imagine how many weeks he would have got for that tackle in 2022!
Deserved send off & 12 weeks suspension.Imagine how many weeks he would have got for that tackle in 2022!
Watching it at the game - it was an immediate send off. What a joke that it wasn’t even penalised.
Yep 100 percent on mad dog as well.Agree, just as Mad Dog should have been sent off in the 1997 GF.
I watched it in the Sports bar at Manly Leagues with my wife back then J1, what a game and what a celebration when the players got back. All of the bitterness from 2007 was washed away that night, got back to where we were staying at the North Head Barracks Hotel back then in the wee sml hours of the morning..lol.It was a horrible feeling on the bus back to the northern beaches that day. made worse by the fact that the cheating scum robbed us of a premiership that was truly ours as we discovered later. I also went the next year to the 40 - 0 the next year. What a contrast.
