    This NRL judiciary system is a joke and an embarrassment to Rugby League.

    Unintentional kick by non Broncos player - 2 weeks

    Intentional kick by Broncos player - 1 week

    They are constantly inconsistent, NRL really want Broncos to win do they...

              They want a Broncos v sharks final with maybe a storm raiders backup with Broncos to win, that's just how the script is written. Broncos lost last year and they need redemption, how else do you fulfill a drama filled script, throw in Bennett and my god it's a good story.

              Anyway it's been sharks v Broncos since about round 7 in the NRL book

              Well Dan, it ain't gonna be a Broncs v Sharks GF this year because the winner of Broncs v Nth Qld will play Sharks to get in the GF.

                When Bennett was asked in the Presser about Roberts being charged he said, "I doubt that, I saw what he did, it's never going to be a charge, that "
                Haha :)

                    Don't worry - if history has taught us anything it's that these idiots will offend again. It's only a matter of time and we still have a bunch of weekends before the season starts. Just hope no innocent people get hurt...

                    True

                    The annoying thing is....because the city of brisbane protect their own 'up there' the article says the club in question wont release the footage which can mean the implication is that the evidence is not so flattering for Roberts.

                    However, instead of the nrl going...ok well with no video, you're suspended for 4 weeks, they simply wring their hands and say there's nothing they can do (and breathe a sigh of relief.)

                    It's gutless.

                    But, as @Mark from Brisbane says :NRL = No Real Leadership

                      James Roberts seems to be a rare case like Todd Carney where it simply does not matter how many times they stuff up and how many chances they get, they cannot avoid trouble.

                      If he was an average player he would be out of the game by now. Just ask Steve Irwin - Todd Carney's mate at the Raiders who was Carney's fall-guy & sacked in 2007.
