    I just wondered how many times the games rules have been changed immediately after Manly benefits from it. I can think of 3 times.

    1. BOD It was in for years and as soon as Keiran Foran gets the Benefit of it against cowboys in last years semi they scrapped it.

    2. Obstruction. Bulldogs won a minor premiership using it then they made it black and white, Jamie Lyon gets obstructed and Tigers get no Try. Rule change next week.

    3. Send Off's/Sin Bin's. Richie Faaoso is alowed to play on after 2 accidental soft spear tackles, and a week later suprise suprise Rule Change!!!!

    Is it because there are so many Manly haters when we get an advantage that there is public outcry and the squeeky wheels get thier oil.

    Or do i have my tin foil hat on.

    You forget making more use of the sin bin.

    Ron Gibbs changed the rules on kickers.

    Possibly tin foil hat but I'm wearing one too.
    They definitely change rules if Manly deceisions aren't to their liking.

    We'd have to ask our filthy vermin "mates" if they see it happen with their clubs too. I think it may just be us, to a large extent.

    Maybe because we are playing in the high profile games and everyone pays attention to what goes on.

      I can think of another one but it was for the best. The attacking the legs of the kicker, Kosef had that mastered ironically he retired early due to 4 Knee Recons. Hard to believe Beaver and him come on the scene together and beaver is still going. Wouldnt it be great to start a campaign to bring Beaver back for 2 games just to beat that Gimp Terry Lambs record..

      If we win the GF this year we can expect the Manly not allowed to win any more Grand Finals rule to be brought in in 2014.

        Don't forget the other rule changes that showed Manly have been screwed..

        Fa'aoso shoulder charges Harrison and they have an accidental head clash where Harrison is concussed. They charge Fa'aoso and give him a 4 week suspension that is reduced to 1 on appeal....
        Then Danny Buderus does a shoulder charge on Blake Ferguson the next week and has a head clash which breaks Ferguson's cheekbone. No penalty, not put on report and no charge laid.

        That was disgusting how they swept that exact same incident under the carpet and then after Buderus not copping even a penalty, they changed that rule again.

        Then, Matai hits George Burgess with a screamer of a tackle which would be a contender for tackle of the year and sister Sam comes in and starts throwing punches. That has always been at least a penalty, sin bin and even a report and charge. NOTHING!!!!

        Another rule for us and others. We lost an origin series because chicken legs cecchin sin binned Jennings for what Sam did. His action has always been dealt with. Souths seem to be a protected species at the moment!

        One rule for us and one rule for everyone else. I can cop the hatred but not the unfair treatment.

        Yeah I reckon the interchange limit was due to bozo's tactics in the 90s. He'd bring players on and off depending on the tempo. How many on the bench in the 96 gf? I know all coaches did it, but bozo pushed it hard to get cliffy quality time, and tierney to run amok in short bursts.

        Bozo's tactics also got the head bin scrapped in the 80s. If a guy had a head knock he could be temporarily replaced. Bozo used this to inject Paul Shaw into games. His cameo in the 87 gf springs to mind. Ron Gibbs went off into the head bin, giving shaw a run, then Rambo miraculously recovers and gets to come back on after a rest.

          Penalty goals from scrums banned after 1976 grand final Wombat kicked Manly home on less tries.

          WHEN we win the comp this year dispite all the media writing us off and the NRL disabling us with rule changes and BS suspensions, penalties etc etc, THEY will change the GF rules to become a best out 3 games series eg origin, basketball, baseball like. WOULD NOT PUT PAST THEM

          Thats to direct for them, they like medeling behind the scenes trying not to be the bad guy.
          That's too direct for them jono, they like medeling behind the scenes not to look like the bad guys then cllaiming its in the interests of the game. really what they mean is ' its in the interest of screwing Manly'

          The banning of tackles in mid air was because of us too.
          And that new rule how Matai gets suspended if he tackles someone...
