    firstly the players union must take a stand here for the players and confront and fight the NRL . Players are having the reputations, careers and earnings threatened by the grading system, which increases a charge if you chose to contest and lose.

    Secondly the clubs should fight the NRL on payment. IF a legal team is engaged and the player wins then the NRL must foot the bill as they made the error. This includes a down grade

    And a revolving panel is not good enough.Consistency, consistency, consistency Same panel all year, maybe 1 reserve in case someone loses an eye. Its a job , be there every week or do something else

    Make all interested parties submit an application and a brief to outline the role, addressing key criteria

    Then at weeks end a video report is made available online showing why this tackle was suspended and the differences. Accountability by going on record to support the actions taken

    And all this needs to be implemented yesterday. Its just not up to scratch. The NRL and the panel need to demonstrate they have the ability and skills to manage the process, not just the power

    Adopt the NFL system. Fine players for most offences & do it via a mid week media release.

    I'm sick of each Monday being replays of the bad incidents of rugby league from the weekend games. Whilever they are showing offences the media aren't showing the good tries and stories from the weekend.

    One day the NRL might work out they are in the entertainment business.

    Making suspensions and foul play the focus of every Monday's media coverage is just plain stupid & bad marketing. "Who will think of the children" they cry all the time, but then every Monday all we see is replay after replay of bad incidents!!!! Dumb NRL dumb.

    Suspending players from playing doesn't help NRL put on its best matches. Heavy fines work just as well as suspensions as an incentive not to commit foul play.

    Yes please. It just works so much better. Given, the NFL do take a fairly laissez-faire attitude towards rough play, but with the recent efforts to stamp out head clashes they've shown that their method works best.

    Having so many players suspended every week is just detrimental to the entertainment level of the league.
