    Warren, the Fox commentator for those without Fox, asked why don't the video refs have HD tv's in their little room?
    It's unbelievable that they don't. The clarity is way better, sharper and those difficult decisions like the Farah/Inglis try, would surely be that bit easier with HD tv's. Don't tell me the NRL can't afford them, HD tv's are super cheap.

    I thought they already got them just after Harrigan awarded THAT try to Gasnier against us then used the picture quality as an excuse.

    If we are going to persist with video refs, which we shouldn't, we must insist they can't open the windows because common sense keeps flying out of them decision-time.

      They should get Full HD 3D TVs and the referees can wear 3d glasses.

      If they get better quality screens that will eliminate one of their excuses for making mistakes. Don't want that now do we

      He may have one of those little portable containers in the comm box for any urgent situations that may arise.

      I'm afraid Warringah Council would need about $500,000 to make that happen Bob. $480,000 for a set of community surveys and consultations, with the remainder to build an enlarged plywood box for the video ref.

        Glad there is the need to ensure we didn't miss your wit the first time. Don't forget to wash your hands.
