Why doesn't the 2 million dollar Bunker keep the game clock.:think:

After all, they are the ones with the technology and the direct line to the Refs :wait:

Mountain out of a molehill. Yeah its unfortunate that the NRL official got it wrong, but mistakes happen, put some procedures to make sure it doesn't happen again and move on.

All this finger pointing and talk of losing points is just media trying to create drama...

We're not going to lose points coz doing so would be just the NRL adding to the drama.... surely they're not that stupid...... oh wait.....

When does the 10 minutes start to be timed? If two players are sin binned at the same time does the 10 minutes start when the first player is binned or the second player. Seems they can not be timed individually as it would favour team of the player binned first as they are being timed while the second player is being cautioned not in actual game time.
My understanding is a Sin Binning starts the second play is resumed after the player has been binned.

From what I’ve heard this morning the sideline official did not stop his watch when there was a video ref stoppage and if you see the coverage of frank ponsi talking to that official who was his showing him his stopwatch, so it would seem it’s been a human error on the part of the nrl
But in saying all that the nrl will do everything it can to dock manly the points, why can’t they just say they made a mistake

It’s not really an attack on her appearance if the topic of conversation at hand was her appearance. More of an opinion really.
At what point will we start discussing the appearance of the male commentators?

It’s just the way of the world mate.. I can tell you now that females judge males on their appearance also.

The thing is that she is not a nuetral host, the bias is just too obvious. At least Shirvo (despite being a die hard Manly supporter) was nuetral, and was only ever guilty of showing his excitement at times(barely), which the average supporter wouldnt have even noticed, when Manly were winning. She had her nose out of joint big time last night, and it was cringeworthy to be honest.

*Neutral. I let the first one go, but the OCD kicked in on the second one.

They wouldnt dare dock points for an NRL mistake when at the time those players returned Manly was leading 10-4, two tries to one and not one point was scored in the 1 minute 40 seconds in question. There must also be a question, already raised here as to why Walker was sin binned when he was the victim and threw no punches or even tried to grab and attacker. He may have said something to the other player, but that goes on throughout a football match. So why was he penalised. Api I understand. The League admin would face significant excrement in its face if it tries to penalise Manly. The time keeper allowed the players back on even despite the complaint by the Storm rep. What could a Manly rep have done once the players were sent on the field. Nothing, just like the reaction to the Storms complaint. This was a mistake, but one totally in the hands of the League. All they can do is apologise to the Storm, but point out that it made no difference to the score.

Why doesn’t the bunker run a timer like the NHL with power plays? It’s basically the same thing so just copy what they do exactly, problem solved.

All I hear on Silvertails 99% of the time are detrimental comments about the appearance of Rothfield, Zorba and Greenburg.

Yes but mainly about their collective incompetence not their looks (although to be fair there is some of that)

I know...it is just not something I am overly comfortable with.

I mean I have a daughter and whilst I know people will talk about them like this it is not something that I find overly comfortable....and not something that I would do

Glad you reminded me. Now my feelings about Rothfield and Greenberg (I've got nothing personally against Zorba) is that....
