Re: Gold Coast Titans 2019

Relocations don't work. They need a hard **** to come in and improve the fundamental structures of the club. I don't think much of Griffin but he might actually be what the club needs.

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

Ok, let me explain. It was a dangerous tackle and I don't believe I ever said it didn't deserve the punishment it received. We have a different perspective on how dangerous it is comparatively. I believe a lot of these flipping above the horizontal tackles - where the player can put his hand out and...

All that aside, and even through your own admission that is what ? 6 out of 4 years... out of a 20 year window. I know I don't need to explain statistics to you?

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

You guys are spending way too much time on this There really is no need to spend anymore time on it either. Any study would accept the results of a four year trial where the accepted figure of tackles in the spectrum is 5 or 6 (not sure which Nick settled on). But that works out to be over 1 per ye...

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

How can you call some of them immediately out of scope simply because it's a grade 2 when the very first one (Peachey) is a grade 2. Share your thoughts on the McLean tackle which was also a grade 2. A terrible accident no doubt but the most dangerous in the NRL era from an outcome perspective. All ...

I didn't include them, because there is a lot. I thought I explained why I had selected 2 and above, despite Nick conceding that the Thaiday tackle in the clip - was in the spectrum - yet graded a 1.

You said we wouldn't be able to find 10 in the time you had watched the game, And you're still yet to do that. Now the number is 30? Where the hell will these goalposts end up? No, the number is still 10. I'm just making the point that even if the number WAS 30, and you could find 30 (and you cant,...

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

The first two I concede but the last one (origin) is by far the worst. One tackler lifts him up and the second tackler drags him straight back down head first. Anything could have happened there. That's 3 in 2016 and a 'fan video' is hardly definitive of the season as a whole. So a minimum of 3 in ...

At 0.29 Peachey flips Blair (this was also after the whistle). Very next tackle Thaiday on a Manly player.

A player that is tilted above horizontal that then has the ability to stretch out and feel the ground is nowhere near as dangerous as a player who is lifted and flipped.
