I would love to know what LD said or did to get that reaction from KS, He's not known for anything like that, I reckon most people will be expecting a light sentence because it's Leeds ( taking into account JP's recent let off, Myself i hope it is light , I don't condone head butting in any way, but it was never going to do any serious damage, There are far worse head shots that are far more potentially dangerous , I think if King Kev had wanted to hurt him he could have made a better job than that.

I just don't get how his charge and punishment can be in a national publication before the charge has even been brought..........

Because we can Mama!! Would you like make a verdict - won't be long now :)

 

Whatever punishment is dished out by the RFL, I will accept it whatever it is so there'll be nothing more to say as far as I'm concerned.

The first error is believing anything written in the #### has any remote correlation with the truth! :rolleyes:

Maybe, just maybe, they got someone with experience of past RL disciplinary decisions on similar offences, then looked at the footage without applying club prejudice (of either the "hang him!" or "let him off scot free" or "it's all a conspiracy" variety) and took an informed guess?

 

What am I saying? That's just crazy-talk...

I have seen the arguments for lower sentence because of his previous good record, but is there also not a counter argument saying that because of his standing in the game (England/GB and Leeds Captain) and the totally unprovoked nature of the incident, that he should receive a stronger penalty as an example?

Was it totally unprovoked,Dorn seemed to be spitting a fair amount of abuse his way.

I would have thought that Leeds as a club would be on thin ice citing unpleasantries aimed in their direction.
I think the disciplinary panel is one of the few things that works well in our game - if they say 2/3 games that'll do for mine.

I doubt Leeds will have used that as a reason,just countering the "totally unprovoked",we don't know what has gone on between the two players in the rest of the game leading up to the headbutt.Sinfield has committed the offence and been punished.

Seems fair to me. He was also dismissed from the field so it is 2 games plus the n minutes he was off. 

 

Can we move on now? :unsure:

yes we do, dorn was running rings around sinfield and sinfield didn't like it and lost his rag, end of, two games is about right.

actually, Sinfield started the debate with Dorn. Dorn was shouting to the ref, probably appealing for a yellow card, which wound Sinfield up.

So totally unprovoked.Dorn didn't say anything to Sinfield before contact was made?It certainly looked like he did.

no, Dorn shouted to the ref, Sinfield then started shouting at Dorn, Dorn was provoked. Imho.
Provocation isnt a great dedence for Sinfield, not that he needs it either.
