Radford on bailey, straight red. The Wigan v saints game Straight red. Poore and Farrell, straight red. Poores second red for punching. There's lots of others but I feel I'm being dragged into an arguement with the political correct brigade. My worst nightmare.

Are we trying to bring back something that's apparently still here and never went away?

In super league the ref's send people off for punching, straight red. That's what I'm against.

Is that clear enough for the pretend intellects on here.

Did you watch tonight's game?

No, why?

Players were fighting and didn't get sent off, not even sin-binned.

Long live hicks then is what I say

But you are asking for this to be brought back but it already exists, unless you want something else brought back?

 

If so what is it you want bringing back?

Ration books, and those really big mobile phones.

Bring back the biff is a phrase. The crux of the argument is that we want to see what happened last night as the norm.

Robert hicks used commen sense and let both players off with a telling off. It isn't what normally happens though before you's start.

It is the norm.

 

In fact the only abnormality is your insistence that it isn't.

Great decision Robert Hicks.

 

Indeed, fantastic game management.  I thought Hicks had an absolutely great game, he kept on giving feedback to players to ensure they knew what decision he was making and why.  Exactly what you want from a ref.

 

The "biff" in question was a small amount of niggle and was very handbags-esque.  Hicks explained exactly why he gave the penalty the way he did so Salford couldn't argue and then made it clear to both players that because it had been a good natured game no further action necessary, if it had been bubbling for a while I expect they both would have got 10 minutes to cool off.

Larry it's quite obvious that we wouldn't have a beer together, as you probably drink bitter lemon.

I probably don't need to watch as many games as you, as my eyes work.

What about harsher punishments that pyramid from the bottom upwards? Or is that double standards? A 'bit of biff' is ok now and again, which happens, but at the same time these players are held up as heroes to kids, and I don't want amatuer kids games thinking it's ok to fight, they want to play... so perhaps put them off fighting until the general consesus is they're adults and "more mature".

 

Sod those who say it'll teach them to toughen up or the equivalent I read on twitter regarding Origin, kids get bullied and deal with it in the playground, etc. in their own way, taking it onto a pitch isn't productive, especially as it's about teamwork and respect. Fine, be a little sh*t who gets excluded for fighting, no excuse to inflict it on the pitch though as I assume they want to play.

I'm not sure you'd be considered sober enough to get served.

I don't think its your eye he is concerned about.
