64 posts in this topic

Taken early plea so gets 2 and is free to play in semi final. Have they even had the hearing yet, it's usually the following week.

The charges are issued on a Monday with the hearing on a Tuesday . EGP by 11am on the Tuesday so they can cancel the tea and biscuits

I can't wait to hear the decision...... "I can't spayke..!!"

"Kev, look we're really sorry you've had to come all the way over here mate. We would have liked to have just swept it under the carpet but its a bit full under there. What we are planning to announce to the media is that it was simply another one of those obstruction things and you lost your balance. Can we pay your petrol money for coming over? Give our love to Gary and tell JP that we are all thinking of him....."

(Sloppy grammar corrected)

Bombally - I was laughing and then realised that this probably happens.

I wonder if Wood will personally wrote to Cas and advise them that its in their best interest for their players to keep all heads away from King Kev.

Moderators, please click on the relevant drop-down box in the settings and put TRL on default 'green crayon' mode for the next week.

I'm all for a bit of banter on here but I think some people need to get this into perspective.? No sendings off in a 16-year top grade career, no-one was injured. Three games down to two with an early guilty plea seems very logical (to those without an axe to grind).

I wouldn't have a problem with that outcome but can see him going for a personal hearing and due to the unblemished track record then either SOS or a 1 match ban at which stage the TRL server will crash

Theres also an argument that Captains should pay larger consequences. How about the Club have to pay a larger financial penalty, maybe the club and trusted associates are not looking after the players mental welfare enough like they should be.

Less match-bans but a heavier fine against the Club would suit me. Plus insurances that Sinfield receives help for his mind and also possibly for the manager and technical staff as well to ensure this won't happen again. Holding free training sessions at some of the non-local clubs would also help to pay for the crime in my opinion (in other words helping kids in non-local clubs would give a broader view for the player). Same goes for Graham Hock would be better as well in my opinion - they are in the same boat as each other. We need to learn some compassion and mercy and understand what made the players act the way they did if we are to take the mature stand.

 

Financial penalties are quite a deterrent I find. Where I work, if a computer fault isn't fixed within X hours, my company gets fined. The employees do not get any direct benefit even if the company does not get fined (they don't receive bonuses in their wage if everything is fixed in time or not). Whats interesting is that this kind of motivation works - just about all the empoyees bend over backwards to make sure the faults are fixed in time due to the constant reminder from the Managers about the cost to the company and reminders that it will cost the company so much financially (employees arn't affected in their wage packet either way). Whether its the feeling of guilt knowing that you cost the company X thousands is more than a burden to bear, I'm not sure but it works. I hope the RFL start fining clubs more (or take a percentage of their profits based on incidents like this).

Is this for real? Did you ever have the privilege to watch Les Boyd, Kevin Tamati, Kelvin Skerrett, Brendon Tuuta, Jim Mills, Kurt Sorensen, Terry Newton, Barrie McDermott et al take the field? Geez, talk about overreaction. This thread is going pretty much to type.

Chase got three matches for a deliberate assault on Ropati which resulted in Ropati sustaining a broken jaw.  If you get three matches for breaking someone's jaw, surely one match will be enough for Kev?

I kind of agree with Trojan - it was as much as head-push as much as a head-butt and no broken bones or flesh-wounds either. Sinfield should consider himself quite lucky. My comments about still stand:-

Zidane was fined 7,500 Swiss francs and handed a three-match ban for his severe head-butt in the 2006 Football World Cup. In comparison then Kevin Sinfield should only get a 1-2 match ban for his head-push/head-butt. Silly man though - KS has a lot to learn.

 

But then I watched it again:-

After watching it again though I would say that it should be 3 match ban - it was more of a head butt than a head-push. Combine that with swearing involved maybe it should be a 4 match ban. Sorry Kev.

 

No, I've watched again and look as though Luke Dorn hit Sinfield in the chest as he was getting up while Sinfield was still riled. Combine with the provation involved and intensity of the match, I go back to saying a 3 match ban should be sufficient - all dues paid for. What say you?

I like a bit of tongue in cheek and a wind up but this has had me rolling around. It's a piece of genius.

Comedy gold right there.

different era and nothing to do with King Kevs red card, what you quote would mean apart from Hock no one would be banned. If he has committed an offence within a graded area he should get the lower end because of the record and his get out of jail card can be used if possible. If the semi was not round the corner it would not raise as big a reaction.

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.

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.
