No need at all for the amateur dramatics by Coote.

Coote is a complete tool for this sort of stuff. It was a yellow card sure but if anyone tackles him above his navel he goes down like he has taken a head shot from a Magnum 45 ("the most powerful handgun in the world") 

I'd have thought refs would be wise to it by now

I think all fan’s are sick of seeing players milking penalties, and id imagine the coaches feel the same way.
But the coaches & fan’s are only annoyed when other clubs players are doing it against their team. If a player goes down as if he’s been shot and is playing in your club, you then hear fan’s say “well your club does it so why shouldn’t ours”. 
Im hoping that at the end of the season the clubs, SL, RFL will meet-up to stamp it out but im not confident that will happen. I hope they scrap the golden point as well.

Yeo I agree with all that except the golden point which I really like

I just can’t get into the Golden Point for league games BB. I totally understand it for cup’s and the play offs, but not for league games. I like seeing the Championship & League 1 tables with all the drawn matches.

I'm genuinely amused that you think St Helens have never deployed, or even thought about, such deceitful behaviour before seeing Warrington do it (I don't recall) last time you played them.

Would you like us to collate a list of incidents to jog your memory?

They forget so quickly don't they?

Tommy Martyn anyone? Chris Joynt's Devon Loch moment?

They have always had their fair share of players who would do whatever was necessary to win.

St Helens are vile Jim, “Same old scousers always cheating” and all that. 

The only thing i didn’t see them do is have a floodlight failure while they were losing (not as far as i can remember anyway).
I definitely don’t remember Joynt having a fishing accident at a Loch or in Devon ?.

Players and coaches push the rules and interpretations and try and get away with what they can all the time. From holding down as long as possible, to time-wasting, to stealing the ball without getting caught. 

The reason this is coming up again is because there are a (small but noticeable) number of Saints fans who are extremely bitter and sore losers. Worse than anyone else in the sport by far. Their Chairman represents them very well.

I agree with the first part but not the second.  Coaches influence how their players and teams behave and if they wanted them to stop milking penalties, they could do that.... fans cannot.

Coaches will be frustrated if their players don't 'win' the penalty count and the vast majority will be delighted if they win that count; however that happened.  As you say, they only complain when the count went againt them.

If we want Rugby League players to stop milking penalties then it is the coaches who have the biggest part to play I'm my view.

Well I guess there's a reason why Wire don't have any bitter & sore losers, its because you don't have any who know what it feels like to actually win a championship 😁

The stuff that came out from the top of the club after they were well beaten in that cup final a couple of years ago was really bad and was rather embarrassing. Whilst reading the cesspit of Redvee is no doubt not really representative, a lot of Saints fans seem perplexingly bitter about lots of things.
