This is the way to treat coaches who disrespect match officials.


Recommended Posts


Having coaches interviewed straight after a match and being asked by the media to comment on specific incidents in the game that went against them is totally unfair. I recall a while back Justin Hodges was asked for a comment and Wayne Bennet quickly stepped in and told the guy he was being totally unfair to ask that. The media should not be allowed to ask for comment on officials then this wouldn't be an issue. ☹️

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.

Maybe have refs interviewed about the players trying to cheat during the game ?

“Particularly disappointing was the sustained criticism of match officials over the course of the week."

I think most people would accept that to a degree some comments made in the heat of the moment aren't always going to be the most considered but to continue the criticism in the days that follow is IMO worthy of being pulled up over.

Peter V'landys is a go getter with loads of energy. Something Ralph Rimmer lacks on both counts, and also lets not forget that Peter V'landys is CEO of NSW horse racing as well. If he has a problem he sorts it unlike Ralph Rimmer who kicks problems into the long grass until he can't avoid dealing with them

Some Coaches need to make their players fully aware of the laws of the game, as it seems with the stupid offences the players commit at times they are not aware of certain laws of the game

He also has real executive authority which has never been granted to the RFL CEO.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Lets remember that without match officials we don't have a game and they need to be treated with respect.  The RFL is always looking for match officials and ir anybody thinks they can do better contact the RFL and they will put you on a course

He also has a situation where the sport is fashionable enough, highly regarded has constant press and media coverage and support from people high in government and I doubt he'd last 2 minutes 30 seconds in the job here.

You still need to have the integrity and judgement to make the decision. The RFL/SL condones players challenging and arguing with refs throughout every game and coaches complaining about refs after games. This feeds all the way through the game and does it no credit.
