Chiefs vs Lions



  • But we do enjoy it when our team 'plays to the ref'. It's only offside if it's called by the ref'. It's only off your feet if called by the ref'. Where is the line?



  • Are the Lions telling the truth now?

    They named a side, the coach goes home under unusual circumstances, the new coach puts out a different side.

    Is this story just covering for internal conflict?





  • I agree with the play what's infront of you outlook on this issue, but I also think it's bad sportsmanship. At the end of the day it doesn't matter too much coz the Chiefs played like shit and Harris and Retallick were both injured not rested so it doesn't have an impact anyway.



  • @Duluth did anyone really see Marx get on the plane?

    There must be rules around naming of the squad, otherwise why do it externally, why not just say this is our 23...

    Almost has a "match fixing" ring about it. Wonder if the gambling agancies have detected any unusual betting patterns on the match?



  • @Stargazer @nzzp what about dummy runners or dummy passes? They're a tad dishonest eh, we should probably ban them.

    Nope it's on a spectrum. Gray areas are gray... Deliberate diving is a different thing altogether. Kind of like blood gate... That shit isn't sportsmanship at all

    So a bit like resting your best prop for 15 or so minutes then bringing him back on when the replacement gets injured?



  • Our forwards were absolute meh for most of that match. TBH I thought we would lose by more when I saw the starting side.
    But we really need to learn how to defend at close quarters I lost count how many attacks came from straighttheough the middle of the ruck. Where were our guard dogs FFS?
