After frustrating week after week of referee mistakes, it is hard to visualise intelligent people continuing to rationalise the game of Rugby League. It is no good band-aiding the game when the referees, week after week, continue to inject their prejudices into their decisions. The rules make it hard for the dull referee to adjudicate because such brain activity requires a modicum of intelligence. We see referees blowing hard whistles every week at the play the ball. We witness the unedifying spectacle of the American-induced video ref screen and the long wait for the TRY or NO TRY decision ... and the mindless reaction of the crowd as TRY is awarded.
It is time to apply some intelligence to our game. If there is a problem in the tackle, then get rid of the problem instead of relying on referees to go beyond their capabilities in logically deciding what to do.
It just takes brains.
