You been taking lessons from Nick in rudeness?

I was definitely sad to see James Woolford depart the club, and he did show a lot of potential at junior level. He left for the Storm at junior level and played with the Storm's U20s premiership winning team. He didn't come through as a first grade player, but James Woolford was also making junior rep teams. The reason I thought it was sad at the time that he left the Raiders was because we hadn't had the opportunity to even try to transition him to firsts.

Matt Frawley departing? Didn't worry me: http://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopic ... 5#p1161515

So those "in the know" rate Bateman. Fine. They also rated Matt Allwood two years ago. I didn't. Everyone has an opinion. It'll often be wrong. It might also often be right. I was going on about Jarrod Croker, Anthony Milford, all sorts of players before you'd even heard of them.


Rudeness? It's called having a counter opinion

You know, I don't have a dog in this fight, but for the record that is just about the most grossly unreasonable comment you could make about GE.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

I'm also not sure why TPJ is stuck back in the 20's. It seems like a lesson in humility more than football.

TPJ is in the 20s purely because of his age. You'll see more of him in mounties and maybe some first grade next year. Batemen is right near the end of his 20s career so he needs some exposure to make the next step.
Personally though i'd have him in mounties.

NRL to trial shot clock in Eels Raiders match

The NRL will trial the shot clock for the first time in the top grade with time limits to be placed on the Parramatta and Canberra game on Sunday.

With the Eels and Raiders out of finals contention both clubs agreed to allow the trial to take place. Line dropouts must start within 30 seconds while scrums needs to be formed by 35 seconds otherwise the infringing team will be penalised.

Canberra Raiders involved in shot clock trial

Following trials in the Auckland Nines and Holden Cup competition, the Eels-Raiders clash will be the first time the shot clock has been used in a Telstra Premiership fixture ahead of its permanent introduction at the start of the 2016 season.

"Both Parramatta and Canberra have agreed to allow us to use their game on Sunday to continue our trials of the shot clock technology and we certainly appreciate their support through this process," NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg said.

"This is an opportunity not only to continue to trial the technology and fine-tune the rules attached to the shot clock, but also for fans to get their first look at what will be an important innovation for the game in 2016."

I don't like the idea of different time limits. Thats 1 extra thing for the refs to police, and know the difference, and more importantly, GET RIGHT. There is a reason in basketball & NFL its 1 time limit. So, if 30secs is the mark, stick with it. If 35secs is better, or even the NFL's 40secs, whatever, PICK 1!

Someone still has to start/ choose the correct countdown though.
If its the same every time, you just hit the button.

I like how inept everyone thinks the refs are that we can't trust them to press the right button.
We have a decision. We're going to the board.

You can see that Jarrod Croker initiates the contact.

Really hope this shot clock trial won't affect Croker's chances of being top point scorer again. He deserves it so much. **** me to tears every time the Nine commentators discuss the top goal kickers in the comp without ever mentioning Croker - even though Croker probably has the best percentage this year.

Shot clock will favour Raiders: Croker

The NRL shot clock to be tested in Canberra's clash against Parramatta on Sunday will play right into the Raiders' game plan, according to skipper Jarrod Croker.

"We think we've got a pretty fit forward pack, so it'll play in our hands a little bit," he said on Thursday.

But in saying that, there are times in the game when teams do kick the ball out to get a breather, so that won't be happening. It should be a fast game. I'm sure the big boys are pretty excited by it all."

A shot clock on the VR is what is needed also, they already do it in SL.

It is a Raiders game so it usually takes one look to award a no try.

So there's 35 seconds to pack a scrum, but will that stop scrums being re-packed 3 times before play continues, as per what usually happens?

My understanding is its just 35secs to pack it the 1st time. Re-setting it is a ref issue.

We should only play in white from now on and change our name to the Canberra capitulators. Korbin Sims is yet another to challenge the MRC and come away with a different decision from the judiciary. You never never know if you don't 'have a go'.

There are 2 time clocks in the NFL. 40 secs and 25 seconds. 25 is used after certain administration stoppages and delay of game penalties.

NRL Match Preview: Raiders v Eels

Whilst the curtain is prematurely closing on the Canberra Raiders’ 2015 season with the side unable to make the semi-finals, the Green Machine is certainly preparing to go out with a bang when they face the Parramatta Eels at Pirtek Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

“We’re disappointed that we won’t be playing in the semi-finals but we still want to finish the year off strongly with a few consecutive wins just like we did last year,” Paul Vaughan said.

“It’s very important to go into pre-season and the start of the 2016 season with a bit of momentum built up from the previous year.

“It’s also a bit of a pride thing; you want to do your best every time you run out onto the field and make your fans proud. Although we can’t make the semi-finals, there’s still plenty to play for.”

Don't think this new shot clock applies to kicking for goal - just scrums and dropouts.

The Who Cares Cup: Canberra Raiders and Parramatta Eels face off

Brisbane Broncos versus Melbourne Storm? Please. Sydney Roosters versus South Sydney Rabbitohs? Yawn. There's one game this round - the final round of the NRL for 2015 - that trumps them all. It's the epic clash at Parramatta Stadium between the Parramatta Eels and Canberra Raiders, of course. There's even a trophy on offer: The Who Cares Cup.

Not me, that's for sure. I'll watch the game, and probably cheer on the Raiders like I do most weeks. But as far as a caring about a result? Nope, not interested.
