Radrada broke this record for the Eels, poor Steve Ella, as both of them were wrong calls from incompetent video referees.

I mean lets get **** serious about this, it's really only a race for #2. There is no **** way... NONE. ZIP. NADA. NO CHANCE! that Crusher's "the beams were cut" doesnt come in first.

The rest of the list though is a real noodle scratcher

GEM is a faded shadow of Crusher's tinfoil lunacy.

Not even in the ballpark.

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.

So happy for the boys with that win. Although refs made some bad decisions, the boys controlled their own destiny in a positive way.

what I took out of that match:
Bateman stood up.
Croker was outstanding.
Hodgson has to be the next guy re-signed + upgraded (assuming wighton already has been)
Vaughany + Fenno had absolute barry crockers
Pick the round we will get more than #oneinarow Winner - Round 8 (Wests + Bunnies)

You know you're struggling as a halfback when your defence is the highlight of your performance.

Good call. Massive improvement
Agreed. He's been great in the last 2 months. He's really improved his work coming off our goal line too. Finally making use of his natural size.
One of my favourite moments this week was Waqa putting Edrick in space in a similar way to what Edrick did last week.

Surely you can't rate it above the claims that are crowd number reporting is 100% accurate and there are measures in place to ensure there id definitely no fudging of figures.

I think the notion that there's an imaginary group called the "Usual Suspects" on the GH that all come together when they see the bat signal in the sky is top 20 worthy.

Just saw the highlights and both looked a bit suss. I'd go even further and suggest that if Ed Lee or any raiders player scores in a similar fashion it gets turned down.

Is it too late for a nomination in the tinfoil hat cup?

GE what are the rules with the sinbin? I'm not sure what minute Sisa was binned but was he allowed back on for the start of golden point? I'm just wondering if he was binned within the last ten minutes (e.g the 75th minute) - would he have to wait until 5 minutes into golden point to return to the field?

When sin binned before halftime , the halftime break does not include the time in the bin

Im sure Sisa didnt come back on until 2 mins into the extra time , therefore completing his 10 min

He had to sit out the first 2 minutes and about 20-30 seconds of GP. Which he did.
Sin bin is quite simply 10 minutes of clocked game time, so when time isnt running, neither is a sin bin. Breaks for HT/GP dont count, sin bin doesnt carry over to the following game
