    You're right - but the concern is the abuse of it - dragging out a stoppage.
    I'm not saying I'm against it - I'm happy to keep an open mind and see how it goes.
    More than anything, I just don't want to see league go the way of union (what was the running game is now a snoozefest) and god forbid if it ever becomes anything like American football - I'd switch off in a heartbeat and find a new hobby.
    Just don't kill the game with too many technicalities - that's my main ask.

    Im sure it cant get that bad! Lol
    It could make the game a little slower, but i dont think that it will significantly do so. I guess we will have to wait and see though.

    It won't slow the game down, well our games anyway, while Jackson is challenging Sutton will allow the game to continue.

    Ha ha, correct.
    Then Jacko won’t get back in the line in time allowing the opposition to score...

    Oh man that was absolute bullshit when that happened. Call him out but don't let him get back on side before calling play on.

    I kinda agree with this article. But in the comments section, lol at 'Bungers'. 'Greenbergenstein' :tearsofjoy: I like his 1 and 3 points, but no about in-goal touchies. We've been there, done that, and it was an abject failure. But the in-goal touchies were a great target for vicious sledging if you happened to have seats behind the goalposts :D

    Fuck this sport is backwards.
    Nothing more than a gimmick to add to the spectacle of the sport. Bought to you by KFC on the big screen.
