    I'm still waiting for the NRL to review its two referee policy.
    Surely they have had time to realise it has been an abject failure.
    Not only are we getting more penalties, a difference of interpretations between the two pinkies, but it is diluting the referee talent pool (an oxymoron, I know).
    To me, this is the biggest issue in the NRL. Everyone seems to want to tinker with minor rules, yet this has been the biggest rule change in history. When has having two bosses ever worked?

      That reminded me of what Manly players and Hasler said after the first trial in 2008 under the two referees. Was against Storm at Gosford. Can't find Hasler's comments on google but Orford says the same thing. Six years ago it was obvious from the start what the problem would be.

      If they didn't learn from the 1995 GF, why would they learn when the mistake is made in a less important game?

      Rothfield probably read it on our website, or another footy forum, or is pushing Ray Hadley's agenda or is........

      In short not his idea.

      I'd just like to make a couple of things clear...
      1 You can never drink too much.
      2 Rothfield and sense in the same sentence constitute an oxymoron.
