    Flannagan probably still sore that he isnt allowed to inject his players with peds and is taking it out on the refs.

    Can you not see the video? Took a while to load up but its pretty conclusive. Looks like cellphone footage from the stands...

    Not on that link, but I just saw the nrl360 replay before with the different angle. Definitely misses his hand, good job refs.

    This is the issue...lived in Melb/Victoria for 6 years.....played AFL and it's a really good game to play. Only contact sport I know where anyone of any size can play. Very good to watch live as well...but it's not a sport designed for TV due to the space and off the ball running required. Hence NRL viewing figures are genuinely bigger than AFL, but they get the masses to watch the game live. something the NRL are struggling to do.

    I live in Sydney and not really a fan of Melbourne. However, one thing I do like about the city is the easy access to all stadiums. Their a short walk from the train station and contained within the CBD.

    Unlke Alliance and ANZ. It makes a hell of a difference for families and people in general to attend the games.

    That is why I believe Auckland needs the waterfront stadium, it will increase Warriors crowds.

    That was a good watch. Had to laugh at Rothfield who always pushes the negative on the NRL, crowds and refereeing. He was defending his Sharks but was getting put in his place.

    Agree with Greenberg that coaches need to accept losses better instead of just rant at the refs every loss. Sure it is disappointing that your season over after all of the work you put in but your players did make mistakes. It comes off as silly when it is found out you were wrong or like Flanagan there is video of you a few years ago saying the Cowboys should just live with the refs decisions as sometimes they don't go your way.

    Flanagan would see that unfair play and how the refs treat our team week in week out if he was our coach.
    Be one broke dude if he was here.

    i think the thing is for me you have to earn the right to have your coach stand up and slander the refs for you and the warriors havent earnt that right in years.

    As funny as that statement is it also reflects that he hasn't really learnt a lesson from being banned for a year. One of the reasons he was banned was for him to learn his responsibilities as a coach. The NRL used the reasoning that the coach needs to look after their players welfare.

    Sure a professional coach is worried about winning. But this guy should be on his best behaviour as he is lucky to still have a job.

    Agree, sometimes I feel we get harshly done by, but it has to be close game before the coach can have a crack at them. We get one harsh call and fall to pieces all too often

    Just booking a ticket for the Parra Game on Saturday.

    Was trying booking a ticket in the Cowboys section and the cost of adult ticket was $40 with the most expensive being $70.

    Is it me or are th tickets quite expensive! Given the game is at ANZ with limited away support, shouldn't the tickets be capped at $45-$50 per ticket.

    I'm hoping Parra can have a 40k crowd for the game, at those prices I think not.

    looking at the crowds at the games so far, once your in, you could pretty much sit where u like.

    That is a good point. However, the pricing is likely to turn people away.
