We'll regret spending big dollars on any of the names being touted in the halfback merry go round.....

No doubt the pendulum will swing back the other way and similar tackles later in the season will be completely ignored. It is making a farce of the game.
Given V'landys has already admitted that the referees were over zealous on the weekend, it is an absolute certainty.
