    Re: Cavalry Charge

    If they do it after I've warned "no charge" then they deserve to be penalized.

    And if they line up near the goal line like a charge is coming, I tell them. Every time

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    Yup. If I'm not refereeing and helping the team I coach, I do the whole charm offensive with the referee, home or away. "Great to see you, looking forward to it. Anything we can do to help you?" and...

    [Junior] Re: Knocked out but played on

    Bad.

    We had a kid knocked out yesterday at our 7s. Sparko for a good 30 seconds.
    The Coach did the right thing and pulled him for the rest of the day.

    What you outline is de facto dangerous...

    Good catch. I thought they'd done that one.
    Negro Mountain got changed. And that was considered the polite name.

    Damn. Now I can't remember which NA name did get changed.

    I don't go to...

    I'd be interested to know the backstory a bit more. Were they in changing rooms, did you warn them etc etc...

    You're not the only ones.
  7. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Wrongity wrong. The Patawomeck friends I have hate the name. There is a NA campaign to get it changed, in the same way that the Indian Head Highway got its name changed recently.

    Washington Redskins - still here. Because Dan Snyder has sold his soul to Satan and will live forever, and he will never relinquish the team or the name.

    [Law] Re: Penalties and keeping track of them

    I don't think I adjust my standards, I think my tendency to play advantage may change a bit.

    You always want a couple of "statement penalties" you can make. Not rolling away, off feet, middle of...

    When I hear "Saracens is meant as a compliment/tribute" I am reminded of the owner of the local NFL team insisting that there ain't nuthin wrong with callin the team Redskins

    You mean the song that had the verse about crushing the rebellious Scots with Marshal Wade? That's your version of a unifying anthem? Yeah. No.

    Close enough!

    Re: The crusade continues

    A quick search of Google points out just how ridiculous your last sentence is.
  16. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    So, to be clear, you're avoiding your responsibilities under Law 9.27, and for offences which are specifically called out under Regulation 17?

    And by "let the players sort it out" you mean?
  17. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Go on. What is the grey area on slurs? I'm interested. This sounds like old white men trying to find excuses to call people whatever the hell they like.
  18. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    World Rugby disagree with you, as the sanction table I laid out upthread shows.

    Are we really taking this to the point where we're trying to decide what kind of homophobic abuse is acceptable?...
  19. Re: Do you walk through the tunnel after the game?

    There is a club in the Portsmouth area who have a beer mug set aside for the referee, and the beer was (is?) free.

  20. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Well, it's not being used as a compliment, is it? It's being used that way precisely because of the connotations. No better than "homo" or "fag".

    No tolerance. Offski.

    God, coaching a referee after a 97-8 game is not a great experience.
