    So far, so good with the bunker. Nice and quick replays and doesn't seem to delay the game like the video ref used to.

    Was watching the Tigers stream at the same time so missed most of the decisions. So did they actually get them alright?

    they were all pretty cut and dry to be honest except for a try to Blake, I was hoping with the Bunker they would do away with making the ref guess.

    That Blake try I did actually take notice of, and it was a pearler as far as making a decision on. But what do you mean by making the ref guess? Did they refer that one back to the ref? I had the volume down.

    The ref still refers a decision upstairs so if they don't have enough evidence to overturn they stick with the decision. I hate it.

    Go to the video ref, if he can't see it then give it refs call. Which would be better because he can see the replays live at the ground which would help either reinforce his original decision or change it.

    As far as I'm concerned, they have spent a gazillion on this and have infinitely more resources at their disposal then the Ref in real time. If the ref is not sure and refers it to the Bunker, then the buck should surely stop with the Bunker? I don't care if every decision ends up referred to the Bunker, as long as the Bunker takes the responsibility of calling it.

    In what parallel universe can ALL THAT TECHNOLOGY not be better for making a decision verses a real time decision by a ref who has no replay and may not be in position.

    Worst rule ever. I don't know so I'll guess and see how long it takes for you to prove me wrong. Then laugh when everyone blames you the video ref for getting it wrong because it's obvious it's no try, you watched it 1000 times but you can't prove beyond doubt so you have to go with my guess. Biggest joke ever.

    And the flip side is when the ref sends it upstairs "I've got a try, can you check obstruction"
    Then the video ref slows it down and notices that Woods jersey brushed Thaidays left pinky about 3 sets of hands from where the try was scored. Thaiday couldn't have covered that ground if it was a free ticket to an all you can eat buffet at the casino.

    How good was it?  Fast and accurate.  Allthough the on-field muppets managed to destroy everyone else's hard work Monday night.

    I thought they made two mistakes one was obvious (Teddy's try) and the second was opinion (Lowe's try) but overall I thought it was fantastic.

    I thought both were borderline.  Personally think double movement is an archaic rule.

    I thought Teddy one was blatantly knocked forward but I'm happy it wasn't because it was 20pt player for one of my fantasy players.

    Teddy try to me proved it won't be perfect, but having multiple replays in time with each other means I think it will be more accurate, and it was certainly a lot quicker, so it's a yes for me.

    I think the general feeling will be a resounding yes, the only thing that confuses me is I don't know where to look haha. Hopefully they can stop showing the actually Bunker when the need to promote it dies down and just give us the four screens they're looking at.

    I think they should show a shot of an old phone booth for a second, then cut to inside from behind Patten like they were, but with him wearing a Tom Baker hat and scarf  Very Happy

    Id prefer it if they played the Get Smart opener, with Patten walking through all the doors to get to the Bunker.

    Since the commencement of the NRL season there has been a train of thought that referee Jared Maxwell relies too heavily on the new NRL video bunker.
    We thought we would follow Maxwell around for a day to determine if he does in fact rely on it a tad too much.
    Here is a day in the life of referee Jared Maxwell.
    Maxwell wakes up and looks at his mobile phone immediately to see the time is 10:30 am. He had a meeting with referee’s coach Tony Archer at 9:00am at NRL headquarters. His wife begins to stir next to him.
    Maxwell: Jesus Christ! Darl. Darl! My bloody iPhone alarm didn’t go off again!
    Mrs. Maxwell: Jared, are you sure you set your alarm? You know how forgetful you’re becoming.
    Maxwell: Rubbish! Of course I set my alarm darl! It’s this bloody phone! It’s on the fritz I tell ya.
    Mrs. Maxwell: Are you positive you set the alarm?
    Maxwell: I better check with the bunker.
    Mrs. Maxwell: No Jared, not again. Leave them alone…
    Maxwell: (calling the video bunker) Hi yes, I just want to confirm the 9:00am alarm was set on my iPhone last night?
    Bunker: Jared, this is a gross misuse of this technology…
    Maxwell: Please confirm whether or not the alarm was set! I have a meeting with Tony Archer!
    Bunker: (sighs) Vision in the top left corner of the screen shows that no alarm was set for this morning Jared.
    Maxwell: Shit!
    Outside NRL headquarters, now two and a half hours late for his meeting with referee boss, Tony Archer, Maxwell finds the perfect parking spot in front of the building. The only problem is that it requires Maxwell to execute a parallel park, not one of his strong suits.
    Maxwell: (on his phone) Bunker! I’m just outside NRL headquarters, still running late for that meeting with Tony Archer, need confirmation on this parallel park.
    Bunker: Jared, this can’t continue mate, I could lose my job. It’s getting beyond a joke.
    Maxwell: Please! I’m shocking with parallel parks! I need to make this as quick as possible. And I think it’s Todd Greenberg’s car behind me. I don’t want to ding it.
    Bunker: Ok Jared, bottom right vision has you coming in perfectly. Come back, come back, stop. Move forward, straighten, now reverse. Come back, come back, stop. There. Parallel park perfectly done. Oh and our records show it isn’t Greenberg’s car, it is in fact Ricky Stuart’s car that’s behind you.
    Maxwell: Really?
    Maxwell then repeatedly reverses his car into Stuart’s.
    Maxwell finally makes it into the conference room with Tony Archer. After being chastised for his tardiness, the meeting gets under way.
    Archer: Look Jared, I asked you along for this chat because prior to the season’s commencement you assured me that you weren’t going to rely too heavily on the video bunker. I turn on the Rabbitohs/Roosters match on Sunday to see you reviewing everything.
    Maxwell: I never said I wouldn’t rely on the video bunker.
    Archer: On the 25th of February you explicitly assured me that you would not use the video bunker as a crutch.
    Maxwell pulls out his mobile and holds up a finger to Archer as if to say, “one moment please”, much to Archer’s surprise.
    Maxwell: Yes bunker, it’s me again, can we confirm whether or not I promised Mr. Archer here that I wouldn’t use the bunker as much?
    Bunker: Gladly.
    Maxwell: (whispers to Archer) Bunker’s on it.
    Archer: (shaking his head in disbelief) Unbelievable.
    Bunker: All four screens confirm that you did in fact promise Mr. Archer that you wouldn’t use the bunker too often.
    Maxwell: Oops….
