Re: Don't Blame Refs Please!!

I listened to Grandstand last night and have watched the replay of the game and the Bulldogs try

I will try and explain how Daniel Anderson and David Morrow explained how the try was a 50-50 call

Don't go and shoot the bloody messenger though (Especially you Col ;) )

What Anderson's concern was because Ayshford attempts to tackle the decoy before the ball carrier had passed behind the decoy technically Ayshford has made a misread because the ball carrier can't pass to the decoy as it would be a forward pass and that Ayshford initates the contact .

My argument to that is that Ayshford doesn't have a choice in my opinion

But as I said thats coming from an NRL coach and if anyone has some idea it would be him (Possibly)

The only way this can be fixed is if they ban decoy runners (not going to happen) or if the decoy crosses the path or touches any defender the advantage goes to the defensive team with any call made

If anyone else has any ideas please put them up Happy fingers are getting splinters from scratching his head

No- youre right, Ayshford had NO choice, the decoy runner made contact with him...Ayshford made no decision, the decoy and Prichard made the decisions.

Lefty twats Loved it :roll

Be that as it may Ink

What the answer to the decoys , shepherds and interference

The problem is every time we make a rule the Haslers ,Bellamy's and the like go straight out to the technical guys and they find a way around it :bash
